To make my cards, I started with a 3.75 x 5 inch pieces of white cardstock. I took a Hero Arts background stamp, and stamped it in Distress Ink. Using the Classic Fabric background stamp by Hero Arts, I used Versamark on the stamp, added my stamped paper over top, then clear embossed. Once the embossing was dry, I used various Distress Inks to cover the areas that weren't resisted by the embossing powder. Once I was happy with the distressing, I ironed off the EP onto some scratch paper ( I used computer paper.. cheaper than cardstock). I stamped (the image) by Hero Arts onto the cardstock (cut/punched out) the image, and added a sentiment. With the myriad of Distress Inks I used, I ended up with three very different cards, but I like them all.
