A little goes a long way with Core’dinations! it is amazing how easy you can make monochromatic projects with just a few sheets of cardstock!

 

Vivian Keh has so many small yet incredible details on this card.

A great way to add interest to your projects is to cut an image from the same color cardstock as your layout or card base.  It is visually interesting and, in some instances, even looks like faux embossing! Plus…I am a sucker for fur baby layouts!

Hi there, Core’dinations friends! Vivian Keh here to share a layout of one of our furry babies, Jujubee. This past Christmas Eve, sadly, we lost her to cancer so I wanted to honor her in a layout.

Here are a few close ups of the details:

I die-cut these pretty birds using Core’dinations Core Essentials in Burgundy, sanding the edges for an elegant, subtle effect. For a bit of dimension, I propped the birds’ wings up on a small pop dot.

The pretty flourishes were crafted the same way, creating nice movement without being distracting.

To soften the horizontal lines of the composition, I added some Sizzix die-cut branches in a softer hue, “Concerto,” and paper punched some dainty blossoms in “Snowflake.”

This butterfly in the softest tint, “Rose Embroidery,” was dry embossed and sanded to further the natural theme of this layout.

I hope you enjoyed my project today. Thanks so much for visiting with me here on the Core blog. Looking forward to next time!

We have been so crazy this month we only got to post twice about our June Colour Lover’s Inspiration from our Pinterest Board.

Summer is crazy, isn’t it?!?!? Before I show you this super cute card …did you hear??!?!?!??!!?!?!??!

Mark your calendars…all you need is CORE!

Here is our June Inspiration piece…

And Debbie Standard’s take. LOVE how she used the tone on tone here. Debbie used the Stacy Julian Core Impressions line. In that pack you get pre-embossed sheets and canvas (plain Core Essentials) sheets that match so you can core’dinate easy projects like this. The different embossed patterns look amazing, too!

Add some May Arts ribbon and you have a gorgeous card!
