Welcome to the very FIRST Hard Core Crop! We are so excited that you joined us.
Each Design Team Member, plus a few guest designers, will be hosting challenges
on their blogs and giving away a pack of Core’dinations Cardstock. For full Crop
details please see the Core Blog here! Interested in a Guest Designer spot?! Learn how you could design for Core for the next three months here!
My challenge to you is to create your own handmade embellishment using our fabulous Core papers. On this layout, I created the *sweet* cupcake to support the theme of my photos.
Run a piece of Vintage cardstock through a paper crimper to achieve a corrugated texture. Don't have a paper crimper? Score and fold the paper in a similar fashion to mimic the look of a cupcake liner.
Trim the paper to 2" wide. Fold the paper several times to resemble the bottom of a cupcake. Use a bit of adhesive on a scrap of cardstock and adhere to the back of the paper to secure the folds in place.
On the back side of a piece of Core Impressions cardstock, draw a cloud type shape that is the length of the upper edge of the cupcake liner. Trim the shape, sand, and adhere to the bottom of the cupcake.
I then mounted the assembled cupcake onto an additional piece of Vintage Collection cardstock to both coordinate with the rest of the color scheme of the layout and also to give a little more definition.
The possibilities are endless when it comes to creating your own accent tiems... I can't wait to see what you come up with!!
Now, up for grabs to the winner of this challencg is a pack of my FAVORITE paper to work with, the Vintage Collection! Look around for inspiration and whip up some embellishments for your chance to win! Banners, die cuts, flowers, journaling tags... the possibilities are endless!
