Today's project by Scor-pal Designer Steph Ackerman:
Good morning, Steph here and we had the pleasure of working with Core-dinations cardstock this month. I love the rich colors of this cardstock and the many ways you can use it.
I chose to create a combination card/envelope.
The Kraft-Core cardstock is a combination of rich colors on one side and kraft on the other. I used a sheet of the red Kraft-Core for the base of my card, cutting 2 pieces 5 1/2" x 11". I then scored each piece at the 5 1/2" center point.
Lining up the center of each piece, I cut them on a diagonal to create the flaps.
Adhere the 2 pieces together on the square panel so that a card is formed.
Using the diagonal cuts, flip them over to use the Kraft side. Trim them to fit the flaps and then emboss with an embossing folder. Since I was going with a winter woodland scene, I chose to emboss with a wood embossing folder. Lightly ink the edges before adhering to the card.
Add a strip of red cardstock across the center of the card. Print a digital image from Cornish Heritage Farms and color with Copic Markers. Using Spellbinders circle dies, die cut and lightly ink the image with Ranger Antique Linen Distress Ink. Cut a larger Spellbinders circle using the green cardstock from the Graphic 45 collection.
Cut a panel of green to fit inside the envelope and adhere a punched tab to the right corner. Using the Scor-pal, score 3 lines each 1/4" apart along the bottom edge of the card to create a decorative finish.
I stamped a sentiment which was then die cut with Spellbinders circle dies in 2 sizes. After inking the edges, I placed it on the panel slightly above the final score line. I did not want it to show above the stamped image on the front.
And the finished envelope and card.
My next project is a small gift package using papers from the Graphic 45 collection. This cute package could be used for all kinds of small gifts for the holidays.
Cut red cardstock 4" x 4" and score around every 1". Cut in on 4 sides and fold to create the bottom of the package. Then add Scor-Tape around the entire piece as this will hold the package together.
Cut green cardstock 5 1/2" x 9" and mark the center of the bottom. Using a Sizzix Embossing Folder, emboss the tree onto the cardstock (being sure to emboss at the center point), then sand to remove some of the color.
Gently fold this piece around the box. At the back, where the paper overlaps, add some additional Scor-Tape and gently adhere the pieces together.
Cut a 1" x 9" strip of red cardstock and score in half. Once folded, add Scor-Tape to both sides and gently fold around the top of the box to finish off the top edge.
Punch 2 holes in the top and add twine to tie it shut.
Decorate the tree with assortment embellishments. I used Dew Drops from the Robin's Nest to decorate my tree.
Thanks for stopping by today.
Our final project comes from Lisa Andrews:
Lisa A. here, today I made a simply and easy gift card holder and vintage looking snowman gift tags for your last minute gifts. These would be great for teacher gifts, secret santa gifts or for anyone on your gift lists! I also made a quick card.
Core'dinations Vintage card stock
white and sparkly red card stock
various punches and embossing folders
Let's start with the gift card holder. I saw this idea for a gift card holder at a scrapbook store here in town and went home to make one of my own right away!
Start with a piece of 5 1/2" x 6 3/4" Core'dinations vintage red, score at 1 1/2" on each side.
Assemble box with Scor-Tape
For the top start with a white piece of card stock 5 3/4" x 4 1/2", punch around the edges, you really don't need to be perfect with this since you will fold the sides in to create the top of the box. Score at 1" on all sides. Using a punch, punch a snowflake on the left bottom of the lid. Assemble the top using Scor-Tape.
Cut a piece of sparkly card stock 2 1/2" x 3 3/4" and adhere to the underside of the snowflake.
Next, we are going to make the snowman rosette. Using a 1 1/2" x 12" piece of vintage Core-dinations card stock, score every 1/2", turn the card stock over and score again starting at 1/4" and every 1/2" from there. Fold the card stock into an accordion using the indented score mark as your mountains and raised up score mark as your valley. Attach the end of the card stock together with Scor-Tape.
Using a 1 3/4" punch, punch a circle and hot glue it to the back of the rosette.
For the snowman's hat, use a 1 3/4" x 6" piece of vintage black Core'dinations card stock and score every 1/2", turn the card stock over and score again starting at 1/4" and every 1/2" from there. Fold the card stock into an accordian, using the indented score mark as your mountains and raised up score mark as your valley.
Gather the bottom of the card stock together and hot glue to the snowman's head.
Using a piece of vintage black Core'dinations card stock, cut a piece 3/4" wide for the brim of the hat. Don't forget to sand all of the edges with sandpaper to give it that vintage look. Cut a carrot nose out of vintage orange Core'dinations card stock and adhere it to your snowman. Add black jewels for eyes. Repeat three times for three tags. Don't forget to stamp a message on the back!
Now we are going to make a little gift box for your gift tags. Starting with an 8 1/2" x 6 1/2" piece of vintage green Core'dinations card stock, score 2 1/2" on all sides. Cut 1 3/4" from the corners as shown below.
Punch a snowflake on the front of the box.
Sand your edges and adhere box together with Scor-Tape.
Thanks for joining us this week. I hope you've gotten a lot of inspiration to make to homemade this year!
