We’re all torn up over Core’dinations!

 Aren’t you? But of course in a good way! Today we have some projects from Designer Vivian Keh. This first card is so cool! It takes paper tearing to an entirely new level. And Vivian mixes and matched all  kinds of Core…some Spotted, Core Essentials and Vintage.

Hello, friends!  Vivian Keh on the Core blog today with a happy card using cardstocks from a number of different Core’dinations collections.  I’ve been having so much fun simply tearing our lovely color core cardstock for fast texture in papercrafted projects!  I tore several strips of Core for the right side of my card and tucked a simple sleeve behind the torn pieces to house a cute die-cut tag which slides out. Just about all the elements were sanded because I am in love the distressed result and how beautifully sanding brings out Core edges and embossing.

And who is ready for a layout?

For my base, I sanded a sheet of this wonderful Coconut Cream Woodgrain cardstock that we carry – I love the organic patterns and the versatile creamy color. For the embellishment, I relied heavily on my beloved paper punches.  The photo was backed with a piece of Core that I dry embossed and then fashioned into an easy folder.  I added a cute tab that I had die cut and embellished with a heart-shaped button. Simple journaling in the bottom left corner, and more detailed journaling hidden inside the folder.
Thanks to my punches, this layout came together quickly, which was very exciting for this typically slowpoke scrapper.

  3. Love your projects! My favorite thing is your lift-up photo panel. I’ll have to stick that idea in my inspiration folder.
