The ready top-fold slimline card measures, 9 1/2" by 4 1/2" To prepare the card base, cut a smooth white cardstock measuring 9" by 91/2" and score at 4 1/2" on 9 " length. Crease well.
Choose the pattern paper from the designer paper collection and chop it to 4" X 9" using a deckled edge paper trimmer. Layer the panel on coordinating teal cardstock making a border of 1/16" on all sides.
Cut 2 pieces of windows from Regal Lattice Gateway Die in white and Luxe gold each. Adhere the gold one behind the white creating a shadow. Next, choose the pattern paper from the collection and add backing to the windows. Chop the bottom of both the windows by 1/2" so that once these are put on the card base they fit to create the card front for the ready card panel. Cut 2 pieces of eyelet frame Gateway Die from white cardstock and make them sit behind the windows showcasing the eyelet border on all its 3 sides. Next, cut 2 pieces from Ornate Oval die in white and adhere them behind the ready windows. Cut extras. Finally, layer the ready windows on the card front using foam dots as shown.
Also, cut 2 pieces of circle frames using Circle Basics Large Die and glue them together. Cut a solid circle using vellum cardstock and glue it behind the window. Layer this circle in the center hiding the joint of the gateway window.
Next, stamp the image from Rustic Sunflower Can & Freezer stamp set with black archival ink and paint it using Zig Markers. Once done with all the coloring, cut the images using its coordinating die set.
For Sunflowers, stamp multiple images of flower petals using Sunflower Archival ink and cut these using the coordinating dies. Paint the flower petals using Sunflower ink and Orange Tangelo Archival inks and shape them using a Deluxe flower shaping kit. Prepare 2 large and 4 medium-sized flowers. Prick the holes in the center and secure the pollens with a heat tool. Stamp one size smaller petal from the same set using Library green/ Cobalt Blue archival ink on green color cardstock and cut them using coordinating dies. Using the crushing technique, create calyx and complete the flower by securing them behind each flower for the complete flower look.
Stamp 3-4 sets of leaves using Leafy Accent stamp and Olive Green Archival ink and cut them using its coordinating die. Color the leaves using the same inks and shape them using a deluxe flower shaping kit and add glittered pearls using the glossy accent.
Stamp, color and cut a few wisteria flowers using Leaf Green Archival ink and shape them using the flower shaping kit. Add flower pollens using a glossy accent and use these flowers as fillers.
Once, all the elements are ready, assemble the card as shown and complete the card by adding a sentiment tag hanging on its spine.
