Masculine Card and Unique Technique

Today I made another Father's Day card but this time I used a fun and interesting technique. I'll start by showing my card I made and then I have included a tutorial as to how I did it. I hope you like it!

Here is a picture of three of the four things you'll need to make this card.
Tim Holtz Distress Ink in Shaded Lilac
Tim Holtz embossing folder for Sizzix
Core'dinations paper
Perfect Pearls Mist

1. Sand and crumple the paper and then open it back up and lay as flat as possible
2. Gently run ink pad over paper so it just touches raised crinkled parts.
3. Spray paper with Perfect Pearls Mist.
4. Put paper in embossing folder and run through your Cuttlebug machine.

5. Take a sponge daubber and gently rub ink over just the embossed image.
And that's it!
I was going to have this as a birthday card but needed another Father's Day card and thought it would be perfect. I sanded and inked and stamped the sentiment and added some Doodle Twine. I thought the white stood out too much so I rubbed my twine on my ink pad to give it a soft shade of blue where the white is. Finally, I assembled the card with my ATG tape gun.

Thanks for stopping by today.
