Instructions: The Top fold card with smooth white cardstock measures 7″ by 7″. Take a white card stock measuring 6 1/2″ by 4 1/2″ and tape down a Basic Fleur Die on the bottom. Run it through the die cutting machine. To create the background, smush Wild Honey Distress ink on the craft sheet and spritz water. Create a background by pressing the cardstock facing down. Lift and heat set. Once happy with colors add little textures using Prima Grungy Grid Stencil with Spiced Marmalade Distress Ink. Stamp a random pattern with Tropical Perrot Cling Stamp with Black Archival. Now score the pattern at 1/8th of an inch each time. Cut a fancy lace border from white cardstock and adhere to the backside of the ready stamped and inked panel. Now add a pattern paper from the same collection to create the base of stamped panel. The ready panel will now measure 15 cm by 14 cm. Layer it using foam dots to the ready panel on the black cardstock 1/4th cm bigger than the top stamped panel. The focal image is stamped with black archival and painted using Zig Clean Brush Markers. The shades used are 041, 042, 045, 031, 032, 050, 052. I have doodled few white dots with white gel pen to highlight the image. The image is then cut using its coordinating die. For flowers, Stamp multiple images with Magenta Hue Archival and paint them using Tea Rose and Magenta Hue. Shape the with deluxe shaping kit. For Leaves stamp multiple times with Library Green and cut them using its coordinating die. Paint them using leaf green and shape using Deluxe shaping kit. Brush all the leaves and flowers with clear crackle and sprinkle Crystal Clear and Frosty Powder randomly and heat set. The filler flowers are from Wildwood Florals Die. These are simply cut and lightly colored using Sunflower Archival ink and shaped. I have used a wired pollen to add a little stem to the filler flower. 3 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. A circle frame is cut from Classic circle die. Brush it with the adhesive that dries clear and sprinkles Elizabeth Craft Golden Glitter and dust extra. Burnish it with your fingers to get extra shine. Once all the elements are ready to assemble the card as shown. Lastly cut die cuts from white cardstock using word die and add it to the card on left bottom corner to finish the card.
