Good morning! I have a twofer for you today using some absolutely stunning dies from Birch Press Designs. I used their beautiful floral stamps earlier this week, but these dies are SO gorgeous and incredibly innovative… They’re basically massive layering cover plates. They have a whole series of these dies, with some really lovely graphic designs, but I’ve chosen to work with the Peony Bloom Layer dies. Now, the layers of dies work together to cover an entire A2 card front, but I decided to cut them apart to get two cards out of it! Love versatile products!
To start, I die cut each layer of the Peony Blooms layer dies from different shades of pink, cutting the top layer from some pretty pink glitzy card stock. I layered them all together, then fussy cut the peony corners away from the frame. I die cut the leaves from three different shades of green card stock. I love that in the Peony Blooms die set, the leaves come separate from the rest of the cover plates, so that you can cut them in a different color!
For this first card, I popped up the peony in the corner using dimensional foam adhesive, then stamped the beautiful greeting from Birch Press’s Brushed Birthday stamp set using Altenew’s Industrial Diamond ink and my MISTI.
For my second card, I used a beautiful sentiment set from Papertrey Ink called Pen and Ink. I may have purchased the entire large stamp set just for this one sentiment… I love the idea of “sending paper hugs.” Most of my good friends live in other states, so I have to send them paper hugs the vast majority of the time. I again popped up the peony in the corner using dimensional adhesive, then added the greeting in the opposite corner using Altenew’s Industrial Diamond ink.
The final step was to scatter a few sequins here and there.
And that’s it! Two whole cards made fairly quickly… I think it took me longer to decide where to put the sequins than it did to assemble the die cuts and stamp the sentiments! I love quick and easy cards that still can make an impact! My kiddos are off school tomorrow, so who knows what adventures we will get up to…. 🙂 I hope you’re having a marvelous week!
