Today I am back with another design team project for Birch Press Design PLUS a GIVEAWAY! How exciting! Valentine’s Day is right around the corner and Birch Press has designed a great release to celebrate!
The Adora Layering Die set is perfect to show someone how special they are with all the hearts to go around!
I knew I wanted to create a distress oxide background, so I grabbed three of my favorite colors and had fun ink smooshing onto my bristol cardstock! I started with my worn lipstick and then used my aged mahogany. For some final touches I added some ground espresso splatters… because when does a background not need those right?
Once that was completed I set it aside so it could dry.
Now to all the die cutting! I used my white card stock and cut each of the Adora layers and three sets of my sentiment, we will get to that shortly!
Once all my die cuts were completed I layered then all together starting with layer B onto layer C and finally layer A onto B and C. I then used one of the dies to create a cut out in my background.
For my sentiment I used the Big Lingo Type HUGS die. What I love about this die set is you have options… You get three ways to give HUGS! An outline, solid, or just the letters, what could be better!
I layered three of the solid of the sentiments together and then added two of the outlines to the top of the base. I love this look and the possibilities are endless on how you could dress this sentiment up!
I grabbed my liquid adhesive and adhered my background panel to my standard A2 size card base and then set my Adora Mandela in the cut out. I love this look… These dies create an illusion to the eye, is the focal point going into the card or coming out of the card?...
I then adhered my sentiment to the bottom right hand corner.
