Let’s Create

  1. Affix all stamps to Acrylic Blocks.
  2. Fold the Card Base in half using a Bone Folder to sharpen the crease.
  3. Emboss the 4 ⅛” x 5 ⅜” Sahara Sand Cardstock using the Stripes 3D embossing folder from the Stripes & Splatters 3D Bundle. You’ll need to run it through twice, once on each side of the cardstock, since this is one of the narrow folders.
  4. Using Evening Evergreen ink – ink up just the large flower part of the photopolymer stamp. Because the stamp is clear, it makes it easier to just ink up a part of the stamp. Be sure to clean and dry the ink off of any part of the other flowers/stems. Stamp the stem onto the 4 ⅛” x 2” Basic White piece of cardstock. (refer to the picture above)
  5. Using Sweet Sorbet ink, stamp the large flower and the smaller flower onto the 3 ¼” x 3 ¼” Basic White. Fussy cut these to flowers and adhere them flat to the green stems covering the green flowers.
  6. Adhere this stamped panel to the 4 ¼” x 2 ⅛” Evening Evergreen cardstock.
  7. Adhere the Evening Evergreen plaid Designer Series Paper to the 4 ⅞” x 2 ⅛” Evening Evergreen Cardstock.
  8. Adhere the Soft Succulent Polka Dot Designer Series Paper to the 4 ⅛” x 1 ⅞” Evening Evergreen cardstock.
  9. Adhere the Soft Succulent Designer Series Paper layers to the Embossed Sahara Sand panel about ¾” from the bottom edge.
  10. Adhere the Evening Evergreen plaid layers onto of these layers about ¼” from the right edge.
  11. Tie the ribbon around these layers towards the lower part of the soft succulent with the bow landing towards the right side of the card.
  12. Adhere the stamped panel to the center of the card front. Hint: Put adhesive on the right edge of the stamped panel and dimensionals on the left edge. This will help the panel to sit even on the card.
  13. Adhere the completed card front to the folded Basic White Card Base.
  14. Sprinkle a few Evening Evergreen Opal Rounds from the package of In Color Opal Rounds.
  15. Stamp and decorate the inside of your card and the envelope.
  16. So cute! Now send it to someone special.
