Core'dinations and Lawn Fawn

This week it is all about Core'dinations and Lawn Fawn !!!

For this team up I was given the cutest little set of dies to work with.  They coordinate with the 'Summertime Charm' Stamp Set and are super sweet.

I started with a David Tutera 5 1/2 x 5 1/2" white card base and ran it through my Big Shot using a dotted embossing folder.  Because my folder was 5 x 7" and my card was slightly wider, I made sure to space it evenly down the center of the front so that I had to plain 'stripes' on the edges – thought it looked cute …..

I started with the jar and 'cut' it from a piece of Core'dinations 'Chocolate Box' with a lime green core.  I ran the jar die cut piece through my Big Shot using a basket weave embossing folder by Darice (love this one) …… I love the green coming through after it was lightly sanded.

The fun part about these die sets is all the smaller dies that are included in each set.  They come attached but I snipped my smaller pieces apart so I could use the heart and the small flower on my card.

I cut a small heart using a piece of red from the Tim Holtz Kraft Core Nostalgic Coolection, lightly sanded the edges and raised in in the bottom corner of my jar.

I punched a few flowers and leaves from more of the Nostalgic Collection and arranged them 'coming out of' the jar :))  I embossed the leaves and gently sanded the top to show the kraft core …. I used the small flower die to create 'centers' for my flowers and embossed them using the same dotted folder that I used on the base of the card !!

Once I had layered all my pieces onto the card I finished it off using a sentiment sticker from the David Tutera Celebrate Card Making System (LOVE these stickers) …..
