We are here with Day THREE of our week with Simple Stories! How exciting!

Make sure you head over to the Simple Stories blog to check out the gorgeous projects their team created for this week. We have been working with the Harvest Lane and Handmade Holiday collections this week. You will LOVE them and you MUST check them out HERE!  First up we have some cards for you today.

Design Team Member Lydia Jackson created these cards for using the Harvest Lane collection and papers from the Core Darks collection…the PERFECT collection for those rich, fall colors.

Here are some details:

A card with a torn edge? SO COOL!

It’s amazing how some simple scoring along the edges can add that perfect detail…

Some great debossing…

Designer Debbie Standard created this card with some beautiful embossing and those cute little sentiments that make cardmaking as snap! Harvest Lane and Core look beautiful together!

And how about a layout from Designer Melissa Oliveira? Beautiful details using both Core’dinations Cardstock and Handmade Holiday.  The red cardstock is from Graphic 45 Signature Series and the embossed cardstock is BasicGrey Ornate Core Impressions.

Look at this gorgeous detail of the holy. Just hand cut the leaves, scor  and then sand and you are ready to go! Don’t  forget the Queen & Co. Bling …perfect for the berries.

    Love “go nuts”. When you tear the paper it looks like you went to a lot of work to color the ends. If the recipient only knew how easy it was.

    Cute cards and cute layout. No surprise since both products go so well together. I like the touches on the cards like torn edge, debossing and the scoring. The layout also has some great details. I like the embossing, twine and torn edge.
