This week we are hosting another 4 for 40 prize - this time from DT member Andrea! Here is Andrea's idea she wants to share this week - take it away, Andrea!
"One of the things that I truly enjoy about paper crafting is what I like to call “Paper Manipulation”. You don’t even have to have fancy designer paper on hand, just some good old colorful (or plain!) card stock and a little imagination to make your cards dazzle! I like to use CTMH paper because of the white core. I can distress and dry emboss CTMH papers then sand the raised portions for a two tone look. I also like to cut shapes that are a little out of the ordinary. This takes some experimenting but well worth the results when you find a design that works. I always practice on lower grade paper until I find a design that is to my satisfaction, then I break out the good stuff. Anything is possible with a little imagination and a sharp pair of scissors or cutting tool. My challenge to you is to try something different. Work outside your comfort zone and see the endless possibilities that lay before you!"
