Only a few more days until Christmas! One of the things that is SO GREAT about Core’dinations is that you can mix and match our lines beautifully. They all core’dinate…even our Core’dinations lines and David Tutera Celebrate Cardmaking System. Designer Jennifer Edwardson does this for us today!
Only a few more days until Christmas! Let’s get those cards done and mailed, right? Well if you are like me then you are always a bit behind. That is why David Tutera Celebrate cardmaking system is for YOU! You can mix and match the layers AND mix it with some Core’dinations carstock, too!!! Let’s take a look at what Jennifer Edwardson did with it today:
Like many of you I know, I too have been making Christmas cards like crazy lately and I’ve got a couple to share with you today !!
I started with an A7 (5 x 7) David Tutera card base and put it through my embossing machine with my fave Darice snowflake embossing folder.
I created the first ‘tree’ by punching snowflakes from white Glitter Silk cardstock and rasied them with 3D foam. I embossed a piece of brown cardstock from the Tim Holtz & Ranger Distress 4 1/4 x 5 1/2″ paper pad (LOVE these – cardmakers NEED these pads) ….. I used the Darice woodgrain embossing folder and then sanded the top lightly to show the pattern !!
I added a star and sentiment from the David Tutera Celebrate Step 3 embellishment packs and finished this one off with some red twine.
I created the 2nd card using the same steps but different cardstock !!
I started with the same kraft card base and then punched smaller heart shapes from Tim Holtz Kraft-Core Shattered cardstock and raised them using 3D foam …..
I punched a circle from the Tim Holtz & Ranger Distress cardstock pack and embossed it with a circle embossing folder and lightly sanded off the top for the ‘trunk’ of the tree ……
…… again the tree top and sentiment are from the Step 3 packs by David Tutera Celebrate with a little red twine wrapping it all up with a bow !!!
……. 2 different ways to create the same Christmas-y card featuring Core’dinations and David Tutera Celebrate !!!

And a few quick cards using the David Tutera Celebrate Cardmaking system from Debbie Standard
! Again..we cannot stay this enough but they are as easy as ONE-TWO-THREE!
Debbie embossed her cardbase here like Jennifer did above. Don’t be afraid to have fun with your premade cardbases!
Oh and how about some white on white? LOOOOVE it! The Glitter Silk is so perfect for this!
We are so excited about the BRAND NEW David Tutera Celebrate cardmaking system embellishments!
Today our David Tutera Celebrate design team is creating some Halloween cards for us!
First up is Designer Margie Higuchi. Margie used the Glitter Silk Carstock base for her card. You don’t need much more than that to add sparkle and pizazz to your cards!
AND all THREE of the projects have FREE downloadable pdf’s so you can recreate these cards at home. How cool is that? Just check out our How To page HERE.
This first card is from Debbie Standard using only Step 3 embellishments! How cuuuute?
And how fun is this card? Debbie used some mists on her black Step 2 layer to match that orange layer. Clever, huh??? And these banners come PRE-CUT for you in the new embellishement packs. How cool is that? Just punch out and sand…easy as 1-2-3!
We don’t forget about our HUGE giveaway!

I think my new favorite color is white…is that possible?!?!?
Shaunte Wadley created these beauties for us today…wowzas! Creating dramatic monochromatic projects is so easy with Core because you can mix and match the different lines for some sparkle…emboss for some texture and you have the perfect card. For each card, I listed the lines she used so you can look closely and see beautiful details. Little things like different embossed layers, pearls and stitching make all the difference.
For more monochromatic ideas check out a post we did a few weeks ago HERE.
Card One is the simpliest with a David Tutera Cardmaking system white smooth cardbase, Core Essentials white, and the butterfly is Core Couture.
Card two: start with a David Tutera Cardmaking system white cardbase and emboss it. Then add a strip of Core Couture with die cut letters, then emboss some Core Essentials white in another strip. Stitch together. Then add butterflies laong the top in Glitter Silk and a strip along the bottom from Step 3 of the David Tutera Celebrate Cardmaking system.
Again, starting with a David Tutera Celebrate cardmaking system smooth white cardbase, emboss a layer in white Core Essentials. Adhere with Helmar Zap dotsafter punching a hole in the side, add white heart on a string from Glitter Silk Cardstock, finish by creating some embossed strips along the bottom with scalloped pieces, an embossed strip from Core Couture and a banner created using a Dymo Label maker.
Did you know we have a video on how to create with your Label Maker? Check it out HERE!

Very pretty card. Love the textures and embellishments.
MaryLou email ellen_sosnoski@core’dinations.com with your full name, address and phone number with Tombow Winner in the subject line.
And how about another card from Design Team Member Heather Kaesgan? A super cute card using some Marvy Uchida punches and Glitter Silk, Core Couture, Core Essentials and a Darice embossing folder for the buttons. What a great mix don you think? Love how the ribbon that she created with the punches pops off the top a bit. Oh of cours..Tombow adhesive!
One of the great things about Core is that you can mix and match ALL of our lines together SEAMLESSLY! This first card by Designer Suzanna Lee mixes Core’dinations lines and the David Tutera Celebrate layers to make the CUTEST card! Please, two different sized googley eyes? How ca-ute is that?!???!?!
Here are some tidbits from Suzanna regarding these projects:
One of the many amazing things about Coredinations is the texture you can create.The embossability of Core made it possible to create a whole beach scene; the waves below from Glitter Silk, the sunny sky from David Tutera layers and the clouds from good ol Snowflake. The Glitter Silk creates a lovely glimmer of sun reflecting off the waves! I prefer to stamp on a solid cardstock and find that the tags are the perfect size for that very purpose.

And next up a black and yellow card…one of my FAVE color combos!!! AND the Darice honeycomb/hexagon embosing folder is too perfect for this theme.
This card is inspired by the bee stamp. Browsing the aisles of the store, this stamp caught my eye and screamed, take me home with you! (Ever have that happen to you?!). Emboss some Core for a subtle hive for her to buzz around and you have an adorable card!

And a layout using some super cool techniques! Paper tearing…inking the Spotted Cardstock..Suzanna really works it here!
One of the tag lines for Core-dinations is Tear it and that’s what I challenged myself to do with this layout. I have a tearing phobia… I like things nice and neat and clean. There is nothing neat about tearing… I get in a quiet panic just at the thought of tearing. Sound familiar? Well, take a deep breath and do as I did, remind yourself that you have a thousand more pieces of paper in your stash and it’s okay of you “mess it up”. Though if you think about it, you can’t really mess it up. Tearing is tearing and it’s supposed to look that way! Right? Another nifty little thing I did with this layout is paint. Actually I used a brayer to roll paint onto the Spotted Jillian dot for a multi-color effect. Amazing what you can do with Core!!!
Here is close up of that inking on the white Spotted Cardstock!
