Instructions: Click here to view a larger photo of this project. You will be making two boxes to create this easel card. Cut 4 pieces of Light Green Cardstock for the Box sleeves at 4 x 8 1/4" score them at 2 3/4", 3 7/8", 6 5/8" and 7 3/4" you have left 1/2 inch, put glue or tape on this and close the sleeves. Cut 4 pieces of Light Green Cardstock for the boxes at 4 3/4 x 6 1/8" score them 1 inch on every side then cut in to 2 sides till the score line and fold them into a box. Take your circle punch and punch a half circle on 1 side on the top of the box, make a hole under it. Take a flower stamen and put it into a spacer and put the whole thing in the hole of the box like a knob, cut off the wire and roll it up on the inside. Now put all the boxes in the sleeves and put them on a piece of the 6 3/4 x 6 3/4 Cardboard and glue or tape them down. On top of that you glue the other piece of cardboard. Cut a piece of design paper 6 1/2 x 6 1/2", ink the edges with the Vintage photo and glue this on top. Cut a piece of the light green cardstock at 6 x 12 inches and score it on 3 and 6 inches. On the side of the 6 inch piece you can make a nice edge with the Regal Borders and pockets Die, glue this on top of the design paper. Now cut a piece of the same Green cardstock at 6 x 6 inches and make a nice edge with the same edge die on 1 side, glue this piece on the 3 inch piece of cardstock so that it stands up, with the nice edge on top (easel card). Take 2 straws and cut them in different lengths and glue them in front of the standup flap so that it can't slide flat, Ink the straws with some Vintage photo.

Now for the box cut a piece of the Light green of 6 x 6 inch and score all the way 3/4 round then cut in 2 sides and fold and glue the box together, then for the lid do the same as the box but first glue a piece of design paper on top then make a hole in the center with the large circle die, then glue a piece of acetate behind it. For the inside of the box you can use the circle and glue it down in the center make a few flowers and use 1 in the box, glue it down with foam dots then it is a little bit 3D put a Rhinestone butterfly in it, now you can close the box by gluing the lid on it. Take some silver tape and glue this around the box, now glue the whole box on top of the card.

I found the fairy on Internet here and I traced it in my silhouette machine and cut it out of black cardstock and glued it on the right upper corner, put some stickles on her wings and give her a flat back pearl in her hands.

Now make all the flowers see further down in the instructions how to, then make a nice arrangement on the front, the rabbit is standing against a piece of acetate, I ordered the Rabbit on line here, I cut his arm loose and put some flowers in it.

Stamp the Big peony flowers with the Peanut Brittle on White cardstock and cut them out with the coordinating die, make a hole in the center, color them with tangelo and fossilized amber. Take a big bead and pull a wire through it cover the whole bead in glue and dip it in the (train) sand, then put it in the hole of the flower and glue it down! Pull the leaves a little bit to the back, then your 3D coneflower is done.

Stamp the coneflowers with Rich Cocoa on White cardstock and color them with the Vibrant Fuchsia, and the yellow ones with Fossilized Amber and in the center tangelo, for the leaves I used a mix of the bamboo leaves and leaf Green. Put some glue on all of the coneflowers tops take some of the (train) sand and dip the tops in that, now you have nice pollens on top of your flower! And on top of the flower petals you can put a white line with the white marker.

Stamp 6 mini flowers in the green, also on white cardstock. These will form the bottom of your buds. Die Cut all petals and leaves.

Now colour all the petals and leaves using the same ink colours that you stamped them in.

One at a time hit each foam petal with a tiny amount of heat with your heat gun and as soon as it starts to curl, quickly roll and scrunch it in your fingers. Set aside and continue with the rest. When they are all curled, start gluing them together to make your 4 main flowers (4 petals each) and the three mini flowers (2 petals each). Add matching stamens to each flower. Randomly add a little glue over each flower and dip into the glitter, tap off excess and set aside to dry.

To make the buds, add a small bead to a three inch piece of thin florist wire curling it around a bead to hold it in place. Next thread one foam petal, apply hot glue and curl petals around bead to hide it. This will give your bud volume. Using you blending tool shape the tiny green flowers into a cup shape, thread them onto the wire, add a little hot glue and curl up over the bottom of the bud. Wind some florist wire onto each wire to give a realistic appearance.

Die cut a "Decorative Oval" from white cardstock and stick to the front of a gift bag.

Adhere to the canvas using double sided adhesive tape. From the pad, take the "You are Beautiful" paper with the blue and yellow roses and trim it to 8 3/4 X 10 3/4 inches with the sentiment remaining intact at the bottom left hand corner.

Position the shadowbox to the canvas, centering it towards the top right corner about 1 1/2 inches down from the top edge of the canvas and about 1 inch inward from the right edge of the canvas. Before adhering the shadow box to the canvas, place the Sweetheart Die cut onto the canvas and adhere it so that the top 1/2 inch will sit underneath behind the bottom of the shadow box. Adhere the shadow box to the canvas with double sided adhesive tape.

Using the Luggage and Tags die set, die cut the matching small tag from the paper pad with blue and yellow roses.

Using daubers, color the roses on the Blushing Rose Stem wreath with Ranger Archival Ink in Aquamarine and the leaves in Memento Cottage Ivy and the leaf centers with Ranger Archival Ink in Vivid Chartreuse. Color the Blushing Rose Stem leaf vine using the same colors as the leaves on the wreath. Color one of the three small rose stems with Ranger Archival Ink in aquamarine and the other two small Blushing Rose stems with with Ranger Archival Ink in Buttercup, using Memento Cottage Ivy and Ranger Archival Ink in Vivid Chartreuse for all the leaves. Set these two yellow Blushing rose stems aside.

For the inside of the shadowbox, use 3D foam tape to adhere the Blushing Rose Stem leaf vine on the left side of the window. Use 3D foam tape to then adhere the die cut tag with ribbon over top of the leaf vine, towards the right. Take the blue Blushing Rose stem and adhere it to the center of the tag with 3D foam tape as well.

For more tips on creating with the Backyard Blossoms collection, watch the tutorial at https://youtu.be/swO34-n1HNc.

Instructions: Card size is 6 1/8 x 6 1/8". I like to do all my die cutting, shaping and coloring first. Die cut your Eyelet Oval die with the center also cut out on white cardstock. TIP: Use an antistatic pad to wipe your vellum first before stamping, it creates a static free environment so that only your stamped image is embossed. Using the Blossoming Coneflower and Butterfly Kisses Stamp sets stamp your images using your White Versacolor Ink, then cover completely in white embossing powder, shake of the excess and heat with your heat gun, don't get too close to your vellum or it will get a brown tinge. I have colored the Coneflower border using Zig markers. When coloring on vellum use a permanent marker, I like to color on the back of the image for a neater effect. I have used the Evergreen for the leaves and stems, the Wheat and Pure Orange for the flowers and the Pure Brown for the flower centers.

Cut your card base using the white cardstock 12 1/4" x 6 1/8". Fold your card in half, I like to run a bone folder over the spine of the card to give it a clean finish. Trim the selected cardstock from the Backyard Blossoms Paper Collection 6" x 6". Using the selected quote from the Heartfelt Love Paper Collection, note you will be using your Eyelet Oval & Basics Die, this swill cut slightly into the image below and will slightly miss at the top, so take care when cutting out the image.

Now you have all your elements done, you can complete your card. Adhere your patterned background mat to your card front. Adhere your Eyelet Oval die cut slightly to the right of your card front, adhere the quote lined up in the center of the die cut (if it slightly missed the top, this is where you will adhere your twine bow). Adhere the flower border as pictured, I have placed the glue on the stems and at the base of the flower, this leaves the flower buds raised slightly. I have trimmed off the flourish pieces of the butterflies. Adhere the butterflies with adhesive only down the center of the butterflies so the wings can be folded up. Using the off-cut flourishes adhere as desired or as pictured. Tie a small twine bow and adhere in the top center of your oval die cut.

Love, love your designs and I’m thrilled to see a few this time that are suitable for all the charity fundraising cards I make. They can’t be too intricate or time consuming to make as I need and like to make 100’s . Apart from which they must be suitable for conventional posting. So thankyou for the simpler designs.
