PTI Stamp-a-Faire: Ancient Rome

Here is a Christmas card that I made using the technique shared by Lizzie Jones.

I used the die from the Ancient Rome kit to create a stencil. I then used the stencil, together with gold embossing paste to create the brick pattern at the bottom half of the card. On top, I just used one of the pattern paper that comes with the Ancient Rome kit.

I created the window using Poppy Stamps French Door die. I added some vellum to cover the window. For the background of the window, I simply colored a piece of white cardstock with some Broken China Distress Ink and a blending tool.

At the top of the window, I adhered a bow and a wreath that I created using the stamp set from the kit.

Since there is no sentiment at the front of the card, I added one inside the card using a sentiment from Think Big Favorites #8
