Distressing the Merry Music Designer Paper!!!

By distressing the Merry Music Designer Paper, it makes it look rustic and I love the texture!!! What do you think?!?!?!Distressing the Merry Music Designer Paper, www.LaurasStampPad.com

I love the glitter and shine that goes with the distressed look. This is a rather simple Christmas card which is perfect for making multiples!!!

I started  with a Crumb Cake card base. Next, I took a piece of Cherry Cobbler (4″ x  5-1/4″) and stamped the city image from the Night in Bethlehem Stamp Set in Cherry Cobbler Ink. Then I added this piece to the card front.

Now for the distressed technique! I simply took a piece of the Merry Music Designer Series Paper (2″ x 5″) and crumpled it up into a ball. Once I had it in a nice tight ball, I gently unrolled it back out. Be careful not to rip it as sometimes it gets soft and this designer paper is thinner. Next, I took a Sponge Dauber with some Early Espresso Ink and lightly brushed over the top. The ink picks up on the creases more for a nice distressed look. Once I had the look I wanted, I added adhesive on the back and placed it on the left side of the card. Be sure to just press it onto the paper all crinkled to keep that texture and distressed look!

Now for the greeting, I took a piece of Whisper White (1-1/2″ x 3-1/2″). I stamped the greeting in Cherry Cobbler Ink from the Night In Bethlehem Stamp Set. Next, I layered this onto a piece of Gold Glimmer Paper measuring 1-3/4″ x 3-3/4″. I added the greeting to the card front with Stampin’ Dimensionals. To finish it off, I added a few Metallic Enamel Shapes for a little bit more bling!
