Instructions: My card is 6 x 6”. Make card base and cover the front and inside with coordinating pieces of the card stock. Using one of the dies of the Pocket Accent Dies, cut the shape into the card front after you decide how far back you want it to be from the edge of the card. Next using the die for the decorative piece of these dies cut a piece using white card stock. Glue this to the edge of the card front matching the edges.
Using Rich Cocoa Memento ink, stamp the flower petals and then using coordinating dies cut them out. Color the petals using Morocco ink in the center then I blended using Bamboo Leaves ink. I did another layer of color using Dandelion and Cantaloupe inks and lastly, I did a layer of Archival Sunflower Ink on the tips of the petals. Spritz the backs of the petals and use the Flower Shaping Kit to shape. I pinched the ends of the petals and bent them to the right to give them a bit of interest. Layer two petals together and add my homemade sunflower center. It is made up of the prills and Redlands Elements. It is dark brown with a hint of red and I love the look. Set the petals aside to dry. Once dry, I used a brush and painted the petals with Glossy Accents. Set the flowers aside to dry.
Using Archival Fern Green, stamp the leaves and color with Bamboo Leaves. Use coordinating dies to cut them out. I didn’t shape the leaves but I did add Glossy Accents using a brush. Set them aside to dry.
Stamp the sentiment on white card stock and cut it out with a paper trimmer, I edged the white cardstock with Bamboo Leaves ink and then glued to a mat of coordinating paper from the collection. I cut a piece of a shipping box and glued it to the back of the sentiment piece and then glued it to the card.
I decided on the placement of my flowers and leaves and hot glued them down onto the card. The card is finished and ready to go.
