Instructions so you can create this project too:

The ready Z Fold card from white card stock measures 6″ by 7 1/2″. To prepare the card base, cut a smooth white cardstock measuring 12″ by 7 1/2″. Score the longer side first at 3″ and next at 6″. Crease and fold the card neatly. Choose the papers from the designer paper collection and chop the paper panels for all front and back panels. Make sure the panels are 1/16″ smaller so that it creates a delicate border all around the card base. The second Z - fold measures 4 1/2" by 11"., scored first at 5" and then at 8". Crease the panel and adhere to it as shown. Choose the pattern papers and cover all the panels like the previous one making a delicate border on all sides by 1/16".

  1. To build the front shaker window of the booklet, stamp one main image of Elegant Moments Timepiece Stamp Set with black and cut open the center window as shown using its coordinating die set. Color the outer image and the center image separately using Zig Clean Clear Brush Markers. Glue the acetate sheet from behind. Cut 6-8 die-cuts without stamping and stack them together using glue. Glue the colored image and build the shaker window. To close the window, cut one solid die-cut and glue the center-colored image in the center. Fill shaker elements and close the window by gluing the solid die cut at the back.
  2. Once the shaker is ready, layer it on the front panel as shown keeping a white die cut from the Elegant Pocket and Accent die set. To the inside panel, adhere a stamped sentiment from Timepiece Sentiment Stamp Set.  
  3. For the wild roses, stamp the flower petals using Vibrant Fuchsia Archival ink and Small Wild Rose Stamp set and cut them using its coordinating dies. Ink the flowers using Vibrant Fuchsia and Leaf green and shape them it’s coordinating mold. Once the shaping is done, further add little detailing with ball tools and assemble a few flowers using tools from the shaping kit and add prills to the flower centers.
  4. For the leaves, stamp the leaves from the Leafy Accent Cling Stamp Set using Olive green Archival ink on Deluxe Flower Shaping Paper, paint them using Leaf Green and Olive Green, and cut them using its coordinating die set. Shape the leaves using Golf Groove Tools.
  5. Stamp, color and cut few wisteria flowers using Leaf Green Archival ink and shape them using a flower shaping kit. Add flower pollens using prills and glossy accent and use these flowers as fillers.

Once all elements are ready, assemble a small bouquet of flowers around the focal image without disturbing the opening of the panels.

Be still my creative heart! LOVE this card!! This latest collection of clocks is opening so many new ideas for cards, each speaking to the passage of time. This vintage clock is my favorite very feminine. On the other hand, that alarm clock would be the perfect image to use for masculine cards. Thanks for this gorgeous inspiration!!

Always have enjoyed your website. Just discovered the blog hop. Finding it to be a little difficult to maneuver through but Eventually I’ll figure it out. Thank you for the many years of beautiful and quality products. ♥️❤️♥️

There are so many talented ladies on the blog and the blog hop the cards they design are always beautiful! ❤❤❤

I so look forward to this hop because I am always inspired by the participants. My first experience in making a card was at a Heartfelt Creations Make and I have been hooked ever since. The recipient of my first card called to ask, "did YOU MAKE this card?" That just reinforced my desire to keep making flowers and cards. So I want to thank you for inspiring me and mostly for providing me with so much fun and joy!

Lovely as always. I have to add more things to my wishlist, but since I live outside the USA, I have to really think hard about the craft goodies I will buy because of shipping costs and import taxes (the cost can be higher than the actual price of the items).
