I started off by painting white heat embossing our Folk Art Florals 6×6 background stamp onto a watercolor panel. Next I added a rainbow of watercolors (Schmincke and Winsor & Newton paints) onto the panel. I made sure to blend each color into each other for a smooth transition. As the panel was drying, I die cut my Birthday word dies from a separate piece of cardstock. Then I blended some Cali Blue Dye Ink onto the bottom portion of the die cuts to get some smooth and light color onto my sentiment. If you watched the video, you saw me blend Parisian Blue dye ink onto the cardstock prior to die cutting. I wasn’t satisfied by the amount of color on it after the words were cut out so that’s why I blended the additional Cali Blue after die cutting.
I added stitching to the edges of my painted panel with the largest die in our Double Stitched Rectangle Dies. Next I die cut a circle using the third smallest dies in our Double Stitched Round Dies. Then I stamped the roses from our Scripty Greetings set. I used our Peach Blossom Dye, Coralline Hybrid, Hollywood Star Dye, Cosmopolitan Pink Hybrid and Bright Fern Dye inks to stamp the florals. Then I adhered the florals into a mini wreath at the top of my round window. Next I adhered the word dies over the window. Before I adhere the painted panel onto an A2 side folding cardbase, I applied some of our Silver Holographic adhesive paper behind the window. Lastly, I embellished my card with our Silver Holographic sequins!
