Something Classy and Different

I Know! This card is definetly not my normal colors let alone a comfort layout. But my wheels started turning during our Open Night Last Night. My dear friend Yasmin asked me about our sanding blocks and what uses we have for them. There are traditional uses like sanding the edges of paper to distress or roughing the top of an embossed image to bring out the white core from the Designer Series Paper. But have you thought of sanding our cardstock to give it a different effect? Well that is what this card does! A very subtle but distinctive effect. Our cardstock is dyed throughout so that every layer is the same color, you just lightly sand the top of the dry embossed design to make the background stand out. TaDah!!

This card is 100% Stampin' Up! Literally...the idea too!!
