Instructions: The card base is 5 x 7” (10 x 7”, folded in half) from white cardstock. Cut the coral patterned paper to 4.75 x 6.75”, and the light patterned paper to 4.5 x 6.5”. Adhere these layers to the card base, the top layer added using white photo corners. Add small gems to the photo corners. Using the Ornate Ovals die, cut the largest from white cardstock, and the next largest from light coral patterned paper. Adhere these layers together and then add to the card front using foam squares. Stamp the “Sweet Friend” sentiment onto white cardstock using Archival Ink (Fern Green). Cut the mat for the “Sweet Friend” sentiment from white cardstock and ink the edges using yellow ink (Fossilized Amber). Adhere these layers together using foam squares.
When I create photos, I like to stamp at least 2 sets of each flower size in each color. That is what I did with these flowers. Stamp 2 sets of each size of flower and leaves onto Deluxe Flower Shaping Paper using Staz On Ink (Timber Brown). Add color to the flowers using ink and daubers. The middle of each is Distress Oxide Fossilized Amber. The leaves are colored using Peeled Paint. Die cut all, and shape using the coordinating Shaping Molds. Assemble the flowers and add yellow Prills to the middle of each flower using a liquid adhesive. Let dry completely.
Adhere the sentiment to the card front using multiple layers of foam squares. Then tuck and adhere flowers and leaves around it using adhesive dots.
