CARD MAKING DETAILS

I went with the Pink, Yellow, Red and Grey color palette. These colors are super cool when combined together. I didn't use any stamps for this card and hence the title Simple Die-cutting.
I ran the Polaroid thinlit die, 'smile' sentiment die and one of the flowers from Wildflowers die through the Big Shot Plus Machine and I die-cut it out of Heavy White Card Stock.
I took a flat paint brush and simply applied Pink water color over the main card base. I diluted the paint little by little to achieve an ombre look. I also water colored the die-cuts!
Once everything is dry, I stacked and adhered the wildflower thinlit through the polaroid and attached that element over the main card base. Also adhered the smile die-cut to the card front.
