Creating with the Tim Holtz Kraft Core Shattered line is SO MUCH fun! This card was just perfect for using this line. Did you know that all the Kraft Core lines Core’dinate? Design Team Member Debbie Standard embossed the Core shattered and lightly sanded it so that it would show both the Shattered as well as the embossed image.
Debbie made this card using some of the Tim Holtz Shattered collection in the 6 X 6. This time she didn’t emboss it just left it as is. Then she layered it over Core Essentials Brights cardstock and stamped on the back of the white for the top of the card.
And a layout using some BasicGrey Core Impressions: According to Debbie, she loves creating layouts using some of the Core Impressions as the background . Sanded and dusted it creates such a great palette to use on your page.

Tuesday’s Tip comes from Design Team Member Char Dobson who created these gorgeous wraps for her wine bottles. Now I know these have a bit of a festive Holiday theme but you could easily make these for any Holiday or special occasion you may have. So Today’s tip is to alter! Don’t be afraid to take ordinary, every day items you see around your house and add your own personal touch to them.
Remember our 12 Days of Techniques in December? Well this project features debossing. Such a fun and easy way to add a little spice to your projects.
