The joys of Christmas

I made the background paper by stamping swirls and then coming back to stamp the leaves in burgundy. The 'ribbon' is actually paper that has been distressed and then crimped and crinkled. To distress the paper:

Step 1: Run paper through crimper lots of times (maybe 5 or 6) until paper is starting to separate.

Step 2: Pull paper apart carefully so that center core is exposed.

Step 3: lay a strip of glue down on card and start gathering the distressed paper strip as you put it down on the glue strip.
