I mean, what doesn’t scream Valentine’s Day like glitter cardstock?  Well, Core’dinations has some amazing lines for you! Our Gemstones, Glitter Silk and Core Couture are the BEST glitter cardstocks out there. And don’t forget about Tim Holtz Seasonal Impressions. There are sheets in there for all those major holidays.

Let’s check out some amazing projects from Suzanna Lee!


Love is in the air! Actually love is amidst glittery and shimmering X’s and O’x on this tri-fold card! What better way to get in the mood for Valentine’s Day than with glitter and hearts?

That day of sweet notes and sweet treats is around the corner and today I have a layout to share with you showcasing the Valentine’s paper of the Seasonal Impressions collection. I love selectively sanding the words that work with and support my layout. It’s almost like having a piece of patterned paper for a background.


Check out how cool the dots look along the letters:


And look at all that texture!

    BEAUTIFUL card and layout Suzanna!!!

    LOVE the shimmer & shine and flowing sentiments!!!

    I was wondering if you could please share a tutorial with us? I am still learning about die cutting (with a Big Shot) and would love to learn how you cut the sentiment panel on your fabulous tri-fold card.

    TracyM I am assuming (perhaps wrongly so) that by the sentiment panel you mean the center panel of the card. I truly didn’t do much which is the beauty of this card. It’s all a part of the die – it cuts not only the edges but there are score marks as well. The only thing in that panel that was not part of the die is the word “love” which I created from an Ali Edwards brush in PhotoShop for my Cameo. Now that was a bit more complicated but not at all difficult. Ali has a fantastic tutorial on her blog if you’re interested in that! Hope that helps!

    Thank You Suzanna!!!
    I thought that there might have been a special way to layer the folds when running it through with the die … looks like I need to get some more adventurous dies 🙂
