Instructions: The ready top fold card from smooth card stock measures 7" by 7". To prepare the card front, choose a 6" by 6" card panel and distress all the edges with sharp scissors. Mat a layer of the white cardstock making a delicate frame of 1/16" on all sides. Next, choose an orange color paper from the designer paper collection and layer it behind creating another border of 1/4" on all sides. Finally, layer the prepared panel on the ready card base.
Choose a scenic paper from the paper collection and cut the solid circle using the largest die of Eyelet Circle and Basics Small Die set. Using the outer two dies of the same die set, cut 2 frames from white cardstock and glue them together. Adhere this frame around the scene to create a window as shown.
Arrange the ready window frame in the center of the card panel keeping 2 white die cuts of Swirly Accent Spray Die behind the circle frame.
For the foliage, stamp Leafy Accent stamp set using white pigment ink on vellum cardstock, sprinkle white heat embossing powder, and dust extras. Heat set the stamped images using a heat gun and cut them using the coordinating die set. Cascading Wisterias are first stamped with Magenta Hue, cut with the coordinating die and then color using Cactus Flower. Once all colored, then shape using Deluxe Flower Shaping Kit.
For Zinnia Flowers, stamp a couple of images from the Small Zinnia stamp set with Cactus Flower and cut them using it's coordinating die. Color the centers using magenta Hue and rest of the flower petals using Cactus Flower. Add highlights using Plum archival ink and shape them using shaping tools. Form 1 large and two small flowers. Once all the elements are ready, assemble a small bouquet with the help of hot glue and complete the card by adding some glitter and a sentiment.
