Video - Designing With Background Die Techniques and Cosmic Shimmer Flakes

I recently received three new background dies from Karen Burniston's new release and some new colors of Cosmic Shimmer Flakes and I have designed 5 cards with them for my newest video

My favorite of the three new background dies is the Flowers Pattern Plate and in the video I show how easy it is to make this gorgeous cards with teal and two shades of coral cardstock. The flower is a die from Marisa Job and Spellbinders and I die cut it out of a piece of cardstock with scor-tape on it and show how to apply the Blue Ice Cosmic Shimmer Aurora Flakes to it for the gorgeous shime. Hello is also a die from Karen Burniston and it was applied on a vellum circle so it stands out from the busy background. I added some Gina Marie Designs gems to finish the card. 

In the video I show these cards as examples of two more background techniques: tone on tone and offset. The peach tone on tone card features another sentiment die from Karen Burniston and a pretty Spellbinders flower with black and silver Aurora flakes. The purple card has two layers of the Flowers Pattern Plate offset, a gorgeous purple and silver Aurora Flakes butterfly cut out with a Tim Holtz die, and a layered hello die from Tonic Studios.

Great video on the process. I like the look at the flakes and will link and try them out. I'm thinking maybe the black and silver flakes.
