Hello, CutCardStock fans! Leslie here, sharing another clean and simple card with you today. I sure am loving CAS more and more as time goes on! This ‘thinking of you’ card features our Curious Metallic cardstock that’s on sale this month, and took less than hour to make, from start to finish, including the alcohol pearls background! I used Curious Metallic White Gold cardstock and Curious Metallic Gold Leaf cardstock which are two of my favorites in the Curious Metallic line.
CREATE ALCOHOL INK BACKGROUND
- Drop green and gold alcohol pearls onto vellum and pounce with an alcohol ink applicator with a felt pad to distribute the pearls. Trim if necessary.
CUT CARD BASE AND LAYERS
- Cut a standard A2 size top-folding card base, a die cut border, and a narrow inside embellishing strip from Curious Metallic White Gold cardstock.
- Cut two narrow front embellishing strips, an inside layering panel and a narrow inside embellishing strip from Curious Metallic Gold Leaf cardstock.
- Cut an inside layering panel from Neenah Classic Baronial Ivory cardstock.
- Adhere the alcohol pearls panel beneath the die cut border and then adhere the narrow gold leaf embellishing strips down both sides.
- Adhere the narrow gold leaf and white gold embellishing strips to the ivory inside layering panel and then adhere to the gold leaf layering panel.
ADHERE FRONT PANEL AND ADD SENTIMENTS
- Adhere the die cut and inked panel to the card front.
- Adhere a foiled sentiment strip to the card front on a double-sided adhesive foam strip.
- Stamp the inside sentiment in green ink.
- Add several gemstones to the card front.
- Adhere the inside panel to the inside of the card base. Your pretty CAS card is complete! 😉
