Here are the details from my first card featured during last weekend’s Stampin’ Addicts Holiday Catalog Blog Hop. (Did you miss the hop? Click the link to get back in the loop!)
If you haven’t used the Core’dinations Card Stock yet — prepare yourself for an instant WOW! You use a very, very light touch when sanding to produce the two-tone effect. I suppose I’ll tear it at some point, but the emboss-and-sand result is amazing.
I mentioned during the blog hop that the cloth piece was torn from an old dish towel. I like “flour sack” towels that are all cotton. And I bleach them lightly before washing them each time, so eventually they get very, very soft and begin to pretty much fall apart. That’s when they become studio items rather than kitchen items! I tear a towel to the rough size I need, then pull the threads to create the fringe. If I’ve measured well, there’s no trimming necessary. You can see another use for a dish towel on this card.
