Sand It, Tear It, Emboss It!

Have you heard about Core'dinations paper yet? Fabulous stuff! It has a colored core so when you tear it or emboss and sand it, like I did on my card, you see a different, coordinating color. And the papers are double sided so if I flipped my black piece over to the pink side and sanded, I would get black sanded edges. You know you're ready to use a product when you're day dreaming about a card design! That was me all day yesterday, thinking about a design and how to incorporate the Core'dinations, which I purchased at Wholly Scrap, paper into a card. I opted to go with a small circle vs. an entire card back. The circle was embossed with an embossing folder and Cuttlebug. Then I just sanded the top of the embossed areas. The black came off very easily to reveal the pink below. Cool, right? The background decoration of the card is just different colors of cardstock and patterned paper, wrapped with a big 'ol ribbon and bow. The butterfly is from Papertryink, as is the sentiment (they're part of the same set, Butterfly Kisses). I added some glossy accents to a few of the dots on the butterfly and stickles to the swirl. And how about that black sparkly circle paper? It was a random scrap I found...love that paper!Next I think I'll try tearing the paper to see what I can come up with! If you can find this paper at your local or online scrapbook store, pick some up, it's very fun!! Enjoy!
