Today I have a layout to share with you using the gorgeous Colour Core Cardstock from Core'dinations.
I have used the beautiful soft pastel colours in the Pastels Cardstock Pack. With this versatile cardstock and some lovely embossing folders, you don't need a heap of patterned papers. Here's how this layout came about.
I first chose a piece of patterned paper for my background. I then placed a piece of white cardstock in the middle on top.
This is the fun part! Grab some core cardstock in 3 different colours and run them through your embossing machine with your choice of embossing folders.
Using the piercing tool from the Handheld Essentials kit, I then pierced holes all the way round the outside and then hand stitched each piece. You can also do this on your sewing machine but for me I like the finish of hand stitching and I can use 2 threads too just for a bit of extra dimension.
I then die cut out the tag at the bottom from the Victorian Squares Nesting Dies. This is tucked under the photo with a couple of other little banners I have cut out from the off cuts of the original 3 embossed pieces.
The hearts were cut from the Hearts Nesting Dies and also run through my Cuttlebug and sanded back. There were then tucked under the blossoms with the Alcyone doily die.
To make the leaves I have used the Turkish Delight embossing folder. This folder is a fantastic one to have in your collection! Not only is it useful for backgrounds, but the leaves on this folder are awesome to cut out. I have again used the core cardstock and then sanded them back.
I have also slipped in a Core'dinations tag for some journaling later.
Lastly my favourite dies, the Tranquility flourish die, tucked under some of the blossoms and the Magical Butterfly die.
Here is a couple of close ups of the embellishments clusters.
