Core'dination's 2nd Hard Core Crop!!!!

Welcome to the 2nd Hard Core Crop! We are bringing in the Holiday season with challenges designed
to get you inspired to create for the Holidays. Please head over to the Coreblog for crop rules. And we have the Facebook crop page  for you to chat and hang out with fellow Hard Core Croppers so make sure
you head over there, too. You never know when challenges or giveaways will pop
up over there!  
Today I have created for you three cards using the David Tutera line as well as some fabulous May Arts Ribbon.  I used the ribbon on one of the cards as well as a layout. I used some of the Step 3 products that David Tutera line has creates to make these holiday cards.  You can see the pictures showing how to put them together.  I also created a layout using some of Tim Holtz fabulous Seasonal Impressions Pack and some of the awesome May Arts ribbon.  I'm going to select a random winner. I will be giving away these fabulous prizes:
  From May Arts:

 ALSO!!!               TWO packs of our Cut & Emboss series.

First off my cards:  This first card uses the Size A card - I then cut down a Step 2 B/C to fit the card and added the Step 3 embellishments that I chose.  On this card I added some of my favorite May Arts ribbon - love the big pretty bows this ribbon creates.

 Next I have another card this time using the Size B/C Step 1 card base and envelope. I layered a Step 2 B/C layer and then added my choice of Step 3 embellishments.  I ran them through my Xyron to add adhesive.


 For my last card I used some of the gold Step 1 B/C card base and envelopes.  I added another Gold Step 2 layer.



 Next I have a layout for you using the Tim Holtz Seasonal Impressions which I ADORE!!! There are several different colored/layered sheets for each holiday and they just make the page fall together.  I threaded my May Arts ribbon through my page and tied it in a bow.  I also used some more of it on my little tag.

  So create a card or layout using Core'dination's and ribbon and link it up here for you chance to win the prizes I have shown!
