This card was made using my Big Shot and an embossing folder on Designer Series Paper. When you run the DSP through the embossing folder it breaks the fiber and will leave the white showing. I used a sanding block and carefully rubbed on the raised edges to bring out more of the white. It makes for a very quick and elegant background.
This embossing folder is retired but there are lots of new ones that would look pretty, too. The stamped expression comes from the retired Watercolor Wishes stamp set.
