Hi everyone! Lexa here today with a birthday card highlighting Botanical Backdrop Dies. This set comes with leafy stitched frame and endless layered flowers to play with. Let's get started right away!

First, I blend Peacock Feather Distress Ink all around the edges. Then I die cut the leafy frame on a matching teal patterned paper from Polka-dot Parade Paper

I decided to use four color combination for the flowers, which are pink, fuchsia, purple and yellow. Using the flower dies, I randomly die cut bunch of flowers and layer them together one by one. It was so much fun.

After I finished with the flowers, I arrange and adhere them on my card using glue and foam tapes for dimensions. I use "happy birthday" from my favorite Everyday Greetings Stamp for the sentiment, I silver embossed it on an eggplant color paper so it will pop up more. Last but not least, I add pink jewels from Pretty Pink Posh to add some sparkles.

Thank you so much for stopping by today! I hope you all like my card and have an amazing day.

Hello friends!  It's Rachel here and I am sharing two cards today that feature the gorgeous Botanical Backdrop Die.

For my first card, I created a fun shaker card and combined the Botanical Backdrop Die with the cute Magical Mermaids Stamp Set. I thought that the leafy frame could pass as some ocean foliage and nicely frame a little underwater scene. I colored all of my images with Copic Sketch Markers and used the coordinating dies to cut them out.

For the underwater background, I blended some Distress Inks (Peacock Feathers, Mermaid Lagoon, Wilted Violet, and Dusty Concord) onto a sheet of Ranger White Watercolor Paper.  I then spritzed this panel lightly with water, blotted it dry with a paper towel and then set it aside to completely dry.

Once my background was ready, I added some 3D Foam Adhesive Tape around the edges and added my embellishments. I heat embossed my sentiment with Super Fine Detail White Embossing Powder onto a sheet of Heat Resistant Acetate. Once I attached the acetate, I then glued the final frame onto the outside of the card.

For my second card, I didn't do any stamping at all. I simply die cut my images and lightly blended them with some ink. I used the Colorbox Ocean Ink for the green/blue tint and the Colorbox Lemonade Ink for the small yellow flowers.

I added a sheet of the Gingham Pastels Paper Pack to the background and then adhered a 3D version of the sentiment "Hello" by die cutting it 5 times.

I hope you enjoyed my cards today! Wishing you all the best weekend!
