Spellbinders and Core’dinations Blog Swap!

Today is my day for the Spellbinders™ and Core’dinations® Blog Swap!

My card today is cute and easy –

So easy, in fact, that you can make this in one cut/emboss pass using the Spellbinders Grand Calibur® machine!

I took a piece of Core’dinations Black Magic Cardstock and cut the front edge with a Spellbinders Edgeabilities® Classic Petal Edger die and one of the Decorative Inserts from the same set.  At the same time, I cut the Fancy Tags Three  and Labels Twenty dies.  In the embossing step I added a Classic Rectangles LG die to just emboss the frame onto the front of the card, and the rest of the dies embossed in that pass as well.

I stamped ‘Take Time” from the Gina K. Designs The Best Things in Life set on the Fancy Tag, with Clearsnap Colorbox Black Pigment ink. then sanded the embossed areas of all the die cuts, and also around the edges, including the card base.  I love how the colored core shows through!  And Core’dinations cardstock is nice and sturdy, it’s great for die cutting and card making.

A little bit of adhesive from SCRAPBOOK ADHESIVES BY 3L, 3D Foam Squares, and the card is done!

Don’t you love how the Spellbinders Edgeabilities dies make the fabulous edge!!
