Hello, crafty friends, I’m so glad you’re here! Today I’m sharing two cards that feature the pretty Petal Triangles Layer die set, and sentiments from the You Are Awesome stamp set.
I started by creating two square ink-blended panels. Starting with Strathmore bristol smooth cardstock, I used foam blending tools to blend on Squeezed Lemonade, Wild Honey, and Picked Raspberry Distress Oxide inks. On one panel, I started with yellow in the middle and blended out to pink at the edges, and on the other panel, I started with pink in the middle and blended out to yellow.
Next, using white cardstock, I used the Petal Triangle Layer die set to die cut four full sets of layers (each set has three layers, A, B, and C) for my first card. I also cut four additional top layers (layer A) for my second card.
Using the same pink ink, I inked all of my middle layers (layer B). Then I stacked the four sets of layers and adhered them together.
I adhered these finished layered triangles to one of the backgrounds. To the other background I adhered the four top layers (layer A) for a less dimensional, simpler look.
Next I stamped sentiments from the You Are Awesome stamp set in black pigment ink onto white cardstock. I adhered each sentiment to a vellum layer and the use foam tape to adhere the sentiments to each card front.
To finish, I adhered each card front to an A2-sized card base.
