Core’dinations Design Team Call

Core'dinations is having their annual design team call. I really love working with their cardstock- and I especially love the new "Chalk Core" line. It is a smooth-textured cardstock with a black surface; and a white or a colored core. When the cardstock is embossed, sanded or torn the core color of the cardstock comes through and gives it the look of a chalkboard.
If you click on the layout, you can see the detail of the cardstock better. I used a chalk pencil to create the swirls on the layout.
The colored core Chalk Core pairs well with the previously released lines of Core'dinations. I added some of the Whitewash collection to this altered frame.
Here is a look at the frame closer:
And a couple of close-ups of the flowers.
Chalk Core is especially perfect for Halloween, which is coming soon. Please shoot me.
Here are some really quick and easy treat holders that I whipped up using Chalk Core and Core Essentials from Core'dinations.
You can see the wonderful texture of the Core Essentials here:
And you can see that when Core Essentials cardstock is sanded, the cardstock reveals a lighter color core that really adds dimension to projects.
So there it is. My design team entry, and a quick look at the new cardstock line "Chalk Core" from Core'dinations.
