Instructions: Click here to view another photo of this project. Score and fold the front of the card base vertically in half to create the easel card base. Die cut the largest booklet frame die using the luxe gold card and adhere to the front of the easel.
Select and cut a square of paper from the collection, slightly smaller than the card base and adhere this into position. Die cut the long eyelet tag using white card and another paper from the collection, adhere these together and adhere a sentiment strip on top. Add to the card base using foam pads.
Select a paper from the collection with the window scene and die cut using the booklet basic die. Adhere this to the luxe gold frame using hot glue and secure the sides if necessary, using dries clear glue.
Make the flowers: Stamp the petals in toffee crunch ink onto flower shaping paper and colour using the deep purple ink. Die cut and colour the reverse with deep purple. Edge the petals with plum archival ink. Spritz lightly with water and shape the petals with the flower shaping tools and poke a hole through the centre of each set of petals. Thread a wire stamen through one of the petals, hot glue the bead at the bottom and secure the first set of petals around this. Add hot glue to the wire just above the first set of petals and thread another petal onto wire and hold this in position until the hot glue cools, repeat. When the hot glue has dried cut away the excess stamen.
Make the leaves: Stamp onto flower shaping paper, in bamboo leaves ink, colour using daubers with toffee crunch and new sprout ink and die cut. Edge the leaves with pistachio ink and shape using the flower shaping kit.
Position and add the leaves using dries clear glue, and the flowers using hot glue.
Add a little dries clear adhesive to the leaves and flowers using a sponge and sprinkle with crystal glitter.
