Birch Press Design – Tranquility Layer Set

Hello!

I made some time to play with a Birch Press Design layer set today. I admire the intricate dies from Birch Press so much and often feel too intimidated to play. Do you ever get that way? I guess I feel the same before tackling a project I know will take a lot of thought or time coloring. I have issues, friends. I over-think everything…and far too long before starting a project. My friend Tracey McNeely is a Birch Press Design Team Member and used the Tranquility Layer Set several months ago and I am excited to share this one with you today.

To create my colorful layers, I cut 3 pieces of cardstock to 4.25″ x 4.25″ and ink-blended them with Pawsitively Saturated Inks using Blush, Cantaloupe, Limelicious, Surf, Cadette, and Sweets (linked below). I ink-blended each of the panels with the same pattern, each panel in varying intensity. I wanted the bottom most layer to be the darkest, so I ink-blended that panel for the most saturation and went lighter with each panel.

Once all three panels were ready, I used the Tranquility Layer Set to die-cut the layers and adhered them together. For the background, I die-cut the most intricate layer 3 times and used all the parts to fill a white panel for the background – making sure it’s all symmetrical, of course. I did mention that I over-think/over-plan right? Execution is important!

I adhered my rainbow mandala over the background panel using foam adhesive, then attached some pearls in various areas for interest. To finish, I attached a sentiment from a Simon Says Stamp Reverse The Best Friends Sentiment Strips set.

I hope you like this! Lots of precision in making this card, but I loved it and found it relaxing. Thanks so much for stopping by!

  1. OH. MY. GOODNESS. This is absolutely gorgeous. I love mandalas! They’re just so beautiful and you can do so much with them. Even better, this one comes in layers. Too bad Birch Press requires a second mortgage. But I can dream! 😂😂😂 So beautiful, Caly. You rocked it, my friend.
