All this week Core'dinations is hopping with Tombow so get ready to see some fabulous projects and enjoy the chance to WIN a fabulous prize pack too !!
It's no secret that I am in LOVE with my Silhouette .... and Core'dinations cuts like a dream in this machine so I was able to use this fantastic, detailed cut file to create a couple of Christmas cards AND use my fave Tombow glue pen too adhere them !!
For this first card I started with a 5 1/2 x 5 1/2" kraft card base and added a 5 1/4" piece of white spotted cardstock. I used THIS cut file for the Santa head and cut it using 'Nightfall' from the Core Essentials collection . This file is perfect to be able to use the cut AND the negative image !!
I thought Santa need a little sparkle so I adhered this on top of 'Red Flash' from the Glitter Silk collection - LOVE this cardstock !!
I wanted a bold sentiment for this card so using the same black 'nightfall' cardstock, I cut THIS file using my Silhouette. It cut beautifully and to just the right size for this card.
A couple of pieces of twine and this card is ready to put in the mail ....
For the card using the original cut I was able to really layer this as it is just an outline of Santa. To start I used another 5 1/2 x 5 1/2" card base from the David Tutera Celebrate collection and layered on a piece of black Jillian Dot Spotted and then a piece of Scarlet Tillie Dot Spotted cardstock.
Using a snowflake embossing folder, I ran a piece of Pearl Gemstones cardstock through my embossing machine and the rounded the corners.
The Tombow Glue Pen became a VERY important adhesive in my kit a LONG time ago. It is exactly what you need to adhere these tiny little pieces with. It writes on like using a pen and the adhesive is super strong .... for my larger pieces I am addicted to the Tombow Mono Multi liquid glue - LOVE this one and has been a fave of mine for many years. Definitely a staple for anyone that truly wants their product to stay where they put it ;))
I wrapped some twine on this one as well and added the same sentiment to finish it off ..... They look so cute side by side - a shame to mail them (but I will ;))
Thanks so much for stopping by ..... now make sure to head over to the other girls' blogs today AND ALL WEEK LONG !!!
