A Fall Birthday card using Stampin' Up!'s Core'dinations cardstock, Sanding System and the Big Shot

Wow, I can't believe it's been sooooo long since I've posted. The end of summer was so busy with my little lasses and traveling that I was just enjoying my time with them before they all went off to school.  But that doesn't mean I wasn't stamping....I just wasn't blogging. Now that they are all at school, I've been enjoying my time in my craft room and here I am to post a project from the other day.

Yesterday was my darling hubby's birthday and he had to go on a business trip. I only got to see him for a few moments that morning but I had to make sure he had a card before he left on his trip. So, I made this card and had the girls sign it for him before they went to bed just so it was ready and waiting for him in the morning.

Stampin' Up!'s Tweet Leaves and Core'dination card stock make a fantastic birthday card
So, what do you think? I started with a Stampin' Up! crumb cake base and a layer of the new Core'dinations card stock in Early Espresso. I ran that through the big shot using the new Woodgrain textured embossing folder. I sanded with the Stampin' Sanding Block and was completlely blown away by the awesome Core'dinations Dust Buddy as it picked up every piece of dust and debris I made using the sanding system. I then wrapped a piece of Pool Party Seam Binding around that layer. I went back to my beloved Big Shot and cut out the largest leaf using the Autumn Accents Bigz Die. I markered the Tweet Leaves stamp and put my image directly on the leaf that I cut out and then I adhered it to the card layer with Stampin' Dimensionals. I finished up the card with a sentiment from Teeny Tiny Wishes cut out and layered with the Word Window Punch and the Modern Label Punch.

My hubby loved the card. What about you? Feel free to leave me some love in the comment section and then have a fantastic day.
