Using white core paper and the Cuttlebug embossing folders

I just recently purchased a Cuttlebug and I am loving it. This weekend was the first time I tried a sanding technique I have seen all over the web. I embossed the Colorbok cardstock paper I got at Walmart with two of my favorite Cuttlebug embossing folders. I then sanded the paper with fine sanding paper to make the white core show through. It almost looks like leather. I made the cards real simple because I thought the sanding effect was enough.
