De-Stressing Before the Holidays

Here is a birthday card I made today using a bit of distressing to de-stress before the holidays are upon us.  Wow, is it really only 2 weeks until Thanksgiving?

11-11-13 Distress



  • Peacock and patterned papers (PaperSource)
  • Light blue paper (Bazzil)
  • White card stock is Georgia Pacific Image Plus
  • Gold embossing powder (Recollections)
  • Various Verses and Follow Your Dreams stamp sets (Gina K.)
  • Ribbon (Michael’s)
  • Petals embossing folder (Crafts-Too)
  • Classic Ovals LG, Lacey Ovals and Foliage (Spellbinders)
  • Advanced Tape Glider and Mounting Tape (Scotch)

The long strip of paper was torn before I embossed it.  The peacock (teal), light blue and patterned paper ovals were all cut with the Lacey Ovals die and then trimmed with scissors.  I did a bit of scuffing around the ovals using some fine sandpaper to distress a bit.  This was done for the Friends of Speedy TV challenge on MFP SpeedyTV.

Thanks for spending some time with me.
