I love everything about this card. The embossed stencil background, black ink splatters, color layered floral die-cut, gold script word die-cut, and the black sentiment banner! I seriously can't get enough of this cardmaking formula. I started by mixing some Texture Paste and Glimmer Paste and applying them over the Square Weave Pattern Stencil to partial areas of an A2 size 110 lb white cardstock. Then I let my panel air dry for about 10-15 minutes.
After that, I stamped my flowers and leaves from the Build-A-Flower: Cattleya Stamp Set using Altenew Crisp Dye Ink Pads on a piece of white cardstock. Here is the list of ink colors I used for stamping:
- Flowers: Rose Quartz, Puffy Heart, Purple Wine
- Leaves: Bamboo, Parrot, Moss
I die cut my image using the Build-A-Flower: Cattleya Die Set and my die cutting machine. Then I mounted my die-cut flower spray on the card front using 3M foam tape to give some dimension.
After that, I die cut “congrats” 5 times out of Jet Black Cardstock from the Signature Words Die Set using my Mini Blossom Die Cutting Machine. Then I adhered my die-cuts together using a glue pen to achieve a chipboard effect.
After cutting out my sentiment into a banner using a craft knife and ruler, I mounted the sentiment banner and die cut congrats on the card front using 3M foam tape to finish off my card.
While all of my supplies were out, I made one more card using the same design, but with a different color combo. This time I used the Deco Wallpaper Stencil to create the embossed background.
- Flowers: Buttercream, Warm Sunshine, Caramel Toffee
- Leaves: Frayed Leaf, Forest Glades, Evergreen
Here are a couple of tips on how to fix your mistake on the heat-embossed sentiment on the black cardstock. Just use a white gel pen to go over the white-embossed areas to connect the lines and fill in the missing parts.
For the melted white stray powder, you can simply cover it using a black pen.
I made a video tutorial to show you how to create my card from start to finish. You can watch it above or in HD on YouTube.
