This card was another "reject" from my submissions to Paper Crafts magazine
Again, this was a very easy card, but I loved the way it turned out. Here's how I did it:

I smeared various colors of Distress Ink over the "debossed" side of my embossing folder and lightly spritzed it with water. Then, I placed a piece of white cardstock into the folder and ran it through my Cuttlebug. I love how it just colors the flat surfaces and keeps the raised embossed area white.

I adhered the embossed paper onto a slightly larger piece of kraft paper, and then adhered that onto a slightly larger piece of a slightly darker kraft paper. These layers were then adhered to my white card base.

I then stamped the sentiment - with black ink - onto a banner strip and adhered it to the card. 

Finally, I added pewter adhesive-backed metal embellishments on the sentiment and in random areas on the embossed image.

Here's my supplies:
Thanks for looking!
