Perfectly Purple Posies
My finished card size is 4 3/4 x 6 3/4". Cut a piece of white cardstock 5 1/4" x 6 3/4". Score down the long side at 1/4" on each side making the base piece 4 3/4 x 6 3/4". Set aside while we do the die cutting.
Using white cardstock cut out the Classic Companion Border die and cut apart at the center. Glue the edges of the die cut to the 1/4" flap on each side of the card making this into a Gate Fold card.
Use a piece of Sheet 10B of the paper collection and cover inside of the card. Stamp the sentiment onto a piece of white cardstock using Majestic Violet ink and cut out using the Ornamental Tags Die. Use dimensional tape to adhere to inside of the card.
For the belly band I cut a piece of Sheet 8B of the paper collection a bit wider than twice the width of the card allowing for the ability to slide up and down over the card. Die cut the Classic Companion Border die again and trim off pieces to glue together and decorate the belly band. Glue the belly band together in the back. Mine is a bit large but I wanted it to be able to accomodate any added dimensional pieces to the card.
Stamp the flowers and leaves onto Deluxe Flower Shaping Paper using Majestic Violet and Fern Green. Cut out using coordinating dies. I colored the flowers with Majestic Violet and Chrome Yellow and the leaves with Leaf Green inks. Lay onto the mold, spritz with water and run through the die cut machine. Turn out onto the desk to dry. Hot glue two petals together being sure to offset them. Add Prills to the centers and allow to dry. Using a hydra sponge and adhesive, add glitter to the petals and allow to dry.
I cut a bit of white string and ran it across the Majestic Violet ink pad to color. Tie a loopy bow and adhere with hot glue to the belly band. Arrange the flowers and leaves and hot glue down. The card is ready to go!
