Grundgy Christmas

Hello Everyone

As a neat freak, I don't do messy - well apart from my craft room! I like quite clean projects so a grungy look is way out of my comfort zone - but I was playing with my crimper and came up with this card.

I gritted my teeth and tore my cardstock and dirtied it all up with lots of daubing in Always Artichoke and Crumb Cake ink.

I used a border of orange to add some zing - and I think I quite like it. I guess it could be a Christmas card to send to a man! DH likes it. LOL

I will be back soon with something much more girlie for Christmas!


  1. It's grungy, but so fun! I agree with you about the border...perfect amount of "zing" with the red. The crimper gives great texture, too. :)

  2. LOL this sounds like me, I really struggle with anything tearing related! This looks fab though!

  3. I'm good with tearing, finally. I need to work on USING my embellishments now. It's so hard for me to do that. LOL

    Love the card!

  4. Cool! I love it! I hate tearing paper too but the results here look great.

  5. Loved the natural look it has.... If not read how u made it, I would think it was a beautiful sketch well planned out & executed.... Kudos!!!!


  6. Love the bit of grunge look, it came out great! And thanks for reminding me of my crimper collecting dust, may just have to pull it out!


Thanks SO much for your message. I love to hear from you. X
