As you'll have seen on Ideal World last week, Crafter's Companion are very excited to be the UK distributors of the fabulous Core'dinations
cardstock! Many of you may have heard of this fantastic brand before, but in case you haven't, we've put together a guide for you including what you can do with the card, and the different packs we have available...
To give you an idea of how to use Core'dinations cardstock, watch the video below:
Core’dinations ColourCore Cardstock has a “core” colour which “core’dinates” with the surface colour. Each sheet has a small border running along the bottom and labelled “core colour” this shows you what the interior colour of the card is. You can choose to keep that colour hidden or add your own creative touch by sanding, tearing or embossing.
• A sandable cardstock that has a “core’dinating” core color instead of a white core. This allows you to great beautiful effects when using embossing folders and then sanding to reveal the “core colour”
• Heavy weight, 240gsm, premium quality cardstock, acid and lignin free. This card stock is the perfect weight to make your base cards, and then use all of the other unique and craftable features associated with this card to decorate and create stunning craft projects.
• Sand, tear or antique it to reveal the beautiful core colors and add your own creative touch. Because the core of the card is coloured, it looks really effective when tearing to reveal the inside for lovely borders and frames on your craft projects. You can also “scrunch up” this card, sand, and then iron flat, for beautiful antique effects.
• Canvas texture on one side and smooth on the other. You have choices on the finish too.
Core Essentials The colour range in this cardstock makes it perfect for all of your crafting needs, such as beautiful tonal matting and layering, because of the unique way colours have been put together in families, each colour family has 4 Core Essentials ranging from light to dark. The colours range from vibrant to natural, so you are sure to find the perfect colour in our Core Essentials Collection. Use this cardstock as your everyday essential. Or you can also choose to add your own creative touch… sand it, tear it, emboss it and so much more.
Super Assortments Are definitely the best option in terms of value for money, working out at just 37p per sheet! You get 2 sheets each of forty different colours!
