Creative Cardstock Ideas

Hi Cricut-teers! Welcome to another Quick Tip Tuesday.
When working with our beloved Cricut, what do we use the most? Cardstock! So here are some great ideas on how to transform cardstock! I came across these fab ideas while on the Scrapbooks Etc. website. You can check the original post here! Enjoy and get creative! 
 Ripped Cardstock - Tear the edges for a scrappy look.
Sanded Cardstock- Sand white-core cardstock for a distressed and grungy look.
Heat-Embossed Cardstock - Heat-emboss stamped designs in your cardstock for a DIY background.
Folded Cardstock - Fold and crease with a bone folder for crisp lines and designs on your cardstock.
Wet Cardstock - Manipulate dampened strips into shapes and machine-stitch them into place.
Crimped Cardstock - Crimped Cardstock
Tone-on-Tone Cardstock - Tone-on-Tone Cardstock
Hole-Punched Cardstock - Punch tiny holes for a Swiss-cheese effect. Lay the cardstock on a piece of another color to let pops of that color show through.
Bleached Cardstock - Brush on bleach to remove color for an artistic look.
Dry-Embossed Cardstock - Dry-emboss with an embossing plate for simple accents.
Thank you for stopping by and don't forget to check out the Wednesday Winners tomorrow!
