Make A Wish Card using all Dies!

Happy Tuesday everyone. It's Rosie here today sharing an adorable critter birthday card using all dies! That's right folks....all the elements on this card were created using various die-cuts. Grab your coffee and get settled in because I'm going to break down step-by-step how I created this!

The first thing I did was cut all my elements from white paper. I decided I wanted to ink up the Lawn Fawn Meadow Backdrop with Distress Oxide Ink and color the other elements with Copic Markers to give the dies more depth. That's the great thing about dies...you can cut the pieces from patterned paper or various colors of cardstock or even from white paper to color yourself. I cut the backdrop twice from Bristol Smooth cardstock and the other elements from Xpress It Blending Card.

I knew I wanted additional critters on this card, so I pulled out the Karen Burniston Woodland Animals and also die-cut those from Xpress It Blending Card.


To create the clouds, I decided to use a die to create a stencil from cardstock. I used one of the cloud borders from the Lawn Fawn Puffy Cloud Borders Dies and cut a piece of white cardstock.


Since this die has stitching along the border, I took some glue and placed a thin layer on the back side of the die to seal the stitched holes. Sealing the holes prevents stitch marks when you rub the Distress Oxide Ink over the edge. Be sure to let it dry completely.



I cut a piece of white Bristol Smooth cardstock at 4"x5.25" for the cloud panel (this piece will go behind the meadow border die). I rubbed Broken China and Tumbled Glass Distress Oxide Ink along the top edge of the Lawn Fawn Puffy Cloud Border, moving it around as I moved down.


I also inked up the Meadow Backdrop Die using the blues at the top of the border and then Mowed Lawn and Twisted Citron Distress Oxide Inks along the grassy areas. Once it was all inked up, I spritzed water on the green areas and blotted with a paper towel. On the 2nd Meadow Backdrop die-cut I cut off the bottom grassy knoll and inked that up as well.


I always used foam tape or pop-dots to create dimension. I added foam tape to the Meadow Backdrop and the extra grassy knoll.


I placed the cloud panel on the back of the main Meadow Backdrop.


Then I added the extra grassy knoll to the bottom of the card.


To finished the card base, I added the Meadow Backdrop scene to a piece of patterned cardstock (4.75"x6"), then a green mat (5"x6.25"), and finally onto the white card base (5.25"x6.5").


I colored the tulips pink with Copic Markers and glued them to the top of the green stems. The other stem that was part of the top grassy knoll was snipped off since I knew it was going to be covered up by the fox. Then I colored all the other pieces with markers to give them more depth and glued them together. You can see how different they look colored by hand instead of paper-piecing.


To keep everything on the card a die, I decided to use one of these Birthday Top Edgers for the sentiment instead of a stamp. I die-cut the Make A Wish edger from black cardstock and then fussy cut each of the words.


And here is the card all put together! I decided to add more clouds in the sky on foam tape so I used the Memory Box Puffy Clouds Dies for those.


You can see some of the dimension in this side view.
