Calling all Cardmakers … Core’dinations ColorCore Cardstock is looking for Card Designers!
Please Note…we edited with some answers to your questions so see bold.

We are looking for talented and dedicated cardmakers that can not only create cards but other projects that can show the creative use of pre-made card bases (like our Core Cards that are pre-cut and scor’d. Think about it like this: if we sent you a pack of our Core Cards what would you do with them? ), die cuts, and embellishments. We are looking for cards that use all kinds of die cuts…tags, labels, scalloped pieces, hearts, stars etc. Any design, whether you cut it with your own machine or if it is pre-made is fine (so don’t worry if you do not have a die cutting machine you will not need one if chose as part of the team).
Step One: Design and then post three projects in one posting on your personal blog on or before Friday August 10th at 12:00pm EST titled “Core Cards Creative Frenzy” Keep in mind we are looking for paper crafters that specialize in cardmaking and that can showcase pre-made card bases and die cuts with cards and other unique projects.  Feel free to include step out photos or step-by-step instructions of any techniques that you used that you feel need highlighting as we are looking for our designers to be able to create tutorials in PDF format on occasion.
Step Two: Send us an email with a link to this exact blog posting to Please ensure the link is to “Core Cards Creative Frenzy” posting and not just a link to your blog. It makes it much easier to find, especially if you post frequently on your blog. Please include in your email your name, mailing address, phone number, and email address. Also include a resume of your publications and current design team obligations (if applicable).
We are also looking for designers that are comfortable creating how-to videos and tutorials as well so please let is us know if this interests you (camera and compensation will be provided).
– If you have any questions about the application process and/or design team requirements, be sure to post them on the Core’dinations’ Facebook page  or on this post as they may be questions that several applicants would like answered or email Ellen at New projects or the use of Core’dinations Cardstock is not required but if you have some Core’dinations and would like to create something brand new we would love to see it!
Requirements will be comparable to other papercrafting companies  and  Core’dinations will compensate with ample  product as well as monetary compensation for special projects.  Ideally we are looking for designers that have blogs to help with promotional activities (only on occasion) but this is not a requirement so please feel free to send us a link to an online gallery, flickr account, etc.
And, yes of course! International Applicants are welcome!
Designers will be asked to design for a minimum of 6 months.

  1. Two Questions that I imagine most applicants would want to know:
    1-What are the expectations / requirements that you would like for your new card designers to commit to?

    2-Also, what types of perks or compensation will Core’dinations be providing to the chosen card designers?


  2. Ruza says:

    I don’t have any Core-dinations pre-made cards. Can I use other products and incorporate Core-dinations paper?

  3. andrea says:

    Along with Ruza’s question, mine would be…if the die cuts, and embellishments you speak of are a specific product you currently have like the tags, or if this would be a new product you will be marketing? Is there a product, die cuts or embellishments, you’d like us to use specifically in our submissions?

    Good morning. I was just wondering if you will be confirming receipt of DT applications that were submitted. ;o)
