2-22-2019: TONIC STUDIOS SATIN FROSTED SILVER CARDSTOCK (250 GSM).
Was about to return a handful of Crafter's Companion 3D christmas embossing folders to HSN. Embossed images weren't that impressive on Neenah Classic Crest Solar White # 80 lb cardstock despite 2 or 3 passes. I decided to try this mirror paper. And wow -- the images are really popping out using this Tonic studios satin frosted silver cardstock -- and I ran it through Vagabond 2 machine only once. No obvious paper cuts but if you put the embossed card against the light, then you see tiny cuts in the paper in the more detailed embossed sections. I think I just need to decrease the number of cardboard shims I use on the Vagabond 2 to minimize that and still get fullest embossing OR try spritzing water on the backside before embossing. Also used this for die cut sentiments -- and was beautiful. Will buy more colors and preferably in the satin finish which is more elegant without being too shiny.
