Hey everybody! Well, another weekend is behind us and we’re that much closer to Christmas! I hope you had a pleasant weekend with some nice temps! I have an awesome CutCardStock DT inspiration project to share with you today featuring our Basis White cardstock which is another staple in my studio. It makes awesome card bases and is great for stamping and coloring. Alcohol markers blend really nicely on this cardstock without leaving any lines. Interestingly, this congrats card has no stamping or coloring; it’s made entirely with die cuts, and really IS a fun fold! ;)
Using the Creative Craft Products Double Gatefold die set, I die cut the card base from Basis 80# White cardstock, and all the layer pieces from Darice Ooh La La Prints cardstock. I assembled the panels, and as I always say, the assembly is the most fun!
I die cut the sentiment twice from Pop Tone Black Licorice and Flamingo cardstock using the STAMPlorations Congrats word die, adhered them together in a slightly offset fashion and then to the card base. I added some Eyelet Outlet 5mm clear gemstones that I colored with an alcohol marker, which completed the card.
And one more look… this is admittedly one of my favorite die sets, and I love the black and white with pop of the Flamingo pinkish-orange! The Basis White cardstock is a must-have, for sure!
