VS Challenge #23 “Distress” it

Good morning everyone! It’s the 1st of the month so I have a project to share with you. For this month our theme is distressing. There are just so many different ways to distress and hard to pick one but I went for my favorite way. When I first began to craft one of the first techniques i learned was how to make the edges of your card look worn out. To do that you take your bone folder and run the edge of it against the side of the card. Of course you can buy the tool to do that but I was on a budget and I liked how it came out. Another technique that I also love to do is add some Tim holts distress ink to the sides of the card. These techniques definitely give the card a funky look that I just love.

I also added a shaker to my card because its all the rage now and i just LOOOVVVEEEE making them. Oh and my son loves it too, lol. They are fun and easy to do and I might make a video on how I did mine.  The stamps and die cuts I used are from Lawn Fawn and can be purchased in my shop. You can also purchase the floral sequins. The paper pad I used is one of my favorites from American crafts. It is the PLUS ONE amy tangerine 6×6 pad which is also available in the shop.
