Floral Border Silhouette

10 Comments

Hi, friends, Chark here today to share one of my favorites right now, the Hero Arts Floral Border Die. It’s delicate and spring-like and makes a gorgeous silhouette when cut from black cardstock.

For the background, I used Distress Inks and applied the ink pads to a nonstick craft sheet. Then I spritzed with a lot of water and ran the cardstock through the ink. I let the panel dry and then trimmed it to fit behind the die cut.

I stamped the sentiment and swirl from the Color Layering Peacock Stamp set and adhered the whole panel to a card base. It was easy to do and pretty quick. If you want to speed up your ink drying time, you can use a heat gun and it would be even quicker. It looks like you took a lot of time and effort but it really is a fast and easy card.

Hope you’ll join in our monthly challenge Getting to Know You (using your favorite Hero Arts products). You can win $25 to the store! I think my favorite die says I’m fond of flowers and sunsets. Do you think the black against the color looks a little like the trees against the setting sun? I do!

Happy Monday!
