Instructions: Cut a smooth white card stock measuring 15” X 71/2”. To the longer side, score at 4 1/2″ and 9′ and crease in Z fold. Cut designer paper 1/8th of an inch smaller than all the panels. Choose a 6″ by 6″ square card panel from the designer paper and cut the window using Cut, Mat and Create Die. Adhere Acetate sheet using red tacky tape, from the back and create a clear window. For the clear window now choose a pattern paper with Flamingoes from the same collection to use as a base. Layer the base on a golden mirror sheet, little bigger than the base. Adhere window giving dimensions with foam tape. Stamp the focal image with black archival ink and paint it using Zig Clean Clear Brush Markers. Shades used are 220, 026, and 022. Cut the images using their coordinating dies. Cut 6 swirly leaves are stamped with Library Green archival and painted using Leaf green. Dab it on Versa mark and sprinkle clear UTEE and heat set. The filler flowers are from Wildwood Florals Di. I avoided coloring them and kept them plain white. I have used a wired pollen to add a little stem to the filler flower. For main flowers, stamp multiple images with Magenta Hue Archival and paint them using Tea Rose and Magenta Hue. Shape the with deluxe shaping kit. Add wired pollen in the center and glue them with the adhesive that dries clear. Make only 3 petal flowers for this card. Cut two tags, one ticket, and one oval tag. Mat them on white cardstock and cut leaving a white border. Assemble all the elements on the window giving them dimensions using foam dots. Finally, stick the window on the prepared card base with the help of foam tape and adhere the tags from the back of the front panel. Add a 3 layered white die cut embellishment with the word die ” Aloha ” to add an extra accent to the card.
