Scored Shapes: Happiest Birthday to You

Hello there!
Mayuri here to share a card using the new, Scored Shapes dies and a sentiment from Happiest Birthday.

I can see myself having so much fun with these dies - I left them intact for this particular project, but used individually opens up even more possibilities!

I took a panel of watercolour paper that already had some inky goodness on it (I never throw anything away!) and simply ran the Scored Shapes dies through it, setting aside the positive pieces. On the main panel, I stamped a sentiment from Happiest Birthday with Versafine Onyx Black ink.

On a white card base, I sponged some Delicata Golden Glitz ink in the areas that would show through the die cut spaces on the watercolour panel. To intensify the gold, I brushed some gold Perfect Pearls over the ink and misted lightly with water to set.

I foam mounted the die cut watercolour panel to the card base, revealing the gold through the apertures. I then adhered some of the positive pieces to the front along with matching sequins from the Sunset Shimmer sequin mix.

You could easily replicate this card with patterned paper, Gelli prints or anything that is lying around in your craft room ;-)
Thanks for stopping by!

    1. Hi Craftytreen! Thanks for your question - I used reinkers to create the watercolour-effect background before die-cutting the shapes. You can use most reinkers - I like Distress Ink reinkers, but if you don't have those, you can also use Dylusions Ink Sprays.

      Hope that helps!
