Finish This Card Collab! ft. Hedgehog Hollow

Hey friends! Today’s video is an exciting collab with Alexandra from The Hedgehog Hollow sharing how to use and incorporate backgrounds into your cards. She created 4 backgrounds using Simon Hurley create. inks and sent them to me to turn into cards!

Die cutting is a great way to use backgrounds in creative ways on your cardmaking projects. For this background, I use the So Many Yays dies to cut out a large word from the background. You can still use the rest of the background on another card!

To finish the card, I ink blended the background using the Spaced Dots stencil with Slippery When Wet and Over The Moon inks to create a grounding place for the image. Then, I colored and added the little girl image from the Bestest Friends stamp set!


The second background was created using the Looks Like Rain stencil and some foiling… it has a grounding place for images and is almost complete. To finish off this card, I used images from the Bestest Friends stamp set to create a rainy day scene. I colored the images in using Simon Hurley create. reinker waterbrushes and added them onto the card!

See how Alexandra created these fun backgrounds HERE!
