Hi card making friends and welcome back. It’s the first of the month and that means NEW CLUBS from Spellbinders – YEAH! So I have a Kaleidoscope Floral Slimline card to share with you today.
My boss at Spellbinders is Yana, and she lives in the Ukraine. I have been worrying for her and wondering how awful it must be living under those conditions. Here we sit in our warm little houses with our quiet evenings meanwhile, she and her husband spent a night in a cold dark wet bomb shelter listening to bombs going off. I cannot imagine. She emailed us today and shared that she is safe and well and we thank God for that. If you are into prayers, I’m sure they would appreciate some, and let’s all pray for peace to come quickly.
I think my mood had something to do with this card today haha. I wasn’t sure which way I was going but I knew I didn’t have the patience for a delicate defined die cutting day so instead, I did a messy smooshing technique. This is the Kaleidoscope Floral Slimline Die set and it’s the Large Die of the Month Club for March. It cuts beautifully and there are additional dies that create layers over the larger flowers. There are some pretty examples of the die cut layering cards on the website.

How to create the Kaleidoscope Floral Slimline Card:
Die cut all the pieces from watercolor paper. I used Canson, you don’t need really high quality watercolor paper for this technique.
Set up the Waffle Flower Water Media Mat and add a few drops each of Hero Arts Watercolors in Indigo Teal and Leaf. You could also use distress sprays if you don’t want to get your fingers really inky.
Leave some space between the watercolors so they don’t blend and spritz them with a bit of water.
Next, push parts of the die cut into the ink and SMOOSH it, dry it with a heat tool and then SMOOSH it again into the next color.
Repeat until you have the colors as dark as you like and you have covered the entire piece.
Finally, repeat with the layering flowers and leaves.
Glue the base down to a 4 x 9 hammermill white slimline card base. Glue the layered flowers together and add them as well.
Creating the Sentiment:
Use the Sentiments for Everyday glimmer set to foil the birthday greeting. Trim and add to the front of the card with foam squares
Embellish the flower centers with large gems and sprinkle some smaller ones around the card using the Aquamarine and Sapphire Color Essentials Gems from Spellbinders.
