Hello again, crafty friends. Today’s card features repeat die cutting to create a background…
To create this card, I die-cut the Stained Glass Bird die four times from a white A2 cardstock panel. I left three of the birds all white. For the fourth opening, I removed all the white pieces and used the Stained Glass bird stencil to do some ink blending on the card base behind the die-cut panel. I die-cut the Stained Glass Bird die from black glossy cardstock and adhered the outline of the bird on top of the ink blending.
I applied the same ink to my glass mat and spritzed it with water. I picked up the ink with my paintbrush and flicked on the color to the background for some added interest. I finished off the panel with a sentiment from the Spring in my Step stamp set as well as a sub sentiment from the Reverse Encouraging Words Sentiment strips.
I die-cut a gold heart using the Mini Hearts Party die to adhere to the bird as well as a black gem for the eye.
I also used the same colors of ink to ink blend on the flap of the envelope…
I spritzed on drops of water on the envelope flap for added texture.
I hope this has inspired you to do repeat die-cutting to create a background.
Thank you so much for stopping by. Have a great day!
