Instructions: The size of this tent fold card is 6 3/4” x 6 3/4” (17.2cm x 17.2cm)
Taking the white card stock, make a card base by cutting two pieces of card to 6 3/4” x 6 3/4” (17.2cm x 17.2cm). Make a fold at 1/2” (1.5cm) along one edge of one of the cards. Apply double sided tape to this and adhere both cards together. Forming your tent fold card base.
Find the paper for the first matting on sheet 4a, cut two pieces, one at 6 1/2” x 3 1/2” (16.5cm x 9cm) and the other at 6 1/2” x 1.9” (16.5cm x 4.9cm). The second matting from sheet 9a, the candy stripes, cut this to 6” x 6” (15.3cm x 15.3cm). Ink the edges of all papers with the tattered rose ink and inking tool. Adhere the first matting papers to the card front. Cut the paper strips that are printed in the paper and cut about 3” (7cm) long. Ink the edges with the tattered rose ink and fold in half. Adhere to the card base between the 1st matting papers. Adhere the 2nd matting paper to the card front using the 3D circle foam dots. To make the sentiment frames, use the white card stock and the dies: Courtyard Elegance die set (the inside circle frame), Intricate swirl frames die set (the small lace oval frame, cut in half) and the Album Tags and Accents die set (the tab front and back) Die cut all these frames and ink the edges with the Tattered rose ink. Apply the clear drying adhesive to the edges of the die cuts using the aid of a hydra sponge then sprinkle or dip into the glitter. When the adhesive is dry adhere the small lace frame that was cut in half to the tab frame back so this frame will become longer. Adhere all the frames and tabs in layers to the card front using the 3D foam circle dots. The placement for this is at the folded strips in the first matting.
For the sentiment: Using the misti stamping tool, coffee ink, the white card stock, stamp the sentiment. Taking the versa-mark, stamp again the sentiment. Sprinkle or dip into the clear embossing powder and set with the heat it tool. Use the matching die for the sentiment to die cut this then adhere in place. Add glitter to the parts with dots on it.
To make the Zinnia flowers and leaves: Using the Flower shaping paper, the misti stamping tool, the coffee and library green ink, the yellow mist spray, sheets 11b and 8b, both sizes of the Zinnia stamps, dies and the 3D shaping molds. First stamp with the library green ink onto the sheet 8b for the four leaves, die cut these and bring shape to them by using the matching 3D shaping molds. Second, stamp the zinnia petals with the coffee ink onto the sheet 11b: 2x the largest size then x1 from the size down for the largest flower. For the smaller flower, the same but a smaller size. Apply a little orange ink to the petal ends and bring shaping to the petals by using the 3D shaping mold for the Zinnia flowers.
To make the Zinnia centers: use the flower shaping paper and the library green ink to stamp four petals for each flower. Die cut these with the matching die then spray with the yellow mister both sides of the petal. Cut the petals away from the petal center and curl these around the pointed end of the groove gulf tool. Using the hot glue gun adhere each curled petal to the center of the flower. Apply a little clear drying glue with the hydra sponge then dip the center into the glitter.
Arrange and adhere the Zinnias in place then add the leaves to the cluster. To finish the card, color the three ladybugs then adhere in place. Apply crystal clear lacquer to the ladybugs to bring attention to them.
