It’s beginning to look a lot like Christmas!
Well, yes it has been for a few weeks now but only FIVE days left until Christmas..can you believe it?
Today we have Designer Kim Moreno working some of her Core magic….ENJOY!
I just love the Tillie Dot paper and knew that it would make a cute and quick Christmas card so I went punch happy and put together this card in a snap! I punched 8 stars from the green cardstock and one from the yellow and sanded them each carefully with my Coredinations sanding block and arranged them on the Snowflake cardstock, that I tore along the bottom, in a tree shape. I then added jewels and a sticker to complete my card.
Something I look forward to at Christmas is my kids’ visiting and getting their photo taken with Santa. I love the growing collection I have, seeing how fast they are growing up and realizing that next year there will be an extra one in the photo! Eeek!
Recently I scrapped last year’s photo, and wanted to keep to a soft, pastel color scheme.
I used only cardstock from the Core’dinations Whitewash collection – I’ve been just a bit obsessed with it lately! But I love the soft colors it gives and how effective just a little bit of sanding is.
You can see in the close up photo below how the edge shows the core color so easily.
For the panel down the bottom of the layout, I used a star punch to layer shapes punched out of the same cardstock. But with that little sand around the edges they really POP!
Now to work on this year’s photo!
