A Different Embossed Background

 Yesterday I made my weekly video on FB (and now on YouTube) of something I taught back in 2010.  I had to dig to find the paper that would work and yes, I've had this paper since then! But it is so cool a technique!

I had to find my white core paper! If you have Die Cuts With a View paper that's it! Or if you have Core'dinations, that generally works, too! But sometimes the cheap stuff like at Wally World is white core. Anyway.  If you emboss the paper then sand it, you get beautiful results! The red paper on my card is a rather cheap as it's very thin.

Here you can see the sanded raised hearts. You do have to be careful not to sand too hard as you can tear the paper.  I die cut the word from black card stock and black foam then adhered the two together using a good craft glue.  I wanted my word to pop and there is just no way to do that using foam pieces. 

I have 3 more backgrounds to make into cards plus the one I shared at the end of my video which will post Friday.  

You know, this would make a good anniversary card, too!
