SSS Etched Peony Blossom

Hello hello crafty friends.  Thanks for coming back for another tutorial.  Today I will be sharing how I made this super super easy card using 2 die cuts.  So lets get started.


I started by cutting out my SSS Etched Peony Blossom using Bristol Smooth watercolor cardstock.  I plan on using my Zig watercolor markers and that cardstock is the best when using those markers.  I used a shim to cut out this die because its intricate.


Once I cut out my flower, I grabbed my Zig markers and used Peach Pink at the center of the flowers and in other various areas for shadows, etc.  I used my watercolor brush and pulled the color away from the center of each petal.  I used Light Brown, Yellow and Orange for the center.


When I was done with that, I started to assemble my card.  I got an A2 size card base and a trimmed down piece of gold cardstock.  I used my Connect glue from Gina K to adhere it to my card base.  I got another trimmed down piece of white cardstock (neenah solar white 80lb) and created embossed lines using my Score Buddy.  I attached some foam adhesive to the back and adhered it to my gold panel.  I placed my flower in the middle of my card leaving enough room to put my sentiment.  I used SSS Thanks die and cut it in gold, using some more glue to the back of it and adhered it under my flower.  I finished my card off with some embellishments from Little Lucy.




That’s it!  Super easy, right?!?  Thank you for stopping by.  The products I used to make this card and where they can be found is listed below.  All you have to do is click on the image and go shopping.  See you next time!
