I was inspired by The Friday Mashup Challenge, Chip off the old block. and a Mojo Monday sketch for additional inspiration.
Chipboard and/or distressing....two things that are definitely WAY outside my comfort zone! and the distressing made me think of my card being run over by a reindeer! So I struck while the inspiration was hot, so to speak...
The butterflies are cut out of chipboard and the Well Worn DSP. I attached the DSP to the chipboard with adhesive sheets before I put it through the Big Shot. After that, I distressed a bit with Not Quite Navy ink and sanded the edges. The other DSP is all from the Well Worn DSP set, distressed along the edges with the edging tool and inked a bit. I made the flower by threading and gathering the crochet lace.
I also used my crimper on one piece of DSP to add a little more texture. No Christmas in this card at all!!
