First, let’s take about this amazing FREE gift shown above. You can receive a set of Distress Crayons for FREE with the code GALAXY! Valid only util 6/25 at 11:59 pm ET or white supplies last.

I’m using the Mid Century Ethereal cover die for my card project.

I started by die cutting it multiple times from white cardstock and layering them together for dimension using liquid glue.

For the background, I decided to pull out one of my paper pads that I hoard. This one is from the Craft Consortium Ink Drops Candy paper pack. It is so hard using one of these paper pads because they are so gorgeous but I love the look behind this panel.

For the sentiment, I stamped Birthday Wishes from the Big Old Birthday stamp set and used the coordinating die to cut it out.

Quite simple of a card to put together but wow! Those designs with that background are just so cool!

This papers will definitely increase the WOW factor of any project.

  50. Wow, LOVE this card! Did you use lighter cardstock, so it stacks up easier? I think 110lb cardstock is hard to get a clean cut from a die, at least my experience with that weight paper. I like the hefty dimension to the front panel, really adds to the wow factor. Thank you for teaching me something new, but I hope you will comment on my question. Much obliged.

    1. This was 100lb cardstock
