Hey everybody, Happy Tuesday! I hope you had a great weekend! I just can’t believe how fast the days are zipping by… so hard to believe we’re on the downslide to the end of August already! I have an awesome CutCardStock DT inspiration project to share with you today featuring my favorite Neenah Classic Crest Solar White cardstock that I paired with our textured Blue Hydrangea cardstock, Brown Bag Kraft paper and Beach Side Prints cardstock. I love a blue and brown color combo, and even with a few brown pearls, this card has a masculine feel.
I cut a 3-1/2″ x 6″ mini slimline card base from Neenah Classic Crest 110# Solar White cardstock along with a layering panel from Beach Side Prints cardstock and a reversed scallop frame from Blue Hydrangea cardstock using the Kat Scrappiness Mini Slimline Reversed Scallop Dies. Using the Kat Scrappiness Thinking of You Word Die with Shadow, I cut the sentiment from Blue Hydrangea cardstock and the shadow from Brown Bag Kraft Paper and adhered them together. I adhered the frame to the panel and adhered them to the card base, and then added the sentiment. The finishing touch was adding several Eyelet Outlet 3mm brown pearls.
I cut the inside panel from Neenah Classic Crest 80# Solar White cardstock and embellished it with strips cut from the Beach Side Prints cardstock and Brown Bag Kraft Paper. I cut another reversed scallop frame from Blue Hydrangea cardstock using the Kat Scrappiness Mini Slimline Reversed Scallop Dies and adhered it to the panel. I stamped the sentiment from the Paper Smooches Lovely Thoughts stamp set in Catherine Pooler Over Coffee ink, and adhered the panel to the inside of the card base.
And one more look… what a great color combo along with amazing cardstock and dies! Love how this one turned out!
