Spellbinders & Core’dinations Blog Swap Day Two


core
Welcome to the Spellbinders and Core’dinations Blog Swap!


This week Spellbinders™ has teamed up with our Core’dinations Color Core Cardstock® to showcase the wonderful ways our products work together!


I wanted to make a set as a little encouragement for my daughter’s teacher.  I think that teacher’s work so very hard and could always use extra appreciation when they aren’t expecting it!  He loves Starbucks, so I thought I’d include a few VIA’s and a masculine card.

Supplies:  Spellbinders - Sea Flowers Imressabilities, Classic Ric Rac Edgeabilities, Labels Twenty-Two, Nested Lacey Pennants, Nested Pennants, Grand Large Labels, Labels Twenty-One; Core’Dinations ColorCore Cardstock - Core Impressions (Basic Grey Whimsy Collection); Sickers – Cosmo Cricket Tiny Type Stickers, button, twine

Sophistication, value and maximum versatility make Spellbinders™ die templates #1. Beautiful Details Inspiring Creativity…Spellbinders unique triple function die templates allow you to cut, emboss, and then stencil through the die template for unlimited possibilities. The Spellbinders Grand Calibur® machine and Spellbinders Grand Nestabilities™ die templates cut and emboss up to 11¾”, taking die cutting to grand proportions.

Core’dinations ColorCore Cardstock is the only sandable cardstock with a color core. Sand it, tear it, emboss it and so much more! The Core Essentials line comes in over 160 colors with matching color families. Or maybe you are looking for something a bit more contrasting like the Black Magic or Chocolate Box collections. The sandable core will shine through the unique black and brown colors once it is sanded. Core’dinations has also teamed up with industry leading companies such as Pink Paislee, Basic Grey, Graphic45 and more to create new and unique pre-embossed cardstock that perfectly accents their patterned papers.

I always think masculine cards are harder to make. Maybe it's because I love flowers and want to put them on everything. Great job on the card!
