Spring Meadow Kraft Card

Core’dinations makes it so easy to create cute cards with lots of texture in just a few minutes. This is really great if you have to make multiples of cards for parties, thank-you’s, etc. The Deco-Edge Kraft Cards and Envelopes are a real treat to use, not only for the trendy kraft color, but also with the fancy cut edge, half your work is already done. Kraft is also a great color choice, because it can be used for masculine and feminine projects alike.


Spring Meadow Kraft Card Supplies:


Step 1.  Cut a panel of blue cardstock to fit on the card front.

Step 2.  Emboss the panel and sand the image with the Sand-it Gadget,


Step 3.  Adhere to the card base.

Step 4.  Add dimension to the flower buds, by add a dot of white with the  Pico Embellisher, to each of the dots on the design.


Step 5.  Punch small flower to layer over the flowers.  Distress the flowers with a Sand-it Gadget.

Step 6.  Finish the flowers with a small adhesive pearl in the center.


This is not my typical color palette, but I think it is a great combination for spring.  Add the distressing, and it reminds me of a favorite pair of worn blue jeans.

Quick and Easy 5 and 10 Minute Cards

Jennifer Edwardson here with you to share some quick and easy cards you can make in under 10 minutes! Sometimes you just need a quick card …. you know when you have the gift but forgot the card  or you just want to get one in the mail fast? These are a few ideas that are super easy, super cute and ready for any sentiment you might need.
  I added a Step 2 layer that coordinated and gently sanded the top off the show the lighter color inner core.  I embossed a couple of butterfly die cuts and sanded them to show the purple core but only adhered them  to the card in the center so they look like they’re ‘flying’ ….. a few adhesive backed pearls and a sentment and this was done in under 10 minutes !!!


5 MINUTE CARD ALERT !!  This one was even faster. Again I went with a polka dot base but chose kraft instead.  I adhered (3) of the pre-embossed envelope seals and raised them using 3D foam and added a ‘miss you’ sentiment sticker to the middle – DONE !!  Cute and quick – love that !!

Hi! Jill from Every Day is an Occasion  here to share some Clean and Simple Spring Cards with you. These cards are so beautiful and yet so simple!!

Clean and Simple Spring Cards

Clean and Simple Spring Cards by Every Day is an Occasion

To make these cards, I used this Silhouette Cut. Then I used all different colors from the Gemstones Pack, Green Spotted Core, Whitewash Core, and the 110 lb White Core. The best way I have found to make a bunch of cards is to use the cut on several different colors but only one color at a time and then mix and match the colors.

Clean and Simple Card 2 by Every Day is an Occasion

I just love sanding the tips of the Whitewash Core. The color shows through so vividly.

Clean and Simple Card 3 by Every Day is an Occasion

I used the Green Spotted Core for the leaves. It is really fun to sand and really gives the card that pop.

Envelopes and liners by Every Day is an Occasion

I made envelopes and liners with each card. I used a Pastels, 110 lb White Core, and this Silhouette Cut to make envelopes and liners.
