Today I created a card using the new Simon Says Stamp Folk Dance die cut. It’s a full back ground die cut and I had so many ideas as soon as I saw it. I love the Nordic look to the flowers.
I started by cutting out the die with plain white cardstock. I kept the cut pieces in the die cut and flipped the entire piece over.
I added 3M Scotch Double Sided Foam Adhesive on the entire back of the card panel. It kept the pieces in place while I colored them. I could then peel the backing off when I am ready to add to a cardbase.
Once all the foam tape was added, I flipped the panel over and started coloring with my Copics. It was very sloppy coloring, I did not worry about staying in the lines.
I used Y13 and Y17 for the center of the flowers and the dots above the pink flowers. For the leaves and the stems, I used G28, YG17 and YG03. For the blue flowers, I used B02 and B16. For the pink flowers, I used RV55, RV19 and RV66. I used R29 for the red berries.
As you can see, I was not careful with my coloring. I knew I was going to be covering this up. I used Bazzil navy blue cardstock for the background cover. I cut it with the Folk Dance Die as well. I used my Zig glue pen to attach the cardstock cover over the colored background.
I stamped a sentiment from the Simon Says Stamp Take Heart stamp set with Versamark ink on Vellum and embossed it with Wow white embossing powder. I cut down the sentiment and attached it to the card panel. I felt like it didn’t need anything else so I called it a day.
I also made a version using yellows instead of pink for the flowers. I am really happy with how these turned out.
Thanks for stopping by today. I can’t believe it is August!
