Kanban Kandi Core card - bows and rosettes

Rosettes made from Kanban Kandi Core card, using Sue Wilson dies
I've been playing with Kanban Kandi Core card this week. It looks most unprepossessing and nondescript on screen, but is a really beautiful and versatile card to craft with. 

Kandi Core is double sided, with the reverse side a more muted version of the design on the front. Each sheet has a coloured core (pictured on the sheet header), so it is particularly suitable for ripping & tearing and distressing, also for use with embossing folders and sanding back.

The weight is slightly lighter than most other Kanban card stock at 240gsm. This means that it isn't really suitable for base card stock, but it is great for matting and layering and the lighter weight also makes it easier to work with. 

As you can see from the pictures, it is also fantastic for 3D crafts. I had great fun making bows with a Sue Wilson bow die and rosettes with Tim Holtz rosettes dies. I got three rosettes and two complete bows out of each A4 sheet that I used. 

I will blog some of the finished projects made with the Kandi Core embellishments later in the week.
