Hi everyone! I hope you’re having a fabulous week and not working too hard, regardless of where you’re working! 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 cardstock from our gorgeous line of Curious Metallic that’s on sale this month! Be sure to stock up – this is one of my many favorites! I created a pretty thinking of you card with Curious Metallic White Gold cardstock and Curious Metallic Gold Leaf cardstock along with an alcohol pearls background beneath the Paper Rose Gum Leaf Border Die.
I started by creating a vellum background panel. I dropped Ranger Elixir and Radiant Alcohol Pearls onto the vellum and pounced a Ranger Alcohol Ink Applicator Tool with Felt to distribute the alcohol pearls, then trimmed the panel. I cut a standard A2 size top-folding card base from Curious Metallic White Gold cardstock along with a border using the Paper Rose Gum Leaf Border Die. The die was actually created to cut directly into the card base so I tweaked it a bit and created a separate panel that I could adhere my alcohol pearl background beneath and then adhere both to the front of the card base. Using my Spellbinders Glimmer Hot Foil System, Spellbinders Glimmer Gold Foil, and Spellbinders Glimmer Hot Foil Mini Christmas Sentiment Strips Plate and Die Set, I created a sentiment strip on Neenah Classic Baronial Ivory cardstock which I trimmed and adhered across the bottom of the card front on a double-sided adhesive foam strip. I added several gemstones from the Trinity Stamps Andradite Sparkle Embellishment Mix using the Trinity Pick Up Stick.
I cut the inside panel from Neenah Classic Baronial Ivory cardstock and embellished it with narrow strips of Curious Metallic White Gold cardstock and Curious Metallic Gold Leaf cardstock. I stamped the sentiment from the Waffle Flower Essential Sentiments stamp set in Memento Cottage Ivy ink and layered the panel on gold leaf cardstock.
And one more peek… this cardstock is SO pretty and makes card designs absolutely pop! Love how this turned out!
