Make It Monday #5 Distressed Edges

Tuesday, March 8, 2011

This week's Make It Monday is all about distressed edges.  I love this technique.  I used the blade of an exacto knife to shred the edges of this card just like I did on this card a while back.

All of the stamps on this card are from Button Boutique.  This set is so versatile.  I especially love the little stitching stamp over the grungeboard heart.  I'm not a sewer and I love that I can achieve this look without sewing!

Here's a little close up of the distressing!

Have a great day!!



Cardstock: PTI Lemon Tart
Stamps: PTI Button Boutique
Ink: Memento Black
Other: Grungeboard Tim Holtz, Cuttle Bug Letter Dies, PTI Heart Die

  2. This is really striking. I love the way you stamped the LOVE and then layered them over the sentiment.

  16. This is such a stunning card!! You have a great eye for detail and layouts!! I love it!! My PTI order arrived this week but this set isn't in my order as I won it in one of Nichole's anniversary giveaways (along with a billion squillion buttons - yay!!) and it still winging its way down under. Heading out to check out the rest of your blog-o now. xx
