Instructions: Using a bright pink sheet of the paper pad, cut a large label. Cut another from white cardstock and glue these two pieces together for stability. Construct an easel card base by cutting a 4 1/2" X 10 1/2" piece of white cardstock. Score at 5", 2 3/4", & 2 3/4". At the first 2 3/4" section, measure in 1 1/8" on either side. Cut up to the score line and then clip this piece out. Lay the decorative label over this end and pencil in the curves that are showing in white and scissor cut them out. For the next 2 3/4" section, trim a 1/4" strip on either side and clip away up to the score line. Cut a 5" X 4 1/2" piece of pink paper and glue it in place on the largest area of the card base. Fold each score line toward the pink base to form the easel. You can now glue the Enchanted label to the card base matching up the curve at the bottom, or decorate it first and then glue in place, whichever works best for you.
Stamp the Hibiscus flower four times with picked raspberry ink onto white cardstock. Color the centers of each flower with raspberry and the stamen & outer part of petals with dried marigold. Stamp six leaves with shabby shutters onto white cardstock, and color the leaves first with peeled paint and then a quick swipe of the shabby shutters to darken them up a bit. Add lime green stickles to edges of leaves. Use the above listed video to shape and construct the flowers and leaves. I used Hot Mama Prills in centers and on stamens.
Stamp the jelly fish onto white cardstock with pink ink. I used PC916, 1011, 928, 922, 911, 989, & 1006 to color it and blended with Gamsol & a blending stump. Add a little diamond stickles to darker parts of jellyfish. Stamp one set of the tiny shells onto Kraft cardstock with the cocoa ink and color them using PC941, 945, 928, 929, & 994. Coat all flowers and shells with Sparkle Mod Podge. While these are drying cut a decorative piece of peachy colored paper from pad using the pockets die. Die cut once and then turn the die and place close to the bottom of the previous cut, with out over lapping and cut again. You will have to snip a little between cut to free it up. Sponge with raspberry on the edges and glue in place on the easel bottom. Stamp "Thank You" onto white cardstock with raspberry ink, sprinkle with embossing powder and heat set. Fussy cut with scissors. Add to center of decorative piece as pictured with pop-dots. Cut strips of rhinestone and place as pictured. You may have to snip them apart to go around curves. Add jellyfish and shells with pop-dots as pictured. Arrange and glue flowers and leaves in place to finish your card.
