Papertrey Ink has a tutorial about making your own background using stamps for Make It Monday #174. It looked cool so I decided to try it out. My first couple of tries were duds! I was rushing things so the diamonds were super crooked. I was more careful with this one and I am pretty happy with how it turned out. I popped up the Chrysler Building, which is my favorite building in NYC. I love that Art Deco look.
All the stamps used are from City Scene by Papertrey Ink, which I was happy to finally use! Oh, except the sentiment. That's from their Road Trip stamp set.
My husband and I live near the NYC so I am going to use this card to ask him out on a date. Of course, he will say yes ;-)
