These two cards have so much texture it's incredible! Let's start with the backgrounds. I like to start with my "wet mediums" that will take some time to dry so that I can work on the other parts of my card in the mean time. It makes me feel like I'm getting more done at once! Haha! I wanted to create some greenery to go with the Blossom Buddies Toner Card Fronts, so I grabbed the Leafy Greens Stencil from Miss Ink Stamps, sprayed the back with Pixie Spray, and used my Stencil Pal to spread Deco Foil Transfer Gel DUO over the stencil. I repeated the process on a second piece of cardstock so that I could make two cards at once and set the panels to the side to dry for a few hours.
You'll know when the Deco Foil Transfer Gel DUO is dry because it will turn clear and be only slightly tacky. Let's add some fuzzy texture! I placed a piece of Green Envy Deco Foil Flock fuzzy side down into the DUO Gel and ran it through my die cutting machine to Flock into the stenciled design. I LOVE the raised texture!
I used one of each of the Blossom Buddies Slim Line Toner Card Fronts for my cards. I foiled the rose buds design with Orange Sketch Brutus Monroe Foil Transfer Sheets and the bursting bouquet pattern with Lilac Deco Foil. I used Deco Foil Parchment Paper and placed the foil onto my toner sheets pretty side up and ran them through my laminator.
I wanted to add even more texture and Flock to my card, so I die cut frames using the LDRS Creative Slim Line Scallop Die Set from Sunshine Yellow and Think Pink Deco Foil Flock Transfer Sheets. Did you know you can die cut Flock just like paper?! I also cut the "happy" sentiment from the same colors of Flock using the My Favorite Things Happy Birthday Script Die.
I started adding the frames and the die cut sentiments with iCraft Ultra Bond Liquid Adhesive and then stamped and cut out small sentiment strips from the Pink & Main Spring Sentiments Stamp Set and added them on top with iCraft 3D Foam Strips.
I hope you love these Mother's Day cards! There is SO much texture and shine on them! Thanks for stopping by and I'll see you soon!
