Distressed Old Olive card

I don't normally do distressed cards, but when I made this it just needed something...... wished I'd left it alone now!

The base card is Basic Black and I cut off about 5 cm from the front edge to expose the inner card. I cut a piece of Old Olive and distressed it with black ink and then tied a knot of Black striped grosgrain ribbon around it. This was stuck to the front of the card with the lovely ornate label and sentiment from the Vintage Label set - I will be very sorry to see this stamp set go at the end of February!

For the inside of the card I cut a piece of Very Vanilla cardstock and stamped Basic Black spots all over it using the eraser at the end of a pencil as a stamp!! I then distressed it using black ink.

This card might grow on me.....
