Caardvarks Blog Hop - Day 1

Welcome to the first ever Caardvarks Caard Hop sponsored by Core'dinations.
If you have just come from Ashley's gorgeous blog - nice to see you, hope you are having fun.

If not, click here to go to the start of the hop. Caardvarks will give all the instructions you need.

So here is my FIRST Core'dinations card of the hop!



Supplies: Core'dinations Whitewash Cardstock; Stamps - Hero Arts; Kraft Notecard - Hero Arts; Blue polka dot paper - Papertrey Ink; Cuttlebug embossing folder - Swiss Dots; twill - recycled Gap clothing label.

This Core'dinations Whitewash Collection is fantastic - so fun to work with! The colours underneath are so vibrant and fun, and the 12x12 pack has a wonderful selection of colours in.

I wanted to make a card that really showcased this gorgeous card so I kept the design fairly simple. I embossed the cardstock with my Cuttlebug Swiss Dots folder, then sanded the dots to reveal the core colour. Then, I just tore the bottom from the card to create the waves. So easy to make.

Here is the blog hop order:

Have fun, and keep hopping.
See you tomorrow - good luck!!!

P.S. keep your eyes peeled for giveaways over the 3 days... I might even be doing one :)
