Use simple sanding tools to give your cardstock an antique look.
- Cardstock (Core'dination Cardstock used here)
- Sanding Tool (Nail File, Sanding block or Sanding Paper)
Cut cardstock into the shape you need.
Crinkle cardstock in your hand. Unfold and repeat until the cardstock looks aged/crinkled enough.
If you have more then one cardstock piece you want antique, crinkle your other pieces.
Unfold cardstock pieces.
Step 4 (Optional)
If you are using cardstock with a different colored core, distress cardstock crinkles with a sanding tool to show texture.
Try sponging the crinkles instead.
Repeat with all of your cardstock pieces.
Finish your card.
