David Tutera™ ….
and Core’dinations ColorCore Cardstock introduce to you….
YES… you read it right. The amazing David Tutera™ from My Fair Wedding AND the creator of his gorgeous Embellish Jewelry line (among many other things) created an awesome cardmaking system with the beautiful Core’dinations Cardstock you all know and love.
Not only will you get that fun, sandable, colored Core but you will also get pre-made cardbases, sentiments, tags, layers AND MORE! David Tutera™ has been a staple in the DIY crafting industry for years with his Bridal Collection that is available at JoAnn Fabric & Craft Stores. The David Tutera™ Celebrate card system was created with that very same concept in mind. Just like his weddings, every card can be custom designed and created for that special occasion.
So what should you do next? Hurry up and like the brand, new page on Facebook here! And keep reading below for more details….
Make sure you check our website here and go to each step. There are THREE steps ….
1.) Pick your card base. You will see A1, A2, A6 A7 and even SQUARE card bases to choose from in a variety Core’dinations Cardstock.
2.) Add Layers. Hmmm….what is a layer you ask? Once you select your card base, you can add style and color by choosing layers that come in a variety of different colors. They even come pre-embossed and die-cut so you don’t need to do anything but adhere to your card base. Well, you may want to sand a bit
3.) Embellish. Ah, yes. Stickers and Shapes! Flowers, butterflies, tags, shells, string, buttons, jewels..you name it we have it for you packed together and ready to mix and match to add that final touch to that perfect card for any occasion.
EASY! In three simple steps you have a gorgeous card. Check out our How To downloadable PDF’s and Step-by-Step videos that will show you easy steps to create beautiful projects. We will have many, many more of these to come very soon…including more ideas from our Card Design Team!

My name is Debbie Standard. I have been scrapping for about 15 years now. I am a wife, mother to four, step-mother to two more, grandmother to 11 and have a great-granddaughter by my husband’s oldest grandchild. To keep myself in scrapping supplies I work as a Critical Care Nurse in the Surgical/Trauma ICU in a level one trauma center in San Antonio, Texas. I have been doing this for about 18 years now. I am only working part-time now and that gives me more time to spend doing the things I love to do – scrapping, crocheting, running, kayaking and biking. We live on three acres near the Guadalupe River where we built our dream home. I have been published in most all of the US scrapping magazines. I love creating both cards and layouts and luckily have a lot of kids and grand-kids to use for subjects. I have met so many wonderful people through the scrap world who have become my long distance friends. I am on a few more card Design Teams as well so get to spread the Core’dination’s around. I am thrilled to be a part of this creative team. Core’dination’s products are just amazing and I can’t imagine using any other cardstock. There is such a huge selection of products and they are always coming out with something new and different – makes me want to scrap all the time. I am so honored to work with this talented group of women – they are such an inspiration and Core’dination’s staff is just the best!
