After a quick explanation on the effects you can get by distressing the surface, I left the store with a few sheets to play with.
So, what makes this card stock so different?
Well, you can do all the usual things you do with regular card stock, but if you sand or tear it, you'll reveal the core colour. What I really like about it though is that it takes the guess work out of colour coordination because the core colour is a lighter shade of the main colour.
I didn't have much time for playing when I got home but I couldn't wait until I did, so I just ripped right into it - neat effect. These are a couple of sheets from the Black Magic Collection.
And look at the lovely linen texture.....
I'll play with this some more tomorrow and post a finished card or two.
