Hello! There are so many great ways to create dimension on your cards and today I'm excited to show off the fabulous new [hero_product_link sku="DI159" text="Paper Layering Mum Flower Die"] that brings dimension to a whole new level!
To create the card, I die cut the Paper Layering Mum from a circle piece of watercolor paper just slightly larger than my flower. Next, I used my Zig Clean Color Real Brush Markers to create a gradient of color from the center of the circle outwards. I simply scribbled directly on the paper with the markers and then used a water brush to blend the colors together. I loved how the color seeped into the creases of the die cut petals to add a bit of darker color around the edges.
Once it was completely dry, I used a Wink of Stella Clear Glitter Brush and a white colored pencil to add a bit of detail to each petal. It doesn't show up the best in the photo, but in real life it makes the petals pop!
Next, I adhered the flower to a square card base, making sure not to put any glue behind the petals that I wanted to pop up. Then I cut tiny pieces of foam adhesive and tucked them behind the outer two layers of petals. You can also just curl the petals out with a stylus, but I'm sending this card though the mail and I wanted to make sure the petals stayed fluffy.
I finished the card off with a message from the must-have [hero_product_link sku="CL954" text="Many Everyday Messages set"] and a bit of gold thread behind the message banner.
Thank for stopping by today!
