TGIF!  Today I am sharing a layout I made for Core'dinations. It boasts several different techniques to use on the awesome color core cardstock. You can find Core'dinations Technique Videos here.

This beautiful girl is forever letting me take her photo. On this particular day Lily came outside ready to a very awesome outfit with a pop of red lipstick.  She looked so fresh I just had to grab the camera. The colors of Core'dinations Cardstock I chose were simply to compliment Lily's blue eyes and smashing red lips.  

Besides basic embossing and sanding of cardstock, I crimped the paper with my Fiskars Crimper to create the scalloped border.

In both the adjective flags above and the titlework below I ran my Core'dinations Cardstock thru my Dymo to create embossed words.  Sand them down and dust them off to really make them pop!

One of my favorite techniques to use when creating with Core'dinations Cardstock is distressing it.  I think it is listed as "antique it" in the videos. Just crinkle, sand and dust your cardstock for a fun, aged look. 

I hope you enjoyed my layout today. Have a great weekend!
