Rustic and Rugged

Hi everyone!

Here's a card a made for my husband today. I wanted to use these great Autumn Harvest Rub Ons and make a distressed card since those are his favorite look in cards!
I began with a Soft Suede base(my favorite In Color) and the Autumn Tradtions DSP. I used the Woodgrain BG stamp on the designer paper then Clear embossed at stamp from the Autumn Days DSP. I sponged over the embossing and the Woodgrain stamp to give it a leathery worn feel. The pheasant rub ons went directly onto another pattern from the Autumn Tradtions paper which was also sponged with Soft Suede. More Mustard ribbon added a splash of color.
All supplies available from Stampin' Up!
Thanks for stopping by and enjoy your Friday!---Lisa :)

  • Just a word of's a little tricky to use a rub on over an embossed image...what WAS I thinking??? I managed to get it in position and used my White Signo Gel Pen for a little touch up!

  • A simple curling of the edge of your cardstock and designer paper can give your card the little extra something it needs for a wow effect...give it a try!
