The sentiment is a quote I found written by Whoopi Goldberg. I think it's perfect for the essence of the card.
First I roughed the edges of the patterned papers using a single blade of my scissors.
If you slightly dampen the paper first it shreds a little more easily, but be careful not to over tear.
Then my favorite go-to technique is to ink the edges and corners with chalk ink.
A crimper adds some nice dimension. I actually crimped the bottom section of the card.
I often use Spellbinders dies to cut and mat my images. After embossing, but before removing the image from the die, I use a fingertip sponge and Distress Ink to ink from the die inward to the edge of the mat. When the sponge was almost empty of ink, I sponged over the entire surface to get a more vintage look.
