Classic to Elegant with a change in Paper!

Change the vibe of your card from Classic to Elegant by simply changing papers! Today I demonstrate this comparing Cougar 80 lb. cardstock to Classic Pearl Linen CardStock from Cutcardstock. I used two different stamp sets to highlight the difference.

The top photos is the Classic Pearl Linen cardstock. The shine makes these cards just sparkle!

This is the classic version. I used the Watercolor Halftone from Altenew on Cougar Cardstock.

This is the Classic Pearl Linen version. If you scroll back and forth, you can really see the shine created with this cardstock!

Both cards were trimmed, one with the Tonic Deckle Edge Trimmer and one with the straight edge trimmer and mounted on a blu frame and a white A2base.

I decided to try another pair, this time Copic colored.

This is the classic version, Gold Embossed, Copic colored and mounted with 2 thin strips of Gold Pearl Cardstock. Altenew’s Sweet Pea stamp set is featured.

This one is done on the Classic Linen Pearl Cardstock in other words, it has a much more metallic or sparkling look!

Here are the close-ups of this version.

I challenge you to try different cardstocks with the same stamps and inks or markers! I hope you have enjoyed this overview.

Thanks so much for stopping by today! I’d love to have you follow/subscribe on my social media sites Instagram, Facebook, Blogger and You Tube.  Be well. Be creative!
