Scallop Background featuring Pretty Pink Posh

I have 2 cards to share with you featuring the same technique but different looks featuring the Scallop Borders 2 die.

I have realized over time that I'm not always the best putting my explanation of how to make a card into words, so I took picture as I went, it also helps me remember because I have a 5 month old at home that doesn't believe in sleeping so I often have mommy brain😋

I then took my card panels, my first one being an A2 size of Neenah desert storm and my second being an A2 size of white card stock, from there I lined up my die cut , temporally taped it down and ran it through my die machine until my panel was in multiple pieces. I made sure to keep those pieces in order as they were cut( as shown in picture) and then adhered them onto my card base in order to create my background! For my kraft colored card I splattered some gold water color on it from the Gansai Tambi starry water colors for some added interest.

For my second card I did the same as above but just using a different border die from the set and I decided to add some color. So I ink blended some distress ink onto the individual pieces , I used Dusty Concord, Broken China and Spiced Marmalade. Once I had the pieces colored I splatter some water on top for a sort of fun distress look and once all dried I adhered onto my base to finish background.

For my sentiment I used the same sentiment for both cards from the Woodland Critters stamp set. I stamped it onto strips of vellum. I should have mentioned before I adhered down my die cut pieces I tucked my vellum under one piece, or you adhere your pieces on a piece of card stock before you put it on your card base.
I wanted to add a little on each piece of vellum on my collored card I used the owl from the Happy Owls stamp set and for my kraft card I used a bee from the Bee Friends stamp set. I stamped them on a white card stock colored in with Copic markers and cut them out using the coordinating dies

To finish off both my cards I scattered some Sparkling Clear Confetti Mix.
It gives the perfect finishing touch!

That's it for me today!
I appreciate you stopping by!
Hope you have a lovely day!
