Birch Press Design – Enchantment Meets Crystal Lingo

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!
