For my card I started with what I typically start with – a kraft cardbase and I roughed up the edges a bit with a distress tool. Next I layered up a the background with patterned paper from my scrap pile (I believe it’s MME’s Nostalgia). I edged the patterned paper with Picket Fence Distress Paint (a la Janelle) but once it dried it was pretty sheer and didn’t pick up in the photo, it shows up more in person. Lastly I stitched the edges. For the middle panel I embossed a rectangle of kraft with a quatrefoil embossing folder, distressed it, edged it with Picket Fence Distress Paint, edged with Vintage Photo Distress Ink and stitched the edges. Over this I layered a thin strip of patterned paper, also edged with Vintage Photo and adhered this to the background and wrapped it with twine thread. The sentiment panel is stamped using the frame from On Occasion the small flower and sentiment from Let It Be and die cut using the Occasion Frame Die. This was adhered with foam tape.
