Crimper Techniques: Crimped Details

Use a crimper to add texture and interest to paper crafts.

Directional Crimped Mat
After stamping on a square of card stock, mark the middle of each side with a pencil. Score from each mark to make 4 triangle corners. Fold the triangles to the centre and feed the mat through a crimper, starting at the bottom corner point. Open out the corners and adhere to card.

I also crimped a section of the card front and adhered a crimped strip under the mat.

Crimped Strip Embellishment
Crimped metallic card stock makes an interesting embellishment on this card.

The lights on the robot chest are small Square Rhinestone brads removed from the casings and glued to the image.
