Chalk Core Cards

Chalk Core really does take the look of a chalkboard. A fun way to mass produce simple cards, that look like they took a lot of time to create.
I wanted to show you today, the difference between the look of embossing (raised image) on Chalk Core, and de-bossing (embedded image.)The card on the left is debossed- the Chalk Core cardstock was inserted upside down. This embeds the image into the cardstock, so when it is sanded, the dark color remains in the embedded areas. The card on the right is embossed. The Chalk Core cardstock was inserted right side up, so when it is sanded, the color on the raised area is removed, revealing the core of the cardstock.

Two great looks, one embossing folder, and one specialty cardstock!

Chalk Core cardstock has a smooth surface, and it wonderful for wet embossing too. I added the sentiment by stamping it with white ink, and then adding white embossing powder and heat setting it.
