Okay..now here’s that inspo!!!!

Ava here to share with you a cute little Christmas Decor item that you can make using the Core’dinations Cardstock Neutral collection.  Snip a few pieces of greenery from outdoors and you have a great table center piece or home decor item.

Search the internet images for pattern’s or check out Coats and Clark for this great reindeer pattern.

Emboss, sand and cut out two pieces of each pattern for each of the reindeer.  You need a front and back which is glued together.

And a close up:

See how nice the inner core of the Core’dinations Cardstock matches so well with the paper pieced antler color of the Core’dinations Neutral collection?

EEEEEK! I love Halloween so much I can’t stand it! So over the next few weeks we will be showcasing some Halloween projects for you. First up we have Ava Gavloski working her Core magic Halloween style ;)

AND Ava totally works the Core Cuts. She used one of the diecuts from the Core Cuts pack, folded it in half and made a card out of it! BRILLIANT!

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Tis the season of pumpkins and witches! This card was such a treat (no pun intended) to design. The Core’dinations Shazam Black Magic inner core, jumps from the Black magic collection. PERFECT for all you Halloween projects. 
 
Take a close look at how crisp the sanded scrolls of  orange vibrantly pop from the matted black texture of the core’dinations cardstock.

Now add a card base from the bold core cuts collection and you have a striking card to share with family and friends during this Halloween season.

The colors are so festive.  Sanding this kraft core give so much texture to the layout.

I have made a second page to complement the layout with a large pocket with tag’s, so that additional photo’s can be included.
