Triple Play Blog hop #5 – FOR YOU

Karen Burniston has done it again.  Her engineering genius never ceases to amaze me.  I wish my brain worked like hers but, alas it does not.  Therefore, I will enjoy her magnificent designs in my crafting.  The die we are showcasing today is  565740 I used DCWV paper and it is colored with a white core.  It has a wonderful texture and with a light sanding you can create a lovely distressed look.  If you look closely on the last picture you can see the awesome dimension the Paper Glaze creates when layered on top of cardstock.  To continue viewing the rest of the blog hop you can either click on the link to the right.  Go forward, backward or start in a random spot with the home page at the Sizzix blog.
