Instructions: This card measures 7.8” x 5.8” (17cm x 12.1cm) when finished.
Make the card base by taking the white card stock, silver card stock and the Royal Elegance and using the outer die cut x2 from the white card stock and x1 from the silver card stock. Using the score-pal, make a fold across the top of one of the die cut white card stock fronts. Apply double sided tape to this then adhere the two card fronts together. Adhere the silver card stock front to the card front using double sided tape. This makes the tent fold card base.
Using the large lace frame from the Royal Elegance die set and the white card stock, cut a lace frame and bring color to this using the Pale fig ink and inking tool. Adhere this to the card front. Taking the silver card stock and the inner lace frame and oval die, cut a Frame. Adhere this to the card front.
To make the flowers, use the flower shaping paper pack, the Library Green ink, the stamps and matching dies. For each Zinnia cut x2 larger sized petals and x1 one size down. These are sprayed with a lilac mist. Bring shape to the petals by using the matching 3D molds. For the Zinnia centers stamp and die cut x5 smaller petals and spray these yellow. Curl each petal of three die cut flower petals using the golf flower shaping tool. Trim the centers away from the remaining die cut flower petals, curl these also. Adhere using the hot glue gun all the zinnia petals together to make two flowers then adhere the yellow centers to each flower, two centers for the larger flower and one for the smaller. Adhere the cut curled petals to the center of these centers to form the curly centers of the Zinnia flowers. Apply a little clear drying glue to the centers with a hydra sponge then dip into the glitter. Put aside to dry. Stamp and die cut x3 smaller leaves. Spray these with the green mist then bring shape to these using the 3D shaping molds. Adhere in place using the hot glue gun. Apply the Chinese Red ink to the ladybirds and adhere in place. Apply a little 3D crystal clear lacquer to the ladybugs.
For the sentiment, make a banner and ink the sides with the Pale Fig ink and stamp the sentiment using the coffee ink. Adhere the sentiment to the card front from behind the Zinnias.
