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:

Whether it’s a little or a lot, our Chocolate Box looks great and really stands out as seen on this card by Designer Trine Brandt Lassen. The smooth kraft base looks amazing embossed, too!

And how cute is this card from Tracy Gruber?  I love how she has a more whimsical Father’s Day take:

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.

Jennifer Edwardson’s Photo Card

First up today we have some fun stuff for  you.

We are sponsoring a giveaway over at Cookin’ Up Creations!  Would you love to win this???   Check out the Forum HERE and how to win HERE!

So we have some more ideas for you for Father’s Day. Love this idea from Jennifer Edwardson…it can be used for ANY occasion…at tri-fold card! Of course, it is full of tons and tons of gorgeous Core’dinations Cardstock!

Here is a little bit about this project from Jennifer:

I am pretty new to the Silhouette game but have been having so much fun finding new pieces to cut out and turn into great projects !! I loved this folding card and thought it would be great to add a couple of photos to as a gift…..It would look so cute on a shelf, mantle or bedside table too !!


I cut the base using the Kraft-Core Nostalgic Collection (No.23) and then ran either end thru my die cutting machine with swirly embossing folder. Then I sanded off the top layer to show the kraft underneath as well as the edges of the base too. I cut a few more doilies out as well and embossed both sides of the same cardstock and sanded off the top layer to those as well.


I punched a few flowers from some of the Core Essentials that coordinated with my photos and layered all the pieces together finishing them off with a little circle punched from my fave Core Couture in Black Tie. I added a couple of Core Couture butterflies and some clear gems from the David Tutera Celebrate collection too !! I really love how this all came together and can’t wait to give this to the kids’ grandparents :)


Supplies:
Kraft-Core Nostalgic Collection – No. 23
Core Essentials – Harbourside
Core Essentials – Dahlia

Some More Father’s Day inspiration…

Hi Everyone!  Ellen here today with a Father’s Day card I made…well two of them.  And they are very different!  I was inspired this week by two different things.

First up, I was working with some Couture Creations dies and after my cut I realized unfortunately that my sandwich was wrong. So it didn’t cut all the way through. That happens to me from time to time and I just put them in my recycle bin. WEll not this this time! I thought…I can do something with that…and I did! You have to check out their Doily dies..they are AWESOME! And versatile….

There was no way I could cut this with craft knife because it was too detailed so I grabbed my Sand it Gadget and I sanded and sanded and sanded a bit more and the “etched” image created starts to pop off the card.  It’s subtle but I think it works AND I saved some scraps ;)

And next up I was in my inbox and the daily RSS feed from Scrapbook & Cards Today was there and I found this treat: Folded Shirt Card for Father’s Day!

Aly Dosdal from the WRMK Design Team originally did the video so I had to try it out because I just KNEW that Core w0uld be awesome with this tutorial. I used Core Essentials for the shirt, Chocolate Box for the tie and background and a David Tutera Celebrate card for the base. I cannot get enough of these square cards!   For the original video check out the WRMK blog .

I gotta tell you…I did it on the FIRST try so it wasn’t that hard. You will need your Scor-Pal or scoring tool of some sort.

And  here is the inside of the card. You can open it up and put something in there.
