Hello, CutCardStock fans! Leslie here, and thanks so much for joining me on the blog today! Who doesn’t need the occasional congrats card in their stash? I seem to gravitate toward birthday cards most often so I try to consciously create other kinds of cards. The congrats card I’m sharing with you today is super easy, looks like quilt blocks and features Classic Linen and Classic Crest cardstock (which is on sale this month – YAY!) along with the super gorgeous Basis Teal cardstock!
*Cut a standard A2 size top-folding card base from Classic Linen Solar White 100# cardstock, along with a small sentiment strip for the front and a layering panel for the inside from Classic Crest Solar White 80# cardstock.
*Cut a sentiment strip layer for the front, a layering panel for the inside, a narrow embellishing strip and 12 1-5/8″ squares from Basis Teal 80# cardstock.
*Cut 12 1-1/2″ squares from patterned paper and adhere them to the teal cardstock layers, which will form the quilt blocks.
*Starting with the center of the card base front, adhere the quilt blocks and leave a thin margin between them and offset them as much as you want. They’ll look a little wonky going off the top, bottom and sides until they are trimmed even with the edges of the card base.
*Adhere the small sentiment strip to the teal layer, and stamp the sentiment.
*Adhere the narrow teal embellishing strip to the left side of the inside panel, stamp the sentiment and adhere the panel to the teal layer.
*Adhere the sentiment to the card front and adhere the inside panel to the inside of the card base.
*Adhere iridescent gemstones to the flower centers for a little blingy interest. Ta-da, your card is finished! 😉
