Whether it’s a little or a lot, our Chocolate Box adds immediate impact on your papercrafting projects! It is definitely great for masculine projects as Kate did on this layout and for the Father’s Day cards we have for you today!

Debbie Standard paired hers with blue and some other neutrals. A great tip is to mix and match different embossed patterns for added interest like Debbie did for this card:

And how cute is this card from Tracy Gruber?  I love how she has a more whimsical Father’s Day take:
TracyChocoBoxCard
Cut a piece of Chocolate Box card stock to 4″ x 5 1/4″.”  Use the Curved Edge die from Simon Says Stamp to curve the bottom of the card stock.  Next, emboss it with the Asst. Stars embossing folder from Darice.  Sand over the embossed card stock with the Sand It Gadget.  Stamp the dinosaur and tree images from the Lawn Fawn Critters from the Part set onto 110lb Smooth Cardstock.  Color them in with Copics and fussy cut them out.  Attach the pieces to the card base and them tie the natural twine from May Arts around the card.  Stamp the sentiment in Memento Tuxedo Black ink and the dinosaur print in Memento Teal Zeal ink.

We have another super cute Thank You Teacher idea from Debbie Standard. This David Tutera Laser Cut Favor Box is the PERFECT idea for a super quick gift. All you need to do is add some candy and fold the box on the pre-scored lines. Finish it off David Tutera Celebrate Tag and sentiment and you are done! I ALWAYS reach for a Core Tag when finishing off a gift whether is one of our Core Tags or David Tutera Celebrate tags. They are the finishing touch for any project and always look great with the silver grommet and sanding.

Thank you teacher Debbie2

David Tutera Celebrate Brights Tags are sandable, color core tags that come with a metal grommet. There are 24 gorgeous tags in four different colors and 6 designs and it includes string!

Happy Birthday Box

May 9, 2014 by  
Filed under Core Blog

Today we have Jennifer Edwardson sharing a great alternative to a traditional birthday card.
I’ve seen these great pop up cards but had never tackled one until now and I love how it came together.  I used a Silhouette cut file and 4 spring colors of Core’dinations cardstock Graphic45 Signature Series.  One of the many great things about Core cardstock is how well it cuts through any die cutting machine.  This is an A2 size card so the cuts are very detailed and quite small and the cardstock cuts great!
Coredinations Birthday Box
Once I had the green, blue and red pieces cut, I ran them through my eBosser with a couple of embossing folders and then lightly sanded them each to make the patterns pop !! I loved adhering all the bits to the inside so when it is ‘opened’ the flowers open up too.  A little butterfly punch and a birthday sentiment and this card is ready for my Mom’s birthday.
