Instructions: The finished card measure 6 inches by 5 inches. Cut the card base in a white card stock to 10 inches by 6 inches and score at 5 inches on the longer side. Fold to make a side folding card. Cut a 4 3/4 x 5 3/4” piece of pattern paper from the Tender Moment Collection (#6A) and glue it to the card base. Then cut out another piece of pattern paper 4 1/4 x 5 1/4” (paper 3B) and glue it over the base with 3D foam to give dimension to your card. Do it again with aanother 3 3/4 x 4 3/4” paper (paper 6A again).
Take a watercolor paper and cut it with a square scallop die from Eyelet Rectangles & Basics Die. Take a piece of plastic (sandwich bag, etc). Put some ink on it, randomly. Add water with a spray bottle and put your plastic randomly on your watercolor paper. Dry with a heat gun and do it again with another color. I use 4 colors: memento summer sky, rose bud, new sprout and dandelion. Glue it in the center of the card.
Stamp on white cardstock animal and title of your choice from the tender moments collection with the archival ink jet black. Color it with zig-clean-color-real-brush-markers (I used peach pink, pale pink, light green, light violet). Cut it with the coordinating die. Glue your animal with 3D foam to give dimension. For the title, cut 5 more pieces in white cardstock and glue everything together to make a chipboard. Add 3D crystal lacquer on it to give a nice glossy look. Glue it in your card when dry.
Stamp little flowers from floral fashionista using different ink onto flower shaping paper, colour the centre with the same color. Colour the reverse of the flowers and diecut with the coordinating die. Place facedown into the flower shaping mold, spritz with water and run through the diecutting machine to shape. When dry, give futher shape with Deluxe flower shaping kit tools. Poke a hole in the centre of the flowers and add= stamens, secure with hot glue.
Add one flower close to you animal and make a little bouquet at the right of your title. Add leaves from French cottage collection and bloom spray from Wild aster collection (both stamp in green). Add a little bit of stickles and pink color on the bloom spray.
