More Core'dinations for Caardvarks

For the Caardvarks challenge to make a card using Core'dinations and a monochromatic design. I chose a color called In the Pink, and dry embossed the background, adding a layer of stamped lace that was heat embossed with white embossing powder, and a third layer also heat embossed with the sentiment.



Here is a close-up of the flower I made.  I first embossed the Swiss Dots onto the core'dinations, sanding the dots and the edges, then used my cuttlebug to diecut 6 scalloped circles, and secured them together, adding a pearl cabochon to the center.




Supplies: "In the Pink" Core'dinations and white cardstock, Cuttlebug "Victoria" and "Swiss Dots" embossing folders, Hero Arts K5329 Lace Frame and CL380 Truly Appreciated, VersaMark ink and white embossing powder, Nestabilities scalloped circles, pearl cabochon
