Seasons Greeting~~ CB-Design Team Entry







Happy Mon.!!

Hi~ya All!

A happy day to everyone, hope you had a great weekend. How many participated in World Card Making Day? It was on Saturday, and if you are a papercrafter, you were encouraged to do some crafting. Well, I did a few cards, one for my new Cuttlebug Design Team, which I finished up on Sunday. I was thinking it was due next week, only to find out it was today. lol I really had to put a rush job on it. Thought you might want to have a look at it, as our theme this week is Sanding Surprise!
This is done by embossing your image in the CB, and then sanding the raised edges with a sanding bock or sandpaper. I use my sanding block by SU, I think it is a little finer than paper. Be sure to use white core card stock to get the effect, it doesn't work with solid color card stock. I used DCWV card stock for both the white core and colored cardstock. Used a mirror image foil board around the borders. It gives a nice effect to the embossed image, if I must say so myself.

This was our first challenge that the DT had to participate in, but I can see this is going to be lots of fun. Make sure you hop on over to the http://thecuttlebugspot.blogspot.com/ and check out everyones work. You will be amazed at everyones take with this technique! Enjoy, and leave your comment please........Catcha later!
