My design comes from the Peachy Keen Stamp Sketch Challenge. I liked this sketch, bc it was simple and I still managed to make something I love!
Here's what I did.....
I cut out my pieces for the card first. I made sure I had all my sizes the way that I wanted them. I then took the front piece of card stock and embossed it with Copper embossting powder. Then I ran it through the Cuttlebug with the Distressed Stripes folder. When I did this, you could hear it crack, but apparently that is normal. Then I went over it with a sander and it started to tear. at first it irritated me, but then I realized that I could put it together on the card and it just added even more character to the card. I loved it!
Everything on this card is from CTMH except the embossing powder, ribbon and the Cuttlebug folder. The paper pack I used is called Passages. The stamp is from a set called Thank You. The ink color is Barn Red.
This is a great technique if you don't already have metalic papers (and I don't)! It was fun and simple to do. I hope you all try it! Thanks for stopping by and have a fabulous day!
