Core'dinations: Holiday Hard Core Cropper

Welcome to the 2nd Hard Core Crop!

We are celebrating the Holiday season with challenges designed to get you inspired to create for the Holidays. Visit the Core Blog for crop rules. We are at the Hard Core Cropper (HCC) Crop FaceBook Page where you can chat and hang out with fellow HCCers - join us! You never know when challenges or giveaways will pop up...just sayin'!

Today I have created a Snowflake Holiday Greetings Card and matching Snowflake Gift Bag ensemble!

SnowFlake Card and Gift Bag Ensemble by Margie Higuchi
Supplies - Card Base, Tags and Embellishments: Core'dinations ColorCore Cardstock (David Tutera Celebrate Cardmaking System); Dies: Spellbinders Paper Arts (S4-340 Create-A-Flake Three); Adhesive: ScraPerfect (the Best Glue Ever); Other: Red Gift Bag

For tutorials on this Snowflake Holiday Greetings Card and Snowflake Gift Bag ensemble, visit David Tutera Celebrate Cardmaking System - How To section (under Holiday). You will see this and many other projects using this system.We hope you are inspired by them as much as we love to share them with you!

CHALLENGE: Embellish a gift bag with dies or punches using Core'dinations ColorCore Cardstock® products!

I used Core'dinations/David Tutera Celebrate Cardmaking System products like their paper backing from A7 Lace Linked Assortment (DT-GX-7200-06) and cut out the snowflakes to place on my gift bag. Then I added the lace part of the same set and sentiments from Black/White Sentiments Stickers (DT-GX-7300-39). Just like that it's ready to go!
