Dimensional background with die cuts

Hello Everyone,

I am back today with a clean and simple card design using goodies from LDRS Creative. The pretty Peek-a-boo Autumn Breeze background die makes a perfect clean and simple card with the oval cut in the centre for your sentiment. This is such a beautiful die, can easily be the star of the card on its own. To take it to the next level, I will show you a trick.

I started with die cutting this gorgeous background from a specialty gold cardstock. For easy handling I used washi tape to hold the oval die in the middle.  I love dimension on my cards so I die cut the same die another 2 times from dark brown cardstock. I layered them on top of each other and adhered it to a dark brown card base. It looks almost like a decorative chipboard with a golden finish!

Then I die cut the oval from cream cardstock and stamped a sentiment from the Happy Fall stamp set using Coffee Bean Hybrid ink along with 2 little leaves from the same set.

And here comes the second trick: I added some sparkle with a sparkle pen to the coloured leaves and went over the letters of Blessings too. As a finishing touch, I added two lines under the sentiment with the same gold sparkle pen and adhered the oval to the card.

I hope you like today’s inspiration and you will try to stack up your dies for a dimensional look. Until next time, happy crafting!
