Instructions: Click here for a close of view of this layout. The ombre patterned paper is your background. Using a paper template that I had on-hand, I traced and hand cut the green patterned paper shaped background. Using a journal pen, I added dots around the whole green patterned paper shape. Adhere in the middle of the layout. Cut a strip of the striped patterned paper about 2” wide, I cut with the pattern itself. Using my Extreme Double Sided Tape, I adhered the lace across the layout and then added the strip of patterned paper.
Cut a strip of the pink patterned paper that is 2 x 11", and flag the ends. Adhere just to the right of centre down the middle of the layout. Find and cut out the small bordered journal block. The small bordered pink journal block and the mini tag. Find and cut out the 6 x 6" card base with the inner green border. I adhered this to the right of where my matted photo sits. Cut a piece of the dark green patterned paper that is 4 x 6.5", round the corners and adhere to the layout. Cut a strip of the wine patterned paper that is 0.75 x 8 and adhere to the middle of the layout. Add the small journal blocks and tag to the layout using 3D foam tape. I added burlap string to the top of the mini tag.
Mat your photo in white, then green cardstock and then a slightly larger layer of the wine coloured patterned paper. I added white photo corners to the photo. Adhere to the layout using 3D foam squares. Cut out 1 of the Arianna Lace die in white cardstock. Cut into pieces and adhere a piece in each of the corners of the layout. I added gems to each.
Stamp and die cut 1 of the Petunia Bouquet, and the Large Petunia. Stamp and die cut 2 of the larger flower from the Small Petunia. Stamp and die cut 3 of the smallest Small Petunia. Die cut 1 of the small stamen from white cardstock. I added gradient colour to my leaves and flowers using Chameleon Pens. I then dusted the tips of the petals and leaves with slightly darker ink. Shape and assemble the flowers and shape the leaves. Add Prills to the middles of all of the smaller flowers. Adhere the bouquet to the left hand side of the matted photo and add the largest flower on top. Using liquid adhesive, add Prills to the stamen in the middle. Add a small flower just below and just above the large one. Tuck leaves here and there. Note: I cut apart my leaves into singles and place them myself.
Add a medium flower below the matted photo. Find and cut out the “Wonderful Day” banner. Shape and adhere to the right of the medium flower. Add the other medium flower and a smaller one below, to the right of the matted photo. I then added pearls and gems around the flower clusters.
