Hi crafty friends I am excited to be back up on the Birch Press blog today sharing a fun and colorful card with you using the beautiful die set Wispy Blooms. For today’s card I wanted to create a colorful background to highlight these gorgeous blooms! So let’s get started!
I started today’s card by choosing my color palette! When card making I enjoy creating bright and colorful cards. I love the loose look of these flowers and wanted to highlight them with a colorful background! I chose 2 colors as the main colors for today’s card. I selected a gel print from my stash and then chose the second color for my flowers! I love these 2 colors together! It was now time to start die cutting! I started with the Wispy Blooms die set and Memory Box card stock in 2 color pad families: Sunny Orange and Lush Green. These pads are amazing as the colors all coordinate so well together and the mix of colors is just beautiful! I chose 2 colors of orange from the pad and die cut the flowers several times in both shades of orange. I did the same for the leaves using a green from the Lush Green paper pad from Memory Box.
Next I added some ink to each of my die cuts using several shades of orange dye ink. I love the added dimension the ink gives to the completed look. I applied the ink to the layers using a blending brush. I did the same for the floral stem. Once this was complete, I adhered the flowers together using liquid glue.
Next I chose a panel from my stash to die cut the butterflies and the hello script font. The panel I chose had shades of purple and sparkles. This panel was created using a powder pigment. I die cut 2 butterflies using the Simple Butterflies Contour Layers die set. I die cut a second set of butterflies using the Memory Box Vintage Pearl Mirror Pad, I chose a gold color from the pad. I then adhered the butterflies together using liquid glue. I set these aside.
To complete my card I chose the Big Hello Sugar Script die set. I die cut the shadow layer using white card stock one time, then the inner script hello 3 times for added dimension. I die cut this using white card stock and 1 layer using the same purple panel as the butterflies. I then adhered these together using liquid glue. Next I adhered the gel print background to an A2 card base and adhered the flowers, sentiment, and butterflies using both liquid glue and foam adhesive. I added a bit of sparkle using 2 sets of gems. I used the Winter Fantasy Fairy Gemstones and the Bright Jewels collection.
I had so much fun creating today’s card! I hope you enjoyed it and I will be back soon! Happy Crafting!!!!!
