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 the Zinnia 3-D Embossing Folder, emboss the 5 ¼” x 4” Pool Party Cardstock.
  4. Stamp the single Zinnia and 1 set of leaves using Black memento ink onto a basic white scrap.  Stamp the image with the 3 flowers from the stamp set onto a Basic White Scrap.  You’ll only be using the tallest flower from the stamped image.  Die cut all of the flowers and leaves using the coordinating dies from the Simply Zinnia Die set.  The only flower that will matter in the stamped image of the 3 flowers is the tallest one.  Die cut to get the most of the shape and then cut it apart from the others.  Or if you don’t mind fussy cutting, you could just fussy cut the whole flower.
  5. Using Stampin’ Blends, color your images.  I used Pretty Peacock, Melon Mambo and Daffodil Delight. I also used the color lifter on the leaves to lighten the color a bit.
  6. Using the small stem with the 2 leaves attached, die cut 2 stems from Pretty Peacock cardstock. 
  7. Stamp the sentiment using Pretty Peacock ink onto Basic White Cardstock.  Die cut using the largest  banner die from the Stylish Shapes Die set.  The sentiment is a bit tight for this die.  DIE CUTTING TECHNIQUE: I enlarged the size the die will cut by cutting just part if the image –  from one end to about an inch to the other end.  Pull the image and the die from the  cutting machine without going the rest of the way.  Reposition the die at the other end to make the sentiment fit, you can easily feel where the die should line up with the part that’s cut. Put just the uncut end through the die cutting machine.  You can use this technique with many of our labels, and shapes, to enlarge the opening. 
  8. Wrap a piece of the Pretty Peacock Ribbon around the Embossed Pool Party Cardstock and tape on the back.  Using Stampin’ Seal, adhere the Pool Party cardstock to the 5 ⅜” x 4 ⅛” Pretty Peacock cardstock.  Adhere these layers to the folded Card Base.
  9. Take another length of ribbon approximately 4” and fold in half having the ends staggered just a bit from each other.  Trim the ends at an angle making one end a tad shorter than the other.  Tape this to the ribbon that has been wrapped around the card in a place where it will be covered by the flower.
  10. Adhere the large Zinnia with Stampin’ Dimensionals.  Position the smaller flower above the larger flower, taped flat.  Position the stems for both of the flowers and tape in place.  
  11. Using Stampin’ Seal, tape down the stamped and colored set of leaves where you would like.
  12. Using Stampin’ Dimensionals adhere the sentiment label towards the bottom of the card.
  13. Randomly place 3 Pretty Peacock Foiled Gems to your card.
  14. Don’t forget to decorate the inside of your card and the envelope.
