3/7/21 Rising Star at A Place To Start!
3/31/21 Special Mention Winner at Classic Design Challenge Blog!
Hi everyone! Happy Hump Day! I’m thrilled to be back on the CutCardStock blog today with an awesome DT inspiration project featuring beautiful Curious Metallic cardstock from my stash that happens to be on sale this month so be sure to get some! There are so many gorgeous colors! Affiliate links are used in this post at no cost to you. I really appreciate your support! I love shakers and I don’t make nearly enough of them so I created one for today’s project which is the first post of the new CutCardStock DT term. They are so much fun and every recipient I’ve ever given one to absolutely loved it!
I cut the card base from Royal Sundance Felt Natural 110# cardstock which makes an awesome sturdy card base. The front panel is cut from Royal Sundance Linen Ivory 80# cardstock. The front of the card features the Tonic Studios Small Cocktail Glass cut from Curious Metallic Chestnut 111# cardstock and the interior of the glass cut from Curious Metallic Pink Quartz 111# cardstock as well as a vertical strip adhered down the left side of the background panel. The shaker filler consists mainly of pink sequins which I thought resembled wine – I’m not a wine drinker so this is a total guess on my part! Bahahaha! There is a small pinch of white seed beads in there as well. The cocktail glass dies came in a bundle with several shaker elements so it was super easy to assemble. I also cut the sentiment from Curious Metallic Chestnut 111# cardstock and adhered it vertically down the left side on the pink quartz strip. I adhered three pink sequin ‘bubbles’ above the glass on the left side. The finishing touch was the addition of three ivory enamel dots on the pink quartz strip.
I cut the inside panel from Classic Crest Baronial Ivory 80# cardstock and embellished it with thin strips of the Curious Metallic Pink Quartz 111# cardstock, Curious Metallic Chestnut 111# cardstock and Royal Sundance Linen Ivory 80# cardstock, stamped the sentiment in pink ink and adhered the panel to the brown cardstock layer.
And one more peek… totally loving how this turned out! I can definitely see a few more of these in my future, lol!
