Using Dark Backgrounds Two Ways | Isha Gupta

Using Dark Backgrounds Two Ways | Isha Gupta

Hello everyone! I am on the blog with two cards featuring the Vines and Roses product suite. I normally create pastel, vibrant cards but the dark backgrounds have their own elegance, so I decided to share two card designs.

I used various colors of stripes to add pops of color to this design.

I started by using the Dotted Petals press plate, inked it with Regal Kiss ink and took the impression using the Betterpress Letterpress system. Next, I die-cut this piece using the Notched Corner Frames dies. Adhere the stripes diagonally.

Stamp the images using Vines and Roses stamp onto vellum using versamark ink, sprinkle white embossing powder and heat set. Die-cut using Vines and Roses die.

Add color to some of the leaves and flower using copic markers and create a cluster. Stamp the sentiment using Detail Black ink, die-cut.


Stack three more die-cut for some dimension. To finish, add some Enchanted Forest Glitter Drops.

For the next card I used the Vines and Roses washi tape. I love the rainbow color effect. Adhere the washi to a white card, die-cut using the coordinating dies.

Take a purple card, add texture using the Dotted Petals press plate as we did above. Adhere the die-cut images using 3d foam to the panel.

Die-cut a vellum label using the Basic Label Frames die set. Adhere the stamped sentiment to it using 3d foam and now adhere the vellum to the panel.

Add this panel to a cardbase.

This is such an easy card to make but the gold foiling on washi and the details make it look so elegant.

Thank you for dropping by and have a nice day.
