A Memory Lasts Forever

I made this card with some new stamps I just got today. I used distress ink and pearl mist for the background.

Card stock - Black, White (Stampin' Up)
Embossed Card Stock - Katydid (Core Impression: Cosmo Cricket Classics Collection)
Clear Stamp - Say Cheese (Lawn Fawn)
Wood Stamp - International Skyline (Hero Arts)

Distress Ink - Broken China, Frayed Burlap (Tim Holtz)
Spray Mist - Perfect Pearls Mist - Interference Red (Ranger)
Twine - Charcoal (The Twinery)
Small Library Clip - Black (Stampin' Up)
Tools - Embossing gun, sponges

1. Make card from card stock - Finished size 4.25 x 5.5
2. Cut embossed card stock to 5 x 3.75 
3. Cut 2.5 x 2.5 square and sponge on distress ink then spray with pearl mist
4. Dry square with heat gun then stamp skyline 
5. Stamp Polaroid, cut out and adhere small square, then adhere to embossed card stock with foam tape
6. Add twine and library clip and adhere embossed paper to card
