Hello, CutCardStock fans! Leslie here, and thanks so much for joining me on the blog today! Do you have family members and/or friends (near or far) who you miss seeing during these crazy times? The card I’m sharing with you today features Neenah Classic Crest cardstock (which happens to be on sale this month – SCORE!) along with some Curious Metallic cardstock. Both the 110# and 80# Classic Crest are staples in my studio, and this whimsical ‘missing you’ card is a super simple design that could easily be mass produced so you have several in your stash at any given time.
*Cut a standard A2 size top-folding card base from Classic Crest Solar White 110# cardstock and round the bottom left corner.
*Cut a patterned paper layer for the front using two coordinating papers along with an embellishing strip for the inside.
*Cut a layering panel for the inside from Classic Crest Solar White 80# cardstock.
*Cut a narrow embellishing strip for the front and another one for the inside from Curious Metallic Chestnut cardstock, along with a layering panel for the inside.
*Stamp and die cut the focal image.
*Adhere the patterned paper layer to the front of the card base and adhere the brown cardstock embellishing strip horizontally along the seam.
*Stamp the sentiment in brown ink on the left side just beneath the embellishing strip.
*Color the focal image.
*Adhere the patterned paper and brown cardstock embellishing strips along the left side of the inside panel, stamp the sentiment in brown ink, and adhere the panel to the brown cardstock panel.
*Adhere the focal image to the front of the card and affix several brown enamel dots.
*Adhere the inside panel to the inside of the card base. Voila, your card is finished! 😉
