Instructions: The finished size of this card is 13 cm x 18 cm. Select the card base that is standing in the length from the Fold out card set that also matches the die shape used. Taking two 30 cm x 30 cm Grey brown card stock cut this into lengths of 10.8 cm wide. Do the same with the design paper but cut at 10.3 cm. Using the card base as a guide align the dies on the card stock to cut the lace boarders, then trim to the length of that section of the card. This way I did not make any cutting faults. You could cut the card stock to the length wanted, but I found this wastes a lot of paper and you had to be sure of the finished size as this does not allow for measurement faults. Do the same for the design paper. Taking the structure paste, and mask/stencil, make a textured surface onto the design paper. Put aside to dry.
While drying, make the roses from the water color paper. Stamp, color, die cut and shape. Do the same with the leaves but using the gold embossing powder for the stamping. Stamp all the sentiment images. Stamp the oval shape twice as you will want to fussy cut the word "Love" and adhere in its place with 3d foam dots. Fussy cut the sentiment that has a butterfly in it, to a butterfly shape. Die cut the oval and fussy cut the circles. Use the Walnut stain to ink the edges. Cut the wreath out x 7. These will be trimmed and layered to fit behind the sentiment circles and oval as you go. Once the structure paste is dry, distress the edges of the paper then adhere the card stock and design paper to the card base. Apply gesso to the card stock lace borders and the wreath edges. Adhere the sentiments to the card, trimming the wreath as you go so it will become matting for the sentiments. Arrange and adhere the roses and leaves around the sentiment. Add a few of the clear bubbles in and around the arrangement. If you do not have these bubbles you could replace them with matching beads, half pearls or mini buttons. When all is dry and secure, apply stickles to the lace edges, buckle clasp, butterfly wings and add a few dots near the flower arrangement.
