Hi friends! Happy Sunday! Please join me in welcoming back special monthly guest Cheiron Brandon back to the blog for a sparkly and fun card idea that could be used for a plethora of occasions including support, birthday, get well, and MORE with this sparkly bloom at the center! Read on to learn more about how it’s made, and enjoy!
Hello there crafty friends! It’s Cheiron Brandon here and I am thrilled to be back sharing a fun card using Tim Holtz products. I could not wait to try out the new Tim Holtz Sizzix Blossom die…it is such a big and beautiful flower. I wanted to make a clean and simple (but still very special) card for a friend. Since I stocked up on the Seasonal Idea-ology Deco Sheets I wanted to find ways to use them in projects all year long. If you have not used these before, they are gorgeously sparkly adhesive backed sheets, and the glitter does not come off at all. Since the sheets are thin, I like to peel these sheets off and stick them to card stock before die cutting.
You do not need to use the entire sheet to make your project. I plan out which color I want to use on each of my pieces by laying the dies on top of the sheet and just cutting out the around the die to get the pieces that I need. Then I adhere them to a piece of cardstock for die cutting. I cut the Blossom from red and purple, using the orange and yellow for the center. For the leaf, I used green and black. I adhered the Blossom together using some Distress Collage Medium.
To give the card a bit of texture, I cut a panel of Distress Watercolor cardstock to 3 ¾ x 5 and then embossed it using the new Dotted Multi Level Texture Fades Embossing Folder. I added the panel to a 4 ¼ x 5 ½ card base. Then I adhered the leaves to the panel and adhered the Blossom with some foam adhesive. To keep the card simple, I added a sentiment from the Noteworthy stamp set that was embossed in white on Distress Black Heavy stock to make it pop. I can’t wait to try out other color combos with this die, and to use my Deco Sheets with other die cuts too!
Thanks so much for stopping by, and thanks to Cheiron for being our guest!
