All a Flutter Sunflowers
The ready side-fold card measures 8 1/2" by 6 1/2". To prepare the card base, cut a smooth white cardstock measuring 8 1/2" by 6 1/2" and one-piece measuring 8 1/2" by 7". Score the second piece at 1/2" on 7" length to make the hinge. Crease well and adhere to the first piece on top of the hinge.
Choose the pattern paper from the designer paper collection and chop it to 7 3/4" x 5 3/4" using a deckled edge paper trimmer. Layer the panel first on white cardstock making a border of 1/16" on all sides and then on coordinating teal color cardstock making another 1/16" border on all sides. Layer the ready panel on the card front.
Cut a white frame using an outermost die from Eyelet Frame Gateway Die and the window die from Teardrop Lattice Gateway Die. Choose the coordinating paper and cut another frame using the 3rd die from the Eyelet Frame Gateway die and layer on top of the already ready frame. Use double-sided tape for extra dimensions.
Next, stamp the images from Rustic Sunflower Can & Freezer stamp set and Rustic Sunflower Cling Stamp Set using black archival ink and paint them using Zig Markers. Once done with all the coloring, cut the images using their coordinating die sets.
Stamp the butterfly image from Floral Butterfly Accents Cling Stamp Set with Versafine on Rajni Chawla's Vellum Flowerite and sprinkle gold heat embossing powder. Dust extras and heat set the image using heat tool. Cut the butterfly using it's coodinating die. Shape the butterfly with your hands.
For Sunflowers, stamp multiple images of flower petals using Sunflower Archival ink and cut these using its coordinating dies. Paint the flower petals using Sunflower ink and Orange Tangelo Archival inks and shape them using a Deluxe flower shaping kit. Prepare 2 large and 4 medium-sized flowers. Prick the holes in the center and secure the pollens with the heat tool. Stamp one size smaller petal from the same set using Library green/ Cobalt Blue archival ink on green color cardstock and cut them using coordinating dies. Using the crushing technique, create calyx and complete the flower by securing them behind each flower for the complete flower look.
Stamp 3-4 sets of leaves using Leafy Accent stamp and Olive Green Archival ink and cut them using its coordinating die. Color the leaves using the same inks and shape them using the deluxe flower shaping kit and add glittered pearls using a glossy accent.
Stamp, color and cut few wisteria flowers using Leaf Green Archival ink and shape them using the flower shaping kit. Add flower pollens using a glossy accent and use these flowers as fillers.
Once, all the elements are ready, assemble the card as shown and complete the card by adding a sentiment from For My Friend Sentiments Cling Stamp Set on the tag from Album Tags and Accents Die.
