Iris for My Friend


Cut Deluxe Flower Shaping paper to 11 x 5 1/2" size, score and fold at 2 3/4 and 5 1/2". Cut a piece of the lavender patterned paper (sheet 12B) from Iris Garden paper collection to 5 3/8 x 5 3/8". Cut another piece of the same paper to 5 3/8 x 2 5/8" size. Cut a piece of the white flower shaping paper to 5 3/16 x 5 3/16". Cut another piece of the same paper to 5 1/8 x 2 9/16". Using from the HCD2-752 Cut Mat Create 2B Die, diecut the largest rectangle from the one side of the lavender and white panel so that they align when layered on top of each other. Do the same for the smaller lavender and white panels, except die cut from the center. Stamp the floral sprigs from HCPC-31022 Iris Garden Accents in a combination of French Ultramarine & Leaf Green on the leaf and Cactus Flower on the floral part. Stamp off the image on scrap paper each time before stamping onto bottom and left side of white frame panels as shown. Sponge the edges of lavender frames with Cactus Flower ink and the white frames with Garden Patina ink. Also sponge the center panel edges with the Garden Patina ink. Sponge some of the Leaf Green on the white panel over the area where the iris will be placed on the card, so this creates a dimensional backdrop for it. Attach the two frames on top of each other as shown. Use dimensional adhesive to attach the frames onto card. Attach the panel into the frame openings onto card. 

Stamp the flowering iris from HCPC-31020 Iris Garden Petals Cling Stamp Set in Cactus Flower ink and then Majestic Violet on the iris and Leaf Green and French Ultramarine on the leaves and stamp onto Flower Shaping paper. Stamp a second time for the 3 irises within the image. Stamp the 2 of the flower springs from HCPC-31022 Iris Garden Accents Cling Stamp Set in same colors for the flower and French Ultramarine and Leaf Green ink on the stem. Stamp 2 of the budding iris in the same tones as purple sprigs. Stamp the leaves in French Ultramarine and Leaf Green ink. You’ll need 1 large leaf and 2 small ones. Die cut all the images with the coordinating dies. Stamp the ‘For my Friend’ in a combo of Cactus Flower and Majestic Violet and then cut the words apart into separate sections. 

Sponge the centers of iris petals with Sunflower ink. Then use the Pink Peony over petals. Sponge the Garden Patina intermittently along the edges, then use the Cactus Flower along the edges as well. Add a light touch of the Majestic Violet. For the sprigs, use Cactus Flower and Garden Patina on the floral and a touch of Garden Patina and Leaf Green on the leaf. Use the same purple and green tones on the budding iris. Use the Leaf Green and French Ultramarine on the leaves. Use the yellow sponge to apply a light touch of Crystal Lacquer on the iris petals and let dry. 

Use the HCFB1-5014 3D Iris Shaping Mold to shape the leaves. Use the shaping stylus from Deluxe Flower Shaping Kit to shape the rest of the images. Pierce a hole into each of the 3 irises on the main image. Thread some of the floral wire through and attach the iris petals to each of the coordinating petals. Use hot glue to attach the main iris image onto the card as shown and add the leaves, sprigs and budding irises. Sponge the edges of sentiment with Cactus Flower and attach onto card as shown. Apply the Dries Clear glue onto yellow sponge and dab over card as desired, then sprinkle with Crystal Clear glitter. Apply the glue over yellow centers of petals and sprinkle with Mustard glitter.
