Let’s Create

  1. Affix all stamps to acrylic blocks.
  2. Fold and burnish card base using bone folder.
  3. Attach the large white panel to the card front.
  4. Add the long strip of dsp to the strip of Calypso Coral.
  5. Add the strip from Step 5 to the left side of the card front about ¼” from the side of the White panel.
  6. Use Calypso Coral ink and the middle flower to stamp it randomly 3 times on the small White panel.  See photo above for placement.
  7. Create 3 masks using masking paper and the middle flower.  Here’s how:
    • Stamp the middle flower on three pieces of Masking Paper
    • Die cut or fussy cut each flower.
  8. Place the three masks over the 3 flowers you stamped. These will protect your flowers while allowing you to stamp more images closer to the flowers.  
  9. Ink the leaf spray as below and then stamp on the White panel filling in the white spaces around the three flowers.
    1. Ink the leaf spray with Parakeet Party
    2. Use a sponge dauber to apply some Pretty Peacock ink to the stamp similar to the leaf sprays in the DSP
  10. Remove the masks.
  11. Add the panel from to the Calypso Coral panel.  Add this panel to the card front using dimensionals centering it on the large White panel and not the card base. 
  12. Add Iridescent Rhinestones on the right side of the card front.
