Let's get crafting!

Directions: 

Step 1: Cut your easel card base using Deluxe Flower Shaping paper to 5 x 12”. Score at 7” and 9 1/2”. Cut purple designer paper from paper collection to 5 x 7”, ink the edges with Deep Purple ink using a dauber, and adhere onto 7” section of card base.

Step 2: Using the die from Ornate Pocket and Accents die onto a 6 x 12” Deluxe Flower Shaping paper. Diecut decorative Ornate Pocket Accent along the bottom of your paper, then remove die and align along the top of first diecut, leaving a 1/2” gap, thus creating a diamond shape in the center. Use a scissors to cut the sides of diamond shape. 

Step 3: Using the dotted corner die from the Ornate Pocket and Accents die, diecut the center diamond shape, first one side, then the other. Apply glue onto a sponge, dab randomly along decorative die and sprinkle with Crystal Clear glitter.

Step 4: Creating the center diamond shaped sentiment panel: Use large corner die from same die set to die cut a decorative sheet from paper collection, do this along the opposite side creating a diamond shape. Stamp sentiment from HCPC-3844 For My Friend Sentiments Cling Stamp Set Deep Purple ink, then adhere on the back of decorative ornate diecut using foam adhesive. Adhere onto card base as shown.

Step 5: Stamp images onto Deluxe Flower Shaping Paper. Stamp the leafy vine from HCPC-3912 using Olive ink, (2) wisteria duo and (2) wisteria trio using Olive to stamp the leaves and Rose Madder for the flowers. Stamp 3 sets of wisteria blossoms (24 blossoms) using Deep Purple ink.

Step 6: Use Stack and Store Daubers to color the centers of the wisteria blossoms with Rose Madder ink. Also color the leaves with Leaf Green ink. Diecut images with coordinating dies.

Step 7: Color the edges of wisteria blossoms with Deep Purple ink, as well as the backside of the blossoms. Also add a touch of Deep Purple onto cascading wisteria images.

Step 8: Lightly mist the back side of wisteria blossoms with mister, then shape along the back of image using the Deluxe Flower Shaping Kit, creating little cup shaped blossoms. Once dry, pinch the edges of blossoms for a ruffled look.

Step 9: Take the wisteria blossoms and pierce the center of each blossom. To create one hanging wisteria bunch, start with putting a blossom on each of the two stamens., then bring the two stamens together and slide one blossom onto both stamens, this will briefly connect them. Adhere each blossom with hot glue. 

Step 10: For the third and fourth blossoms, split the wires apart and layer blossoms on each wire. Continue until each cluster is the desired length, adhering each petal with hot glue. Here, one has 12 blossoms, one has 7 blossoms and one has 5 blossoms. 

Step 11: Cut and separate one wisteria trio, then adhere along the top center, add wisteria duo on each side. Then add the hanging wisteria bunches you’ve created, as shown and fill in with leafy vine, cutting and adhering as needed.  Add glitter Crystal glitter to flowers and leaves as desired, tap off and allow to dry.

Step 12: Along the back of the bard base adhere one wisteria trio, being sure to only apply glue to the main branch, then add foam adhesive only along the very top of the wisteria bunch, (the bottom tips of the wisteria will stand away from the card, this will allow the hanging wisteria, to hold the bottom card flap creating a stop. Doing this will create a wonderful stand to display your beautiful card. Essentially an easel card, folded backwards.

A very beautiful card, the easel design is so unusual, it really shows the card off beautifully. I hope to try to do one for a special Aunt of my late husband, she says she loves all the cards I send her (they are all heartfelt creations).
