Instructions: Click here to view a larger photo of this layout. Layout is 12 x 12”. Find the background patterned paper that I used. This is the base. Cut a strip of the striped patterned paper that is 0.5 x 12” and another that is 1 x 12”. Find and cut out the scalloped green border strip. Mat one edge of it in white cardstock and distress the edge of it. Add a cardstock mat to the 1” wide striped strip also, and distress that edge also. Add the border strip and the wider stripe strip to the top of the layout and the narrow strip to the bottom. Using the Swirly accent die, cut 2 from white cardstock. Using the mat for the same swirly die, cut a piece of light purple patterned paper to go under each accent piece. Adhere these pieces together.
Mat the 4 x 6” photo in 2 layers of white cardstock and distress the edges. Adhere them together using crafty foam tape. Adhere to the right of the layout and add the swirly accent pieces to either side of the matted photo. Find and die cut the large tag with the lace top and adhere above the matted photo and add a burlap string bow. Find and cut out the “Celebrating You” sentiment, flag one end and then add to the right hand side of the layout.
Stamp and die cut 1 of each of the small and large bloom images using grey ink (Archival- Shadow Grey) onto white cardstock. Stamp and die cut 2 sets of each size of the individual flowers using grey ink onto Deluxe Flower Shaping Paper. Add color to the small and large blooms using ink and daubers (CTMH- Fern, New England Ivy; Versa Color- Imperial Blue, Amethyst). Add color to the individual flowers using ink and daubers (Imperial Blue, Amethyst). Shape the small flowers using the coordinating shaping mold. Add Prills to the middle of each using a liquid adhesive. Let dry. Shape the leaves of the blooms using your flower shaping kit. Add the large bloom to the left of the matted photo and the small bloom to the right of the matted photo. Add individual flowers to the right and left of the matted photo.
