Happy Birthday Peony | Angel Rivera

Hi all!  Angel here with a card using some newly released goodies!  I love these new Peony Bloom layered dies!  And guess what!?  I’m giving away the Peony Bloom Layer B!!!  Be sure to leave a comment on this post and we’ll announce a winner in a few days! 

To start my card, I watercolored my background, keeping the color where the die (Peony Bloom layer A) would cut out the flower petals.

As you see here, the watercoloring lines up with the die.  I used the same watercoloring technique for the leaves, which you’ll see on the finished card.

I then used the die to cut out plain white card stock and also the watercolored paper.  I adhered the plain white die cut paper to a scrap piece of paper, then began the task of filling in the petals with the watercolored pieces.  Try it some time, it’s quite therapeutic.  🙂

I used the new Make a Statement stamp set and dies for the sentiment.  I used washi tape to adhere the dies to some scrap paper, then sponged ink onto the middle of the sentiments.  Once I cut out the word dies, I then used black ink to stamp the actual words onto what I had previously sponged.

I adhered the leaves to the back of the sentiments then layered them with foam adhesive onto the card.

Thanks for stopping by!  Don’t forget to comment for your chance to win a Peony Bloom Layer B die!
