For my card I used the Core Basics collection.  I think I am totally hooked on the yummy Kraft and I don’t think I can make a project without using the 100 lb. smooth cardstock.  I then added some stamped images and the finishing touch was the addition of the beautiful Petaloo flowers.

Here is a  close up of my flowers and pumpkins.

Thanks so much for joining me today.  Have a wonderful and crafty day!

Fall Fox Card with Core Tag

Hi Everyone,

Mary Pat here with you today bringing you a super fun card using Core’dinations cardstock and Core Tags.  I love tags!  Tags can be used in so many more ways other than your typical gift tag.  Today I use a Core Tag as the center focal point for my card.
