Do your 3D die cuts look flat? I’ve got just the project to add dimension, sparkle, and shine to your 3D layering dies featuring Curious Metallic Cardstock.
While I was tempted to use a rainbow of these luscious papers, I limited myself to 4 Curious Metallic colors – Peacock, Magma, Night, and Cryogen White. Magma is such a unique color! It’s like the offspring of shimmery ruby red and coral. Just gorgeous!
All the details for making this card can be found in the video below.
I started by cutting the cardstock with Altenew Layered Floral Elements Die Set. Each of the flowers had 3 layers so that was perfect for the dark colors. I cut 5 flowers, but only used 4 of them. I alternated colors for added interest.
For the leaves, I used white for the top layer and black for the under layer to contrast the flowers.
TIP: When assembling your flowers add glue to the center and curl the petals up for more dimension.
I die cut a piece of Neenah Solar White 80 lb with a Honey Bee Stamps Deckle Edge Rectangle die, size 3 x 4.75″, and arranged the flowers. Before I adhered the flowers, I added a bit of the Zentangle pattern cat-kin to bring in a touch more black.
I adhered the hug die cut from The Stamp Market Double Take Stamp & Cut Bundle and stamped a sub-sentiment from SSS, You Got This, then popped up the panel with sticky back fun foam and adhered it to an A2 sized card base.
That’s a wrap! I hope you enjoyed this card and feel inspired to add some shine to your projects with Curious Metallic Cardstock. Be creative & Breathe · Ink · Inspire.
