Hello, Birch Press friends! Today, I am sharing this card that I made completely out of alcohol ink backgrounds. It features the beautiful new Phlox Blooms and Leaves Contour Layers set. I have been dreaming of spring lately, and the colors on this card really make me happy.
I made a bunch of alcohol ink backgrounds a few weeks ago and put them in my stash to be used at a later time. It is so fun to be able to pull them out whenever I am feeling inspired. This particular background is one of my favorites – aren’t the colors dreamy? I trimmed it down with the Pinpoint Contour Plate and adhered it to an A2 card base.
For my flowers, I used a background that I had made with some vivid pink alcohol inks. Yupo paper cuts great with dies. For the second layer of the flowers, I used vellum. I knew I would be covering the center of the flowers, so it was okay to glue the vellum right in the center. The small, top detail was cut from the yellow areas of the panel that I had cut the background from.
I popped the flowers up on the background with foam dots. I then created my sentiment using the Handwritten Thanks and Outline set. I used two different alcohol ink backgrounds to cut the greenish outline layer and the turquoise detail layer out. Once I was done adhering the sentiment to the card base, I embellished the background with Clear Fairy Drops.
Thank you so much for joining us today. I hope this card inspires you and brings a smile to your face!
Wishing you a crafty day,
