My nephew's birthday is this week, and the Play Date Cafe colors were perfect for my personalized card! It's all about texture...an easy go-to for masculine cards! I really love using this embossing folder in brown tones as it's always reminded me of saddle/tooled leather! I finally used my new Tim Holtz alphabet die cuts, and I'll enjoy putting together some more cards with the same design using up the remaining letters...love a good word challenge game!
Finished with a little sanding for distressing, and used an emery board to get rid of the pesky little bits left after die cutting. Do you have another tip for dealing with that part of manual die cutting?! I'd love to hear it!
