Technique Tuesday - Crinkling and Sanding

I'm back! I had a nice little vacation at my parents. The weather was gorgeous. They live in the country surrounded by trees, so it is very pretty and serene. It is always nice to go home! Then it is always nice to get back to our routine and my blogging.

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
  1. Take a piece of cardstock and crinkle into a ball.
  2. Flatten out and crinkle again.
  3. Flatten once more and take a fine grit sandpaper and sand the wrinkles until the white core shows through.
  4. This technique only works with white core cardstock.
The great thing about CTMH cardstock and textured cardstock is that is is ALL white core.

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.

Happy Stamping!
