Making the Most of Core'dinations...NSD Tutorial for 3SB

All week at 3 Scrappy Boys  the DT is posting challenges, tutorials and step-by-steps to celebrate National Scrapbook Day.  We'll also be bidding farewell to DT members from this past term and welcoming the new ones.  I hope you'll stop by and check out all the fun!

Take a look at my quick tutorial and challenge:

The kits at 3 Scrappy Boys often have Core'dinations cardstock in...
do you know how to make the most of it? 
While it's great to use as plain old cardstock,
I'm going to show you how to do more with your Core!

Since some of the details from the video can't be seen well, here are the close ups of the projects:
Close up of card front (embossed and sanded)
Layout using Kraft Core'dinations (embossed/sanded)

Putting it all together
Close up of 'putting it all together' (letters and journaling block, embossed/sanded; background, border done using bone folder and trimmer and then sanded)
I found this in my stash. 
Letters and journaling block, embossed/sanded; the border was embossed with a die and then sanded.
So, now that you know how to change up your Core'dinations cardstock, I want you to create a layout doing so.  Make sure to post it in our Gallery and label it with Christy's Core Challenge.
Also, don't forget to check out my Sketch Challenge from last week and take part in it.
I hope that you enjoy all of our challenges this week!  Remember, there are lots of prizes up for grabs!
Happy Scrappin'!
