Hello and welcome! Seeka here and today I have a card featuring the Arista Layers die set. I consistently come back to this set, it’s one of my favorites from Birch Press Design!

I started off by selecting four shades of teal cardstock (the colors in the Fresh Aqua 6×6 cardstock pad are a good option). I cut each of the three Arista layers from the three lightest shades of teal and then cut a solid circle from the darkest shade of teal. I layered and glued the three die cut pieces together and then glued the solid circle to the bottom.

Next, I created the sentiment by cutting the detail layer of the Handwritten Hello and Outline die set from mirror cardstock (check out the Vintage Pastel Mirror 6×6 cardstock pad for good options). Then, I adhered it to the shadow layer which I cut from vellum. I glued the two layers together and then glued the sentiment to the Arista medallion.

For the background, I dropped a few drops of several shades of teal acrylic paint onto a craft mat. I spritzed the paint with clean water and then dragged several 4.25″ x 5.5″ panels of white cardstock through the paint. By the third panel, only a few drops of paint remained on the craft mat and instead of dragging the panel through the paint, I used it to blot up the drops which created this splattered look. I used this panel for the card, saving the other two for future projects.

To assemble the card, I trimmed a quarter inch off each end of the background and then used foam tape to adhere it to a cardbase. Last, I adhered the medallion and sentiment.

Thank you so much for visiting!
