Sparkling Joy!

Hello friends!  This is my final post for the Cut Cardstock design team and I wanted to give a super BIG "Thanks" to Cindy and Amber for giving me this opportunity to join their talented team of designers for the past year.  I've enjoyed using so many amazing products from Cut Cardstock and I'm now a committed customer as well!  There are so many choices of quality products from Cut Cardstock and you can't beat the prices and special sales each month.  

My project for you today uses White Classic Linen Cardstock and Neenah Classic Crest Solar White Cardstock which are both on sale until the end of the day.

Here's a sneak peek at the products I used:

I started by cutting an A2 sized panel of Neenah Solar White Cardstock using the background die.  I then used the die cut panel as a stencil and added some Worn Lipstick Distress Oxide Ink to the front of a White Classic Linen Cardstock.

I glued two strips of Silver (POW) Glitter Paper to the left and right edge using Tombow Mono Multi-Purpose Liquid Glue .  I also splattered some light grey ink to the background.

I cut the Altenew Tulips out of White Classic Linen Cardstock and stamped them using the coordinating stamps.  After stamping the tulips I stamped the solid image again using The Essential Glue Pad and sprinkled them with Stardust Glitter from Stampin' Up and set them asside to dry before assembling them with Tombow Mono Multi-Purpose Liquid Glue.  

Once the card was assembled, I stamped the sentiment from the Tulips set.
 Here's a close up of the wonderful texture you see when stamping on Linen cardstock.  

I hope you'll check out the products I used in today's post and take advantage of this month's sale on all Classic Crest  and Linen Cardstock.  Don't forget to add coordinating Basis Envelopes to your shopping cart!
I'll be entering this card into the following challenges:
Simon Says Monday Challenge ~ In My Garden
City Crafter Challenge ~ Die Cuts

Thanks for stopping by!
