I started with a blank card, some lace, a luggage tag, vintage layered sticker, and some washi tape. I gather a lot of things with the same theme ('vintage-style' for instance) and then see which ones I use.
Next I lay the items over to card to work out where each will go and in what order. I find that this is better than layering up as you go along but I'm sure you could pull that off nicer than I could.
Now I start to build the card. Glue is my worst enemy because its so easy to get your fingers and card dirty but its also my best friend because it's an invisible way to attach things like lace as it dries clear.
I like to add a little extra length to my lace when I cut it to the sides of the card so that I can fold it over and glue it on the back to create a neater finish.
Trimming the luggage tag down to fit to the card at the right angle is a little tricky, I think I tweaked mine too much because it's ended up a bit small. If you can notice, the pattern builds up layers that are either going straight across the card or at an angle.
So finished it is. Next time I would change a few things, but I hope you enjoyed watching the process.
