Tip: Practice making this card using 8.5 x 11″ regular copy paper before you start with your favorite Core’dinations Cardstock to figure out all the folds.
Step # 1 Score lines on your suit cardstock base, sand and dust using your Core’dinations Dust Buddy
. Tent fold the card and then freehand the rounded edges for the shoulder.
Step # 2 Spray your custom size card base Core’dinations Cardstock with a mixture of water and glycerin (16 to 1 parts) roll cardstock suit lapels while cardstock is still damp.
Step # 3 Create your pocket embellishment, adhere to card, add brads and shirt to finish off your card.
At first glance this card appears to have a strip of twine across the front of the card. After a closer look, you can see that Core’dinations Cardstock has been scored, which reveals the inner colored core that creates this “faux twine look”.

1. Cut 5×5 inch squares from Core Essentials cardstock. Round the corners with a We R Memory Keepers ¼’’ Corner Chomper.
2. Cut the letters from the Alphalicious Cricut cartridge at 3 ¾’’ plus the shadow. Cut the palm trees from the Create A Critter Cricut cartridge, also at 3 ¾.” I used the flip button for one of them, so they are faced different directions.
3. Tear pieces of Core Essentials cardstock for the sandy beach and the water and attach to the squares. Core Tip: Tear different colors of our blue Core Essentials cardstock to create waves. With five different color families that gives you 20 different blues to choose from.
4. Emboss the letters and the palm trees with the Cuttlebug Swiss Dots embossing folder and sand with the Sand It Gadget.
5. Attach the letters and palm trees to the squares with foam squares.
6. Tie each of the squares together with ribbon.
7. Stamp the dots onto each “sand piece” with Rich Cocoa Memento Ink. This helps define the sand a little more.

Suzanna Lee here and I wanted to share with you this pocket page layout created entirely from Core’dinations cardstock. Not a lock of patterned paper in there. Well, there is a smidge of vellum! Guess how many different types of Core there are there? My point being, you don’t have to go out and buy those fancy cards when you can create your own cards from cardstock! Different types and the textures you can create with die cuts, embossing and stamping provide you with all the spice and variety you need!
Embossing and sanding with letter stickers. Overlay color on color for some variation.
Layer Whitewash on Core Essentials that has been embossed and sanded. Layer Gemstones on vellum and stamp.
The man and women were created with the likeness of the bride and groom in mind. I used Maya Road acetate shaped and rubbed with my Sand It Gadget on the paper leaving the outline of the people. I pushed down on the edges in order to create the slightly embossed look.
Did you guess correctly? Seven, 7 types of Core’dinations cardstock in that pocket page!
Jennifer Edwardson here with you to share some quick and easy cards you can make in under 10 minutes! Sometimes you just need a quick card …. you know when you have the gift but forgot the card or you just want to get one in the mail fast? These are a few ideas that are super easy, super cute and ready for any sentiment you might need.
I added a Step 2 layer that coordinated and gently sanded the top off the show the lighter color inner core. I embossed a couple of butterfly die cuts and sanded them to show the purple core but only adhered them to the card in the center so they look like they’re ‘flying’ ….. a few adhesive backed pearls and a sentment and this was done in under 10 minutes !!!
5 MINUTE CARD ALERT !! This one was even faster. Again I went with a polka dot base but chose kraft instead. I adhered (3) of the pre-embossed envelope seals and raised them using 3D foam and added a ‘miss you’ sentiment sticker to the middle – DONE !! Cute and quick – love that !!
