Hi Crafty friends! I am excited to be back today sharing a colorful thank you card using the beautiful Star Flowers Contour Layers die set!!!!! So let’s get started!
I started today’s card with the beautiful Star Flowers Contour Layers die set! I love these beautiful flowers! I started by die cutting my flowers using 2 shades of blue card stock from the Memory Box Fresh Aqua Collection paper pad. I chose a lighter blue and a darker blue. I love these paper pads as all the colors coordinate so beautifully together! I die cut enough to make 8 flowers. I then chose a yellow shade for the floral center using the Sunny Orange paper pad from Memory Box. Once everything was die cut I added a bit of shading to each floral layer using distress oxide inks. I then adhered the layers together using liquid glue. I then added embossing powder to each flower for added texture and dimension. I pressed the flower into my embossing ink, sprinkled with embossing powder, and then heat set. I then set my flowers aside.
Next I started to work on my background. To create my background I used the Viola Plate layering dies. I used both layer B and C. I die cut each layer on white card stock. Next I wanted to add color to Layer B. I used a yellow shade of dye ink and ink blended on my panel using a blending tool. Next I added 2 colors of sprays for added shine and texture. I allowed this to dry and once dry, I added gold and silver metallic watercolor splatters for added texture. Once everything was dry, I adhered layer B and C of the Viola die cuts together using liquid glue.
Next I used my distress tool to add texture to the edge of the die cut panel. I added texture to various sections. Then I used an archival ink in brown around the outer section of my Viola panel. I then adhered the Viola panel to an A2 card base with liquid glue.
I then adhered my flowers to the front of my card panel. I used a combination of liquid glue and foam adhesive. To complete my card I added the Handwritten Thanks and Outline die. I die cut the shadow using white card stock and the script thanks using the Rainbow Reflections Mirror Pad card stock. I then adhered the sentiment together with liquid glue and added foam tape to the back and added this to my card front.
Thank you for stopping by today! I had a lot of fun today and I will be back soon!
