A Birthday Card Using Dies and Ghost Ink
by Diana Soling
Hi everyone, Diana here with another fun foiled project. I am having so much fun with these colors that I continued it from my first project on the 7th.
I had some of the cut flowers from my last project (wreath) that I decided to add them to this birthday card. I wanted to use a few of the fun things we received so I chose to use the GHOST INK and STARBURST SENTIMENT stamp set.
Step 1: Chose your design theme. I used a card front design I found on Cricut design space.
Step 2: Cut your different layers in your chosen color scheme.
Step 3: Adhere your layers together. I started with the pink base and added the violet panel then the ruby frame and last the gold scroll.
Step 4:Adhere your cut flowers (or other elements). Once I adhered my flowers I let the glue dry and then I trimmed off the excess that hung over the edges.
Step 5: Using the ghost ink stamp your desired images onto the base foil paper (violet). Let the image dry for a few seconds and then using a paper towel wipe off the ink. It will create a great light background image.
Step 6: Add a sentiment. I used this cute sentiment that I had lying around. I added it under the happy birthday starburst sentiment with some pop dots.
Step 7: Fluff up your flowers to give some added dimension to your card. This will flatten out for mailing so don't worry about having to much dimension.
A closer look at the ghost ink and sentiment. I stamped using a block but I think next time I'm going to give my Misti a try.
A closer look at the dimension you can get with just a quick fold-up of the edges.
