I am so excited to be a new member of the design team for CutCardstock! And anyone that knows me, knows I am a total cardstock junkie, so we are definitely talking a perfect fit! So let’s get to my first project, Hello!
I am using Neenah Classic Crest Card Stock Solar White for my card base layer. I am cutting my cardstock to 6 inches by 8 inches. I am then scoring my cardstock at 4 inches to create a 4 inch by 6-inch card base.
Since I am making a shaped card I have positioned my die on my card base in such a way as to leave the top attached, so that when I run it through my die cutting machine I will still have my card base intact. I am using a die set from Crafters Companion called Grande Mirror Frame from their Create A Card Collection.
Next, I used the same die and cut a frame layer using the Stardream Metallic Silver Cardstock. I did cut out the center on this pass of the die through the die-cutting machine. And you will see why in the next step.
I then grabbed a sheet of Yupo paper and alcohol inks in Purple Twilight, Wild Plum, and Raspberry and Alcohol Blending Solution. This is what it looks like.
Next I cut the piece for the center of the frame from the Yupo paper.
I then used a piece of Pop-Tone Card Stock in Black Licorice. I put a layer of Scor-Tape on the back of the Black Licorice and positioned the word “Hello” and the dies to create an oval frame on and ran this through my die cutting machine.
Since I had the Scor-Tape on the back, I was able to attach these layers like stickers. Finally, to finish off my project, I added some I Am Roses flowers to my project. I really love how this came out.
I do hope you have enjoyed this project and can’t wait to see what you create!
