Handmade Cards with Core Smooth Tags

Hi there Core fans! Suzanna here to share with you a couple of cards I created using smooth Core Tags.

“I Love You” Tag Card

First up, an obvious tag card. This is clearly a tag and I have done nothing to disguise that fact! The sentiment is stamped on the tag and becomes the main focus of the card. The smooth tags are perfect for stamping and the 300gsm paper ensures that the tags don’t curl.

“Hello Sunshine” Tag Card

Tag?! Yup, there is a CoreTag there! It’s covert; under cover of Gelatos, nestled in the heart of the sun rays! The hole of the circle tag is hiding under the bottom of the ‘o’. Again, a smooth CoreTag, and it withheld the water from my waterbrush used to blend the Gelato. I don’t think you have known it was a Core Tag had I not told you, that’s how diverse these tags can be!

“Bee Well Soon” Double Embossed Card

Texture and mixed media are the “buzz” words now, and Core’dinations papers are the perfect paper for this trend. Not only is the paper  great for tearing, embossing, and distressing to add texture, but many of the papers have an aged look already, like the Tim Holtz Shattered Collection that I used to create this Bee Well Soon Card.

Flower Pot Card with Hidden Tag

We still have weeks more of winter, but I am already yearning for the warmer days of spring. I adore the bright and beautiful flowers of the season, and find that they lift my spirits like nothing else.  I find that I often start making cheerful projects to help me get over the winter blues.  This fun card is sure to brighten someone’s day as well.

Step 3.  Machine stitch the smaller pot onto the larger one, leaving the top open to form a pocket.

Step 4.  Decorate the flower pot with die cuts and ribbons.

005

Step 5.  Use the smaller die to draw a line to trim a large tag, so that it will fit into the pocket, while leaving enough visible at the top to add flowers.
