NEW! Kromekote Cardstock from WorldWin!

Today is my day on the WorldWin BlogWorldWin Papers has come out with a new line of cardstock, called Kromekote. This cardstock collection contains foil, glossy, and glossy textured cardstock papers. The cardstock is a heavy weight, perfect for embossing and die cutting.

I know, it may be early for Christmas, but....I need to get a head start on my cards, plus...look at this shimmery foil cardstock! It is perfect for the holidays!

I used the Kromekote Silver Foil cardstock for my card. I embossed the silver foil with an embossing folder, and then I gently rubbed the surface with a sanding block.

I used Copic markers to highlight just a few elements of the embossed image. I die cut a small scrap of the silver foil cardstock with a mini tag die template, and then I stamped the sentiment on it with Staz-On ink (which dries quickly on the glossy surface).

You can see here the "scratching" of the surface that happened when I gently buffed the raised images with a sanding block! It gives the card even more dimension.

I created the card and mat with ColorMates cardstock (deep emerald isle and deep berry red).

Thanks for looking!
