Do you like the look of layered die-cut flowers? Today, Therese shares 2 beautiful cards and one very unique way to get a different look!
Hi, it’s Therese here and I am back with some more Orchid cards for you. Did you see my previous post HERE where I share tips for watercoloring Orchids with dye inks? Today, I have something a little different using the Layered Orchid Die – here are my designs!
Technique #1 – Crepe Paper Flowers
Yes, you read that correctly, I used some beautiful Lia Griffith crepe papers to create these Layered Orchids. But I wanted to take it a step further and some depth, this was simple to do using a Mini Ink Blending Tool and some Catherine Pooler Inks.
PRO TIP: I cut 2 layers of crepe paper in one pass of the die cutting machine and used both of these for each flower. This gave it a little extra dimension.
I added an Essential Rectangles border to frame my flowers and a sentiment from the Let’s Chill Combo.
Technique #2 – Cardstock
I wanted to share with you what this same flower would look like die cut from cardstock. I used similar colors and the Concord & 9th cardstocks were perfect for this.
But, this time as well as adding a little shading with the inks yet again, I also added some dimension to the petals by moulding them.
Did you see I used the centre portion of the Essential Rectangle for the background as well as another sentiment from the Let’s Chill Combo.
