Make it Monday–Distressing Edges

For this week’s Make it Monday (although I’m posting this on a Wednesday!) challenge, we had to distress the edge of something on a project. I decided to use white core cardstock with an impression plate. That’s how the project began…

When you use cardstock with a white core and then dry emboss it, you can sand it on top and wherever there is a raised edge will lose it’s color and turn white. Very cool effect!

First, I stamped the cardstock with a stamp from Button Boutique (LOVE that set). Then I used the canvas Impression Plate  - I impressed it on the front and back for extra texture. Then sanded it and distressed the edges with scissors. I really like how it turned out. Very vintage, indeed.
