Another Center Step Card

Stamp Set: Sweet Essentials
Paper: Vanilla, More Mustard, Cajun Craze, Early Espresso, Espresso Coredinations
Ink: Espresso
Tools: Big Shot, woodgrain embossing folder, Autumn Accents Die, spiderweb embossing folder
Accessories: Brushed Bronze buttons, dimensionals, crochet ribbon, daubers, dust buddy and sanding system

I was probably one of the last people to try our Core D'nations paper.  Just not excited.  But just like every time before, I LOVE IT!!!  The texture that it gives is gorgeous and you get so much of it! 12 12x12 sheets for $6.  What a steal!  I bought the rest of the sanding system just because.  By itself, the paper is gorgeous when run through the big shot in an embossing folder.  The sanding only increases the WOW effect.  The dust buddy is nice b/c it is a pretty sticky cloth and the sanding surprisingly causes quite a bit of dust.   In addition to the cool paper, I put the leaves through the spider web embossing folder to give them the vein effect.  Then I used a dauber to just emphasize the veins.  Very cool!!  It's not just for spider webs anymore, folks :)

Very pretty....the wood grain EF is sooo wonderful looking and I totally forgot about using the Spider Web EF for the leaves...!!! I have another card to make and have a few extra leaves, so will definitely emboss them before sponging. TFS!
