Core'dations Cardstock

If your a Bazzill lover then your going to just love everything about Core'dations cardstock. It is nice heavy cardstock that is also textured but it has a lighter core. Not exactly white but a lighter color of the actual cardstock color. Which will help with added effects or to make your own background. Here are a few cards showing the sanding technique.

As you can see in the first card I used a piece of the Inque boutique chipboard behind my cardstock and sanded it to get my palm tree in the center of the card.

In the second card I took the paper fish die cut and put it behind my cardstock and sanded it so it would give my die cut some more depth on the front of the card.

Elisa I love the look you created on the first card with the chipboard behind was a lightbulb moment for me -why didn't I think of that!

The second one is very interesting. I can't visualize what you did but it created an interesting look. Love the way you design out side the box!
