Simply Sanded

This card was the result of a little experiment. I picked up this cutlee little embossing folder at The Stamp Pad last week and thought I'd have a play. I dug out a pad of Prima papers and thought, "I wonder what it would be like embossed and sanded?" and this was the result. I sanded the edges of the paper to finish it off before mounting on a 6x6 card base.

I had the (badly) stamped Nestie label in my bit box (can't bring myself to throw things like that away!). When I put it next to the sanded card I really liked liked the fact that it wasn't perfectly stamped, it added to the slightly shabby look of the card.

Then I went slightly bling crazy and popped some tiny gems into the middle of each of the little flowers. It's a pity the piccy doesn't do its sparkliness much justice.

Hmmmmm, what next?........

Off to play,
