Hello and welcome back! I’m so glad you stopped by! Today’s project is featuring the new Blossom Vine from Simon’s latest release, Dream Big. I always love floral die cuts and this one was no exception! Let’s get into the details, shall we?
To start, I die cut the SSS Blossom Vine a bunch of times from Neenah Classic Crest 110lb cardstock. A bunch meaning eight times maybe. Then I pulled out an assortment of rainbow colored cardstock and die cut the floral from all of those as well. Yes, lots of die cutting! But, I do love making my own backgrounds using die cuts.
Once all of those were cut, I adhered them together using liquid glue, offsetting them just slightly so that you could see the colors beneath. I used the SSS Detail Bohemian Plate to cut a background for the flowers and glued the flowers atop that trimming off the excess.
I used the Slay Every Day sentiment from the SSS Yay You set and stamped that using VersaFine Onyx Black ink and heat embossed it using Ranger Clear Embossing Powder. I did heat set it a couple of times to give it a smoother finish. I then used the coordinating die to trim it out, and cut an extra to glue to it for more stability. The sentiment was then glued to the floral panel.
That panel was then adhered to a black panel using SSS Dot Tape Runner before being adhered to the card base. I added some PFS Iridescent Clear Drops for a little shine and sparkle to finish up.
That does it for this one! I hope you enjoyed it and I hope it inspires you to get crafty making your own backgrounds! Don’t forget to check out the entire Dream Big release over on Simon’s website. Have a wonderful day and stay awesome!
