This sanding technique works bestwith embossing folders that leave "busy" or intricate designs. The sanding will leave scratches on the Shimmer Sheets. On this card I loved the scratches because I was going for a manly rustic result. The card is going to a male. To make the side border, I cut a thin strip of Shimmer Sheetz and glued it over a black ribbon. I then added some small black hearts, a bow, ribbon, and K& Company embellishment. The little Love tag is a set from Stampin Up and so is the matching jewelry punch. Fun, fun, fun. Shimmer Sheets is one of my new favorite toys.
Hope you enjoy this little design and have a wonderful weekend. We are expecting a few snow flurries overnight tomorrow and living at the beach, we get excited at even hearing the word snow! Tonight I am going to a Pajama Crop at my LSS. Try to picture this, a bunch of crazy women sitting around in pajamas cutting an pasting. Yep, call the men with the white straight jacket. I have officially lost my mind.
Challenges I plan to enter this card in:
