The David Tutera cardmaking system makes life so easy! Pick a cardbase (Step 1), Pick a layer (Step 2), and add some embellishments (Step 3) and you are done! It’s that easy. Today Debbie Standard created some cards using this process.

Add some interest with your own embossing folders  or use the pre-embossed Step 2 layers.

Debbie created her own window in her pre-made cardbase by simpling running it through her diecut machine!

Happy New Year Cards

Filed under Core Blog, Xyron

Wishing someone a Happy New Year is such a great way to kick off the year! Positive thoughts for a positive start to the new year!

Kate here today to share two bright and happy New Year’s cards I made using Core’dination Cardstock.

Kicking it off with a BRIGHT card.  The 4.5″ x 6″ card base and all brightly colored layers were made from the Core Essentials Bright Collection.  I embossed the yellow layer with a chevron embossing folder by Darice.  While embossing, I placed a cardstock shim on top of the plate sandwich. When I ran  this through my Big Shot, the embossing cut through the paper just where the shim was placed.  
Supplies:
Darice Chevron Embossing Folder
Die-namics Alpha Dies
Xyron Adhesives
This picture perfect card whipped up in no time at all!  The 4.5″ x 6″ card base is Core’dinations Tulip Jillian Dot. I sanded the little dots with my Sand It Gadget.  The sentiment is printed on a scrap piece of Core’dinations Cardstock (pretty sure it is in the Neutral Collection).  Once printed, I tore the paper and added a bit of Chalking Ink to match the Tulip colored base.  
Supplies:
Core’dinations Jillian Dot Collection
Core’dinations 6″x 6″ Glitter Silk Collection
Core’dinations Smooth Stamping Paper
Unity Stamp Co.
Memento Ink
Quick Quotes Chalking Ink

Wishing you all a Happy and Healthy New Year! ~Kate

Some More Father’s Day inspiration…

Hi Everyone!  Ellen here today with a Father’s Day card I made…well two of them.  And they are very different!  I was inspired this week by two different things.

First up, I was working with some Couture Creations dies and after my cut I realized unfortunately that my sandwich was wrong. So it didn’t cut all the way through. That happens to me from time to time and I just put them in my recycle bin. WEll not this this time! I thought…I can do something with that…and I did! You have to check out their Doily dies..they are AWESOME! And versatile….

There was no way I could cut this with craft knife because it was too detailed so I grabbed my Sand it Gadget and I sanded and sanded and sanded a bit more and the “etched” image created starts to pop off the card.  It’s subtle but I think it works AND I saved some scraps ;)

And next up I was in my inbox and the daily RSS feed from Scrapbook & Cards Today was there and I found this treat: Folded Shirt Card for Father’s Day!

Aly Dosdal from the WRMK Design Team originally did the video so I had to try it out because I just KNEW that Core w0uld be awesome with this tutorial. I used Core Essentials for the shirt, Chocolate Box for the tie and background and a David Tutera Celebrate card for the base. I cannot get enough of these square cards!   For the original video check out the WRMK blog .

I gotta tell you…I did it on the FIRST try so it wasn’t that hard. You will need your Scor-Pal or scoring tool of some sort.

And  here is the inside of the card. You can open it up and put something in there.
