Instructions: The ready side fold card measures 7 1/2″ by 5 1/2″. Choose a piece of pattern paper from the designer paper collection and cut it 1/4th inch smaller from all sides to the card base. Distress it on all the four sides using distress tool or scissors and layer it using foam tapes. Take another piece of white cardstock measuring 7″ by 5″ and score at 1/8th of an inch each time. Keep that panel aside. Top most panel measures 6 3/4′ by 4 3/4′. For this, smush the Peacock Feathers and Cracked Pistachio distress inks on the craft sheet, spritz water and lift the color on the paper by pressing cardstock. Build few layers of colors, drying in between each layer using the heat gun. Once happy with the background, stamp a dogwood flower vine from Dogwood Chapel Cling Stamp Set, multiple times using black archival ink. In the open areas stamp little script from Large Elegant Word Background Cling Stamp Set. Randomly stamp the postcard stamp with Versa mark and heat emboss it with ranger’s golden heat embossing powder. Now pull the color from the flower images with water using Koi Water Color Brush. Once all the background is ready, cut the base of the prepared pattern paper using Fleur Border Basics Die. Adhere a fancy die cut underneath the prepared pattern paper panel. Cut a circle from the prepared pattern paper using the Classic Circle Die. Cut an extra circle from white cardstock and layer in betweeen the created pattern paper as shown. Now layer whole panel on the already scored white card stock base.Tie a natural twine around the panel and stick to card base. On another sheet of white cardstock, stamp the floral vine multiple times and color it using Zig Clear Brush Markers. The shades used are 045, 041, 200, 220, 067. Cut the images with it’s coordinating die. For the bird, image is stamped with archival and painted using , 045, 036 and 047 Zig clen clear brush markers. Once all the elements are ready, assemble the card as shown. To finish the card, hang 2 small tags at the end of the twines and add sentiment form the paper collection.
