Specific products used in the cards below will be listed separately at the bottom of the post.

I have two cards to share with you below, along with tips on how the card was created.  All of the supplies used in the cards are listed at the bottom of the post.  For additional samples throughout the month, please follow my Instagram.  

  • I started by taping off the top of my kraft card base, then using Arctic Fox Paper Glaze Luxe through the 6x6 A Whole Lot of Polka Dot Stencil.  The tape was removed, and the card base set aside to dry.  
  • The white panel was made using the Double Stitched Rectangle Dies, using a trick of cutting once, then realigning the die to cut the panel slightly smaller to fit an A2 card.  
  • I added my die cut leaves - starting in the middle of the panel, and laying the pieces out from there.  As you get to the edges, trim as you go, and save the trimmed pieces.  When you have all your whole die cuts laid out, the little trimmings are great for filling in empty areas around the edges.  
  • The die cut sentiment was triple stacked to add some dimension that makes it pop off of the background.  
  • Clusters of Iridescent Moonshine sequins add a little sparkle, as well as filling in areas in the middle of the panel.  

  • I started this card by doing a LOT of die cutting.  I cut the A2 Pierced Blanket Cover Plate Die; along with both the Layering Flora: Leaves and Twigs Dies, and the Layering Flora: Blooming Blossoms Dies.  The hello came from the Slim Line Die Cutting System - Scallop Frames Die Set and was cut multiple times to be layered.  
  • The leaves die cuts had a little bit of shading added using Copic Markers, before I planned the layout.  
  • I used a ball head embossing tool to create some shape on the flowers.  Then I layered flowers together, and added gems from the Sands of Time Gem Mix to the centers.  
  • I laid the floral pieces on my card front, and rearranged until I found a layout I liked.  I snapped a photo of the layout with my phone and then used that photo as reference while I adhered each piece down.  
  • A few sequins from the All About the Pinks Sequin Mix were tucked around the floral spray.  
  • The A2 Card front was added to a card base, by lining up the bottom edge and corners, then working upwards to adhere.  This helps to keep the card front square on the base.
