Metallic & Suede Fringe Earrings

Hey, everybody! Happy Friday! What you got goin’ on this weekend… anything fun?! Lol, you know where I’ll be (wink-wink)! 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 the Curious Metallic cardstock on sale this month! Have you ever even considered making earrings out of cardstock?! I created another couple pairs of fringe earrings – one pair is made entirely from Curious Metallic cardstock and embellished with tiny clear gemstones, and the other pair has Curious Metallic cardstock elements but is made primarily from craft leather and embellished with Nuvo Bottle Green Crystal Drops. These were so much fun!

This first pair is made entirely of cardstock. I die cut the pieces for each earring from Curious Metallic White Silver, Curious Metallic Violette and Curious Metallic Night. I assembled them with Bearly Art precision craft glue, affixed the earring wires and rings, and then adhered tiny clear gemstones.

This second pair has Curious Metallic cardstock elements but is made primarily from craft leather. I die cut two of the pieces for each earring from Curious Metallic Chestnut and Curious Metallic Aloe, and the fringe pieces from brown and green craft leather. I assembled them with Bearly Art precision craft glue, affixed the earring wires and rings, and then applied tiny dots of Bottle Green Crystal Drops.

And one more peek of each pair… super happy with how these turned out! Not sure whether I want to gift them or keep them! ;)

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
