Instructions: Cut some heavy beige card stock at 11" x 5 1/2" and score at 5 1/2" to create a top-fold card base. Dark brown card stock was cut at 5 1/4" x 5 1/4". Select the designer paper from the Flowering Dogwood Collection and cut at 5" x 5". The edges of the paper were sponged with Vintage Photo Distress Ink. The layers were adhered using double sided tape.
The flowers were stamped with Memento Espresso Truffle ink on hand made paper from Laos but you can use vellum or any specialty paper. The petals were sponged with the Espresso Truffle ink. The leaves were stamped and sponged with Memento Olive Grove Ink on white paper. They were die cut with the coordinating die set. The flowers and leaves were lightly misted with water and shaped using the Deluxe Flower Shaping Kit.
The three crosses were stamped from the Dogwood Chapel Cling Stamp Set and colored with Copic alcohol ink markers. The color combo was E40, E41, E43, E45, E47, G40, YG61, Yg63, B000, B21, B41. Opaque white ink was added to areas of the ground and sky. The image was die cut using Spellbinders oval die. The mat was cut using a Spellbinders scalloped die and adhered under the focal image.
The sentiment was from the Dogwood Chapel Stamp Set and stamped directly onto the bottom of the focal image.
Go Man Go Prills were added to the center of the flowers. Teal Gala Glitz was applied with Designer Dries Clear Adhesive directly to the designer paper on the left in order to peak out beneath and around the flowers. The flowers were adhered on top of the Gala glitz as shown. The focal image was popped up using dimensional dots.
