CutCardstock Design Team Project: Clean and Simple Wedding Wishes

Wedding season is still going strong and you can never have too many cards in your stash for these monumental events.  All you need is a couple of great “go-to” stamps and a simple design to create a special keepsake for the happy couple.

For this project, first featured on the CutCardstock blog, I started off with a notecard I made using Cougar White Smooth 100# cardstock.  I wanted to create a couple of light layers on the front of my card, so I first spread some glass bead paste (kind of like texture paste) over a heart stencil for the first layer.

When it dries, it gives this sheer, raised, iridescent look that’s so pretty for a wedding card.

For my second layer, I die cut some hearts in Cougar White and blended some light blue ink over the tops.  This gives a little bit of a contrast, but still keeps everything light and airy.

I adhered the hearts over the top of the stenciled hearts and added a “Mr. & Mrs.” die cut I cut from Currency Cover Silver cardstock over the top.

To decorate the inside, I stamped this pretty wooden stamp from Penny Black using my Stamp-A-Ma-Jig.

I left the bride and groom without color, but added a little color to the flowers using my gelatos and some water.  I added a sentiment above in blue ink.

This clean and simple card would be perfect with a foil-lined envelope for an extra special touch.

CutCardstock Design Team Project: Good Vibes

I cannot resist “retro style” typography.  When it’s a shadowed die cut–even better!  Today’s card, first featured over at the the CutCardstock blog, has all that and a layer of stenciled embossing– another favorite :).  The star of the show however is the gorgeous silver and gold card stock from the CutCardstock shop.  Pow Silver Glitter paper and Currency Cover Gold card stock.

I glued my word die cuts together using some strong Tombow glue.  I made two versions of the die cut and settled on the gold on top of the glitter.  I’ll save the other for another project.

Next, I took a 4.25″ x 5.5″ panel of Pop Tone card stock in Berrylicious and a stencil with some retro circles and ran VersaMark ink over the top of the stencil.  I then heat embossed opaque white embossing powder over the top.

I trimmed down the panel and adhered it to the front of a note card using foam tape.   I made the white card using Cougar White Super Smooth card stock in 100#.  The stencil was a little difficult to heat emboss perfectly because it did not have a border, but the die cut will cover that up.

I added some clear gems to mimic the bubbles in the stencil.  This card makes me smile.  The gold and silver card stock pieces give just enough shimmer and shine without overpowering the card.
