Caard Hop: Day 3


Hello, hoppers! Thanks for joining us for our final blog hop day with Caardvarks & Core'dinations! Participants will be entered in a drawing to win a Super Assortment Package of Core'dinations product (retail value $68.00). One prize package will be given away for each day!

I'll also be drawing a name to win this fun RAK of My Mind's Eye and Core'dinations goodies!


Here's my final card featuring Core'dinations White Wash. I chose a sheet of aqua cardstock with their subtle White Wash finish over the top. I embossed with a snowflake Cuttlebug embossing folder and sanded away the white from the raised areas. (Seeing a theme here?) Embossing folders are my very favorite way to play with Core'dinations in addition to regular sanding and tearing. They have a variety of collections - be sure to check them out! This card also uses the new 'Tis the Season line from Bo Bunny.

If you have landed on my blog from somewhere else, go back to the beginning and read up on all the rules and details. Here's the list of 'Varks DT and where you are in the hop:


You are here --> Jolene


Be sure to check out Daniela Dobson and her fantastic Core'dinations project to finish up our blog hop. Good luck in the prize draw!

But wait...there's more! Recently I made a demo video about Core'dinations cardstock for Scrapbook Express online store. Take a look!



And here's that card I mentioned at the end of the video. It also uses White Wash cardstock from Core'dinations.


All Core'dinations cardstock is 20% off at Scrapbook Express through August. Go check it out!

Just don't forget to visit Daniela's blog to finish up the Caardvarks blog hop. Thanks for hoppin'!
