Christmas Card Challenges #6 – Rip, Sand, Tear

Welcome back, crafty friends! Today brings a new Christmas Card Challenge! This week, we’re challenging you to distress something on your card (rip, sand or tear).

I distressed the edges of my main embossed image. I originally wanted to tear the red patterned paper, but it was a bit too much, so I stuck with a simple touch of the technique instead.

Supplies: watermark ink (VersaMark), gold and white opaque embossing powder (JudiKins), seam binding ribbon (Stampin’ UP!), houndstooth paper (SEI), gold glitter brads (American Crafts), image and sentiment stamps (Gourmet Rubber Stamps), patterned paper (Echo Park – Very Merry Christmas).
All of our challenges are optional…the only “real” rule is that you must create a new Christmas, Holiday or Hannukah card, then link it up on our blog so we can stop by and say hi!

It’s not necessary that you use a Sparkle Creations Rubber Stamp on your card, but we sure love it when you do!

Don’t forget to visit the rest of the CCC team to take a peek at the fun and festive cards they’ve created this week: AlannaCorinneJennifer, JovitaKarenKatieLeesaLorie,MargoMichelePatStephanie…and our guest designer Rachel!

Thanks so much for stopping by! Hope you have a wonderful week, and don’t forget to link your entry on the Christmas Card Challenges blog! See you there!
