More Authentique Cards with Jennifer Edwardson

It is no surprise here that we love our Authentique papers! Today Jennifer Edwardson has whipped up some amazing cards for your inspiration. See what you can do with some David Tutera Celebrate Cardmaking system pieces and some gorgeous patterned paper? You can whip up TONS of cards is a short amount of time because all of the cardbases are premade, scored and folded for you.  So make sure you check out Step 1 HERE.

I love giving sets of gift cards for birthdays, thank you and hostess gifts so when I saw the cellection of Authentique product I got to work with I knew it would be perfect for this !!
 
The colors in ‘Be(you)tiful’ are gorgeous and they work so well with the Core’dinations cardstock.  I started all my cards using David Tutera Celebrate card bases.  I chose the pearl cardstock cards – they have become my new fave – love the shimmer !! The colors of these cards worked so well with the colors in the patterned paper ……
 
I chose a few complimentary pieces of cardstock and got to work.  On some cards I used embossing folders on the card base and others I embossed the cardstock and sanded and layered them mixed with the Authentique papers and die cuts …… I even had twine and sentiments in my studio to match !!
 
I was thrilled with being able to get a gorgeous set of (8) A2 sized cards using (1) 12 x 12 die cut sheet and a few pieces of patterned paper from a 6 x 6″ pad.  Add in the card bases and a few pieces of Core’dinations  cardstock and ta-da!

And a goooorgeous card from Gail Linder. I mean she CUT this pattern herself?!?!

I just loved the colors in the Be(You)tiful collection and wanted to include a few patterns in my project, along with a couple of coordinating colors of Core! A quick search on Pinterest for chevron patterns and I decided on one and got to work building it up. 
 
It took a little while to piece it all together but am very happy with how it turned out. I chose a couple of colors from the Vintage cardstock collection to match beautifully, and the vintage wash toned with the style of the papers.  
 
What fun colors and patterns to play with!

The fabulous Kate Nolan Denham is up next with a layout. I love how she used the Red Pepper from the Brights Collection pack with the Be(you)tiful line. There are all these little accents of this color throughout the line and it is so so pretty!

I pulled out Core’dinations Brights Core Essential Collection to find the perfect cardstock to play on the pretty colors in Authentique’s Be(you)tiful Collection.  It matches  perfectly with bits and pieces of this line like here in the arrow from the accents sheet.

The rosettes were created from Core’dinations Cardstock and a die by Sizzix.  I used the same rosette die in creating ruffled border.  Instead of folding and connecting the the rosettes,  I overlapped the three creased layers to create the border. Let’s not forget about the amazing journal spots that come with Authenique collections. Cut them out and you have instant journaling areas. No excuses not to journal!

And a fast and fabulous card from Kim Moreno! You can never have too many of these ready to go for those special occasions that just seem to sneak up on you. Kim embossed the grey cardstock and sanded it slightly to reveal the color core and then tore it along the bottom edge. Aftering  punching and sasnding the butterflies, she adhered them to her card.

Distressing is sooooooooooooooo much fun with Core! AND you need a good adhesive to adhere 4 layers of cardstock. And something new that I tried….I put my rubons on first and then sanded over them so they got a bit distressed, too.
