A Christmas Spectacular

Authentique Paper is teaming up Core'dinations this week to 
bring you tons of inspiration using Authentique Paper & Core'dinations products!

 I must say that I always enjoy working with Core'dinations' products!
Not only do they coordinate well with any Authentique collection, the quality and ability to sand, tear 
and distress makes it a top-notch cardstock to reach for.

 For my layout today, I've pulled two of the Core'dinations Neutral 6 X 6 sheets and trimmed 
them down to 4.25" X 5.5"...why this size?  I was thinking of cascading snowflakes embossed
 onto the cardstock and of course, my embossing folder just happened to be this size.  
Next, I cut matching pieces from the "Classic" Joyous paper and adhered them all onto a 
9.5" X 12" piece of black Core'dinations cardstock that was mounted onto a single
 sheet of 12 X 12 Confection paper.

 After some machine-stitching to the panels of paper, I'm ready to being layering!
I went with my trusty doily dies and cut out three different shapes from the black cardstock 
found in the Neutral 6 X 6 pack.  I added a smaller disc of patterned paper to the center of each 
(and I used the 6 X 6 paper bundle for this).  I determined placement of the doilies, 
along with my photos and set them in place.

Finally, the embellishments!  I added some pretty Petaloo poinsettias, gold buttons and a few
 punch-out pieces from the Joyous Collection

I really love the homespun feel of this design and how the juxtaposed panels of snowflakes truly give motion to the page.  If you decide to use a Core'dinations cardstock with a core, you could easily transform the look of your embossed design by lightly sanding over the raised areas!
