Sanded Embossed Cardstock-Tag Tuesday

Embossed cardstock is an extremely quick way to add texture and dimension to a craft project.  This tag is created from a premade die-cut embellishment included in a cardstock stack.

I used this particular brand of cardstock because it has a core (inner layer) that is a different color.  Ripping, sanding, or distressing will reveal the contrasting colored core.  I sanded the raised embossed area and filled the center opening with one of my Design Adhesive sentiments from Clearsnap and lime foil.  A punched hole and some fiber completed the tag.  The entire thing took less than 10 minutes to complete.  Perfect for a last minute gift!

I’m off to Chicago for the CHA (Craft & Hobby Association) summer trade show.  I’ll be walking the show on Tuesday, and teaching card classes for Clearsnap on Wednesday.  Stop and say hi!

Until next time…
