Adding Depth and Dimension with Ink Blending

Hello friends! I’m back again with more Christmas card inspiration!

Today I want to show you how easy it is to add depth and dimension to your die cuts using ink blending.


You can watch the tutorial down below or HERE on my Youtube channel.

I’ll be using the new Fresh Cut Flowers die set from Gina K Designs.

Since I go over everything in the video, I will briefly go over the supplies used down below.

The base of the flowers are created with Layering Weight White cardstock. I ink blended Red Hot, Cherry Red and Faded Brick ink using a blending brush and mini blending brush.

The leaves are blended with Light Spruce and Dark Spruce.

The outline of the flowers I die cut from Mirror Gold Cardstock and for the leaves I used Heavy Weight White.

To add a bit more interest into the background, I ink blended on the Graceful Snowflake stencil using Soft Stone ink.

After I added my arrangement to the front with foam squares, I tucked in a few die cuts from the Foliage Filler set.

My sentiment comes from the Holiday Silhouettes set that is heat embossed in white onto Black cardstock and cut out with the Large Sentiment Strips die.

I finished off the card with a few embellishments like the Clear Quartz Sequins and White Pearls.

Hope you enjoyed today’s card project. Be sure to check out the video for the full tutorial.
