Instructions: Locate the "Happiness is Being With You" sentiment 12" x 12" page within the Butterfly Medley Paper Collection. Ink all the edges with a brown colored ink. Set aside and locate the the large 5" x 7" blank card panel pictured. Ink all edges of the panel with brown ink as well. Create a mask around the oval on the card panel using washi tape, and stamp the image onto the centre of the panel using black ink. Once dry, color using Spectrum Noir markers and blending solution. Next locate the paper in the collection with the blue flower clusters, and cut slightly larger than the 5" x 7" card panel. You will be using this as a mat behind the stamped image panel. Using the same paper, create a mat for your photo. Ink both of these mats with brown colored ink around all edges. Fussy cut the sentiment strip for the side of the layout, as well as the the tag sentiment located on the picture and lastly the sentiment strip used across the stamped image card panel. Ink all edges of these elements with brown ink as well. Attach the ribbon lace to the side of the layout and then the long sentiment strip on top of it. Attach ribbon to the top and one side of the image panel as shown. Adhere blue floral paper mat to the layout, then adhere the colored image panel staggered off to one side of the flower mat. Mat your photo and then adhere it to the layout. Die cut two corners from the Cut Mat Create 2B die set. Apply one corner to the top of the colored image panel and one to the opposite corner on the photo. Adhere the ticket sentiment to the side of the photo where you will be placing a flower cluster as shown. Die cut 3 lace hearts at this time as well.
Begin flowers by stamping the images onto white card stock in pink and then inking some with a darker color pink and some with a lighter color pink on the edges of the petals. Die cut with the coordinating die. Ink the back of the petals slightly as well as some of them will be standing off the page and the back side will be seen. Shape flowers using a mist of water, flower shaping mat and tools. Create some with layers and some as singles. Set aside to dry and once dry, ink each petal tip slightly with a soft brown ink. Add prills to the centre of each blossom. Begin placing the flowers along the side of the layout and create a cluster on the corner of the photo near the colored card panel. Once happy with placement adhere to page. Stamp leaves in a darker brown ink onto a piece of green patterned paper from the paper collection. Add a touch of light green to the centre of each leaf, and then die cut using the coordinating die. Ink the edge of each leaf with a darker color green. Once again using a mist of water, and flower shaping mat and tools shape each leaf. Begin placement among the flowers and adhere to page once happy with placement. Adhere the three die cut lace hearts as shown. Stamp butterfly images onto white cardstock using Gray Flannel Memento ink. Color with several different shades using finger daubers. Then add Stickles to each butterfly. Bend the butterflies ever so slightly to give them some dimension. Add to each heart die cut in the layout using 3D pop dots to give them the look of resting on the flowers. Your layout is now ready to gift, or to hang on display proudly in your home!
