Today I have a card that focuses on the Darks Collection, specifically using the  Core Tags.  Antiqued a Darks Collection Tag, embellish it and then add the tag to a card base.  It’s that easy! My inspiration for this tag is the famous “Bird of Paradise” flower from the tropics.

“Hippo Birdie to You” Card Supplies:

Step 1. Use the Sand It Gadget to sand over a piece of Black Magic card stock. Use your Dust Buddy to dust off the residue because it will help you stamp the image and emboss it clearer.

Step 2. Stamp the images from the Lawn Fawn stamp set with VersaMark and heat set with white embossing powder.

Can you tell there’s a bookmark on this card? See that tab with the sentiment? That’s actually a Core Tag Bookmark! Just mount it on some colored cardstock so it pops and you have a quick and easy way to add interest to your project.

Hi there! Suzanna here to share with you a thank you card today. I don’t know about you but I am always looking for a card to say thanks! This design could easily be used for any sentiment.

Supplies:

This was a very simple card to create with some Core’dinations cardstock from my left overs, a David Tutera card base from Step 1, a die, an embossing folder and some twine!

Create a visually pleasing look with triangles, wrap it up with twine to really capture your interest and voila! You’re finished!

I used “thank you” as my sentiment but really, as generic as triangles are, anything could go here!

Tim Holtz Kraft Core Card

I’m trying to create more cards to keep on hand for the occasions that pop up! One of the cards that I’m always needing are the ones for the men in my life. I find that using Tim Holtz Kraft Core cardstock always gives a simple design a more masculine look.

Supplies:

 

I’ve used the same embossing folder for each panel but some are embossed and some are debossed!

My other top cardmaking tip is to use a general sentiment such as ‘for you’ so the card can be used for a variety of occasions such as birthdays, Father’s Day, thank you etc.
