Crinkled Seam Binding

I really like the look of crinkled seam binding. It is easy to do and adds a nice texture to your vintage and shabby chic projects.

The card I am sharing today uses Rose Petal Seam Binding. There are many beautiful colors in the RRR Store HERE.
To crinkle up my seam binding, I spritz it with water and then ball it up in my hand and place the ball into the corner of a plastic bag. Twist the plastic bag tightly around the ball. Leave the seam binding ball in the bag overnight. The next morning, remove the seam binding from the bag and fluff the ball out. Let it dry thoroughly. Pretty easy!

My sentiment is from Flourishes' In And Out You stamp set. I used Distress ink on all my cardstock and designer paper edges. I added some Chino pearls for embellishments. My silk flowers and layers are all held together with Scor-Tape. I love that stuff -- if you haven't tried it yet, you need to! Thanks for taking a peek!
