Hello everyone! Rosemary here on the blog today and I’m sharing another mixed media type card that I created using the new Forest Canopy Layer die set along with a sentiment from the Memory Box Open Studio Gracious Florals stamp and die bundle.
The new Forest Canopy Layers die set is just gorgeous and there are so many ways that it can be used. I guess I went with a little more of a fallish feel for my card. I used lots and lots of distress sprays and mica sprays for the different layers. You can see all the sprays I used in the next photo.
After I created all my panels with the different sprays I let them dry. Once dry there were die cut with the different layering dies. I also created the blue background panel and then die cut that with a rectangle die that fits exactly behind the Forest Canopy layers!
There are dies in the Forest Canopy Layers set that die cut all the little berries and layering leaf pieces. I used liquid adhesive to adhere those to the layer “A” die cut that I had cut from a panel that was sprayed with a walnut stain and Burning Embers distress mica spray to give the look of the branches. Adhering all the layers together can be a bit tricky, but I have a tip to share that will make it much easier. I use my scoring tool to help with alignment.
I placed the blue background panel in the corner of my scoring tool, apply liquid adhesive to the back of each layer and then carefully place each layer on top. Using liquid adhesive is also helpful in these instances as it gives you a little bit of time to make sure that you have everything lined up. Once I had all my layers adhered I used the scoring tool to add the piece to my card base, as well.
I finished off the card with a sentiment from the Gracious Floral stamp set that I heat embossed using good embossing powder on vellum cardstock. I wanted the sentiment to stand out against all the layers of berries and leaves, but also not take away from the layers! I thought using vellum cardstock worked perfectly!
I hope you enjoyed today’s project. Thanks for stopping by and have a lovely day!
