Detailed Floral Thinlits for Elegant Handmade Cards

You’ll love the Detailed Floral Thinlits for creating elegant handmade cards for all occasions.  Depending on the sentiment you add to the card, it could be for a birthday, Mother’s Day, thank you, friendship, sympathy, thinking of you–any occasion when you want to tell someone how much they mean to you!  It would also make a lovely wedding or anniversary card.  What a versatile design!

What a lovely color combination:  Mint Macaron and Island Indigo, with a slightly offset layer of Night of Navy to give a shadow effect.  Doesn’t it give a 3D look to the die-cuts?  Here’s a closeup of the shadow:

The technique is so simple, just cut two different colors with the Detailed Floral Thinlits.  Then when you adhere them to the cardstock, layer one on top of the other, with just a little bit of the bottom layer showing.  It’s especially effective with a darker bottom layer.

The Mint Macaron layer was stamped with one of the brushstroke stamps from the Work of Art stamp set.  This is one of my go-to stamps when I need some subtle texture on a background layer.  Here’s a video that shows the background technique:

    How clever to put the shadow behind the cut out. It really changes the look.

      Thanks, Jackie. It really makes it look 3D, doesn’t it!
