Sueded Cardstock

At our last downline meeting Heidi shared how to take Stampin' Up! cardstock and using a bone folder work the cardstock over it and over it to break up the fibers.  Eventually the cardstock will start separating and you can pull it apart into two layers - each one more soft - and feels like suede fabric. Since it is now soft and pliable you can use it pretty much as you would fabric.  Here she used a piece for the topper on this cute little jar full of clothes pins - adorable.
