Motorcycle Madness!

Ha, no madness here really, just seemed like a zippy title!! :)

This card is another we did at our workshop last week. Just {heart} this gorgeous Lattice embossing folder.  We did a cool, quick technique my upline recently taught us at our last meeting.  Using Designer paper, run a piece (any size you like) through your Big Shot with any embossing folder of your choice.

Very carefully sand away the raised portion of the dsp and you will get a completely different look on your designer paper!!  The reason you must use Designer paper is that it has a white core; part of what I love about SU! solid cardstock is that its dyed completely through, so even when you cut a piece there are no "white" edges showing. However, designer paper is created by printing onto white cardstock, and so when you sand away, you sand to the colour beneath the dsp, which is white.

Also, on this particular card I clear embossed the whole image, giving it a glassy look.

Stamp Set: Motorcyle,  newest Mini,Happy Birthday from retired SAB
