Hello, Friends! Today I am sharing this card featuring the new Pimpernel Contour Layers die set with a vintage inspired color combination. This card is part of our current Instagram Hop! If you haven’t yet participated in the hop, click here to head over to Instagram for your chance at winning one of our new floral layering die sets. Comments close today (Tuesday) March 22 11:59 pm EST, so there is still time!
I started my card by dry embossing the Flora Plate Layer C die onto a panel of teal card stock. I then inked up part of the panel with some darker teal ink in order to create a glow in the center. I splattered the panel with gold paint and then adhered it to a parchment colored A2 card base.
I used the Pimpernel die to cut the two main parts of the flower from a light orange card stock. I inked the top layer with a darker orange ink and then inked the edges of the bottom layer with white pigment ink to create a bit more contrast. I used gold foil card stock for the small middle piece of the flower, the top layer of the leaves, and the “hello” sentiment. To give the flowers even more dimension, I used a stylus tool and popped them up on foam tape.
Thank you so much for joining us today. I hope this card brings a smile to your face.
Wishing you a crafty day,
