Faux Seersucker

With a few quick runs through a paper crimper, both up and down and side to side you can create a faux seersucker textured paper.  I love this simple effect which gives my card a casual yet sophisticated look.  I first stamped all the heather flowers before I crimped the cardstock.  I gently smoothed out the crimping before I glued the panel to the card base.  Once glued to the card base I used my finger nails to distress the edges.
