Happy Hollydays Card and Box by Joy from JoysLife.com

Step 1. I cut out the holly leaves and box using Core’dinations Spotted Tillie Dot and the Silhouette Cameo 2.  The berries were cut using the pretty Core’dinations Glitter Silk cardstock.  I used the 3D Holly Box (Silhouette ID #52658) and duplicated and shrank more of the holly to recreate the image on the card.

Step 2. I added adhesive to the holly leaves and berries using the Xyron 5″ Creative Station.

The holly looks so pretty with these papers!

Step 3: I assembled the box and used liquid glue to secure the sides and bottom.  A combination of the Xyron and liquid glue helped me adhere all the parts of the box and card.

Step 4: I stamped the holly sentiment from the Joy’s Life Oh Christmas Puns stamp set onto a Core’dinations kraft card using red ink.

I hope you enjoyed this project!  When I’m not here you can find me at JoysLife.com!

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.

An A-Maize-ing Day Card

Hi friends!  It’s Joy here, sharing a fun fall card with you today!

AmaizeingCardJoysLifecom-e1414700841538

An A-Maize-ing Day Card Supplies:

Step 1. Use the Silhouette Cameo to cut out all of the pieces that create the harvest corn from the SVGCuts.com Enchanted Autumn SVG kit.  I’m using Core’dinations Tim Holtz Kraft-Core Shattered Collection Cardstock to create all of the visible layers.  I’m also using the 6×6 sized cardstock which fits perfectly on a mat for most die cut machines.  I like to use a Cricut mat with my Silhouette Cameo but it will fit on a Cameo mat too.

Amaizeing Card Created by Joy Dickson of Joy's Life.com for Core'dinations

Step 2.  After the corn is cut out, glue the pieces together.  I resized my pieces to fit a standard A2 card, so they easily fit through the Xyron 3″ Sticker maker.

Step 3.  For dimension, use foam pop dots between some of the layers!

Step 4.  I decided to cut a piece of Core’dinations Tim Holtz Kraft-Core Shattered Collection Cardstock to cover the top of the Core’dinations A2 Kraft Cards I’m using.  I also cut another piece for my embossed sentiment.

Step 5.  Using Joy’s Life It’s All Fall Puns stamp set, I stamped onto the Core’dinations cardstock with Versamark and then heat embossed the saying with fine gold embossing powder.

Step 6. Before I was finished I cut a few more strips of paper and glued them down to add more focus to the sentiment.  After tying on some twine, adding a button and some adhesive gems, the card was complete.  Well, almost.  I then decided to use a corner rounding paper punch and round all of the corners of the card.  Ta da!  All done!

I hope you enjoyed my project!

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.
