Authentique Paper is teaming up Core'dinations this week to bring you tons of inspiration using Authentique Paper & Core'dinations products!
After you check out the projects here on the Authentique Paper blog, be sure to hop on over to the Core'dinations blog to find out what the talented members of their Design Teams have in store for you today!
Not only do they coordinate well with any Authentique collection, the quality and ability to sand, tear and distress makes it a top-notch cardstock to reach for.
For my layout today, I've pulled two of the Core'dinations Neutral 6 X 6 sheets and trimmed them down to 4.25" X 5.5"...why this size? I was thinking of cascading snowflakes embossed onto the cardstock and of course, my embossing folder just happened to be this size. Next, I cut matching pieces from the "Classic" Joyous paper and adhered them all onto a 9.5" X 12" piece of black Core'dinations cardstock that was mounted onto a single sheet of 12 X 12 Confection paper.
After some machine-stitching to the panels of paper, I'm ready to being layering!
I went with my trusty doily dies and cut out three different shapes from the black cardstock found in the Neutral 6 X 6 pack. I added a smaller disc of patterned paper to the center of each (and I used the 6 X 6 paper bundle for this). I determined placement of the doilies, along with my photos and set them in place.
Finally, the embellishments! I added some pretty Petaloo poinsettias, gold buttons and a few punch-out pieces from the Joyous Collection.
I really love the homespun feel of this design and how the juxtaposed panels of snowflakes truly give motion to the page. If you decide to use a Core'dinations cardstock with a core, you could easily transform the look of your embossed design by lightly sanding over the raised areas!
