Just Because Card

Hey there! Today I'm sharing my first CutCardStock project for June. It is a floral card design that is sure to make someone feel special, “just because”. This card was created with a variety of card stocks from the  Pop Tone line which were matted, stamped, die cut and/or embossed. If you haven’t checked out the Pop Tone line you should. Available in a wide range of colors, they are on special this month.

I started with a white card base made with a piece of Pop Tone PINK LEMONADE 8.5×11 Discount Card Stock measuring 6 1/2 x 10 inches folded in half. Two mats were cut from Pop Tone RAZZLEBERRY 8.5×11 Discount Card Stock (6 1/8 x 4 5/8 inches) and Pop Tone SWEET TOOTH 8.5×11 Discount Card Stock (6 x 4 1/2 inches).

I embossed the piece of Sweet Tooth card with a corner flourish embossing folder and inked with a light green ink to add a little color. This piece was adhered to the Razzleberry mat and the card base.

With the base done, I stamped, wet embossed and die cut my flower pieces from Pop Tone PINK LEMONADE Pop Tone RAZZLEBERRY and Pop Tone COTTON CANDY 8.5×11 Discount Card Stock. The sentiment was die cut from Pop Tone COTTON CANDY. Foliage was die cut from Pop Tone GUM DROP GREEN 8.5×11 Discount Card Stock and Pop Tone BLUE RASPBERRY CardStock 8.5×11.

Flowers were assembled by layering. Pearls were added to the centers. Each of the flowers measure about 1 1/2 inches overall.

Originally, I was going to just arrange all of my die cut pieces on to the embossed background. But, I decided to add a smaller panel to the card center to do so.

A 5 1/4 x 2 1/2 inch piece of Sweet Tooth card is matted by a 5 3/8 x 2 5/8 inch piece of Razzleberry. The die cut sentiment is adhered to a matted strip.

Start arranging the die cut flowers and foliage by laying out on the base. 

Once you like the design adhere. I used a low temp glue gun.

I hope I have provided a little inspiration for you today! And remember we’d love for you to connect with us over on the CutCardStock Facebook Page!
