Hidden Message ~ THANKS

****This is a pre-scheduled post****
I will be away from blogging for a period of time while I deal with the unexpected loss of my dad.  Thanks for your love and prayers. ~ Hugs, Birgit

We're nearing the end of October but there's still time to take advantage of the awesome sale on all Royal Sundance products at Cut Cardstock.  Today's project features a hidden die cut message using these wonderfully textured cardstocks.

 Here's a snapshot of the products I used today:
I started by creating two A2 size, top folding card bases using 80# Royal Sundance Linen cardstock in both Natural and Bright White.
I also cut two A2 size panels using the same linen cardstocks  and stamped this beautiful Painted Rose image from Altenew onto each panel using a Misti to line them up exactly.  

Using the Bold Alphabet Dies, cut the words Thank You through each of the stamped panels using tape to hold the dies together.  Cut the letters four more times out of 80# Neenah Solar White Classic Crest Carstock.  

Adhere the Linen panels to the cardbases using Score Tape, then glue the blank letters into the negative spaces using Tombow Mono Multi-Purpose Liquid Glue.  The added layers will give dimension to the finished cards.  
For the final step, glue the stamped Bright White letters onto the Natural cardstock and the stamped Natural letters onto the Bright White cardstock.  This gives you a cohesive image on the card fronts but mixing up the colors of the Linen Cardstocks.

I added some Clear Droplets to the finished cards.  Look how pretty!

I hope you're inspired by today's project.  You can find all the latest updates and inspiration on the Cut Cardstock Facebook Page and be sure to sign up for the CCS Newsletter so you'll be among the first to be notified about upcoming sales and discounts.  There's always great deals to be found at Cut Cardstock!

Thanks so much for stopping by!  Blessings~ Birgit
