Amazing Pink Floral


Cut a piece of white card stock to 6” x 8 1/4” and score at 3” to form a slim line card base. Now cut a piece of HCPP1-475 Deluxe Flower Shaping Paper using the HCD3-7448 Slim Ornate Rectangle’s Largest Die. Using the same die cut a piece from sheet 8B from the HCDP1-2151 Floral Sentiments Paper Collection. Attach the pink to the white and then both to the card base centering it in the middle of the shaped card front. (TOP TIP: The attaching of the card base can be saved until the end so that there is a flat surface to build upon.) Now using the second largest die from the Slim Ornate Rectangle set, cut 2x, once from white card stock and once from Luxe Silver Card stock. Using Dries Clear adhesive, glue the white frame on top of the silver layer slightly offsetting them so that the silver peeks out from behind the white. Adhere this to the pink base just attached to the card front in the previous step. Using the same die in the last step cut once more using a piece from sheet 6A which will create the inside piece needed for the green background piece. Glue this just inside the frame.

Now using a stamp positioner, stamp the sentiment from the HCPC-31023 Special Floral Sentiment Cling Stamp Set onto white card stock using Fuchsia and Pink Peony  Archival inks to create an ombre blend. Die cut with coordinating die. Using that same die, Cut 2x more with white card stock and 1x with Luxe Silver card stock. Glue the two white die cuts directly underneath the stamped image to give the sentiment extra height. Then leaving a drop shadow, glue the silver offset quite a bit. Using the 3rd largest die from the Slim Ornate Rectangle die set, trim to fit the sentiment and over lap one segment of the lattice and glue together. (16 open lattice squares across). Now cut a piece of white card stock measuring 4 1/4” x 1” and glue to the back portion of the frame. Cut down the inside die piece to fit the recess area and glue in place. This should give a strong foundation for the sentiment to be glued onto. Adhere together then attach to the card using 3D foam tape.

Stamp the large Special Floral Sentiment stamp 2x in Lighthouse Archival Ink. Stamp the small and medium HCPC-3986 Wild Poppy Cling Stamp Set flowers 6x with Lighthouse Ink, and lastly stamp the HCPC-3912 Cascading Wisteria Cling Stamp Set 2x in Leaf Green Archival ink, all onto Deluxe Flower Shaping Paper. Using ink brushes and HCDA1-449 Stack and Store Daubers, color in all of the flowers with Fuchsia and Pink Peony inks. Once colored, brush on some Crystal Lacquer with a paint brush and allow it to dry. Also color the leaves with Leaf Green and Vivid Chartreuse. Now die cut all items with the coordinating die sets making sure to use the inside die when cutting the Floral Sentiments out. All items are hand shaped using HCST1-401Deluxe Flower Shaping Kit. When building the flowers layer 3 petals together for the medium flowers and use the Pastel Pearl Stamen -Med for the centers. For the small flowers use 2 petals each and use the Pastel Pearl Stamen - Small for the centers. 

To assemble the card take the floral frames and snip off the top section that has the butterfly on it. Save at least one of the butterflies for the project. Adhere the frames around the outer border of the card. Add the cluster of flowers and leaves to one corner and attach the butterfly. Finish off the inside with a piece of the coordinating paper to match.
