so happy for you

Hi everyone! Happy Friday! I’m stoked to be back on the CutCardStock blog today with an awesome DT inspiration project featuring Pop-Tone cardstock that was included in our Designer’s Pack! First order of business is to let you know that this post contains affiliate links. I created a pretty congrats card that initially made me think ‘wedding’ but really could be used for just about any occasion calling for congratulations – and this one is loaded with color!

This is a quilt block card. I used Pop-Tone Grape Jelly cardstock, Pop-Tone Orange Fizz cardstock, Pop-Tone Razzleberry cardstock and Pop-Tone Wild Cherry cardstock as the base layers of the quilt blocks which really pop on the Pop-Tone Black Licorice cardstock background. I matched the flower ink colors to the colors of the Pop-Tone cardstock and added some tiny iridescent gemstones to the center of each flower.

I embellished the inside panel with strips of the Pop-Tone cardstock used for the quilt blocks on the front, stamped the sentiment in black ink and layered the panel on the black Pop-Tone cardstock.

One more peek… I’m so smitten with these Pop-Tone cardstock colors! ;)
