Let's Celebrate Sweet Pea

Instructions:

Card size: 5 x 7”. Start by making a shaped card base with the Flourish Companion Outer Die. Cut another front from white cardstock and from decorative paper with the same die. Cut from silver: the first decorative die in from outside and the decorative die inside the inner rectangle shape. Cut the inner rectangle shape from decorative paper to coordinate with card front. Cut a foam sheet rectangle to fit inner rectangle shape.

Glue the cardstock to card base then follow with the decorative paper card front and then the larger silver decorative frame. Next glue the foam to the small rectangle shape then glue it to the card. Glue the smaller silver frame onto card next then glitter (try to keep glue off of silver cardstock).

Stamp the sentiment with embossing ink (VersaMark used here) on vellum then emboss with silver powder and die cut with the narrow banner die, shortening it to fit words. Glue 1/8” strips of silver to each side of vellum being careful to get glue on edge only. Cut silver ends to match die cut. Set aside.

Stamp taller vase using embossing ink then emboss with silver. Die cut and sponge edges with Cactus Flower and with Deep Purple then glitter. Adhere foam strips to back of vase, set aside.

Stamp small Sweet Peas using Cactus Flower, the sepals in Leaf Green, die cut, sponge with the same inks then shape in the mold, finish with  Groove Golf Tools and Deluxe Flower Shaping Kit (use Deluxe Flower Shaping cardstock for best results). Stamp Vining Sweet Pea using Leaf Green sponge with the same plus some Cactus Flower on flower portions of vine, die cut and shape from the back with Deluxe Flower Shaping Kit.

Glue 2-part flowers together, for buds just use 1 section of 2-part flower (Use Groove Golf Tools to roll petals). Glue the green sepals to the bottom of all flowers including the buds. Glitter all flowers and buds.

Glue the vines onto the vase and adhere vase to the card at left side. Glue all the flowers and buds onto vine, now glue the left end of sentiment tucked under leaves on vine. Your card is finished!
