Scraptures Wild Card Wednesday - October 23, 2013

It's Wednesday, over on Scraptures that means it's time for another Wild Card Wednesday challenge. This month I have been making cards to send to Canadian troops overseas using the "Operation Write Home" stamp set that came in this month's card kit. I think this one is my favourite so far.

I inked up the stencil with early espresso ink and then rubbed it directly onto the kraft cardstock.
I wanted the card to have a distressed / well travelled look, so I shredded all the edges with scissors and crinkled up the leaves.

Early Espresso cardstock (SU)
Kraft cardstock (Recollections)
