Welcome to the final day of the blog blitz! I am honored to be part of the Birch Press Design team and excited to bring you my very first post using some of their amazing products. For today’s card I used the beautiful Aurora Layering Dies featuring Big Friends Sugar Script Die and Best Friend stamp set.
To create this card, I first chose some coordinating colors to use with the Aurora Layering Die. I then die cut each layer and adhered the layers together with wet adhesive. While those dried I used the same card stock to die cut out the friend die. I chose to use black card stock for part of my sentiment so it popped and stood out among the softer colored card stock. This part of the sentiment came from the Best Friend stamp set. I used white embossing powder to heat emboss my sentiment, trimmed it, and then added some foam tape to give my sentiment strip some dimension.
Before adhering everything down to my card base, I took some white card stock and cut it down to 5 1/4″ x 4″ to create my card panel. Even though my card base is white, adding a white panel gives it a clean and professional look. I then adhered all my layers and sentiments to my card panel. I purposely had the Aurora Layering Die hang off the edge of my panel. Before adhering my panel to my card base, I took a deep breath and trimmed the pieces of the Aurora die that were hanging off the panel. I added some foam tape to the back of my panel and adhered it to my card base which measures A2 size (5 1/2″ x 4 1/4″) to complete the card.

Beautiful card design, I love your soft colours and how you off set the Aurora dies on the card front! This Aurora set has such open, loose features which remind me of floral petals, just stunning!

I love the simple elegant look your card has. It’s so pretty! I’ve never used Birch Press products, so I’m going to have to remedy that pretty soon!
