Hello, CutCardStock fans! Leslie here, and thanks so much for joining me on the blog today! Are you a fan of artist trading cards and coins? If so, you’ve come to the right place, lol! And if not, no worries, because these designs could easily be turned into CAS cards! The ATCs I’m sharing with you today feature amazing Basis cardstock (that’s on sale this month so be sure to get some!) paired with Solar White Classic Crest which is a staple in my studio.
*Cut the cards at 2-1/2″ x 3-1/2″ and punch the coins with a 2-1/2″ circle punch, all from Neenah Classic Crest Solar White 110# cardstock.
*Cut card and coin layers and a variety of strips from CutCardStock Basis Aqua, Basis Dark Purple, Basis Gray, Basis Green, Basis Light Yellow, Basis Navy, Basis Orange (no longer stocked but Pop-Tone Tangy Orange would be a good alternative), Basis Red and Basis Teal cardstock. Not all of these will be used but you’ll want a good variety.
*Plan which image and sentiment will go on each card and coin.
*Stamp the images on Neenah Classic Crest Solar White 80# cardstock, color with alcohol markers and cut with the coordinating dies.
*Adhere Basis layers to Classic Crest bases. Add patterned paper layers and Basis strips.
*Adhere stamped and die cut images.
*Stamp corresponding sentiment on each. And you’re done! So fun!
