Distress a greeting or gift card to give it dimension

My goal was to keep the card making super simple.

The black paper came from my stash. I think it was once a presentation folder because it had pre-cut slits like where a business car could go.  I used them to slip my paper inside. Here’s what it looked like pre-distressing. Kinda boing 🙁

So I fixed it!

To distress the edge of the paper you simply swipe the pad on the edges with a light touch. I like these StazOn minis as they are just the right size to grip.

(And now that I see the distressing on the lines from where the folder folded I realize I want to do that same thing to top card!)
