Elegant French Courtyard
My finished card size is 6 x 6". I made the card base out of the Deluxe Flower Shaping Paper because it is just the perfect weight for card making. Cover the card front with one of the 6 x 6" card fronts from Sheet 10A.
Using white card stock, cut out the French Courtyard Die. Glue the largest portion of the die cut to the card front. Use the circle dies to cut the backgrounds for the center portion of the card. I used more of the card fronts from Sheet 10A of the paper collection. Glue the white die cuts to the colored circles and on the one that says Happy Birthday I adhered it to the card front using dimensional tape. The center die cut was glued to a green piece of Sheet 10A and I just glued it to the center opening and it is recessed a bit. This is giving just a slight bit of interest in the card front.
Stamp the dragonfly onto Vellum with Teal Zeal ink and emboss with clear embossing powder. Allow to cool. Color the center of the dragonfly with Bamboo Leaves. Use coordinating die to cut out and glue to the card front pulling up the wings to make her look like she is in flight.
Stamp the flower petals onto Deluxe Flower Shaping paper using Lilac Posies and then color the petals with same. Cut out using coordinating dies. Stamp the leaves using Bamboo Leaves and color with same. Use coordinating dies to cut out. Lay the flower petals onto the shaping mold, spritz with water and run through die cut machine. Spritz the leaves with water and finger shape the ends until you are happy with the look. Allow to dry. Glue flower petals together and add Lemon Chiffon Prills to the centers. Allow to dry. Using a Hydra Sponge add glue to the edges of the flowers and leaves and sprinkle Crystal Clear glitter over them. Allow to dry.
Once everythinbg is dry, decide on placement of flowers and leaves; I cut the leaves apart and glue everythingf down. The card is finished.
