Palm tree card with Chomas Creations engraving tip

I have a wedding to go to this weekend and the invites had a tropical feel to them, so I decided to go with a palm tree card!  I was just thinking how neat it would be to go with a distressed feel and etching these palm trees, so I gave it a go!
These palm trees are a download from the Silhouette Studio store, as well as the congratulations file.  I used the Chomas Creations engraving tip for the Cameo to etch the palm tree design onto Core'dinations kraft core cardstock.  Being the engraving tip was already in the Cameo, I also used it to score my card.  I recommend only doing the cut line once for scoring as too many times can make the card rip apart when you fold it.  I would also only do this on the heavyweight cardstock.
Look at how easy the scoring by the Chomas Creations engraving tip makes folding this card!

The back of the kraft core cardstock is kraft, so I cut the sentiment out of that and added it to the front of the card.  One thing is for sure, the Cameo can sure cut small details!  This is also nice as the inside of my card is kraft as well, so easier to see the writing on.
The Core'dinations looks even more distressed with a light sanding!

I still haven't managed to get a good etch with that engraving tip I ordered. No matter what pressure or brand of paper it just tears it up... Any further suggestions?
