True Friend...

My friend Susan found some wonderful "Black Magic" paper on a recent trip. She was so sweet to pick some up for me. I love the effects you can achieve using this paper with Cuttlebug folders. The paper is black on one side, colored on the other side. When you sand it, tear it, or emboss it, it brings the colored side through to the black side. Does that make sense? As soon as I removed the cardstock from the embossing folder, I could see the pink popping through the black. To increase the effect, I took my sanding block and sanded the surface to remove some more of the black. It's very unusual, I think, and the effect is pretty cool!
