Core'dinations Hard Core Crop!

Hey Crafty Friends-

Welcome to the 2nd Hard Core Crop! We are bringing in the Holiday season with challenges designed to get you inspired to create for the Holidays. Please head over to the Core blog HERE for crop rules. And we have the Facebook HCC crop page HERE for you to chat and hang out with fellow Hard Core Croppers so make sure you head over there, too. You never know when challenges or giveaways will pop up over there!

For my HCC project I made a cute little Christmas gift bag from Core glitter cardstock! I love the color combo on this one.

The bag was cut from blue glitter Core'dinations cardstock on my Cricut. It cuts like a dream by the way. The trim on the bottom is red shimmer ric rac glued all the way around. Red checked ribbon and green twine make the cutest layered bow topped with a heart from the David Tutera Celebrate Cardmaking System. The embellishment packs are great for these special little projects. If you haven't checked it out yet click HERE to visit the website. There are great videos and how to's to give you plenty of inspiration. Or you can follow the David Tutera Celebrate Facebook page HERE for even more fun! The Holiday Greetings sticker is also from the David Tutera Celebrate line. I inked the edges with red ink to really make it stand out then popped it up on foam dots. The green pine needles behind the sticker are from a punch. I layered a couple for a pop of green. a few gems and white tissue paper stamped with red snowflakes finish it off!
