Laurel Leaves Wafer Die
As the sheets are super thin and flimsy, I used double-sided sheets to stick the aluminum onto a piece of thick cardstock and then I die cut the paper.
None of the beautiful mirror cardstock I have in my stash would give such a stunning look and feel to die cuts! PLOP!
Why I didn’t took those sheets out before?
I also wanted to create some watercolour looking die cuts.
- So I applied Peacock Feather and Broken China Distress Inks using an ergonomic blending brush on watercolor paper.
- Then, I splatter it with a mix of water and Dusty Concord Distress Oxide ink + white acrylic paint.
- Next, I die cut the paper using Laurel Leaves Wafer die
After doing all that die-cutting, I then start thinking on the background of my cards and the composition.
Then, I decided to use Simple Patterns Trio Stencil and the same ink colours I used to create the watercolour die cuts (Peacock Feather, Broken China Distress Inks + Dusty Concord Distress Oxide Ink.)
To add dimension, I adhered the Laurel `Leaves on the panel using small circular foam pads.
Simple Patterns Trio Stencil
It was incredibly easy to use Simple Patterns Trio Stencil to create beautiful patterns in the center of the card panels (without the need for masking).
There are 3 stencils in the pack. I only used 2 of the stencils, one with diagonal and one with horizontal stripes.
So we cant deny it, Simple Patterns Trio Stencil is a winner!
Oh and last but not least, I also used Fashion Gold Embellishments. Those are a must have.
I also gold heat embossed mini tags using Love Tokens stamp sets and tiny mini circle dies I got in my stash.
All the cards are C6 size ( 5- 1-2 x 4-1/4 ” inches)
