Distressed Technique

Distressed designed cards are fast becoming popular. Its popularity stems from the shabby chic craze a few years ago and cards and scrapbook have now bought into the concept that aged, torn and otherwise "used" appearance of cards are now appealing. Vintage cards have always been popular but as a collectors focus but"faux" vintage cards can now be created without waiting for the cards to age on their own. Here are a few cards I made to appear slightly vintaged - a bit of a new and old appearance. The picture does not really show the torn appearance of the cards, it shows better in person. Anyway, I used the same Stampin Up set to create all these cards.
