Today I have two cards using our Core Basics line. The Vellum and 110 lb Smooth White cardstock are great for stamping. And even though the Kraft and Black cardstocks are not sandable, they still look great embossed, scored and punched!

It’s fall! I can’t help but decorate my little heart out when it comes to fall. I love fall colors but I always seem to add a little twist to it. A heathery aqua mixed in with all the other fall colors just speaks perfection to me, so when I started designing this wreath, it ended up with a mix of non-traditional aqua and tried-and-true yellow. And the juxtaposition doesn’t end there. A mix of somewhat predictable leaves combined with stylish medallions makes this wreath modern and straighforward–my favorite look. No matter what colors you choose for your wreath, you’ll love how easy it is to create.
Fall Medallion Wreath Supplies
- Darice 8″ Wreath
- Tim Holtz Kraft-Core Nostalgic Collection Card Stock
- Darice Burlap Ribbon
- Autumn Leaves
- Straight Pins
Step 1: Wrap burlap ribbon around wreath form, securing the beginning and ends with straight pins.
Step 2: To make medallions, cut strips of card stock 1.5″ x 12″ and score every 1/2″.
Step 3: Fold the card stock accordion style, and sand the edges of the folded card stock.
Step 4: Adhere ends of each card stock strip together to form a ring, and let dry. With the ring on a flat surface, press the top edges inward to create a medallion, and glue the medallion to a scrap of card stock to secure.
Step 5: Secure leaves and medallions to the wreath using straight pins.
Step 6: Secure a piece of ribbon to the back of the wreath using straight pins as a hanger.
And just like that you have a striking wreath. Hang it up and enjoy your creation.
We want to wish you all an amazing Independence Day! We are celebrating our freedom on the Core blog today with a layout featuring Tim Holtz Seasonal Impressions.

Core Basics - 110lb White
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!
Supplies: Tim Holtz Kraft-Core Nostalgic, Tim Holtz Kraft-Core Shattered, Glitter Silk, David Tutera Celebrate Cardmaking system sentiment, liquid pearls, sequins, mini-clothes pins, twine, scoring tool and star punch
Hi there! Suzanna here with a seasonal Tim Holtz Kraft Core Seasonal Impressions layout to share with you using one of the individual embossed papers focusing on the American No. 17 sheet. It’s perfect for the 4th of July.
Embossing Folder – Tim Holtz
Cut File – 3d Banner, Design ID #53911
Silhouette Cameo: Font - Independence
Twine – The Twinery
Wood Veneer – Freckled Fawn, Studio Calico
Dies – Lifestyle Craft, Die-Versions
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!
