Hello, friends! It’s Channin here with a video demonstrating how I created this full panel floral card with some of the new dies and stamps from the January My Monthly Hero Kit.
I knew it was going to take a lot of flowers and leaves to fill out this card front so I needed a way to color the die cuts that was faster than markers or watercolors. I decided use ink blending and I so glad I did! I love the soft gradations and shifts of color which were so easy to achieve with this method! Please check out the video below to see the whole process.
(If you are having trouble viewing this video, please try watching it HERE on YouTube.)
First, I die cut several flowers, leaves, and butterflies using the dies from the January My Monthly Hero Kit out of Dove White cardstock. I then ink blended the die cuts with several reactive inks (Blue Hawaii, Pool Party, Blue Raspberry, Key Lime Fizz, Lemon Drop, Creamsicle, Fruit Punch, Taffy) using tiny blending brushes.
Next, I arranged the die cuts over an A2 panel of acetate. Once I had all the die cuts arranged the way I like I then several placed large pieces of painters tape over the die cut to hold everything in place. I then removed the acetate, flipped the taped panel of die cuts over and added foam squares to the backside.
Next, I trimmed an A2 panel of Arctic cardstock down to 4” x 5.25” and adhered it onto an A2 top-folding white card base. I then removed the backing on the foam squares and stuck the die cuts down onto the card front.
Next, I stamped a sentiment from the stamp set included in the kit in embossing ink and then gold heat embossed it. I then finished the card by die cutting the sentiment with die from the kit and added it to the card front with foam tape.
I hope you enjoyed today’s card and video! Thank you so much for stopping by!
