Perfectly Pink Magnolias


Cut a piece of white cardstock to 8 1/4” x 5 1/4” and score at 1” along the 8 1/4” side. This will create a 1” flap along the top of the card base. Die cut this with the flap folded and at the top using the largest die from the HCD2-7381 Fancy Classic Oval Frame Die, and make sure the top of the die hangs over the top edge of the paper to prevent cutting the fold. Now using white card stock with the same die, cut 2 more times. To construct the card base turn the flapped piece so that the flap is faced down and attach one of the full pieces to the back side of the flap giving the back of the card base a full backside. This allows the flap to be glued into the inside back of the card which will be covered up with decorative paper when finishing the inside. Score the front of the card base in half and form a mountain fold. Now attach the second full piece cut to the bottom half of the card front to form the easel card. Cut 2 last pieces with that largest die from the Fancy Classic Oval Frame Die from the HCDP1-2126 Sweet Magnolia Paper Collection, one for the inside to cover the flap (sheet 6A) and one for the front (sheet 12 B) of there card. Next using the second largest frame from the Fancy Classic Oval Frame Die set cut one from the paper used on the inside of the card and one from Luxe Silver Cardstock. When die cutting with this die two pieces are cut. The thin border die and the inside die. See photo how to layer these and glue the two layers shown to the card base. From Sheet 6A cut the center die cut using the two smallest dies from the same die set. Using just the oval outline, cut one from Luxe Silver and layer these two and glue together. Attach using 3D foam dots. Lastly on Sheet 6A stamp the sentiment from the HCPC-3845 Just For You Sentiments Cling Stamp Set using Magenta Hue Archival Ink. Die cut the sentiment, and then the border paper, from Sheet 12B, using the HCD1-7201 Ticket and Tags Die set. Set aside to attach at the end.

Stamp the HCPC-3949 Sweet Magnolia Buds 2x onto white cardstock using Coffee Archival Ink and color using the Stack & Store Daubers with Desert Sand Memento Ink, Magenta Hue, and Vivid Chartreuse Archival Inks. Die cut with the coordinating die. Next stamp the HCPC-3948 Sweet Magnolia Blooms Cling Stamp Set 2x small and 2x medium in Magenta Hue ink stamping off once to give a lighter hue. Die cut these with the coordinating dies then lightly ink the edges with the Magenta Hue ink before shaping in the 3D shaping mold. Shape a little extra with the Deluxe Flower Shaping kit before piercing a hole in the center of each flower and adding the Bridal Bouquet Stamens with hot glue. Add glitter using Dries Clear Glue applied with a Hydra Sponge. Stamp 2-3 branches from the HCPC-3835 Leafy Accents Cling Stamps Set in Olive Archival Ink. Color using Leaf Green Archival Ink before die cutting. Once die cut shape with the coordinating 3D Shaping Mold and then ink the edges with Bamboo Leaves Memento Ink. Lastly, Stamp the smallest dragonflies 3x from the Decorative Dragonflies Cling Stamp Set with Watering Can Archival Ink and color with detailed brushes using Magenta Hue, Sunflower, and Leaf Green Archival Inks. Glitter with Crystal Ultra Transparent Glitter. 

To complete the card, arrange the Magnolia buds along with the foliage to give a nice background for the lovely Magnolia blooms. Then arrange the flowers on top and glue down with a glue gun. Tuck in the sentiment previously made using 3D Foam dots. Attach the 3 little dragonflies with Dries Clear Glue to finish the front. Then finish the inside by creating a stopper for the easel card. Die cut the center medallion 3x from the HCD1-7398 French Courtyard Die. Glue these together and then glue them in place inside the card so that the front panel will stand up.
