Change the Card base, Change the Look

Hello friends. I had too much fun playing with different card stocks and the new Hero Arts monthly kit. It’s Teri with TerisMailbox posting for Cutcardstock. See what a different Cardstock bases makes when using the same die and inks.

Change the Cardstock, Create the Base

Select four different card stock bases for this project. I used DCS Galax Olive Green, Moonrock, Savoy 100% Cotton and Royal Sundance Kraft to achieve the different looks. Die cut the frame in the center of an A2 size base (Kraft, Galax and Moonrock. Use the rubber pad to dry emboss the frame into the Savoy A2 base.

Stencil the Bases

Use the coordinating stencils from the set to ink the images. I used Mustard Seed, Barn Door, Expresso and Brushed Corduroy Distress Oxide Inks. There are multiple stencils in this set. You can use more than one color on each stencil if you wish. I love working with layering Stencils.

See what a difference just changing the base color makes on the final panel. The ink colors change based on the different color bases!

Stamp the Sentiments

Stamp the sentiment in the center of an A2 panel for the die cut panels and directly on the Savoy Cotton dry embossed panel. Use Fired Brick Distress Ink using a stamp positioner for the first stamping. Do not move the stamp, and ink with Versamark ink. Add clear embossing powder and restamp.

Assemble the Cards

Use Cougar 100 lb. White or 80 lb. Natural card stock to create your bases. Simply cut the panels into 5.5 x 11 inches and score in the center to create your A2 panels. Soooo easy. Attach the die cut panels to a base of your choice as well as the embossed panel.
