Distressed Patterns...

Hi there!

The sun has been MIA today - at least I can't feel like I've missed out as I've been invigilating this afternoon. Now I'm home, changed and ready to do a bit of blogging, crafting and photo taking! What have you been up to this afternoon?

Creative inspiration today comes in the form of another masculine card. Switch up the sentiment and you could easily make it into a card for Dad! 

Stamp Set: Best Dad Ever
Ink: Early Espresso
Cardstock: Marina Mist
DSP: Parker's Patterns

Did you check out that video I made a couple weeks ago of the distressed edges? If you missed it you can catch it here. Its simple really, just some blocks of pattern paper, distressed and then adhered to the card - I left the edges free so they could be roughed up a bit and have some form.

This is the kind of card that switch out the pattern paper, choose a coordinating card base and you can make lots of super quick cards with very little material! What a great way to use up all that pretty paper you've got stashed away, right?

If you're lacking in the paper department, Stampin' Up! have some paper half price at the moment in their last chance sale -

Here's the retiring Stamps List and the Accessories List.

Items are while stocks last so to grab a bargain you need to be quick!

Stampin' Hugs,
