I'm comfortable with CAS cards. Most often I feel better about my CAS cards than any other type (e.g. Vintage, Distress, etc). But I have to admit there's something therapeutic about rubbing or filing the heck out of a piece of paper.
This card is for the current Lawnscaping challenge: Distressing
The grey Tim Holtz distress paper was filed with a nail file. I laid it flat on my working surface and filed the edges while holding the file pretty flat as well.
The plain white cardstock I used for the base was also distress using Aged Mahogany but I did go over with Antique Linen.
I cut the ribbon (I love this one from my local sewing shop) to fit the length of the card. I then picked at the edges until I unravelled a bit of it. I stuck double-sided tape along the edges on the back-side to catch it from unravelling further. The length was stuck down with double-sided tape as well.
The image and sentiment is from GinaK Designs "Garden Silhouettes" and I did shadow stamping again (my technique of choice this month it seems!). This image was layered on plain kraft.
See below for a close-up of the edges:
