Distressing Friendship Card

This week's theme at Mo's Challenge Blog is Distressing, and I wasn't sure if they meant paper distressing or ink distressing, so I incorporated both. Like I needed an excuse to use her adorable images!

I was introduced to this "Joy Fold" technique by the ABC Christmas Challenge blog, and although I didn't make their deadline I did use the idea (& their super tutorial) for this card.

The smaller card is actually a modified version of my tent card template, but my original idea didn't go as planned so it ended up like this!

I ink-distressed the paper with Ballerina Pink dye ink and a handy-wipe, and also used an emery board to distress the edges of the paper. The rose bouquets were stamped in blue and colored with Copics.
