Flower Challenge Reminder

It’s the midway point in our current challenge and here is my reminder card. This month our theme for October is…’Use a Shape’. 

We are also celebrating our 5th Birthday! See the main post for all details and PRIZES.

Here is my card for the reminder post.

I had an alcohol ink background in my stash of background and thought it would be fun to use the Pinkfresh Hexagons Die. Before I ran the background through my die cut machine, I used a little Theroweb Liquid glue to apply some foil to the background. I love the look and it was a fun way to add a little more gold to my background.

Once I die cut my background, I was left with some fun hexagons as well as a pretty die cut background. I decided to use both to make some cards.

For my main card, I arranged the hexagon shapes to make a fun square. I then used the Pinkfresh Dainty Blossom with some gold card stock and added it to my card along withe sentiment.

For my second card, I glued the die cut background to my card base and added another flower from the Dainty Blossom die set.

This was such a fun way to use an alcohol background and get several cards in the process.

Thanks for stopping by and I hope you get a chance to check out the beautiful inspiration from the team.

  3. Your alcohol ink panel is gorgeous, Ericka, especially with the added gold. How great that you could make two beautiful cards from it.
