Simon Says: Use a Die or Punch

Now for this weeks challenge Simon Says: Use a Die or Punch! The design team is featuring Birch Press designs you don't have to use them but if you have them we would love to see them :)


For my project today I used the gorgeous Mandala Layer Stencil by Birch Press with some Altenew Sweet Dreams ink cubes and my round blending tools.  I love the colors in this ink set and I just love the effect it gave the stencil. Once that was complete, I die cut my panel using the largest Avery Elle Wonky Stitched Rectangle. 


This was such a fast card to put together I decided to use this beautiful Birch Press Big Hugs Sugar Script die as my sentiment. For the background of the die I used Lawn Fawn Black Licorice card stock and Tonic Tropical Tide glitter paper for the top Hugs die.


Once that was added to the panel I opted for the "Friend" sentiment from a Simon Says Stamp Brand Exclusive Spring Flower Burst (I partially stamped that sentiment with Versamark ink). I then used my Nuvo White embossing powder and poped it up with foam tape as I did with the Hugs die. And that was it, super quick and I love the effect of this card!
