Simple One-Layer Valentine with Cuttlebug & Core'dinations
I recently won 2 generous packs of Core'dinations papers (thanks again, Maggie!), which I've always been curious about! One pack includes Whitewash and Black Magic papers. The colors cores are either whitewashed or covered in black so that when you emboss, sand, tear or antique it, the color core shows beautifully through. I chose a whitewashed pink to emboss with my new Cuttlebug Flourished Frame folder, then lightly sanded the embossing. It gave such a soft, subtle look that I decided to keep it soft and simple, stamping my swirly heart and sentiment, and just sprinkling a few pearls for a little extra glam. So fun to play with new product!!!
