Hi everyone! Hope you’re having a good week – it’s just about over! I’m super stoked to be back on the CutCardStock blog today with an awesome DT inspiration project featuring more of the 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 pretty friendship card. I’m really loving the silver with the pop of black!
I created a standard sized A2 top fold card base from Classic Crest Solar White cardstock. I cut a slightly smaller background panel from Pop-Tone Black Licorice cardstock, rounded all four corners and adhered it to the card base. I added some black plaid ribbon tied with metallic silver string to a tag from my stash to use as the focal element for the front of the card. I cut some random lengths of CCS Silver Glitter cardstock and adhered them to the background. I popped the tag up on black foam and adhered it to the card. I finished the design with several smoke-colored gemstones.
For the inside, I adhered a strip of black and white gingham paper to match the gingham on the tag, along with narrow strips cut from the Black Licorice and Silver Glitter cardstock. Then I stamped the sentiment in black ink.
And one more peek… loving how this turned out! I really love the CCS Glitter cardstock! OMGoodness! ;)
