Woo Hoo! Another Shortcut & Some Blog Candy!!

Hi everyone!! Happy Friday!! As promised, I had another There She Goes and Shortcuts project to share with you today! I am VERY excited about this!! This was FUN to make!!

As you may know, There She Goes is having an exciting week of projects showcasing the fabulous products from Shortcuts!!

Shortcuts, launched in June of 2008 & the sister site to SheetLoad of Cards, is dedicated making your papercrafting quicker and easier. Everybody likes a short cut every now and then!

Shortcuts has some AWESOME stuff on their site, like the Gift Card Holder Folder I showed you on Wednesday! They also have Clear & Frosted Card Blanks (which also come in Full Sheets!!), which is what I used today to make this uber cute (if I say so myself! LOL) clear card!!

These are UNBELIEVABLE to work with!! Shortcuts will help you to make fabulous clear and frosted cards...easily! Each of the stocks is made of a thick vinyl material. Think clear/frosted cardstock – none of that flimsy transparency material. Best of all the clear cards are fingerprint resistant. No more wearing white gloves while making your clear cards. Score!!

For my card, I started by stamping my favorite little snail from Slow and Steady by There She Goes in Memento Tuxedo Black onto Choice Buttercream Cardstock. I then masked him and stamped the grass behind him as well as the dragonfly (which I stamped twice), and the colored everything with my Copic Markers. The second dragonfly that I stamped was also colored with Copic Markers and then popped up on Foam Tape.

I framed my snail in Circle and Scallop Circle Nestabilities, and I used some DELISH patterned paper from the Girl Friday Collection from Cosmo Cricket (this paper is my latest addiction!). I used Prism Cardstock on my card in Frosted Teal, Rose Medium and Intense Kiwi.

I finished off my card with some brads that I picked up in Joannes and a double satin ribbon of gree and teal! I, of course, added some piercing before I called it done!!

This was ALOT of fun to make, and the Vinyl card base is SO sturdy! LOVE this!!!
