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.


  1. I love these! Very nice! TFS!

  2. These turned out lovely! I agree that not adding too much else let's the embossing be the star.

  3. Hi Lisa!

    I, too, have a Cuttlebug and just love it. I have a quick question, with the sandpaper effect, do you use a special type of sandpaper or a normal one that I could just use from my hubby's workshop? There are times when I want to just use the Cuttlebug, but then it looks like it just needs a little extra. Any advice would be greatly appreciated! Thanks and God bless, Patty

  4. I used fine grit 150 sandpaper from 3M for woodworkers. Basically what my husband had in the workshop.
