There are three different ways that I currently use to "age" this amazing card stock. Yesterday, I shared one of them with you -- crumpling. Yep. Crumpling.
Something so easy, so basic, can really create a one-of-a-kind look that will have your projects noticed.
Today, it's sanding. Simply sanding the Core'dinations card stock. That's it.
I used the Stampin' Sanding Block in a straight "up and down" motion to simulate woodgrain, worn material, or weathered leather -- however it is you think of it. You can try this technique on both the smooth and textured sides for different looks. I used the textured side on this card.
Can you see all that detail? And it feels cool, too. People just love to run their fingers over this card stock. We all love texture, and this stuff adds it in spades.
What was used:
Card Stock - Core'dinations card stock in Early Espresso, Very Vanilla, Not Quite Navy and Riding Hood Red polka dot paper from the Designer Series Paper Pack in Regals; Ink - Early Espresso; Apothecary Framelits; Big Shot; Stamp Set - You're Amazing; Stampin' Sanding System; Crumb Cake 3/8" Taffeta Ribbon; Basic Pearls Jewels; 1/2 pearls; SNAIL adhesive, and Stampin' Dimensionals.
