This makes a fun background look on your regular white cardstock. You can use any colors that you want to try together to come up with some fun looks. Different shades of greens can give you a nice garden look while yellows, oranges & browns can make your paper look like suede. Thanks to my friend Gail Goodman for directing me to this cool technique.
1. Take a piece of waxed paper slightly larger than the cardstock you are working with. Crumble it up into a small ball; then smooth it back out.
4. Run a hot iron over the top of piece of cardstock for about 15-20 seconds to give the waxed paper time to melt. Throw away the waxed paper. You now have to cards to do this technique with.
5. Place one of the pieces of cardstock on top of a piece of scrap paper to protect your work surface.
