Hello Birch Press friends! This is Sandhya here with a fresh card to send warm wishes. It is kind of festive, more winter-like. I used the Forest Leaf and Berries Contour Layers and The Forest Canopy Layer C die sets for this card. For the sentiment, I grabbed the Warm Wishes Vintage Sentiment die.
I started by die-cutting all the pieces from the Forest Leaf And Berries Die set out of watercolor paper. Next, I used Distress Spray Stains and Distress Mica stains to color the pieces. For the smaller pieces like the berries, it is easier to use tweezers and dip them into a buddle of color and then lay them out on a craft mat to dry.
For the delicate branch, I used an ink blending tool and dabbed over it with Ground Expresso Distress Ink. Once all the colored pieces were dry, I assembled the berries and leaves per the instruction leaflet.
Next I die-cut the Forect Canopy Laver C out of Watercolor cardstock 2 times. I adhered the 2 layers together to create more dimension and then adhered it down on a white A2 card base. Then, I die-cut my sentiment and placed it towards the entre of the background.
Finally, I arranged the berry clusters and leaves around the sentiment and adhered them down with liquid adhesive. I also added a few flatback pearl embellishments to tie it all together. While it is hard to see the shimmer in the pictures, this card is a lot more shiny and attractive in real life.
This brings us to the end of today’s post. Thank you so much for stopping by and I hope to be back soon with more new card ideas.
