Delivering Warm Hugs

3/5/23 Sweet Pick at Cupcake Inspirations!

Hi everyone! I hope you have something fun planned this weekend! It sure got here fast… not that I’m complaining! I love every day of the week! I have an awesome CutCardStock DT inspiration project to share with you today featuring our Solar White Classic Linen and Classic Crest paired with Pop Tone Spearmint cardstock! I printed an absolutely gorgeous digital image from The Hungry Jpeg on 80# Classic Linen, trimmed it down and popped it up on white craft foam on a 100# Classic Linen card base. I added a foiled sentiment and some gemstones, and BOOM, a beautiful clean and simple card was made!

I printed The Hungry Jpeg’s Roses 3 digital image on Neenah Classic Linen 80# Solar White cardstock, trimmed it down to fit the card base, and cut the bottom right corner off with my Tonic corner punch. Here’s a close-up of the image so you can see how gorgeous it looks printed on the linen cardstock!

I cut a standard A2 size top-folding card base from Neenah Classic Linen 100# Solar White cardstock and cut off the bottom right corner. I adhered the digital image to a piece of Darice Foamies white craft foam and then to the card base. I added a foiled sentiment that I created with the Spellbinders Glimmer Hot Foil System, Spellbinders Glimmer Silver Foil, and Spellbinders Glimmer Mini Christmas Sentiment Strips Hot Foil Plate & Die Set. The finishing touch was adding several gemstones from the Trinity Andradite Sparkle Embellishment Mix with my Trinity Pick Up Stick.

I cut the inside panel from Neenah Classic Crest 80# Solar White, embellished it with a leftover strip of Neenah Classic Linen 80# Solar White, and layered the panel on CutCardStock Pop Tone Spearmint cardstock. I stamped the sentiment from Waffle Flower Essential Sentiments in Catherine Pooler Aquatini ink and cut it with the coordinating die.

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
