Clean and Simple Layouts with Mary Pat Siehl

I love to make clean and simple layouts that really focus on the photo and cardstock.  For my layout I started with my Core Essentials Snowflake and misted it lightly with a light teal color.  I then used my Silhouette and cut some winter trees.  I then tore the edges to expose the wonderful Core.  I then took a green color and tore that and layered the colors making a border at the top and bottom.  Next I took the green and embossed it and lightly sanded it with a snowflake pattern to frame mat my photo. Finally I cut out a 3×4 card with the title and to carry the theme of trees I cut out a tree. I then added some snowflake wood veneers.  I just love the Clean and Simple look!

I love to make my own Christmas cards and Core’dinations is just perfect for them!  For my first card I used Core Impressions and lightly sanded.   Next I cut my Tim Holtz Distress collection and cut the word Believe and a circle using my Silhouette.  I then lightly sanded it.  Next I cut my snowflake out using my Silhouette and placed it in the center of my card.  Then typical to my style I added a touch of bling to the center.  To finish it off I added some yummy solid twine from May Arts.

My second card I wanted to bling it up using the Core Couture Glitter andGlitter Silk collections.  Did you know that these two cardstocks work perfectly in the Silhouette.  Yup, they do and I made this card using the Silhouette base.  The glitter collections ROCK for making a Christmas tree.  To add a touch more of bling I added some sequins.
