Directions:


Step 1: Cut a piece of white cardstock 12" x 6", score at 6" along the long side and fold to create a base card of 6" x 6". Cut a 6" x 6" panel from the paper collection and adhere to the front of the card.

To create the shadow box, cut a piece of patterned paper from the Camelia Carnation Paper Collection with the outdoor scene 4 15/16" x 4 15/16" and adhere to the inside back of the box. Cut a 6" x 6" panel from the paper collection and using the shadow box as template draw around the inner edge with a pencil and die cut with the square die from the Cut Mat Create 2A die set. Trim to fit shadow box and cut strips for sides.

Die cut the decorative die from the HCD1-7212 Petite Pocket Accents Die set out of white cardstock and trim before adhering to the back of the shadow box front. Assemble the box and adhere the cut frame to the front of the shadow box and the strips to the sides of the box. Adhere the shadow box to the card front.


Step 2: Cut four dies from the HCD-7190 Frame a Card Leafy Borders set out of white cardstock. Sponge with Viridian ink and add Frosting Powder to the dies. Adhere to the bottom right and top left of the shadow box.

Step 4: Stamp the carnation images from the HCPC-3806 Small Camelia Carnation Stamp set in Bright Tangelo ink on Deluxe Flower Shaping paper. Colour with Rose Madder ink and die cut with the coordinating die.

Sponge the Edges with Bright Tangelo ink and then shape using the 3D Basic Flower Shaping Mold and fold the edges with your fingers.


Step 5: Assemble the flowers using 3 of the same size and 1 smaller.

Add three peach coloured bead stamens to the centre of the flowers with a hot glue gun. Trim the ends and add Crystal Clear Glitter to the flowers.

Top Tip: Use Dries Clear glue on a damp sponge to adhere the glitter to the flowers.


Step 6: Stamp the leaf images from the HCPC-3806 Small Camelia Carnation Stamp set in Library Green ink on Deluxe Flower Shaping Paper. Colour with Leaf Green ink and die cut with the coordinating die.

Shape using the Deluxe Flower Shaping Kit. Add Crystal Clear glitter to the leaves using Dries Clear glue on a damp sponge.

Step 8: Stamp the leaf images from the HCPC-3835 Leafy Accents in Library Green ink on Deluxe Flower Shaping Paper. Colour with Leaf Green and Magenta Hue inks and die cut with the coordinating die.

Shape using the 3D Leafy Accents mold and when dry add Crystal Clear glitter with Dries Clear glue on a damp sponge.


Step 9: Trim and adhere the leaves over the top right of the shadow box.


Step 10: Stamp the rose images from the HCPC-3752 Classic Rose Stamp set in Magenta Hue ink. Colour the centres with Buttercup ink and die cut with the coordinating dies. Sponge the edges with Magenta Hue ink and colour the backs of the two smallest images with Magenta Hue. Shape using the coordinating mold.

Loved the idea, just couldn’t handle the two colors used on the flowers, tangelo and magenta just doesn’t work for me......great ideas, always enjoy your post

Beautiful card, Patricia. I really liked the use of the two different floral arrangements., with their very different colors. I wouldn’t think about that type of combination. I’ll have to try that soon.
