I like the faux vintage photo technique. Thoughts? 

   Guy Greetings

   Pecan Pie A-2
   Basic Black 5-3/8 x 4-1/8, 2-5/8 x 3-5/8
   Going Places DSP 5-1/4 x 4
   Glossy White 2-1/2 x 3-1/2
   Basic White 5-1/4 x 4 (Inside)

   Pecan Pie
   Crumb Cake
   Cinnamon Cider
   Jet Black StazOn

   Faux Vintage Photos

   Antique Corners & Sliders
   Masking Paper
   Glue Dots

First, I masked about 1/4" on all four sides of a glossy white panel, using Masking Paper. This created the border around the photograph.

I then stamped my image, using Jet Black StazOn ink. Allowed the ink to dry. 

Next, I sponged on shades of browns. I used Crumb Cake, Cinnamon Cider, and Pecan Pie. 

Let the panel dry completely.

I then wiped the panel with a bit of tissue to pick up any ink before it smudged. 

Next, I carefully removed the masking paper. I left the border as is, but you can deckle the edges, tear it, or add a few spots. I added some photo corners from my stash, using a glue dot for each one.

I then adhered it to a Basic Black matte.

I adhered the Going Places DSP panel onto a Basic Black matte, and then onto a Pecan Pie card front.

Next, I added the vintage photo panel onto the top half of the card front. I used liquid adhesive, but you can also use dimensionals or your favorite adhesive.

I then stamped the sentiment on the lower half of the card front. I stamped directly onto the DSP, but you can also choose to add a tag or decorative die cut. I did not want to draw the attention away from the photograph.

Lastly, I added a Basic White panel to the inside of the card.
