Hey y’all! Stephanie here from Coffee Stamps Chaos again. Can you believe it’s June already? This year has already flown almost half by! This month I have a simple project that uses leftover pieces of cardstock to create an easy card. As with most paper crafters, I have “scrap bins”, I keep cut pieces of Cardstock in them, that are ready to use when I need small pieces either for sentiments, for die cuts for my cards or for any other paper crafting needs. I personally do a lot of die cutting for my cards because I love it, and I hate wasting paper, especially my Cardstock warehouse Cardstock! For this project you will need:
- Cardstock Warehouse Cardstock Papers
- Marrs Green Colorplan
- Imperial Blue Colorplan
- Quartz Stardream Metallic
- Sirio Ultra Black
- Nuvo Glue
- Quickie Glue Pen
- die cutting machine
- paper trimmer
- Die cut border out of Cardstock, I cut mine so I had three each of Marrs Green & Imperial Blue
- Apply ScorTape adhesive to the back of die cut pieces along the edge
- Adhere second die cut to create one piece
- Adhere die cuts to Quartz Cardstock
- Layer background to 4” x 51/4” piece of Imperial Blue Cardstock
- Adhere die cut background to card base
- Die cut sentiment - I cut one in Imperial Blue, and three more from Sirio Ultra Black
- Glue Sentiment layers together to create a thick sentiment
- Cut strips for the sentiment background. I cut mine at ½” x 3 ¾” and 1” x 3 ¾” and layered them.
- Adhere Sentiment strip to card base background.
- Glue the sentiment to the card
