Hello friends, Thank you for joining me on the CutCardStock blog today. This is another installment in how to use DCS white 12×12 sheets for different card making techniques. I hope this card shows you some different ways to use white card stock.
Today, I will be using the DCS white cardstock to emboss a background and to color using Copic Markers. Wild Blueberry Navy cardstock and Curious Metallic Rose Gold cardstock will enhance the card.
Let’s get started.
I like using 12×12 sheets because I can get so many panels out of them to try different things. The 12×12 sheet was cut into 6 panels at 4” wide by 5.25” tall. I then ran all these panels through my die cutting machine using various background embossing folders.
I then cut a second 12×12 sheet into three 4” wide strips and stamped the main image from Hero Arts Kit-Tea stamp set.
I used Copic markers to color in the image. The paper stood up well to all the blending I did with the markers.
To color this cat I used: RV91, V93, W5, C7, E51, W1.
The tea cup and flower: BG000, G000, Y28, E84, RV11, BV17, Y19, RV21
To assemble, I used a sheet of Wild Blueberry cardstock to make 2 top folding A2 sized cards. I attached the embossed panels. To one card, I added an oval I die cut out and then used rose gold embossing powder to give the edge of the oval some glam as well as die cut a sentiment from the set.
On the other card, I cut a strip of Curious Metallic Rose Gold paper, a strip of Wild Blueberry paper which had a sentiment heat embossed with the same rose gold powder.
To both cards, I adhered the colored image using foam tape and some gems to complete the look.
I hope you enjoyed these cards today and take a look at how to use your white cardstock in different ways!
