CAS Cards with Graphic 45 Signature Series

I love all the Core’dinations collections but one of my favorites is the Graphic 45 Signature Series. The colors are just so rich and yummy and the match perfectly to the Graphic 45 pattern papers. For my projects I made a feminine and masculine card to show the versatility of our cardstock and their patterned papers.

Feminine Sentiment Card

Graphic45-card1

Feminine Sentiment Card Supplies:

For this card I used the Place in Time collection. For my Cardstock I used the Signature Series Lights collection. I layered my cardstock and embossed the Robin’s Egg using a Darice embossing folder and then layered my pattern paper on top. For my sentiment I used some Paper Smooches dies and stamps.

Masculine Birthday Card

For my masculine card I used the Graphic 45 Good ol Sports collection along with my Core’dinations Signature Series Darks. I once again, I layered my cardstock and used the tearing technique at the botton of the cardstock. I then punched circles of the pattern paper and layered them on the card.

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.

Hi friends!  It’s Joy here, sharing a fun fall acorn box and card with you today.  What a fun way to say hello, thank you or happy fall to that special friend, co-worker or teacher!

Acorn Card and Box Supplies:

Step 1. Use the Silhouette Cameo to cut out all the pieces for the 3D acorn box and card from Core’dinations Neutrals cardstock and Core Basics white.  These are the pieces that make up the box.

Step 2. Emboss the top of the acorn, the stem and the tan square piece that goes on the card using the Darice basket weave background embossing folder.  The leaf is embossed with the Darice crackle embossing folder.  After embossing, the sanding really brings out the texture.  So cool!

This card is just three simple pieces!  YAY to that!

Step 3. Cut a piece of white cardstock for the inside of the card and stamp it with a stamp from the Joy’s Life It’s All Fall Puns stamp set.  I thought this sentiment I created was perfect for this card!
