For the cover, I used the Imaginarium Designs Edward Relief Corners, which fit perfectly along the top and bottom of the Cabinet Card. I also added a resin frame, treated with Distress Ink in Vintage Photo and with some gold highlights using Luminarte Silks Acrylic Glaze in Emperor's Gold - I then painted the frame with Mod Podge Matte to seal the colour. I added some gorgeous Prima roses and some Petaloo flowers, which I sprayed with Tattered Angels Glimmer Mist in Nougat and then splashed with some very strongly brewed instant coffee. The lace on the frame and on the album rings was also dyed with the instant coffee. Along with the lace, the brown tulle and twine make a great embellishment for the album rings. Finally, I added a few Idea-ology metal trinkets by Tim Holtz, as well as a Prima Junkyard Findings Special Screw to use to tie the album closed.
