Let's get Crafting!


Step 1: Take a smooth white cardstock measuring 12"x8". Score at 6" from long side. Fold it to create a 6" x 8" card base.

Step 2: For card mats, choose 2 papers from designer paper collection and cut two pieces measuring 5 7/8" x 7 7/8" and 5 7/8" x 6".

Step 3: Cut a round window from the 5 7/8" x 6" designer mat using 3rd largest die from the Eyelet Circle and Basics Small. Cut one edge of the card panel using Elegant Pocket and Accent Die.

Step 4: Using the Elegant Pocket and Accent Die, cut 2 decorative pieces from white cardstock and one using the outer die from designer paper.

Step 5: Cut a round piece from the designer paper using largest Eyelet circle Small die and stamp a sentiment using red geranium ink.

Step 6: Arrange dimensional tape on back side of round window as shown and glue sentiment.

Step 7: Cut a round frame using second and third largest circle die from white cardstock and glue it down. Glue decorative border as shown.

Step 8: Adhere first card mat on ready card base. Add dimensional tape on 3 sides of second card mat to create a pocket and mat it on card base.

Cut a strip from gold foil cardstock measuring 3/4" x 6" and a strip from pattern paper measuring 1/2" x6". First glue gold foil strip on one side of card as shown and then glue strip of pattern paper on first strip.

Step 9: Cut 2 pieces Album Tags & Accents Die from white cardstock using largest die and 4 pieces from designer paper using the inside die.

Step 10: Cut a window using Cut Mat Create 2A die on 2 tags cut from designer paper.

Step 11: Glue acetate sheet on the back side of window and mat it on tag base leaving one side open to insert photo.

Step 12: Cut white cardstock using Diamonds and Lace die (we need 2 pieces). Cut in half.

Step 13: Glue half piece of die cut on the other side of tag as shown.

Step 14: Now glue designer paper tag over the diecut and glue the other half of Diamond and Lace diecut to create pocket. Create one more tag the same way. Use the small die to cut the hole in the top of the tags. Tie both tags using a lace trim and place in the card pocket.

Step 15: Stamp Tweet Cherry Blossom flowers on deluxe flower shaping paper using vibrant fuchsia ink and cut with coordinating die. Paint flowers using tea rose ink and distress the edge of the petals using vibrant fuchsia ink. Stamp small cherry blossoms using buttercup ink and cut with coordinating die. Shape flowers using flower shaping mold.

Stamp Tweet Cherry Blossom leaves and Classic Rose leaves using olive green ink and cut with coordinating dies. Paint leaves with fern green ink and shape in shaping mold. Stamp rain boots and blossoms fillers with black Archival and paint with zig markers. Tulip fillers are stamped with olive green archival and painted with the same ink.

Adhere all of the flowers, leaves and fillers as shown.
