I was totally inspired by an orange popsicle for this card! I wanted to really make the Orange Glow color pop and have it be the focal point of my card. What I really love about the Neon Collection from Rina K Designs is that all of the products (Electro-Pop ink, Flock Transfer Sheets, Enamel Transfer Sheets, and Glitz Glitter Gel) are all bright and vibrant, but are slightly different in color and you can really see it on this card! The Electro-Pop Ink is lighter than the Enamel Transfer Sheets, which is lighter than the Flock Transfer Sheets, but they are all that GORGEOUS Orange Glow color! I took advantage of the slight variations in color so that I could "stack" the Electro-Pop Ink, Flock Transfer Sheets, and Enamel Transfer Sheets on top of each other without all the colors running together!
I started by creating my striped background. I love using iCraft Easy Tear Tape to create backgrounds because there's no drying time! I'm an impatient crafter, so double sided adhesives are my best friends! I used 1/2" iCraft Easy Tear Tape and added stripes to my card base at 3/4" increments. I left the adhesive backing in place and inked the stripes between the tape lines. I did this before adding the Flock Transfer Sheets so that if I made a mistake and got ink where I didn't want it I could just wipe it off of the backer sheets instead of having it permanently on my Flocked stripes. I did a direct to paper technique - just used one of the flat edges of the Orange Glow Electro-Pop Ink to swipe some yummy Orange Glow ink onto my card between the iCraft Easy Tear Tape stripes.
The Electro-Pop Inks are dye inks so there is little to no dry time (another bonus for me! haha!!) After I applied the Orange Glow ink stripes I removed the backing from the iCraft Easy Tear Tape and added a piece of Deco Foil Orange Glow Neon Flock Transfer Sheet flock side DOWN into the adhesive and ran it through my die cutting machine. When I peeled back the Flock backer sheet I had such pretty Orange Glow textured and flocked stripes mixed with the Orange Glow Electro-Pop ink stripes!
I wanted to keep the focus on the Orange Glow Neon Flock stripes, so I added some simple elements onto my background using Deco Foil Double Sided Foam Adhesive Sheets. For the leafy element I added heavyweight white cardstock onto a piece of a Foam Adhesive Sheet and die cut it with the Leaf Canopy die from Altenew. What's great about these Foam Adhesive Sheets is that they are double sided, so all I had to do to adhere the leafy element to my card was peel away the backing and adhere it to my card. The adhesive is strong and will hold tight to the Neon Flock stripes. I used another piece of a Foam Adhesive Sheet and added a piece of an Orange Glow Neon Enamel Transfer Sheet on top and die cut it with a "thanks" die. Even though this die is fairly intricate you can see how BEAUTIFULLY the Enamel Transfer Sheet and Foam Adhesive Sheet die cut! I finished the card by adding the "thanks" die cut sentiment to the center of my card. I hope you love this yummy creamsicle inspired card using Rina K Designs Orange Glow products as much as I do!
