English Garden Washi, Stamp & Die - Encouragement Cards┃Yasmin Diaz

Happy Tuesday, Pinkfresh friends! Yasmin here sharing with you a delicate “Encouragement’’ inspiration cards made using the latest English Garden Washi Tape, English Garden Stamp Set and English Garden Die. So, without further ado let’s jump right into the step-by-step for how I made them.

First of all, I quickly started off by unrolling the English Garden Washi Tape and sticking it over a W 9-1/4’’x H 4-1/4’’ inches white cardstock panel. Once, I had that step done, I used a Rotary Cutter to cut off the large piece out of the washitape roll.

Secondly, I went ahead to get the English Garden Die which happens to be its coordinating die line up over the panel, and once I had that step done, I’ve gone ahead to run them through my the die-cutting machine to die cut the floral pieces out of the card panel. Next, I lined up the die over a large piece of white cardstock and I ran them through the die-cutting machine and then, I also lined up the die over a large piece of craft foam and I repeated the same step.

Therefore, as soon as I had finished with the die-cutting pieces, I’ve gone ahead to create a shaker wreath so to do that, I adhered down with double-sided tape a piece of acetate to the backing of the floral wreath. Next, I’ve gotten adhered the die-cutting craft foam wreath to it and then, I placed the wreath facing down and I added glitter to it. Lastly, I adhered another piece of acetate to it and last but not least, I’ve gotten the shaker wreath sealed by gluing down the cardstock die-cutting wreath.

Moving on, after having the shaker wreath completed, I set it off to the side to start the assembling for the card thus, for the assembling, I went ahead to adhere down with double-sided tape the backing of a textured white card panel to an A2 side folding white card base. A textured white card panel which, I’ve had previously dried emboss using the larger strips die from Slim Stripes Die Set on an angle way. Next, I adhered down 2 gold stripes which, I’ve gotten die-cut out of gold cardstock using the smaller strip die from the set and then, I mounted with skinny pieces of craft foam tape a stitched diagonal white frame which, I’ve also previously created using the 2 largest dies from Essentials: Diagonal Stitched Rectangles Die Set.

Lastly, to finish the assembling for the card, I went ahead to mount the wreath in the center of the card with small pieces of craft foam tape to add dimension and to finish it off, I’ve gotten adhere down a sentiment in the center of the floral wreath. A sentiment which, I’ve had previously stamp and gold heat embossing on a piece of translucent vellum using one of the sentiment from English Garden Stamp Set.

My intentions were only to share 1 card using this gorgeous set but was kind of difficult not to make and why not share a second card made using the small die-cutting floral clusters. So therefore, I added texture to an A2 size white card panel in the same way as I did i the first example however, instead of dry embossing once, I did twice to add an extra little touch to it.

Next, I went ahead to trim off the edges from the textured card panel and then, I’ve gotten it mounted with craft foam tape to an A2 top folding white card base. Then right after, I went ahead to die-cut a detailed white circle using the dies from Essentials: Braided Circles Die Set and once I’ve had that done, I kept going to get a sentiment stamped and gold heat embossing in the center of the detailed circle using one of the sentiments from the stamp set.

Nevertheless, I went ahead to mount the circle with craft foam tape to add even more dimension in the center of the card and last but not least, I adhered down the small die-cutting floral clusters (as shown in the image above) finishing that way today’s second example.

Finally, after having both card finished, I went ahead to add a touch of sparkle by gluing down with liquid glue some clear crystals from Essentials: Crystal Mix. And, with that being said, thank you for stopping by we hope you have enjoyed reading the step-by-step for how I’ve made this delicate “Encouragement’’ inspiration cards using an array of beautiful products by Pinkfresh.

So So pretty! I love how you created the circle frame, with the different essential dies. And those soft embossed backgrounds add just the correct amount of interest. The shaker card is so pretty with the gold embossed and the gold stripes behind it as well. Lovely cards!
