Caardvarks Hop - Day 2

Hey Everyone! Welcome to day 2 of the Caardvarks blog hop! The more I played with Core'dinations cardstock the more fun I had! There are so many fun techniques to explore.

Since the inside of the paper is a different color than the top when you tear it, sand it, crinkle it or emboss it you get a fun two toned look. On this card I embossed the cardstock with my Cuttlebug then sanded the top! Easy and fun!


Materials:
[Hi There Owl Card]
Stamps: Hero Arts Four Owls
Paper: Core'dinations Core Essentials
Ink: ColorBox Chalk, Memories Black Die
Other: Hero Arts Flower, Making Memories Brads, Hero Arts Black Gems, Machine Stitching, C'Bug Embossing Folder
