These A1 Glitter assorted cardbases make the CUTEST cards! The A1 size (3.475″x4.875) is just a tad smaller than the standard A2 size so it’s perfect for gift bags or a card you need in a hurry.

Happy Easter Layouts

With Easter this week, we thought some layouts for you today would be a great way to get those creative juices flowing for all those photos!
First up Kate Nolan-Denham:
Believe it or not, I built this layout around the bunnies.  I couldn’t help but notice that the pastel colors in the Core Couture Glitter Collection looked like Easter Peeps.
I created the peep scene by cutting green, yellow, pink and blue bunnies out of Core Couture Glitter  with my Silhoutte.  I crimped their ears a bit to give them dimension.
The green grass was cut out of a 12″ strip of the green in the Light Graphic 45 Collection, matching the background green cardstock.  I just randomly snipped the top 1″(or so) of the strip and sanded afterwards.  Sanding after I snipped made the individual blades of “grass” stand out more.  Don’t forget to use your Dust Buddy after sanding to give it that finished look!
Other Supplies:

And Debbie Standard has not one but TWO layouts for us today using all kinds of Core’dinations Cardstock.
This first one is has a Tim Holtz Seasonal Impressions base and tons of flowers cut from Spellbinders dies and a Pastels Core Essentials pack.  Just cut and sand!

Chocolate, right?  Well we have the next bext thing today… Chocolate Box cardstock!

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Mary Pat here with a fun layout all about corrugating! For a video on how to do this technique with your paper crimper click HERE to view our Technique videos.

Playing with the Chocolate Box collection is really fun!  Just take the Chocolate Box and run it through a paper crimper.  When you lightly sand the paper the blue core comes through  and it is just amazing!

Next, tear the bottom in order to really expose more of the colored core.  Continue to add layers like the Spotted Core Cardstock  and sand.  Add a photo, some sewing and fun embellishments  and you have a great layout.

And we have Ava Gavloski  here with a  cute little shaped card for Easter.

Sometimes it’s a refreshing change to make a shaped card.  Here I used the Core’dinations Core Essential’s Pastel Collection. Just Emboss and sand the card to show the inner core.

I embellished my card with a die cut from Spellbinders, May Arts Ribbon and ScrapFX chipboard to give the card some layers and texture.  The Core’dinations Pastel collection colors core’dinate so well with each other!

Accordian Easter card by Suzanna Lee

Designer Suzanna Lee here today with an Easter project for you.

MarchEsterPrjct_SuzannaLee

Using an accordian card die from Elizabeth Craft Designs, I created this fun Easter home decor. Each of the backgrounds is not only a different color but a different cardstock as well. I used some Core Essentials cardstock  and some Core Impressions in various designs. See my supply list for more details.

The oval of each panel is cut using white cardstock and individually decorated using more die cut cardstock and some stamps.

Emboss bits and pieces of the panel for added texture like I did here with the tulip. Then shade it with Gelatos for a hint of ombre color and shading. Scor the outer edge of this panel and sand to frame the letters.

 Embellish each oval shape and make a quick nest out of some twine like I did below:
