I used Darice’s embossing folder “mask” to create this special cut out instead of using one of your sandwich plates, you can select areas that you don’t emboss.
To the left is the sandwich (minus the paper) and to your right is the resulting effect. I chose to “fill” the hole with another piece of embossed BlackMagic that I cut using the embossing mask to trace the oval. The result is less raised as you put embossed cardstock on flat cardstock (as opposed to two layers of embossed paper).
There is a lot of depth to this card with the fireworks really coming at you! I only adhered the center of the die cut firework sprays thus enabling me to use my finger nail to curl out the “arms”. A little Stickles adds to festivities!

1. Start by cutting hexagons with your hexagon die cut and your embossing machine.
2. Take your hexagons and using about three different embossing folders emboss your hexagons. Then you will sand them with your Sand It Gadget and dust them off with your Dust Buddy.
3. Run all your hexagons through your Xyron machine and place on your white card base.
4. Tie ribbon below your hexagons and add a tag with your sentiment.
Sometimes I find that it can be tought to come up with new ideas for boy layouts. I want to share with you a quick and easy tip on how to create your own grid-like pattern with Core’dinations. When I looked at my son’s shorts in these photos, for some reason it reminded me of Lego ….. So I took my Core’dinations and got to work !!
I cut (4) different colors into 2″ pieces and ran them through this cool mini square embossing folder from Darice
I gently sanded each piece and then adhered them in a pattern onto the top and bottom of my white spotted cardstock base making sure that each color didn’t end up on top of one another.

I selectively sanded the word that corresponded with my theme. I also happen to have the Tim Holtz embossing folder that matches this pre-embossed cardstock and was able to fussy cut the 4 in a slightly bigger size. It worked out perfectly!
This entire layout was created using all Kraft Core products! I love the vintage feel it gives to the layout.
Another fun technique that is unique to Core’dinations cardstock is the ability to run it through your label maker for some fun banners. By sanding the raised print, like I did on the little red flag to reveal the colored core underneath, you can really see the letters!
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!
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!
