Hello, CutCardStock fans! Leslie here, and thanks so much for joining me on the blog today! Who doesn’t always need a birthday card or three in their stash? #raisingmyhand Birthdays are always happening somewhere, lol! The fun birthday card I’m sharing with you today features some of our most beautiful Curious Metallic cardstock (that happens to be on sale this month so be sure to get some!) along with Classic Linen and Classic Crest cardstock! I’m always down for a shaker and this one was a blast to make!
*Cut a standard A2 size top folding card base from Royal Sundance Felt Natural 110# cardstock.
*Cut front background panel and narrow embellishing strip for the inside from Royal Sundance Linen Ivory 80# cardstock.
*Cut front and inside layering panels from Curious Metallic Chestnut 111# cardstock, as well as sentiment and cocktail glass die cuts.
*Cut embellishing strip for the front and narrow embellishing strip for the inside from Curious Metallic Pink Quartz 111# cardstock, as well as interior cocktail glass die cut.
*Cut inside panel from Classic Crest Baronial Ivory 80# cardstock.
*Adhere pink quartz strip to linen background, assemble cocktail glass with sequins and seed beads as filler, and adhere panel to brown layer.
*Adhere embellishing strips to inside panel and adhere to brown layer.
*Add die cut sentiment vertically to pink quartz strip.
*Stamp inside sentiment in pink ink.
*Adhere front panel to card base and add a few sequin ‘bubbles’ above glass on left side, and add several small ivory enamel dots on pink quartz strip.
*Adhere inside panel to inside of card base. Voila, your card is finished and I hope you enjoy it as much as I did! 😉
