Core'dinations Cardstock

After watching Paperclipping live last Tuesday I was inspired to get out my Core'dinations cardstock & Cuttlebug embossing folders. Noell received a variety of paper & that got my creative wheels spinning for yet another winter challenge layout.

I bought Core'dinations pack at Hobby Lobby when it was 50% off. I've used it a bunch of times on cards.

It's a similar weight as Bazzill but the texture/color is more visible so I keep that in mind for where I can use it. For the most part I will still buy Bazzill by the piece or American Crafts white cardstock by the pack.

To get the snowflake embossed I ran it thru the Cuttlebug 3 different times. A helpful tip is to not run it all the way thru each time as it will smash down some of the previous embossing & leave a mark.

I sanded a little bit with a black nail file & inked the edges with Chestnut Roan Colorbox chalk.

Thanks for visiting. Stay warm & take some time to be creative

Remember Paperclipping live is on tonight at 8:30 pm eastern time. Come join the fun
