Other Products: Versafine onyx, bows, clear heat embossing, distress oxide broken china, twisted citron, tumbled glass, mowed lawn, hot glue, kraft knife

Instructions: Remove one circle from the 6" x 6" Round Bi-Fold Card blank and set aside, fold horizontally in half one of the remaining circles which forms the easel. On the full circle of the card blank cover with Calla Lily Paper Collection using the Rounded Sunlight Window Die and onto that adhere Rounded Window Frame. Cut Luxe Silver Cardstock with Eyelet Hearts and again in Calla Lily designer paper. Die-cut a smaller straight edge heart to the designer paper creating a frame and off-set over the Luxe Silver cardstock giving a shadow.

On the removed circle cover with matching Calla Lily designer paper to match that of the bottom of the card and on dots adhere Rounded Window Frame. Create a Rounded Window Frame as before using the Large Circle Basics. Die-cut a smaller one to create a white border inside and adhere a Calla Lily image creating a photo frame effect. Die-cut the same size Rounded Window Frame in Luxe Silver cardstock and off-set as before to create a shadow and mount the frame using dots.

Stamp in versafine onyx onto Deluxe Flower Shaping Paper the Calla Lily petals, leaves and swans and clear heat emboss, die-cut with coordinating die sets. Color the swans and small Calla Lily with Zig Clean Color Real Brush markers. Color the large petals with Distress Oxides tumbled glass and twisted citron, edge with broken china. Color the leaves in twisted citron and edge in mowed lawn, shade down the center with Zig Clean Color markers. Place in the mold and run through the die-cutting machine. Further shape with Deluxe Flower Shaping Tool Kit and using hot glue adhere the Pollen Stamens.

Die-cut from the Calla Lily Paper Collections the tags. Using hot glue adhere the Calla Lily, leaves and tag around the Round Window Frame and adhere to the easel part of the card.

Cut 2x cardstock strips approx. 5” x 1/4” score in the center and 1” either side and adhere the scored section together folding out the remaining length forming a ‘T’ shape (the bottom part of the ‘T’ is the cardstock adhered together). Set aside.

Reverse stamp the swans, die-cut and color to match the other swans. Hold the swans over the Luxe Silver heart and pierce the Luxe Silver heart in two positions (one for each swan). Poke the adhered section of the cardstock strips up through the heart and adhere the remaining sections of the strip to the underside. Adhere the swans either side of the support to hide the fixing. This will give the appearance the swans are swimming on the heart-shape lake. Adhere the swans/heart-shaped lake with dots. Adhere the round tag and Calla Lily to the front of the lake. Finish with glitters.
