Stampin’ Up! meets Core’dinations

Yes, essay avoidance or just needing to create something, I think both of these win today’s vote!  So, making cards, playing with crafting toys = heaven for me.  I should watch the film to do with my essay again, I could quite easily have it playing in the background whilst I cut and stick – must remember this for next time 🙂

I have trimmed down a sheet of 12×12 Core’dination cardstock in half so I can make a 6″ square card.

Using an edgelit I have then ‘trimmed’ off a piece of the front of the card.  So that my edgelit was straight I  used my trimmer as a guide and used a piece of scotch tape (just a tiny piece) to hold the edgelit down.

Then just ran it through my big shot.

For a bit of decoration on the back of the card, I’ve used the simply scored embossing borders to add a bit of a wave.

Next, using some of the stitched grosgrain ribbon, I’ve added this to the ‘top’ half of the front of the card. Then trimmed down a sheet of dsp from the first edition paper so that it is 6″ square and from the piece of core’dinations cardstock, trimmed a small piece off it so that I could add it to the bottom of the dsp to add a bit of weight (stops the card falling flat!).

If you are not aware of core’dinations cardstock, it has a core so you can sand down the edges – over the embossing parts – to give a great effect.

I’ve finished off my card with some punched butterflies (using some scrap dsp) and stamped a sentiment from the sassy salutations stamp set.

Are you on pinterest? I find it most addictive and is a way of essay avoidance.  However, on that front (the looming essay), I have finally got a few words down in ‘ink’, once again loads of notes which, once again, need to be turned into something that makes sense!

May the crafting mojo be with you 🙂
