Cuttlebug Be Inspired #16

Here is my card for this week's Cuttlebug Challenge Be Inspired challenge. We were to create a card with distressing.

Anyone who knows me, knows that I distress most of my cards to some point. I ink something or tear it or rough it up a bit. lol So, this was an easy challenge for me!!

I embossed the Doublemates cardstock with the Textile folder. Then, I used my thread cutter to really rough up the edges. I love to do this with DM cardstock because you get the opposite side's color to show up around the edges. I then inked the raised areas with Denim ink. Layered ito onto a piece of Treasures cardstock that was inked with Vintage Photo ink. I embossed a strip of the dark side of DM with the Allegro folder and attached it to panel. Stamped the images with Denim ink on Treasures cardstock and inked the edges of each piece. Layered onto card as shown. colored some Dew Drops with a navy Sharpie and glued to corner.

Materials: Doublemates-Ocean Blue, Treasures-Crafty Brown (WorldWin Papers), Emsossing folders-Textile, Allegro (ProvoCraft), Bluebird Stamps (Artistic Outpost), Adirondack Pigment Ink-Denim (Ranger), Distress Ink-Vintage Photo (Ranger), Thread Cutter (Tonic), Dew Drops (Robin's Nest), Sharpie-navy, Tape N Roller Plus (Kokuyo), Paper Trimmer (Fiskars)

Have a creatively wonderful day!
