Instructions: This tent fold card base measures 6 3/4” x 6 3/4” (17.1cm x 17.1cm). Make a tent fold card base by cutting 6 3/4” x 6 3/4” twice, make a 1/2” fold across the top of one edge using the scor-pal then apply the double-sided tape to this. Adhere together to make the tent fold card base.
Find the design paper in the paper collection, sheet 5a. Cut this to fit the card front. Ink the edges using the Chinese red and the orange inks with the foam inking tool. When done adhere this to the card front.
Using the white card stock and the dies: Courtyard Elegance, the Elaborate Oval die, die cut these once each. Apply the Chinese Red and the Orange inks to the oval lace frame. Then apply the clear drying adhesive to both the oval and to the square frame using the hydra sponge. Sprinkle glitter on them and leave to dry. Once they are dry and excess glitter removed, adhere the square frame to the card front. Cut the oval frame in half and adhere to the top and bottom of the card front.
Make the sentiment by stamping the sentiment with the Leaf Green ink then die cut this and the background with the white card stock. Apply clear drying glue and glitter to the background. When dry adhere together using the 3D circle foam dots. Adhere the sentiment in place.
To make the Zinnia flowers: Make one smaller flower and two larger flowers. Each flower has three layers of orange petals stamped from the sheet 10b, the flower centers (x3-4 each flower) and leaves (x7) are stamped from sheet 8b, all found in the Summers Garden paper collection. The centers are made the same as the orange petals and the remaining 2-3 petals are cut away from the center and curled with the aid of the groove gulf tool by wrapping the petal around the tool at the pointed end. Each curled petal is adhered to the flower center using the hot glue gun. When the flowers are made adhere to the card front on the left and under the sentiment in a cluster. Make a triple bow from the organza ribbon and adhere in place with the hot glue gun. Add the leaves under the flowers and the ladybugs that are colored with the Chinese Red ink and shaped using the Summers Garden 3D shaping molds. Apply the 3D crystal Lacquer to the ladybugs and to the circle in the sentiment.
