Step 1. Use Distress Inks and water to create the watercolor background on a piece of 110 lb. Smooth White Cardstock. For this card I used simple brush strokes with a little bit of ink. It’s that easy!

Step 2. Sand the edges of a Core Tag with the Sand It Gadget and adhere it to the watercolor background.

Mary Pat Siehl here and I love Back to School time and I love making nice little cards for my son’s teachers just to say “hi” and ” here’s to a great year!”  … Core’dinations and Petaloo are the perfect partners for these cards.
First up I have a CAS card using the Spotted Core and lightly sanded it to expose the ColorCore cardstock.  I then added a fun die cut using the 110 lb. Smooth Cardstock that was stamped.  I then added the wonderful flowers from Petaloo for my embellishments.
