Hello Birch Press friends, I am so excited to be back on the blog today sharing a few favorite floral die sets. On today’s card I used the Morning Rose and Triple Buds Contour Layers, Tropical Hibiscus, and the Fuddled Leaf Branches die sets. I had fun creating today’s card, so let’s get started!
I started today’s card by choosing my color palette using 2 paper pads from Memory Box: Sunny Orange and Fresh Aqua. I chose 2 shades of aqua and 3 shades of orange. I then started die cutting the leaves from the Tropical Hibiscus Contour Layers and the Fuddled Leaf Branches Contour Layers die sets. Next I die cut the florals using the Morning Rose and Triple Buds Contour Layers die set using the orange shades of card stock.
Once all the layers of flowers and leaves were die cut I added texture using Distress Oxide inks. I love adding ink blending to add more texture to the die cuts. Once I was happy with the ink blending, I added more texture using shimmer sprays. I then set these aside to dry. Once all the layers were dry, I adhered them together using liquid glue.
Next I used 2 different shimmer sprays to create a background. Once all the layers were dry, I ran the inked background through my die cutting machine with the Memory Box 3D Geometric Crystals embossing folder. To add a bit more texture I added ink and distress crayons to the raised areas of the dry embossed background.
Next trimmed the panel using my paper trimmer then distressed the edges using my scissors. I then adhered the panel to an A2 card base. I then adhered the leaves, floral buds, and rose to the card front using foam tape and liquid glue. I completed the card using a sentiment strip from my stash.
I had so much fun creating today’s card! I love these florals from Birch Press! They are so fun and easy to use! I hope you enjoyed today’s card. I will be back soon with more crafty inspiration!
