Instructions: Score and fold a 7.5” x 15” piece of white card at 7.5” to create a square card base. Cut a 7.25” square piece of pear pizzazz card and select and cut a 7” paper from the collection – mat and layer these onto the card base using dries clear adhesive.
Make 2 pockets: Cut the front 2 panels from the fold out card and trim to 5.5” width. Select papers from the pad and cut these to the same size, adhere to the pockets. Die cut 2 of the fleur borders in white card, one of each direction. Then adhere the border to the front of the pockets.
Add dries clear glue around the edge of the largest pocket and add to the card, lining it up against the top and left side of the card. Repeat with the smaller pocket lining this up along the bottom of the patterned paper.
Make the flowers: Stamp using melon mambo ink onto the flower shaping card. Colour the centre using saffron ink and the outer petal with princess pink chalk cloud. Die cut. Edge the petals with berry burst ink. Use Chic magenta watercolour paint to colour the reverse of the petals and shape the petals whilst still damp.
Make the leaves: Stamp onto the flower shaping paper using old olive ink. Colour using granny apple green ink, die cut and colour reverse with the granny apple green. Edge the front very lightly with shaded spruce ink. Spritz with water and shape using the flower shaping kit.
Make the sprays: Stamp onto the flower shaping paper using old olive ink. Colour the flowers using the copic pens. Colour the stems using granny apple green ink and die cut. Lightly shape using the flower shaping tools.
Adhere the flowers, leaves and sprays to the sides of the card using hot glue.
When the glue has cooled, add lemoncello nuvo drops to the centre of each flower, cover with the prills and allow to dry before removing the excess.
Select and die cut 2 large tags, and 2 sentiment tags from the paper collection. Add pink ribbon to the largest tags and secure into the pockets using hot glue. Tuck the “happy days” sentiment under the fleur border using dries clear glue. Tie ribbon to the circular sentiment and add to the front of the bottom pocket using hot glue.
