Happy March friends!! kel here to share my first post here at the CutCardStock blog!!! Can I just share how *squeeeee!* excited I am to be here and share some fun projects with you all?!?
For my first project today I’m sharing a simple sympathy card featuring some colors from the Curious Metallic line!! And I apologize for the shadows in some of my pictures… we just finished our window renovations and I’m still trying to figure out how to deal with the new way the light comes into the room lol!!
I took some fun circle stamps in some matching ink colors and stamped around on the 89# Poison Ivory card front in a random-ish pattern. Make sure to put some scratch paper down when you stamp off the edge so you don’t have ink everywhere lol!!
The last thing I stamped was a 1″ scrap of 111# Nude, cut into a little flag banner and then stamped on with a simply beautiful sympathy sentiment.
I then glued everything together, centering all the panels and then adding the sentiment banner to the top right corner of the card.
I always struggle with sympathy cards because I tend to always make them floral or kind of dull and colorless. So it was a challenge for me to do something different, and I have to say that I’m really happy with how it came out!!
And I like that there’s a little flare of shimmer to the card too… I’m always afraid of adding too many embellishments but then afraid that it’s too boring without it… so this little bit of shimmer is just perfect!
Thanks so much for stopping by and I hope you come back soon!! And make sure to check out the CutCardStock Facebook Page to see what else the Design Team is up to and to make sure to stay up-to-date with the latest CutCardStock.com sale!!
I don’t know about you, my fellow crafters, but I have a thing for rainbow color patterns. I like to store my inks and cardstocks in rainbow color and I love to craft using the bright colors of the rainbow. I think that is something that hit me when I was about 9 years old,…
I cannot resist “retro style” typography. When it’s a shadowed die cut–even better! Today’s card features all that and a layer of stenciled embossing– another favorite :). The star of the show however is the gorgeous silver and gold card stock from the CutCardstock shop. Pow Silver Glitter paper and Currency Cover Gold card stock….
Weddings are the kind of occasion where I really like to personalize a gift…all the way down to the packaging. Decorating a plain kraft gift bag with a couple’s wedding colors or flowers is the perfect way to add a unique touch to that ordinary registry item. Start by trimming a piece of foiled patterned…
As children return to school, it should be noted just how much paper can accumulate in a short time. This paper can include graded papers, supply lists, activity announcements, permission slips, vocabulary/spelling word lists just to name a few. Typically they end up in tattered folders at the bottom of a child’s book bag. Why…
