There are two versions of this particular black and white photo card: full and cropped.
Full photo version directions:
Cut white cardstock to 8.5" x 5.5". Fold in half to create a card measuring 4.25" x 5.5".
Sponge black dye ink around edges of photo.
Using Soot Black Distressed ink, stamp crackle image on a piece of white cardstock. Mist heavily, causing the ink to spread out, halting the process with a heat gun or craft iron. You can remist if it has not spread enough.
Layer photo over crackle image and cut a border using laying ruler. Sponge edge with black ink.
Attach the crackle/photo layers to black text weight paper and trim to a narrow border using layering rulers.
Stamp the flourish border image around all four edges of card base, using black dye ink. Sponge edges.
Attach your layered photo to center of card base.
Cropped version directions:
Follow steps 1 through 4 for full version.
Using black ink, stamp the windmill image in the lower right corner of the card base.
Sponge around the edges with black ink.
Attach photo layer to upper left of card base. It can cover parts of your stamped image.
TIP: If your stamps and photos will work together in a scrap book, they will probably work together on a card.
