Hello! It’s Seeka here and today I have a card featuring ink blending and the pretty Fiori Plate Layer dies.

I confess that I forgot to take in-progress photos so I sincerely apologize! That said, this card was very simple to put together so I think it will be easy for you to follow along.

I started by blending six colors of Distress Oxide inks onto an A2-sized panel of Strathmore Bristol Smooth cardstock. I didn’t set out to use six colors, but as I played around, I added more colors. From top to bottom they are: Scattered Straw, Carved Pumpkin, Twisted Citron, Cracked Pistachio, Peacock Feathers, and Faded Jeans.

When the panel was dry, I used the Fiori Plate Layer A die to die cut it. Then I used the Fiori Plate Layer B to die cut three pieces of heavyweight white cardstock. I stacked and andhered these three Layer B die cuts together and then adhered the ink-blended Layer A on top.

For the sentiment, I stamped a couple of sentiments from the You Are Awesome stamp set onto a strip of white cardstock. Then I used foam tape to adhere the sentiment strip to a slightly larger piece of vellum.

To assemble the card, I adhered the sentiment to the die cut background and then adhered that, in turn, to an A2-sized card base.
