Some More Father’s Day inspiration…

Hi Everyone!  Ellen here today with a Father’s Day card I made…well two of them.  And they are very different!  I was inspired this week by two different things.

First up, I was working with some Couture Creations dies and after my cut I realized unfortunately that my sandwich was wrong. So it didn’t cut all the way through. That happens to me from time to time and I just put them in my recycle bin. WEll not this this time! I thought…I can do something with that…and I did! You have to check out their Doily dies..they are AWESOME! And versatile….

There was no way I could cut this with craft knife because it was too detailed so I grabbed my Sand it Gadget and I sanded and sanded and sanded a bit more and the “etched” image created starts to pop off the card.  It’s subtle but I think it works AND I saved some scraps 😉

And next up I was in my inbox and the daily RSS feed from Scrapbook & Cards Today was there and I found this treat: Folded Shirt Card for Father’s Day!

Aly Dosdal from the WRMK Design Team originally did the video so I had to try it out because I just KNEW that Core w0uld be awesome with this tutorial. I used Core Essentials for the shirt, Chocolate Box for the tie and background and a David Tutera Celebrate card for the base. I cannot get enough of these square cards!   For the original video check out the WRMK blog .

I gotta tell you…I did it on the FIRST try so it wasn’t that hard. You will need your Scor-Pal or scoring tool of some sort.

And  here is the inside of the card. You can open it up and put something in there.

We are here with Day THREE of our week with Simple Stories! How exciting!

Make sure you head over to the Simple Stories blog to check out the gorgeous projects their team created for this week. We have been working with the Harvest Lane and Handmade Holiday collections this week. You will LOVE them and you MUST check them out HERE!  First up we have some cards for you today.

Design Team Member Lydia Jackson created these cards for using the Harvest Lane collection and papers from the Core Darks collection…the PERFECT collection for those rich, fall colors.

Here are some details:

A card with a torn edge? SO COOL!

It’s amazing how some simple scoring along the edges can add that perfect detail…

Some great debossing…

Designer Debbie Standard created this card with some beautiful embossing and those cute little sentiments that make cardmaking as snap! Harvest Lane and Core look beautiful together!

And how about a layout from Designer Melissa Oliveira? Beautiful details using both Core’dinations Cardstock and Handmade Holiday.  The red cardstock is from Graphic 45 Signature Series and the embossed cardstock is BasicGrey Ornate Core Impressions.

Look at this gorgeous detail of the holy. Just hand cut the leaves, scor  and then sand and you are ready to go! Don’t  forget the Queen & Co. Bling …perfect for the berries.
