Instructions: Click here to see an up close view of this card. The ready top fold card measures 6" by 8 1/2". Choose a dark green paper from the designer paper collection and cut 1/8th of an inch smaller to the card base. Distress all the four sides with scissors and layer it on the card base using foam tapes. Now cut another mat (1/4th " smaller to green mat.) from the same collection, distress the edges and mat it on a white card stock. Layer the top panel on the top of the green mat. Cut two tags from the same collection and mat them on white cardstock. Layer the tags as shown and stick half die cut of Raindrop of roses on top and another half on the base of the tags as shown. For the Botanic window, mat 2 die cuts together, distress using seedless preserves. Sponge the window die with an adhesive that dries clear and sprinkle Frosting Powder. Dust extras and then heat set a little. Complete the window by gluing it with designer paper.
For flowers, purple flowers are stamped with Plum and painted using the cactus flower. For shaping Petunias check the video tutorial by Emma Lou https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=KOy_qNB9OAk. Centre of the flowers is made with styrofoam buds which are colored using acrylic paints. Yellow flowers are stamped with olive green and then colored using olive green archival ink. Once all the elements are ready, assemble the card as shown. Also, to complete the theme, add a sentiment from the same paper collection and add a stamped and die cut butterfly.
