Today I want to share three cards I have designed featuring the
Blooming Flowers Background die from Paper Rose.
It is really a gorgeous die cut which can look very different depending on how you use it.
For this first card I die cut a bright gelli printed background
made using acrylic paints & Distress oxide inks.
Stamped with the Mixed Media stamp sets from Paper Rose.
I elevated the die cut on a piece of fun foam on the card front.
It is backed with some teal blue cardstock.
The sentiment is from the Beautiful Mandala stamp set.
For this next card I die cut the Blooming Flowers twice from pre coloured cardstock.
I had used pink mica spray to colour my cardstock & then splattered with various other colours.
I trimmed off the border edge of the die so the foliage pieces form the edges.
The result looks like a complete flower in the centre.
I attached these two halves with matte medium just in the central areas so the edges lift off the page.
The background card base was made by splattering a sheet of heavy watercolour paper
with warm coloured distress inks. Yellow through to Red tones.
The Congratulations Layered diecut covered the joining of the two diecut pieces.
My final card was made as a pop up card for Mother's Day.
The front of the card features the Blooming Flowers Background die
angled over the largest Banner 2 diecut cut from textured card.
Gelli printed card was used for the diecut then heat embossed
with Geranium Coral Blush embossing powder from Lindys Stamp Gang.
The varied colours of the background show through the embossing.
The Large Dainty Butterfly die was used repeatedly on the cover & inside of the card
repeating the various choices of cardstock used & embossing on the card.
The Madison Lace die added extra detail to the inside of the card.
The Vintage Letter stamp was used to add subtle texture to the inside of the card.
Thanks for taking the time to read this post.
Hope this gives you some ideas to use your die cuts in different ways.
