Instructions: My card is 6" X 6". Make card base and cover with a piece of the paper collection. Next I cut a piece of the chipboard lattice from Creative Embellishments to fit down one side of my card front. I painted it with the white paint and set aside to dry. Once dry I glued it to the side of my card. Stamp, cut out, the flower petals and leaves then color using the weathered wood and bundled sage distress inks. I then used the Distress Glaze to seal the color. This keeps the color from running when I wet the flower petals and shape. Once the petals are shaped, set them aside to dry. Next add the half pearls to the smaller flowers. It is time to begin placing the flowers and leaves where you want them to lie on the card front. I stamped the sentiment with Tuxedo Black Memento Ink and then used the Spellbinders die to cut it out. While the sentiment was still in the die, I added some weathered wood ink through the cut outs of the die. I used the double dots to pop it up and add dimension to the sentiment. Add a gold half pearl to the sentiment piece and the card is finished.
