Anything Goes With Dies | Missing You

Hello everyone… Today, I have a card to share with you all. I am inspired by the Spring season is heading our way.

On my card I used the Bloomtangled #1 Cover Plate Die to created the background. I added a watecolored panel on the back of the die cut. For the sentiment, I cut out a black cardstock using the Missing You Phrase Die. I added the layered dragonfly die cut that I cut out the white cardstock and pink cardstock using the Dragonfly Layering Die Set. I also added some pink sequins to embellish the card.

I made this card for the Happy Little Stampers – March Anything Goes With Dies Challenge.

I hope you all can join us this month. Thank you so much for stopping by today. Have wonderful day.

I cut out the leaves and word using the svg files and with my Silhouette Cameo. And then, I applied the surfaces with VersaMark ink pad and then I added the glitter embossing powder. I heat them up with craft heater. I did the embossing twice for thicker result.

For the background, I printed one of the patterned digital papers on 4×5 glossy photo paper and added on the white card with permanent adhesive runner. After that, I added the watercolored flower, embossed leaves, and embossed sentiment word on the card with dries-clear adhesive glue.

I printed the image on a watercolor paper using inkjet printer. I colored it with Tombow Dual Brush Pens and Water brush. I Added some white splatters with white acrylic paint spray. Then I dried it with craft heater and fussy cut it with scissors.

To create the shaker windows, I use the STAMPlorations Basic A2 Panels Nesting Dies – CUTplorations. I added the shaker frame on a white card with 3D foam tape. For the filler, I added each of the Sparkles Glitter at the each window.

I added the sentiment on top of the shaker window with permanent adhesive glue and the flower on the card with the 3D foam tape.
