I started by gathering some card stocks. The 2 solids are from Cut Card Stock, Royal Sundance Felt Brilliant White and DCS Discount Canvas Textured Latte Tan. I chose a patterned paper I thought would work well with my photos.
I used a 4 x 6 inch photo tray and I printed my photos out on the Royal Sundance Felt Brilliant White card. I used this card stock because I like the texture it added to the vintage photos. I converted the photos to black and white.
Next I wanted to add a little color to the photos. I colored with pencils and chose colors that coordinate with the patterned paper used.
I cut the patterned paper into 4 x 6 inch panels and adhered to the photo tray. I used Score Tape for this step but other types of adhesives would work.
I trimmed my photos and matted with the Canvas Textured Latte Tan and Royal Sundance card stocks. I die cut some corner borders using the Royal Sundance. I also took a second sheet of the patterned paper used and fussy cut the flowers.
I added the photos and the fussy cut flowers with different thicknesses of foam tape for added dimension.
To finish, I adhered the corner borders with some flat back pearls. I die cut the "Sisters" title and 2 butterflies. The strip placed in the center was an afterthought and was cut from another sheet of patterned card stock.
