I am using Neenah Classic Crest Card Stock Solar White for my card base layer. I am scoring a sheet of * 1/2 by 11 inch cardstock at the 5 1/2 inch mark so that I can position my die slightly below the fold line to create a shaped base card. This will still have my card base in tact. I am using a die set from Crafters Companion. I have used Purple Tape from Deco Foil to hold my die in place when I run it through my die cutting machine.
Next I used the same die and cut a frame layer using the Stardream Metallic Gold Cardstock.Stardream Metallic Silver Cardstock. I then attached my layers using Scor-Tape. This is what it looks like.
