Thinking of You by Jenny Alia


Hi friends, Jenny here today sharing a card I made using new May Release dies.  I used two of the dies from the Royal Scandinavian A2 Card Facer set to cut the design into the card front.  The card face is backed with a light blue patterned paper from Prima.   I cut the Thinking of You Sentiment Square and glued a blue Pierced Square behind it.  The sentiment was covered in glitter glue for sparkle.


The flowers were made using the Cherry Blossom Branch die.  I cut it twice to double layer the flowers.  Adding an extra flower created so much extra dimension.  The flower on the left is the complete flower.  For visual balance I added a part of the flower to the right side of the card as well.  The flowers are colored with distress ink.  I crinkled the edges by pinching them with my fingers and pulled the stamens up toward the center to get a more natural and three dimensional look.

Thanks for stopping by today.  I had so much fun seeing this card evolve by double layering the flowers and I hope this inspired you to try it.  Make sure to check out our current Lots of Layers challenge for a chance to win a $20 voucher to Cheery Lynn Designs!
