Hello, friends! Dilay here and I am back to share a clean and simple card that I created using one of my favorite dies: the ‘Kinsley Layer Set’. However this time, I used it a bit differently – I only used one layer! By using just the first layer, I was able to create an intricate background easily and quickly!

To get started, I cut multiple shades of teal cardstock (you can use any color for this step) into thin strips. I then used tape runner to adhere the strips onto a piece of white cardstock to create a background design to later die cut. I then set this aside to dry and started on the next step.

For the background of the card, I cut a piece of heavyweight white cardstock to an A2 size base (5.5” x 4.25”) as the panel. Next, I die cut only the ‘Kinsley Layer A’ die 3 times in white cardstock and adhered the 3 onto the panel in a design that I liked, trimming off any extra.

I then die cut the same die 3 more times from silver glitter cardstock and used the negative pieces to fill in the center portions of the ‘flower’, adhering them with liquid adhesive. I set that aside to dry.

Next, I die cut the ‘Big Friend Sugar Script Die’  using the teal strip design sheet, and once again in white to adhere behind it for added stability and extra dimension. Finally, once the layers dried, I adhered the the sentiment onto the base and added silver flat bobbles to the center of the flowers.

This technique is great if you’re looking to stretch your dies or create something a little more subtle. You can recreate this card with just about any layer die and color!

I hope you you enjoyed my post today and found some inspiration!
