Have you gotten your Clear Cardstock from the Cutting Café Shop yet? If you're like me, when you first saw it, you said Clear Cardstock? Is it really clear? Is it like Vellum... what exactly is this Clear Cardstock... well... it's clear! And it is awesome and a really nice weight for projects of all kinds... shakers, treat boxes, and more. Here I've used it to make a Butterfly Treat Box from the Cutting Café and a Shaker Card made using one of the fantastic overlay files available from the Cutting Café, For You Mom. Now.. if you're a certain person reading my blog, you might think that this is for you... but you don't know that for sure.. so... just focus....
This Butterfly Treat Box is so cool! And you can cut it out of cardstock... or here, I used the clear cardstock as a base and then covered parts of it with various printed paper and cardstock. The paper is Graphic 45. And the For You Mom Overlay set comes with some really cute sentiments to print and use on your projects if you wish... I used one of them here.... again.. you!... focus.
I'm also playing along with the Just Us Girls Color Challenge #339 using Lavender, Peach and Ivory... Sorbet is the closest color I had to a Peach so I went with it.
Here's a view from the side so you can see how cute the clear cardstock base and handle are. I added some Shimmer Trim to the handle.. you know.. so you can find it... cause... it's Clear! And I used my Liquid Glass for adhesive because ... well... it's Clear!
And here is the card... I used the overlay from the set and added a frame on the inside so I could hide my foam tape (does anyone else have a need for REALLY skinny foam tape?)...
And here it is all shook up... I used a mix of some of my favorite sequins to get the right colors for the challenge. And please... if you think this is cool... please be sure and hop on over to my fellow Cutting Café teammate's blog and check out her piece of art with the clear cardstock... you really don't want to miss that... do yourself a favor and visit Mitra here!
I added a few flowers that I colored with my Shin Hans, glittered with some Tim Holtz Distress Glitter and sprinkled a few more sequins and other doo-dads around.
