Caardvarks & Core'dinations bloghop Day 2/3

Welcome to day 2 of our 3-day bloghop sponsored by Core-dinations!!


Core'dinations cardstock is SO PERFECT for creating the shabby chic look I think!! It can be as subtle or bold as you want. Here, I embossed it and sanded the surface to reveal the paisley pattern - then I simple tore off the top to reveal more blue core underneath. It is so pretty in person!
