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.
Thanks so much for joining me today!
