Happiness | by Tracey McNeely

Welcome back for another inspiration post at Birch Press Design. Today I will be creating a card using the new Ludlow Triangle Collage craft die along with some fall inspired colours to create an ombre background! I created a short video tutorial for you so that you can see the steps I took to make this card and so you can recreate this card for yourself if you like.

I started by ink blended some Distress Oxide inks onto a panel of Bristol Smooth cardstock, I used Ripe Persimmon, Spiced Marmalade and Fossilized Amber. I also used the Ludlow Triangle Collage and the Big Wishing Sugar Script craft dies.
The Ludlow Triangle craft die cuts all the detail of the die but does not does not cut the outer edges of the die. For my card today I wanted to cut the die so that all the lovely detail would sit in the corner of my ombre ink blended panel. I did this by cutting the die in the bottom corner of a piece of black cardstock and then trimming it off with my cutter. Let’s have a look…

The Big Wishing Sugar Script die set will cut both a sentiment and a shadow for when you want to add extra depth to the design. The sentiment from Wishing You the Best clear stamps set was embossed with white on black cardstock and was added to the card front with foam tape.
The ombre background really showcases the elegance of the Ludlow Triangle’s design.
Thanks so much for coming by today and I hope I’ve inspired you to do something creative today. See you again next week and have a wonderful weekend.
