Elements of Style by Anna Black

My friend Anna made this beautiful card. She stamped in Chocolate Chip Ink and colored in the flowers with the Stampin' Pastels. The overlay of Pretty in Pink cardstock was crushed and peeled away to create the soft look of suede.

One of the easiest ways to create the Faux Suede look is to send your cardstock through the Crimper at least 12 times while turning with each crimp. Then smooth it out with your Bone Folder and then peel apart from the corner. You'll know it's ready because the corners will separate on their own. Give it a try!

Stamp Set: Elements of Style from the Summer Mini Catalog
