A few weeks ago I mentioned I would share a card I made based on CASE’ing a card I saw on Pinterest by Kelly Acheson. Many elements are the same but there are differences if you look close enough.
My first change was flipping the card sideways. I die cut my flourish from Pear Pizzazz cardstock rather than die cutting from the white layer, sponging and re-inserting into the negative space. I used burlap and cut it a bit narrower and tied some thick Whisper White bakers twine around the front layer.
Did you see the fun back ground? You can create fun backgrounds with your intricate dies. Here is a closer look:
First die cut your image that you would like as your background.
Then carefully holding in place on your cardstock, sponge your colour through the open space. I pinch the end of my sponge so that I don’t go outside the die cut.
Shift your die cut and repeat to create a fun pattern.
You’ll end up with your creative background design.
Here’s a close up of the completed card.
I hope you’ll try this simple and versatile technique.
