Hi friends! Vivian Keh here to share a card project that uses Core’dinations Chocolate Box Collection.The cardstock comes in a range of yummy chocolate hues, and the core comes in a pretty rainbow of colors to choose from.



Step 1: Dry emboss a pretty design onto a piece of Chocolate Box Cardstock and sand to reveal the core color.


Step 2: For a soft framing element, add a bit of intentionally carefree stitching along the edge.

Step 3: Die-cut a label out of another piece of Chocolate Box cardstock. Dry emboss and sand to reveal the core color. Layer coordinating embellishments that vary textures and keep the feeling soft.
