Distressed Tasteful Touches Card

Hello and welcome! Today I would like to share with you my Stampin’ Up! Distressed Tasteful Touches Card! I love using distressing techniques so as soon as I saw the Old World Paper 3D Embossing Folder in the latest Stampin’ Up! Annual Catalogue I just knew I had to have it.

Let’s make it…

The (standard A6) card base is created from Whisper White Thick cardstock. I have then cut pieces of Basic Grey (4.5 x 10 cm), Grey Granite (5.1 x 10 cm) and Night of Navy (4 x 10 cm) cardstock.

These three pieces of cardstock were taped together on the back using washi tape. I then heat embossed some of the images from the Stampin’ Up! Tasteful Touches Stamp Set in White Stampin’ Emboss Powder.

These three pieces have then been embossed using the Old World Paper 3D Embossing Folder and further distressed using a distressing tool (you can also use the blade of a pair of scissors but please be careful) and a bit of corner folding! The pieces are adhered to the card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

The sentiment is heat embossed on Early Espresso cardstock in White Stampin’ Emboss Powder. The individual words are snipped out using Paper Snips and adhered to the card front using Mini Stampin’ Dimensionals.
