Welcome everyone! Today I’m over on the Birch Press Design blog with this pair of cards featuring the Enchantment layering dies and the Crystal Lingo stamps and coordinating dies. I had a fun idea I wanted to try after being inspired by my friend Ellen earlier this week and instead of having waste, I made 2 cards!
My original idea was to die cut the three layers for the Enchantment layers but omit the middle arch like I did on the card on the left, but I couldn’t just waste those pieces so I went ahead and cut just that middle part a second time and created another card!
My friend Ellen inspired me this week by using Thermoweb Deco Foil Flock for her Birch Press layers and I thought it looked so cool that I wanted to try it out. For today’s card, I used green flock, a pink textured cardstock for the middle layer and a smooth rose colored cardstock for the top layer.
On this first card, I didn’t want the background layer to be stark so I did a little ink smooshing on a panel and adhered it to a white card base. Then I adhered the Enchantment layers together and on to the card. I stamped, heat embossed and cut out the sentiment from the Crystal Lingo set and used a combination of foam squares and liquid glue to adhered them down. For finishing touches I used pearl baubles from Twiddler’s Nook to give some shiny accents around the design.
For the second card, I blended tattered rose and dried marigold distress oxide inks on a panel, spritzed it with water and flicked some pearl watercolor on it. Once it was dry, I trimmed it down to 4×5.25 inches and popped it up with foam strips on a white card base. I adhered my Enchantment ring and then the sentiment just like the first card. I used the pearl baubles from Twiddler’s Nook on this card as well, just in a different way scattering them across the design randomly.
These colors are so pretty and have me wishing for sunshiny warm days and being outside!
I appreciate you sharing your time with me. Have a fabulous day!
