My finished card size is 4" x 9" which is a slimline card size. Make the card base using white cardstock and cover with a piece of Sheet 8B from the paper collection. Set aside while we work on the rest of the elements.
Die cut the Star Lattice Rectangle Die out of white cardstock. Then cut the outline die for the smaller center piece of the die. I did one in white cardstock and then I cut another piece using a piece of Sheet 7B of the paper collection. Glue the three pieces together making a sort of center medallion for the card. Using a Hydra Sponge and Designer Dries Clear Glue add Crystal Clear Glitter to the larger die cut of the Star Lattice Rectangle Die. Set this aside to dry. Once dry glue down on the card front. Now take the smaller medallion and adhere it to the center of the card front using Double Dots to add dimension.
Now we are going to work on the sunflowers. Stamp the petals onto Deluxe Flower Shaping Paper using Memento Cantaloupe ink. I colored these petals in layers of color beginning with Dandelion, then Sunflower and lastly I used Goldenrod. Die cut these petals using coordinating dies and add Morocco ink onto the edges of the petals as well as the center of the petals. Next using Leaf Green ink, stamp and color the leaves and cut out using coordinating dies. Use Olive ink to add dimension to the leaves by going over the centers as well as the outside edges of the leaves. Now lay the petals and leaves onto the shaping mold spritz with water and run through the die cut machine. Turn out onto the desk to dry. Once dry using 3D Crystal Lacquer and a brush paint the flowers and leaves. This deepens the colors and adds a beautiful sheen to everything. Allow to dry. Once dry use hot glue to glue two flower petals together and then add a clump of hot glue to the centers and spoon Power Outage Prills over this. Once the glue hardens your flowers are ready to go onto the card front.
Decide on placement of flowers and leaves and hot glue down and your card is ready to go.
