An Inspiring Duo...Graphic 45 and Coordinations Blog Hop

Hello and Welcome on this glorious Tuesday!

Now onto the hop! 
For my project w/ Coordinations and Graphic 45 I really wanted to capture that vintage feel that is so great when using Coordinations papers. 
With just a little sanding, crumpling and tearing this amazing Core paper can turn any project from clean and fresh to old and grungy in seconds!! 
A must have for any scrapper, especially on all those handmade Christmas cards and gifts..


This Christmas card is a fun mix of The Magic of Oz, Christmas Emporium and layers of luscious Coordinations Core Cardstock.  Finished Card measures 4 1/4” x 7 1/2”, also created with  Graphic 45's envelope tag on the front for a little gift card hideaway!!
