Congrats!

Happy Hump Day, friends! I’m stoked to be back on the CutCardStock blog today with an awesome DT inspiration project featuring more of the Stardream Metallic cardstock that was included in our Designer’s Pack – which happens to be on sale this month so be sure to get some! Affiliate links are used in this post at no cost to you. I really appreciate your support! I created a pretty ‘all occasion’ congrats card that would be great for just about any occasion calling for a congratulations!

I cut a standard A2 size top-folding card base from Classic Crest Solar White 110# cardstock along with an inside layering panel and a stitched scallop yoke from Classic Crest Solar White 80# cardstock. Then I cut a front layering panel, a medium stitched flag die cut and a 1/4″ embellishing strip for the inside from Stardream Metallic Silver 105# cardstock. And finally I cut a large stitched flag die cut, a congrats die cut, an inside layering panel and a 1/8″ embellishing strip from Stardream Metallic Sapphire 105# cardstock. I adhered the stitched scallop yoke to the top of the silver front layering panel, leaving the bottom center of the yoke free of adhesive. I adhered the medium silver stitched flag to the large blue stitched flag, applied adhesive to the back side of the flags and slid them underneath the very bottom edge of the yoke. I adhered the congrats die cut to the flags and then embellished the yoke with three iridescent gemstones. I’m calling this a yoke because it reminds me of a yoke on a child’s dress. Did you or any of your kids ever have those dresses with the ruffled yokes at the top?!

I embellished the inside panel with the strips of silver and blue cardstock, stamped the sentiment in blue ink and then layered the panel on the blue cardstock.

And one more look… love having cards in my stash that can be used for more than one occasion!

Hi friends! I hope you’re having a wonderful weekend! It’s time for a new challenge over at Love To Scrap Challenge Blog and I’m super stoked to share my DT inspiration project for LTSCB #139 – Anything Goes! I created a colorful ‘congrats’ card using two Dare 2B Artzy stamp sets that I’ve had in my stash for a while, and it sure felt good to finally get around to using them!

I stamped the image in black ink on the front panel and then decided I wanted it embossed, so I stamped it again in Versamark and heat embossed it with clear embossing powder. This is a great trick to get virtually any color of embossing! I stamped the congrats sentiment in black ink and then colored the image with Bic Mark-It markers. The Bics are fine-tip markers in bright colors which really dressed up the image. ;)

I stamped the inside sentiment and colored it with the Bic Mark-It markers, and then embellished the panel with several strips of colored cardstock to match the colors used in the image.
