Do you like card stock with a bit of texture to it? The card I’m sharing today shows off the subtle texture of the Royal Sundance Cardstock perfectly without competing with the other elements of the card. This month, Royal Sundance Cardstock is on sale so head over to CutCardStock and check it out!
1. Die cut the sunflower and the dahlia first from Basis White 80lb Cardstock. Then die cut the stems from Royal Sundance Cardstock in Emerald, the dahlia from Royal Sundance Cardstock in Burgundy and the sunflower from Pop-Tone Cardstock in Lemon Drop. Cut the sunflower center from Stardream Metallic Antique Gold cardstock. The insides of the flower petals pop out. I added tape to the back of the flowers to keep them in place.
2. Add ink blending to the colored flower pieces in a darker color. Adhere the colored flower pieces over the white pieces with liquid glue.
3. Use an embossing folder with a piece of Royal Sundance Midnight Blue Cardstock cut to 4” x 5 1/4”. The subtle texture combined with the 3D effect of the embossing folder is lovely. Add to a white A2 card base with foam tape.
4. Adhere the flowers to the embossed panel with thin foam squares.
5. Die cut the sentiment from Sundance Cardstock in Burgundy. Adhere over the flower stems with liquid glue and where it hangs off stems use tiny foam pieces.
6. Add shimmer pen to the flowers, blue flat back pearls and glossy accents to the sentiment. Set aside to dry.
The Royal Sundance Cardstock color are so rich and deep. It really makes the sunflower pop. How do you use textured cardstocks? I admit I don’t use them much but seeing how they look here, I want to use them more! Remember to head over to CutCardStock to check out the Royal Sundance Cardstock on their monthly special page.
