Hi, Ava here today and I would like to share a couple of Wedding Cards with you that I made in anticipation of the summer Wedding season upon us.
The David Tutera Celebration Card Embellishment Kits should be a staple in every home to help make fresh cards for any occasion.  The 3 step kits are ready to use and a little sanding adds texture to the cards.
Step # 1
Select a card base from the many choices that are available. I am using the Window Die cut cardbases.
Step # 2
Select a decorative layer from the Step # 2 or your choice of matching colored Core’dinations Cardstock.
Step # 3
Add matching embellishments from the Love Embellishment Kit and fun bow from some May Arts ribbon.

How Do You Thank Your Teachers?

Getting ready for the end of the school year means thanking those who have spent the year inspiring our little ones to learn.  Today Kate Nolan Denham is sharing a gift bag and card made with a variety Core’dinations Cardstock.
I decorated a simple kraft gift bag from Darice by creating a base designed to look similar to a chalk board.  The same base design was used for the thank you card.
The giant cardstock pencils on both the bag and card were scored, sanded and bent to give it the 3-D effect of a real pencil.

One embossing folder, five different colors

Check out this great layout from Jennifer Edwardson using one embossing folder and five different colors from our Graphic45 Signature Series Lights collection pack.
This sweet pic of my girl, Emma, and one of her closest friends was taken this past summer and I was so excited that I could use this fun lace doily embossing folder on my Core’dinations cardstock as is matched with Mackenzie’s creme top .

I chose several colors of Core’dinations  to pick up the colors in my pictures and used the same portion of the embossing folder on each one.  One of my fave things about Core cardstock is how well it picks up the tiniest details of the embossing folder like with this one when you sand it gently.   The lace pattern really stands out so beautifully!
And’t don’t forget about the new 110 lb premium cardstock. It is great for journaling right from you computer.

I rounded the corners and cut my larger photo the same way.  For the smaller ring pictures, I cut the photo down to what I wanted to show and then cut it in half again to adhered it on 2 different mats.
