5/1/20 Winner at Paperbabe Stamps!
Hi everyone! Happy Tuesday! I’m super stoked to be back on the CutCardStock blog today with an awesome DT inspiration project featuring glitter cardstock that was included in our Designer’s Pack! First order of business is to let you know that this post contains affiliate links. I created a glitzy gold-infused birthday card – and I’m in love with the effect it has on these gorgeous colors!
I created a standard A2 size top fold card base from Classic Crest Solar White cardstock and rounded the bottom right corner. I have to tell you that this is some of the best cardstock on the market to make card bases from. I cut a background layer from Pop-Tone Wild Cherry cardstock and adhered diagonal strips cut from CCS Gold Glitter cardstock alternating with slightly wider strips cut from Pop-Tone Orange Fizz cardstock, Pop-Tone Razzleberry cardstock and the Wild Cherry cardstock. I added more narrow glitter strips diagonally across each of the colored strips. I hadn’t originally planned to do this, but so glad the idea crossed my mind because I love the effect! For the sentiment piece, I die cut a double-stitched oval from the Wild Cherry cardstock which I layered on another oval die cut from the Classic Crest. I stamped the sentiment in Versamark and heat embossed it in gold.
I embellished the inside with strips of the colored and glitter cardstock used on the front, and stamped the sentiment in red ink.
And here’s one more look… so totally smitten with how this turned out!
