Hi everyone! Happy Hump Day! Today is my baby’s 34th birthday and his big sister will be 37 in January. I feel so old… where has the time gone?! I’m stoked to be back on the CutCardStock blog today with an awesome DT inspiration project featuring more of the Pop-Tone 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 set of ‘hello’ cards using what I call the phantom die cutting technique.
I’m still experimenting. I’ve used foam beneath the sentiment on past phantom die cutting projects, and this time I used four layers of cardstock which yielded an equally cool result. This technique is very easy – you simply die cut the sentiment into the background, adhere the positive pieces back into the negative spaces, then adhere several additional sentiment layers on top of the original sentiment on the background. I cut the four card bases from Classic Crest Solar White 110# cardstock. The front panels and die cut sentiments were cut from Pop-Tone Grape Jelly cardstock, Pop-Tone Orange Fizz cardstock, Pop-Tone Razzleberry cardstock and Pop-Tone Wild Cherry cardstock. The only other embellishment used was Crystal Drops. Such a simple monochromatic design!
The inside panels were cut from Classic Crest Solar White 80# cardstock, embellished with a strip of cardstock and floral Washi Tape, and a sentiment stamped in black ink. All four inside panels are the same.
One more look at all four cards… sure am loving how these turned out! I think I will recreate this project using the same Pop-Tone colors with black foam beneath the sentiment for some interest. I think that would look really cool! ;)
