I didn't take the time to make a new card today with unpacking and laundry, so I pulled a card from my archives that you have seen already where I used this technique. This is a great technique, and takes a couple more steps than sanding. It gives projects texture and is easy to do. This 6 x 6 layout was created by Kim Everingham, CTMH Independent Consultant. Of course, I really like it because she created her own background with leaves and a sentiment. Here are her directions:
Crinkling and Sanding
- Take a piece of cardstock and crinkle into a ball.
- Flatten out and crinkle again.
- Flatten once more and take a fine grit sandpaper and sand the wrinkles until the white core shows through.
- This technique only works with white core cardstock.
Here is the card I made for Father's Day this year where I used this technique on the vineyard berry piece of cardstock.
Thanks for stopping by and being patient while I took a little break.
