Great Impressions/CutCardStock Ladies' Night Blog Hop!


Oh, yes, it's Ladies' Night--oh what a night! ;)  The Great Impression team is hopping this month with the CutCardStock team to share creations using products from both the Great Impressions and CutCardStock online stores...with a feminine theme!  

You should have arrived here from the CutCardStock blog.  If not, start at the Great Impressions blog to make sure you see all the links and fabulous inspiration!  Take a peek at what I created...


I chose to make a box card!  The base was made with Curious Metallic Violette cardstock and jazzed up with some Silk Glitter Opulent Opal cardstock.  The image is C414 Cameo.  I stamped it with purple ink onto Classic Crest cardstock before punching it out and matting it with Curious Metallic Lime cardstock.


The sentiment is C452 You're Fabulous.  It was also stamped in purple onto Classic Crest cardstock and then matted onto Curious Metallic Lime cardstock.  Some ribbon was added as an anchor.


The sides and inside were glammed up with flowers made from Curious Metallic White Gold and Curious Metallic Lime cardstocks.  The butterflies are made with more Curious Metallic Violette cardstock and Silk Glitter Opulent Opal cardstock.  The leaves are all punched from Curious Metallic Botanic cardstock.  I LOVE the beautiful shine this creation has--it's amazing in real life!




I decided to go with pearls as my accents.  I LOVE pearls, and I really think they are perfect for a feminine theme!  Plus, they go with everything, right?!  I really think this creation turned out beautifully, and hope you agree!  I can't wait to hear what you think in the comments below!


Your next stop on the hop is Annie's blog!  That's all for me today, friends.  THANK YOU so much for stopping by to take a peek at my card!  I also would love for you to come and join our monthly challenge!  If you use a stamp from the Great Impressions online store, please link it up in our Customer Gallery, too!  Until next time, HUGS and happy stamping, friends! :)
