Happy Halloween -- the ALMOST tutorial

What is it they say....the road to hell is paved with good intentions?? Well, I had every intention on finishing this Halloween card and posting it today -- with a tutorial on how I made my own Core'dinations Sandable card stock.

You can see a sneakie peakie in the photo below.
I love that Damask Embossing Folder! Since I don't have photos -- or even a completed card -- I'll just tell you how I created it, while that was not my good intention -- I wanted to give you a COMPLETE tutorial on how I made my card today -- hopefully this saves me from H E Double Matchsticks today, and on Halloween even ;-)

You'll have to choose two things -- heavy-duty cardstock and acrylic paint. For this I used Cream Cardstock from Papertrey Ink and Black paint from Claudine Hellmuth Studios. I painted the entire piece of cardstock with a pretty heavy duty coat of paint -- and then let it dry OVERNIGHT. I wanted the paint to be completely dry before I attempted to sand it!

When it was dry I ran it through my Vagabond in the Damask Embossing Folder. 
When the embossing was done, I sanded it with a sanding block to reveal the cream cardstock underneath. Easy Peasy Lemon Squeezy. Doesn't it look great?? It's perfect for when you can't get to the store to get some Coredinations -- or you can't find the colors you need for your project.
Here's the other part of that card that I got started but never finished, I love this stamp. Speaking of that road -- I bought this stamp in August thinking I would do this tutorial for you --- ha ha.

Well, I do hope you have a HAPPY and SAFE Halloween. Don't eat tooooo much candy -- I'll try not to as well! Thanks for stopping by!
