Hello Peeps,
  Today's card is one of my favorites.  I think it can be used for many different occasions. I like the old time effect that the Sin City Stamp Set Correspondence Pens, Ink & Postage gives to the card. I have created the card using the collage technique.

  Grunge stamp
  Various collage pieces
  Brown  and black ink
  Cream colored card stock
  Foam Tape

Step 1:  Stamp the background using the script background stamp in brown.

Step 2:  Using brown ink blend/ink the edges of the card layer.  Add grunge spots to age/fill in the layer.  Not shown in this picture but, added to layer was additional stamping of the flourish stamp from this set to fill  in the open spaces.

Step 3:  Stamp in black ink various stamps: pen, ink well, postage stamps and cancellation mark.  Cut out all of these stamps to be added to card.

Step 4:  Start assembling card layer by adding various collage pieces using foam tape to give the layer depth.
  I even stapled one of the pieces onto the layer.

Step 5:  Continue to layer on the pieces including the stamped pieces from the stamp set. Placement of collage pieces is always by personal preference.  I choose to rough up the edges of this layer to give it an even greater aged look.

Step 6:  Attach to cream card base.

I hope you like this card as much as I do.  As always, feel free to take this design and make it your own by adding which ever pieces you like.
