Hello everyone!  Today I have a fun background technique that I saw on Jennifer McGuire's YouTube channel.  It's not a quick technique, but I think the end result is very nice and worth the time.

I started by die cutting the flowers and leaves many times from colored cardstock.  I used a light and dark shade of the blue and green.  I used navy blue cardstock for my background.


Next, comes the fun part!  I glued the large flowers onto the navy cardstock panel first, then filled in the background with leaves and smaller flowers.  Once I was happy with the background I placed it flower side down onto the Pinpoint Leaf Cover Plate Die and ran it through my die cut machine.  This presses the flowers and leaf die cuts into the paper and leaves Pinpoint Leaf image on the card. 


I glued the card front to a white card base using foam tape.

Next, I die cut the word hugs from black cardstock and the shadow from white cardstock.   I die cut the shadow 3 times from white cardstock and glued them together to give the word more dimension.

The butterflies were die cut from vellum, and the sentiment was white heat embossed on a strip of black cardstock.  

To finish the card I added some fairy crystals to the flower centers. 

That's it for today!  Thanks for stopping by and have a great day!
