Starry Sky Blue Hollyhocks Card

This Starry Sky Blue Hollyhocks Card uses the Layering Die-Cuts Technique for a monochromatic design. Make this card using the new Heavenly Hollyhocks stamp set and learn a new technique with the tutorial here!

I really love how this card turned out. This may be the first time I’m using ready-to-use card bases instead of cutting and folding my own, but I am now a fan! Additionally, the set came with coordinating envelopes!

Additionally, this card shows off the beautiful Layering Die-cuts technique!

Between the patterned cardbase and the Ombre glimmer paper and the embellishments, this monochromatic design is versatile and can be used with a lot of different sentiments.

I hope you try it! Give yourself some craft time — you’ll thank yourself afterwards.

How to make a Starry Sky Hollyhocks Card:

Cut your cardstock:

  • There is no need to cut your cardbase if you are using the Tea boutique cards and envelopes! Use the Starry Sky set.
  • Vellum: 5” x 3 1/2”, die-cut with the 2nd-largest stitched rectangle die.
  • Starry Sky Glimmer paper: 1 sheet.
  • Basic White: 5 1/2” x 3 1/2”.
  • Starry Sky scrap: die-cut with smallest stitched rectangle.

Layering Die-Cuts:

  • There are two large die-cuts included in this set. Cut the outline die (with large cut-outs) from Basic White cardstock.
  • Then, die-cut the inner part from Starry Sky glimmer paper.
  • Next, use your liquid glue to adhere the white outline to the glimmer die-cut. Then adhere these hollyhocks to the left side of your vellum.

Complete the Card:

  • Heat emboss your sentiment on the die-cut scrap of Starry Sky with white embossing powder. For a more detailed description of this technique, check out this tutorial. Adhere this to the upper right corner of the vellum.
  • On the back of the vellum, add a few glue dots and adhere it to the center of your card base.

TIP: To hide your adhesive showing through vellum, Only add glue dots behind elements added to the top.

  • Lastly, add a few Starry Sky embellishment dots. Hint: I added a few to cover a few glue dots.
