Instructions: Begin with a 5" x 7" card base. Choose a soft patterned paper from the collection for your background, cut to fit card and ink all edges using a brown colored ink. Next choose a patterned paper to go over the the first paper, covering it fully to both side edges, but allowing a section of the initial paper to show through on the top and bottom. Ink all edges with brown ink. Adhere two pieces together. Die cut the decorative oval using white card stock. Adhere to centre of card as shown. Locate the card panel with the circle image as shown on card. Die cut using the Spellbinders circle die. Ink edges with brown ink and adhere to side of card as shown. Cut out sentiment strip from the paper collection, ink with brown color and adhere to card. Adhere ribbon to both top of sentiment strip as well as bottom using scor-tape. Stamp sentiment circle using grey ink and die cut. Using a punch or circle die, create a background piece for the sentiment circle using coordinating paper. Pleat the seam binding ribbon around the back of the sentiment circle. Apply to card using 3D pop dots.
Stamp the vining fuchsia image onto white card stock and color using blendable pencils and blending solution. Fussy cut to use as background for foliage and flowers. Stamp all three fuchsia sizes onto white card stock and heat emboss. Apply pink color for top of flowers. For the largest bloom, layer all of the flowers once shaped into one, working from your largest to your smallest. (I have used the largest flower as the base and then used the next sizes down to fill it in. I have actually put one flower on one half of the inside of the large flower and then filled in the other half with another shaped flower so later I will have a centre between them to add the double stamens. I have continued this until I have used all of the flowers I have stamped and embossed. I have then used the two larger stamens and adhered them to the centre.) Using the two star shaped portions of the flowers that you have left over, shape them into a ball to form a bud. Stamp the mid sized fuchsia set and heat emboss. Add color to the top of the flower, shape and put together. Repeat with the small sized fuchsia set. Stamp several of the leaf images using black ink and lightly color using blendable pencils. Apply several shades of green colored inks to just the edges of the leaves. Shape and set aside to dry. Using the swirling leaf die from the Cut Mat Create 2A, die cut one die cut and snip into various pieces to use as fillers. Arrange leaves, flowers and swirls and once happy with arrangement adhere to card. Apply half pearls to decorative oval die cut and whole pearls to the tops of each of the flowers and bud. Create bow and add to card. Apply stickles to each petal of the flowers. You now have a beautiful any occasion card ready to send to someone special to let them know you have been thinking of them!
