Tutorial Thursday: Distressed Valentine Card

Today I made a little Valentine card using My Mind's Eye Love Me 12×12 kit pack

Valentine Card Tutorialand my new favorite tool, Prima Comfort Craft Distressing Tool

PrimadistresstoolThis tool is so awesome because it has a fine & rough rasp surface, metal distressing brush, edge scraper and bone folder!!!  AWESOME!!!!!  Okay, sorry….I'm a little excited….back to the tutorial…

Valentine Card Tutorial-3I cut out my pieces for my card from the paper, and popped out some of the diecuts from the accessory sheet that came in the pack.  I used the rasp to file down the edges where the paper was perforated, and used the fine sander on top of the tool to rough up the entire surface of the paper.  Love the look of this!
Valentine Card Tutorial-4I used the brush on the tip of the tool (hidden in the cap) to do detail distressing of the heart.  I then inked everything with Antique Linen Distress Ink.
Valentine Card Tutorial-2For those of you who are bow-challenged (there's no shame in that!!) you're going to love this!   I cut 2 pieces of ribbon (Maya Road Signature Ribbon Pack Red), tied them in a knot, and adhered it to the card with 1/8" Scor-tape.  Trim your edges, and instant faux bow!
Valentine Card Tutorial-6I added some Maya Road Heart Trinket Pins for embellishment, and done!
