To create this A2 card I began with a deep brown cardstock base and then cut a smaller layer in the same color, crimped this and adhered it to the card. Then I took a smaller piece of kraft paper and used an EK border punch along the side and crimped that piece as well. I rubbed a brown distress ink direct to paper and I loved how the ink just hit the top of the crimping. I know this is a kind of older technique, but I really like and and may do it again soon. Anyhoo, after that I diecut a tag, blended some distress inks which I sprayed with water, stamped the house image in brown stazon, used some jute to tie a bow and adhered it to the Kraft layer. Lastly, I stamped the sentiment from another set onto white cardstock, and adhered this to a scrap of brown polka dot paper and slipped it under the Kraft paper. A little labor intensive, but I enjoyed doing it!
