Iv'e been trying to distress paper and fairly happy with the results. I was looking at distressing tools but decided i could find something in the house to do the job and ended up using a Ped Egg thing for hard skin on your feet. Works ok for me and at no cost.
Trying to do a bit more stamping, simple but hopefully effective. Edited. since making this one iv'e found a way to make the writing on the binder part look more slanted so it doesn't look so flat if you know what i mean. Will try to remember to post piccie.
I got a new cogwheel embossing folder so just had to try it out. Inked then rubbed the embossed card with metallic Wax. Not sure i like the wax ( and it don't really show up on this photo ) but will use it as it wasn't cheap lol.
Sue ( dragonlady ) asked me to make her brother-in-law a snooker themed card and this is what i came up with. The cue's are made up of brown paper and have bit's of white rubber glued in the ends. She had mentioned footy as well so inside is a bit of a Plymouth Argyle footy theme.
