Do you love colored cardstock? I know I do! This month, Pop-Tone Card Stock is on sale at CutCardStock and I had so much fun using it for this card.
1. Cut strips of Pop-Tone Card Stock to 1/4” x 8 1/2”. I used Cotton Candy, Red Hot, Orange Fizz, Lemon Drop, Gumdrop Green, Sno Cone and Grape Jelly.
2. Cut a piece of printer paper to 4 1/4” x 5 1/2”.
3. Adhere the Pop-Tone Card Stock strips to the printer paper on the diagonal using your preferred method. I used an adhesive sheet but you could also use liquid glue or tape runner.
4. Die cut the word love from the striped panel twice. I attempted to line them up in the same manner they will appear on the card.
5. Die cut the word two more times from Sweet Tooth card stock and once from Black Licorice Card Stock for each word.
6. Adhere the Sweet Tooth card stock die cuts behind the striped word with liquid glue.
7. Adhere the Black Licorice Card Stock offset to create a shadow effect.
8. Cut a piece of Sweet Tooth card stock to 4” x 5 1/4” and stamp a script background on it in a light gray ink.
9. Adhere word die cuts to stamped panel.
10. Die cut a heart from Red Hot Card Stock. Stamp and heat emboss the word “is”. Place between the die cut words on foam tape.
11. Add shimmer pen to striped words, then a small amount of glitter glue to the bottom of the words.
12. Add panel to Basis Grey 80lb Card Stock cut to 4 1/4” x 5 1/2”. Add acrylic hearts with liquid glue.
13. Adhere to a Premium Classic Crest A2 Folded Discount Card Stock.
When doing this technique, it’s better to adhere the strips to printer paper so you don’t add bulk and make the die cutting difficult. It also helped that the Pop-Tone Card Stock was only 65lbs.
Have you ever tried this strips of cardstock technique? I don’t do it often but I always love it when I do. If you try it, please share with us!
