This is a card created using an A4 embossing folder from Craftwell (for the eBosser). Having embossed the A4 card I brushed with dusty concord distress ink. For the inside of the card I used two pieces of paper from HOTP Jacie's vintage papers (I've long neglected these), stamping on the inner one using a couple of Dawn Bibby stamps by Personal Impressions, inking with dusty concord.

The paper clips are just to keep the gatefold closed, so you can see what it's like:

And part of the back is embossed and distressed:

This is for:
