When I Count my Blessings
Posted on October 10 2018
Good morning friends. Alanna here and as always, I am super excited to be sharing a fun project with you on the LDRS Creative blog today.
For my card today, I thought I would do a bit of alcohol ink blending with some foil bits added to my background. I absolutely love the feel and texture of this panel.
After my panel was complete, I ran it through my die cutting machine with the largest die from the Sunburst Rectangle die collection. This die is absolutely so much fun because it creates such a fun pattern.
I'm also thinking it would be fun to use this die and inlay the little dots back in using a rainbow pattern.
I also ran the Sunburst Rectangle die again through my machine with 3 pieces of plain white card stock. I did this so that my card would have a bit of dimension without having to add small bits of foam tape behind all of the circles.
I simply adhered all the die cuts together with liquid glue and then added my alcohol inked piece on the top.
It is now time to start embellishing my card. I wanted to pull out the super fun Fancy Flower dies. I love the fun shapes of these and that you get solid flowers as well as ones with some designs cut into them so you can achieve a great layering affect.
I also decided it would be fun to create the leaf die cuts out of some felt for added texture and dimension.
I added a gold heat embossed sentiment that is from the Happy Fall stamp set released a couple of weeks ago. I absolutely adore this sentiment and can't wait to make more cards using it to send to friends and family.
Thanks for visiting and crafty hugs!
