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. Using Evening Evergreen ink, stamp the sentiment on the 2 ¾” x ½” Basic White.  Using the Lovely Labels Pick A Punch, punch the right end of both the Basic White and the Evening Evergreen matte for this piece. Use Stampin’ Seal to tape these layers together.
  4. Using the Bough Punch, punch a bud stem out of the woodgrain DSP.  Color this using Dark Flirty Flaming Stampin’ Blend for the buds and Light Soft Succulent Stampin’ Blend for the stems.
  5. Using Flirty Flamingo Ink, stamp the flower onto the 2” square Basic White.  Use Paper Snips to fussy cut the flower.
  6. Brush a little Wink Of Stella onto both the fussy cut flower and the punched buds.
  7. Using the Bough Punch, punch two sets of leaves out of Evening Evergreen Cardstock and one set out of Soft Succulent Cardstock.
  8. Using Crumb Cake Ink, stamp the sprig two times onto the 5 ¼” x 4” Heart & Home Designer Series Paper towards the upper left corner.
  9.  Now you’re ready to assemble your card…. Use Stampin’ Seal to adhere the 5 ¼” x 4” Heart & Home Designer Series Paper to the 5 ⅜” x 4 ⅛” Evening Evergreen matte layer. And then adhere these layers to your folded Basic White Thick card base.
  10. Using Stampin’ Dimensionals, adhere the hand cut flower toward the left side of the card just covering the end of the crumb cake stamped sprig. 
  11. Use Stampin Seal to adhere the punched leaves to the card arranging them in such a way the stems disappear under the raised flower.  Adhere the punched and colored buds on top of the punched leaves.
  12. Using Stampin’ Dimensionals, adhere the sentiment to the right of the flower. Arranging it so the left edge is behind the flower.  You may need to trim a bit off from the left edge if it’s too long.
  13. Adhere the narrow Pink Shimmer strips just below the flower and the sentiment leaving a narrow space in between the two strips. 
  14. Tie a double bow from Linen Thread and using a Mini Glue Dot, adhere this to the card just below the flower. 
  15. Scatter 3 polished dots on the card to complete.
  16. Stamp and decorate the 5 ¼” x 4” Basic White for the inside and attach with Stampin’ Seal.
  17. Decorate your envelope.
  18. Lovely! Now it’s ready to send off to brighten someone’s day!.
