Time Precious Time


This large easel card  measures  6 3/4“ x 8 1/2"  when completed. To make the easel card base: Start by taking the white card stock and cut three times 6 3/4“ x 8 1/2“  for the card base. Cut also a strip of 1“ x 6 3/4“ for the card hinge. Using the scor-pal, fold in half one of  the card bases along the  8 1/2“  edge.

Score and fold also the hinge strip to 1/2“ x 6 3/4“.  Adhere this hinge to the folded card stock and one of the 6 3/ 4“ x 8 1/2“ card stock at the 6 3/4“ edge to make the easel card folded base. Adhere the remaining card stock piece to the folded card, from the 6 3/4“ edge to the fold to be the card front base.

Taking the sheet 6B from the collection paper pad and cut two at 6 3/4“ x 8 1/2“  for the new card front and card base. Bring the Thistle colored ink onto the paper edges with the aid of a dauber. Adhere in place with the double sided tape or clear drying adhesive. This is your prepared card base.

From the same paper pad design sheet, cut a piece 5 3/4“ x 6 3/4“, ink the edges with the Thistle ink, this will be the matting to go on top of the lace frame later.

Taking the white card stock, prepare the back ground and the Intricate Swirl Frames die to make the lace frame back ground for the card.  Die cut the frame twice. Trim away one of the longer edges of the frame about 3/4“ on both frames. Add color to all the frame pieces using the Thistle ink. Adhere the frames to the card front by using the double sided 3D foam tape. You will have a gap in between the pieces at the middle of the card, adhere 3D foam tape to this gap then adhere the cut away pieces to the card to cover the gap, place these so they extend a little over the edges. Adhere now the matting layer already prepared, this will cover the remaining exposed gap.

Prepare the pocket needed for the card: Taking the white card stock and the pocket die from the Fancy-fold Pocket & Accents die set then die cut two pockets. Taking one of the pocket die cuts, trim away the side fold lines, the underneath fold lines, leaving alone the line just under the pocket, this will extend the depth of the pocket, cut the reast away. Using clear drying adhesive, adhere the two pockets together to reinforce the pocket front. Taking the Thistle ink to color the pocket, coloring  also the inside of the side folds so you will not see the white when adhered in place. Make the folds in the pocket (the first fold on the underneath of the pocket will not be used as this enables the pocket to be lengthened.) Apply double sided tape to the folded flaps ready to adhere to the card front. When adhering, apply also clear drying adhesive to strengthen, this is also so you can slide in place.

To make the lacey corners: Using the white card stock and the corners From the Swirly Boarder Accents die set, die cut a pair of corner bases and two pairs of the inner lacey corners X 3 ( 3 layers for each corner) Color the corner base and two pairs of lacey corners with the Thistle ink and a dauber. Adhere the lacey corners layers together, three each corner, thus four corners. Adhere two of these corners to the pair of corner bases. Adhere these two corners to the pocket corners. The remaining corner pair, adhere to the card fron as shown.

To make the clock tags: Taking the white card stock, sepia ink, the Elegant Moments Timepiece sets, the Simple Moments Timepiece sets, stamp and die cut both the clocks twice.

The Elegant Moments Timepiece: Taking one each of the Elegant and Simple Moments Timepiece clocks and the matching die to fit the clock face of the Simple Moments Timepiece clock, also the die with the circle and the clock face handles in it. Using these dies, die cut all. Using the matching die to cut the fancy frame around the clock face of the Simple Moments Timepiece clock. Bring color to the pieces: the clock base Leaf Green and Thistle ink with the aid of a dauber, the fancy frame with the Thistle ink and the clock face with the Leaf Green ink. Adhere together as shown using the double sided 3D foam tape or the 3D foam dots. Apply a little diamond stickles to enhance the elements in the clock. Die cut the clock base shape in a matching design paper from the paper pad and adhere this to the back of the clock. (as an alternative, you could always use the white card stock for this so you could use this to write a message or add a photo.) Make a triple bow from the ribbon and adhere in place. Adhere a flower to the knot of the bow, do this with the hot glue gun.

The Simple Moments Timepiece:- Taking the remaining Elegant and Simple Moments Timepiece clocks and the matching die to fit the clock face of the Elegant Moments Timepiece clocks, Die cut the circle. Die cut the clock handles from the circle with the matching die also die cut three extra from the white card stock, adhere all the layers together. Add color to all the clock pieces. Adhere the clock face in position on the clock base then the clock handles. Apply now the diamond stickles to highlight the elements in the clock. Adhere two leaves and three flowers to the right side of the clock bell. Taking the white card stock and the die that fits the swirly frame in the clock and die cut two circles. Ink the edges of these circles with the Leaf Green ink. Adhere to the back of both clocks, this is for the hand written message.

To make the leaves and flowers for this card: Using the sepia ink and the white card stock stamp and die cut with the matching die sets listed:  the Classic Rose, the Cottage Garden Hydrangea and the Leafy Accents. From the hydrangea petals, you will need 37 of mixed sizes, the roses you will need enough for 6 of the medium sized rose (each rose is made with 3 petal layers). The leafy accents, you will need five or six of the plain leafed vine and one of the leaf vines with the swirls in it.

Bring color to the images by using a dauber and the inks, Magenta Hue and French Ultramarine for the hydrangea petals, thistle ink for the roses and for the leaves, color with the sap green and the leaf green inks. Once the elements are colored, bring shape to the elements by using the matching 3D molds also using the flower shaping tool kit to do any extra shaping when needed. Add the blue stamens to the hydrangea petals and make the roses ready for use. You can watch the film for details on how to put these together.

For the sentiment, use the sepia ink to stamp on the white card stock and the Timepiece Sentiments set. Find the circle die that fits the sentiment from the Simple Moments Timepiece die set. From the same sets, stamp and die cut also the clock handles. The clock handles are adhered to the sentiment circle to the right of the sentiment.

First arrange then adhere with the hot glue gun the sentiment, the flowers and leaves to the card front and card base as shown. Making sure you have a card stop by using the flowers across the card base. Make a triple ribbon bow and adhere to the right side of the card base.

To finish the card off, apply a little stickles to the elements (this can be done as you go when making the card but then you need to put it aside to dry before going any further with the project which would make it longer to finish).
