I also wanted it to have a lot of texture, so I dry embossed the background and inked it with some distress ink. And I was watching Ashley on one of her Wednesday videos, she distressed the edges of one of her mats using her nails. I really wanted to try it instead of buying the distressing kit from Stampin' Up. I used the sharp edge of my scissors instead of my nails and ran it across the edges of my mat. It was great! Here's my card, I hope my cousin-in-law and his wife will appreciate it. Enjoy your weekend! And thanks for stopping by!
