Hi there it’s Tracey here today and I am so excited to share a card with you that was made using the brand new Dahlia Mini Frame Layering set. We are sharing projects made with the brand new Valentines release. The card I made today is a thank you card made with this beautiful mini frame die set.
The mini frame was going to be the star of the show so I decided to add all my colour on to the panel behind the frame. Here are the supplies that I used to make the card:
I started off with a watercolour panel that measured 5 1/4″ x 4″ and I sponged three shades of purple Distress Oxide Inks on to it. I spritzed it with water and let the panel dry. Once it was dry I sprayed it with a generous coating of Sheer Glimmer spray to give the panel lots of sparkle. If you don’t have a sparkle spray you could add shine with some glitter, Stickles or even with a shimmer pen like Wink of Stella.
Once the panel was dry I cut out one of each layer of the Dahlia Mini Frame set with heavy white cardstock. The three layers were glued together with a liquid adhesive. I like using liquid adhesive with the Birch Press Design layering dies because it gives you a bit of time to wiggle the layers into place.Once the frame was dry I adhered it to the watercolour panel and then set it aside to dry while I worked on my sentiment. I stamped and die cut the ‘Thanks’ from the brand new Lingo Thanks Stamp set with Copic friendly ink and I coloured the words in ombre with V01 and V15 blending them around the centre where they met. Once the colouring was done the Lingo Thanks die set was used to die cut the word. I set it aside because the main panel was dry and ready to adhere to the card base. I used foam tape to add the panel to the card base for extra dimension.
I was originally going to adhere the panel directly to the card base with tape runner but it didn’t stand out enough. So I carefully removed it and added foam tape pieces to it instead. I was worried that the tape runner might adhere to the card base accidentally so I used my powder tool to go over all the sticky that was around the foam tape. It worked out perfectly. This was one of those moments where I wished I had made a video! I love sharing my mistakes in my posts and how they can be fixed. Before adding the coloured thanks to the frame I backed it with pieces of foam tape so that it would sit at the same height as the frame.
To finish off the card I added a few clear silver Stickle filled sequins that were size 4mm and 6mm. If just gives the card a little more sparkle.
The Dahlia Mini Frame Layering die set is beautiful and can be used for so many occasions–Valentine’s, Easter, spring, summer, birthdays, anniversaries and many more! Right now this die set and some of the other layering sets are on sale at the Birch Press Design store! Check it out and see the rest of this fabulous release!
