Distressed


I bought this pretty Darice embossing folder in America and mad a quick and simple distressed card. I used Core'dinations in 2 shades of yummy purple. I tore the darker card and then sanded the embossed card. I added some roses and sweetheart blossoms and that was it, simples.

Love the embossing folder, really pretty. I like to sand them and then run gilding wax over the raised bits. The flowers are a perfect addition to a lovely card. Hugs, Carol S.xx
