Hi everyone! Happy Monday – I hope you had a great weekend! I’m super stoked to be on the CutCardStock blog today with my first DT inspiration project for this amazing company! First order of business is to let you know that this post contains affiliate links. We were provided a Designer’s Pack that was chock full of all kinds of awesome cardstock and other goodies, so I created a cheerful ‘feel better soon’ card featuring some of the Curious Metallics cardstock. So pretty!
I created an A2-sized card base from Classic Crest Solar White 110# cardstock and rounded the right bottom corner. I cut a slightly smaller panel from green and white gingham patterned paper and adhered it to the card base. I stamped the sentiment in black ink toward the top, leaving room for the flower arrangement.
I stamped the flower layers on Curious Metallic Pale Aloe 111# cardstock, Curious Metallic Pink Quartz 111# cardstock and Curious Metallic White-Silver 111# cardstock, and the leaves on Basis Green 80# cardstock, and then cut all the pieces with coordinating dies. I adhered the flower layers and leaves with Scor-Tape 1/4″ and added an iridescent gemstone to the center of each one. I arranged them on the bottom of the card front, adhering with Double-sided foam adhesive strips cut in small pieces.
I embellished the inside with leftover strips of the gingham paper and the Pink Quartz cardstock, and then stamped the sentiment in black ink.
And one more peek… loving how this card turned out! This cardstock is just amazing and I couldn’t be more proud to be on this new design team! ;)
