How to "Core-dinate"

I am going to show you how easy it is to make a card using our "Core-dinations" cardstock.
This special cardstock has its colour on the surface with the core in a natural or white state.
Exposing the core by sanding will expose the raw core adding texture to any of your projects. I find this especialy useful in vintage projects or anything that requires texture.
Run Core-dinations card through the Big shot using the honeycombe embossing folder.

Sand the raised card using a sanding block until you are happy with the result.

Take a smaller piece of core-dinations card for mounting up your image. This crdstock has a textured surface on one side and a smooth surface on the other. Sand the textured side around the edges to age it. Tear a remnant of Crumb Cake card to be sllightly smaller and sponge the edges.

Mount the layers suitably on top of one another and stamp an image. I used the ferris wheel image From Feelilng sentimental.

Mount all layers using ribbon as an accent and a brad if desired as the axle for the ferris wheel. Stamp a greeting and add to card. The inspiration for the above card was cased from our wonderful community of Stampin Up Demonstrators. B J Peters original can be found here
Until next time Happy Stamping!
