I have an edge distresser that I like. I also like to 'very lightly' mist the paper and crunch it up. Then I flatten it out and use some light sand paper (that's made for scrapbooking) on some of the raised parts. CTMH's cardstock is great for this because it has the white core and it shows through. Is that what you meant? Or did I miss it completely? LOL

I know I love doing that with the crumpling to Lorah
Make sure you take a warm iron and run over your paper after it is dry and you have sanding some of the crinkles so that your embellishments adhere best to the card stock.

Thanks for the tip! Never thought about ironing the paper after it's dry!
