Instructions: Card base is 6x6". Cut a 6x6" dark green from the paper collection, then a lighter green paper 5.75 x 5.75", ink the edges with leaf green archival ink. Assemble the box cutting a frame using the cut mat create die as well as a scenery piece for the inside. I also cut strips to go on the sides for the shadow box card.
Cut and Stamp on white card using coffee archival ink 3 sets of classic sunflower; the coneflower images and the Gardens edge wheat and sunflower edge. Also stamp the leaves form the delightful daisy as well as a classic rose vine. Cut out two tags using the luggage and tag die and mat these in dark green. Also cut out the Decorative Medallion Die. The top piece in white card and the bottom mat die in the same green as the card base. This will attach to the left side of the shadow box. Color the Creative Embellishments chipboard green with leaf green archival ink and adhere this to the back of he shadow box and on top of the 2 card panels.
Color all your leaves using the archival inks and the distress inks on the flowers. Create the cone flower by cutting a sunflower in half; and placing dries clear on the cut edge then gluing it down on the stamped image. Add some seed beads to the centers of the sunflowers as well as the small sunflower spray for the inside of the card. I created two large coneflowers and left most of the sunflowers single layers.
Place the smaller sunflower edge inside the base of the shadow card. I placed most of my flowers on the left hand side of the card, but you can place all of these where you wish. I did place the largest sunflower on the top right corner and placed the leaves from the delightful daisy underneath.
Look for a sentiment from the collection. I used 'Have a beautiful Day' and popped this on the front near the bottom of the shadow box and I banner cut one end so it would look like a flag. Detail all the flowers and leaves using glue gloss and Crystal Clear powder.
