Instructions: The ready top-fold card from white cardstock measures, 9″ by 5 1/4″. Starting from the top panel, first, choose the paper from the designer paper collection. The top panel measures, 4 1/2″ by 8 1/2″ to create which we need a color combination of two pattern papers. Cut a strip of blue dotted paper measuring 1 1/2′ by 8 1/2″ and light yellow paper measuring 3″ by 8 1/2″. Adhere both the strips on a thin rough strip of paper. Neat the edges with the help of paper trimmer. Set the small photo mat die on the right-hand side of the ready panel and run through die cutting machine to create the window. Cover the window with acetate sheet from the back using red tacky tape.
Shaker window: Choose the pattern paper from the paper collection to create the back panel of the window, glue layered and slightly shaped flowers, and buttons. Also, stamp the sentiment from Hand-stitched Accents Cling Stamp Set with Teal color Stazon. To the top panel add two layers of foam tape, add sequence mix, release the backing of the tape and close the shaker window with the back panel. To the shaker, window, add a layer of white and then a layer of dark blue paper and then mat it on the ready card base.
Embellishments: Stamp all the needed images from Buttons and Blooms Cling Stamp Set and Patchwork Pocket & Patterns Cling Stamp Set with black archival ink, cut them using their coordinating dies and paint them using Zig Clean Clear Brush Markers. The Buttons are painted and then given a coating of glossy accents. To add the dimensions to the pocket, cut the painted image and add foam tape.
The leaves from Classic rose Collection are stamped with Olive green, painted using Leaf green and cut using it’s coordinating die. Shape the leaves using Rose Shaping Mold.
