Just Because

Howdy, peeps! A real big Happy Tuesday shout-out to you all! I hope you had a great weekend and your week is going great so far! Affiliate links are used in this post at no cost to you – I really appreciate your support! I’m stoked to be back on the CutCardStock blog today with an awesome DT inspiration project featuring more of our Classic Crest and Classic Linen cardstock that’s on sale this month so be sure to stock up! I used both Neenah Classic Linen 100# Solar White cardstock and Neenah Classic Linen 80# Solar White cardstock along with Neenah Classic Crest Solar White 80# cardstock which I paired with our Pop-Tone Tangy Orange cardstock to create this pretty ‘just because’ card.

NOTE: Several weeks ago we were notified by CutCardStock that there are supply chain issues with the Classic Crest and Linen cardstock so I wanted you all to be aware. Some other really good options that I can personally vouch for, which I have in my stash also, are 110# Basis White, 80# Basis White, 65# Pop-Tone Sweet Tooth and Royal Sundance 80# Fiber White.

I took care of the florals first. Using the Altenew Fabulous Florals stamp set along with Hero Arts Dandelion and Red Royal inks, and Memento Tangelo, Morocco, Lady Bug, Rhubarb Stalk, Bamboo Leaves, Olive Grove and Northern Pine inks, I stamped the florals and leaves on Neenah Classic Crest 80# Solar White cardstock and cut them with the coordinating Altenew Fabulous Florals die set.

I cut a standard A2 size top-folding card base from Neenah Classic Linen 100# Solar White cardstock along with a layering panel from Neenah Classic Linen 80# Solar White cardstock and three die cuts using the Waffle Flower Triple Line Diamond Panel die which I cut from Neenah Classic Crest 80# Solar White cardstock and layered together for dimension. I adhered the diamond die cut panel to the linen layering panel, and then adhered the floral images to the panel with Darice Double-Sided Adhesive Foam Circles and added an Eyelet Outlet Butterfly Brad. I stamped the sentiment from the Trinity Stamps A Sentiment For (Almost) Everything stamp set in Catherine Pooler Mandarin Spice ink on a scrap piece of Crest cardstock, trimmed it and layered it on a scrap piece of Pop-Tone Tangy Orange cardstock and trimmed it again. I adhered the sentiment to the diamond die cut panel and then adhered the panel to the card base.

I cut the inside panel from Neenah Classic Crest 80# Solar White cardstock and embellished it with a strip of Pop-Tone Tangy Orange cardstock across the top. I stamped the sentiment from the Altenew Fabulous Florals stamp set in the Mandarin Spice ink and layered it on the orange cardstock.

And one more look… I’m totally smitten with this card! I LOVE IT when a card turns out exactly like I pictured it in my head!

I'm definitely what one could consider a crafting junkie! I love making cards, 3-D projects (especially paper shoes, mini albums and gift bags), mixed media projects, altering items, as well as occasional beading and making jewelry! Fortunately, hubby is very supportive! Life is good! :D
