I started by die-cutting a cover die that would also give off an embossed look on the High Gloss Mirror Card. I ran it through my die-cutting machine, and I used the Nuvo Flat Tip Glue Pen to adhere it to my folded card base (size A2 - 4.25" x 5.5").
Next, I ran a floral die through my die-cutting machine with High Gloss Mirror Card in Glossy Black and then again in Midnight Plum. I ran the die a third time using Glitter Card in Gold Dust and kept only the outline. Very carefully, I adhered the Glossy Black as leaves and the Midnight Plum as the main parts of the flower. Instead of using the traditional green for leaves, I wanted to keep it black to go with the base.
Finally, I needed a sentiment. I have noticed a trend of word dies that come with an outline and I used it for this card. I used Glossy Black for the word die and Gold Dust for the word outline. I glued both to the bottom of the base with Nuvo Flat Tip Glue Pen. For the floral cluster, I mounted it near the top right with Dimensional Foam Pads for some dimension.
For my second card, I went with a different look. I stamped several floral images with a black dye ink that is alcohol ink friendly. I used Nuvo Marker Pen Collections in various shades to color the flowers and leaves.
For the background, I cut down a piece of White Watercolor Card to 4" x 5.25". I used the Brilliantly Vibrant Watercolor Pencils to color across the card. I added a little bit of water to blend the colors and let it dry. Then I adhered it to my A2 folded card base with Nuvo Flat Tip Glue Pen. I added the flowers over the colored base with Dimensional Foam Pads.
For the sentiment, I stamped it in clear embossing ink and heat-embossed in white on black cardstock. I trimmed it down and mounted it next to the flowers with Dimensional Foam Pads.
