The finished size of this square tent fold card is 6.299" x 6.299" (16 cm x 16 cm)
To make the flowers: Taking the design paper scraps from the collection use the classic rose stamp and die set to make the rose petals. Use the distress inks to bring color to the leaves, rose petal tips and centers. Spray the petals and leaves with the water mister, place in the rose mold then put the mold through the die cutting machine twice to get a good press. (Do not make the paper or card-stock too wet as the paper will break in the mold when you put it through the die cutting machine. If you do make it too wet, leave to dry until they are just moist just as you would when balling to bring shape to the petals with the tools.) For the blue / green colored flowers, these are sprayed with the Lindy's stamp gang sprays-Grab a Guy Gold, Hydrangea Blue, Ponderosa Pines Olive Spray, also the cut away inner part of the eyelet frame that was put aside. Leave to dry a little, as the petals will still be too wet. When ready put these through the machine in the rose mold. Take the petals out of the molds with the aid of the piercer tool found in the flower shaping tool kit. Leave the shaped petals to dry completely. When dry, shape the centers so the petals cup up. Prick a hole in the petal center so you can thread the stamens through the opening. The stamen colors used are the pink and the green found in the bright pearl assortment bundle. Take three stamens, fold in half then thread the stems through the hole. Secure at the back with the hot glue gun. When the glue is cooled off, trim the excess stems away.
To make the card base: Taking the white cardstock, cut the card base to 6.299" x 6.299" (16 cm x 16 cm) x2. In one of the cards make a 0.59" (1.5 cm) fold in the top, add double sided tape to the fold. Placing both pieces together this will form the tent fold card base. Taking the orange card-stock cut matting (15 cm x 15 cm) And (14.5 cm x 14.5 cm). Find from the paper collection the design paper used and cut this a little smaller than the card-stock mattings. Adhere together the matting and matching design paper using double sided tape or clear drying glue. Stamp the sentiment with VersaMark, sprinkle with gold embossing powder and heat set with the heat tool. Adhere the two layers together using the 3d foam tape or dots. Adhere to the card front.
Using the above inks, stamp, diecut and color the Butterfly Dreams Border 2 times. Fussy cut the butterflies from the second one, color and shape them using the Deluxe Flower Shaping Kit and adhere to the first diecut to give the butterflies dimension. Using the Fleur Border Basics plain dies, cut out the Butterfly Border. From orange cardstock, cut two borders from the Elegant Border Basics dies and adhere to the Butterfly Dreams border. Adhere the border, flowers and leaves to the card base as shown.
Add stickles to the flowers, leaves, butterflies and borders. Using a sponge and dries clear glue, add Rajni Chawla's Crystal Clear to the butterflies.
