Creating Layouts with School Colors

There are a lot of High School graduations going on right now and  Kate Nolan Denham has a great layout to share with us today using school colors. With such a variety of different colors and kinds of cardstock to choose from, Core’dinations Cardstock can be your go to paper for any occasion!
On this layout, Kate does a great job working around that issue we always find when using Core and embossing folders….”how do I only use a 5×7″ folder on a 12″ layout?” She balances it perfectly with a 5×7″ photo and then, of course, sands!

Kate here today with a graduation layout that sports school colors from Core’dinations Vintage Collection.  It is one of my favorite collections!
I did a lot of sanding with my Sand It Gadget.  I wanted the color core to really pop on the edges of the mats  where I embossed and scored.  It allowed me to add dimension without having to add more layers.
You can see how awesome the Core’dinations Color Core looks in this up close photo!
