Simple Cards with Embossing and Vellum


A few days ago, I had some cards using Core'dinations Core Basics line on the blog. It feels so good getting back into the crafting groove. The Vellum and  110 lb Smooth White cardstock are great for stamping.  And even though the Kraft and Black cardstocks are not sandable, they still look great embossed, scored and punched!
