Time to Craft with Lydia!
Hello there everyone! Happy November Release Day! Lydia here. Today I'll be sharing a card that features tons of texture and dimension. To start I embossed 2 pieces of white cardstock using Whimsy Motif 3D Embossing Folder. I then colored the embossed images using the coordinating Whimsy Motif Simple Coloring Stencils. For the leaves, I used Limestone Ink and for the flowers, I used Rose Quartz, Mountain Mist, and Water Hyacinth Inks. The flower centers were inked with Mid Yellow Ink. When both images were colored I fussy cut around them. For the background, I used the very pretty Honeycomb Daisies Cover Die. This was cut from white cardstock before adding flat to a 4 1/4″ x 5 1/2″ white card base. The fussy-cut images were adhered to the card using Instant Dimension Foam Tape to add depth. The sentiment is from the Timeless Sentiments Layering Die Set. This was cut from gray gradient cardstock, (created by inking a piece of white cardstock with Limestone, Silver Stone, and Industrial Diamond Inks), and Moonstone Glitter Cardstock from Glitter Gradient Cardstock Set – Milky Way. To see how this card came together please watch the video below. Or over on YouTube:
