Instructions: Click here to view another photo of this project. Card Size: 6 x 6”. Cut one of the square panels off at the end. Cut a 6 x 6” panel from the decorative paper to fit inside panel, cut it down to 5 7/8 X 5 7/8 then glue it to the inside panel. Add a bit of BG11 to the flowers on the paper. Pick a decorative paper to match for the front of the card then cut it with the eyelet circle of the Eyelet Window die. Then, cut off the little eyelets around the edge and cut in half and glue it to the top of the circle leaving about 1/4” border. Cut a lavender Eyelet Window Circle with the inside die in place (the more open die). Then run the die cut through again with the same inside die plus the straight line die with holes. Thread the holes with ribbon and secure both ends. Use the inside die also on the bottom half of the card circle front. Glue the lavender die cut circle to the card front matching scallops and all edges at the bottom. Cut another Eyelet Window die from white and only use the inside part of the die at the bottom then glue it to the inside of the front of card matching all edges (this just gives a bit more stability and a nice finish inside as well).
Stamp swans and small hydrangea using Tuxedo Black, die cut and color. Stamp Sentiment using Deep Purple onto matching decorative paper then die cut with Album Tags and Accents. Die cut the eyelet frame for the sentiment out of white. Glue it to the top of the card inside panel. Glue the swans to the bottom, sticking the small hydrangea in under swans on both sides using a little foam tape under the hydrangea flower balls. Glitter the inside.
Stamp the large hydrangea and 2 sets each of the blossoms using Forget Me Not on the flower and blossoms and using Cottage Ivy on the stem and leaves. Sponge the flower ball and blossoms with Deep Purple and Forget Me Not, color the leaves with Copics. Stamp the Flower ball 2 more times and cut with circle die in two smaller sizes (than the flower ball). Sponge with color then add foam tape to the bottom of each circle and stack onto flower ball with smallest circle on top. Form blossoms in the mold (see video) then glue to the flower ball until completely covered. Glitter flower then squeeze a little purple Nuvo into the center of each blossom. To get a flower with more curve for the round front I cut the stem off, glued the flower head to the top of the circle toward the left then reatta the stem so that it can curve, push leaves where you want them and secure with glue. Tie a multi-looped bow with the ribbon and glue to the stem area. Glitter the front of card!
