ACLD - Layered Fluffy Flowers

Saturday, September 5, 2020
Oh happy day everyone!!

I am sharing a HELLO card I made using a layering stencil and a die.  Very minimal products used!

OK let's get started ... I started with a Midnight colored A2 card base. I cut down a Mushroom colored card front to 4" x 5.25".  Here is where the magic will happen. First I used the Fluffy Flower Base I stenciled it with Ranger Glacier Pigment Ink. Make sure you let it dry well or it will smear all over.  I think I let mine dry for an hour, but it doesn't take quite that long. From there I layered the Fluffy Flower Middle next on top of the white. I used Concord & 9th Honeysuckle Ink.  And Finally I used the last layer; Fluffy Flower Top in Concord & 9th Midnight Ink. The reason these are so vibrant is because you need the base layer of white first, otherwise your colors will get lost in the dark card stock. I glued the stenciled piece to my card base. From there I die cut my hello 5 times from the Concord & 9th Midnight card stock. I used double sided adhesive on the back of my hello's before I die cut them so I could easily layer them on top of each other and not have a mess trying to glue them together. Since this die does not have a shadow die with it; I decide to run it through my Scan N Cut and cut a shadow that way ... didn't it turn out great?? I layered everything together and added it to my card front ... and voila ... card complete!

BUT ... here is a little secret that has been a game changer for me. On one of my die cut hello's I put the double sided adhesive on both sides, meaning ... I put the double sided adhesive on both sides before I cut it. I do this so that this is my bottom layer and can stick to the die cut and the card front.  No messy glue to be seen through the vellum.

So the hello has two bottom layers, the vellum, and the remaining three layers on top of the vellum.  It really adds dimension to the card. 

Here is one more look at the full card.  I just love how the white makes the flowers really pop off the page. This card makes me smile every time I look at it! Might just have to keep this one! 

Thank you for spending some of your crafty time with me!!

Until next time ... hugs & inky fingers!
