I had an unique chance to work with newest Floral Cover dies (die A and die B). And I made two different cards with the same design. I used both dies to create the layering and dimensions on my cards. Another common thing for them — the sentiment made with Label Love stamp set. I only tried different ways of coloring the layers. I couldn’t decide which way is better… to make darker the top layer or the bottom? What do you think?
The first card is the shaker — the first thing I think of when we talk about beautiful detailed dies. I cut two panels of the white card stock (one for each of die A and die B). Then I sponged them with Altenew Crisp inks — I used greens for leaves and reds for the flowers. With green Tombow Dual Brush pens I added some details to leaves — wanted to know how they look with them.
Then I adhered one panel to another and added the transparency as the bottom layer. The card base is sponged with the inks too. I also sprinkled it with the water. Then added the sequins and finished the creating of the shaker.
At the end I added the stamped with the black inks sentiment. Here the top layer is the darker one.
For the second card I made the bottom layer darker then the top one. But I used another technique for building the card. With Floral Cover die B and partial die cutting technique I cut the panel directly on the card base. And sponged it with the inks. With die A I cut another panel and colored it too (just masked the edges to get the white frame).
Then I adhered the top panel to the card base (with the prepared and colored die cutting) and finished the card with the sentiment and some clear crystals. The card looks fabulous and you can see the inner part through the card!
Have a great day! Your next stop is Lydia Fiedler‘s blog!
