Hello and welcome! I'm popping in with a card for four different challenges, finally using my new Lovely Layers Peony die set!
I went down the left column (birthday, slimline, die cut/punch) for Ann's Tic Tac Toe Challenge, as I knew a slimline birthday card would work well with the large die cut blooms, which were colored in pinks to go with Carol's photo challenge at JUGS. Plus, die cuts also for the ATSC and finally a stenciled background for the STB challenge.
I just love it when you have a vision and it all works out, because quite honestly, it doesn't always for me lol! The flower petals and leaves were all die cut from white card stock, then ink blended with several inks to achieve this blend. Originally I was going for pink with yellow edges on the petals but then on one I accidently blended the lightest pink over the yellow and loved the peachy color it created, so I went with it! Of course, since it's ink blending each petal varies in coor, but the end result with these layering dies is amazing.
Pink was added to a white panel using the Fanfare stencil, trimmed down, then adhered to the back of the slimline scallop frame, which had been die cut twice and layered for a bit of dimension. That piece was layered on a fuchsia panel and added to the card base. I arranged the flowers and leaves, leaving room for the foiled sentiment, then adhered everything, including a few antique gold sequins. As you can imagine, there's lots of dimension on this card with the layered die cut flowers, so I'm sure it will end up being mailed in a box or padded envelope if not hand delivered.
I'm so glad you took time to stop by! Take care and happy crafting!
