When I saw that denim was one of the colours I knew I had to use this jeans backing paper. It was a download, but I can't remember where I got. If anyone recognises it, please let me know. The page is actually A4 in size, but I printed it much smaller and made it fit a standard A2 card. I distressed the edge - a bit like frayed denim and I used my scalpel to cut open the pocket. The card base was made from some SU Early Espresso card folded to A2 size, with a simple mat of Crumb Cake withe the edges distressed.
I made the little notepaper by stamping the Uniko time card image, tearing it down, punched the border and stamped the various sentiments. Then I screwed it up, opened it out and smoothed it and brushed over some crumb cake, giving the suggestion that it had been screwed up in the pocket. I attached a guitar tag to the paper in the pocket. To give it a really grungy feeling I attached the inspiration sentiment with a staple and paperclip. This card is already on its way to Ben.
It was really sunny when I made this card and I ended up taking lots of photos to try and get a good representation of the card. The main image is best view of the card, but I think in the small picture below - the paper really does look like denim!!
