Instructions: The ready top fold card base from smooth white cardstock measures 8 1/2" x 5 1/2". To prepare the top panel, choose the paper from the paper collection and cut measuring 8 1/4" x 5 1/4". Adhere white cardstock making a border of 1/16" on all sides. Further, add an extra layer of deep purple paper from the same collection making a border of 1/16' on all sides. Finally, layer the panel on the ready card base.
To create the focal window image, choose a scenic paper from the paper collection and keep aside. Cut 4 frames using outer 2 dies from Circle Basic Large Die Set and stack 3 die cuts neatly with an adhesive that dries clear. To the remaining one frame, adhere clear cardstock/Acetate Sheet cut using the outer die from the same die set. Adhere this to the stacked frames. Also cut a frame using outer 2 dies from Eyelet Circle & Basics Small Die Set and adhere to the already prepared window. Adhere the scenic paper behind the window and cut extras. You can also use the Circle Basic Large die if you want and glue the ready window on the ready card panel as shown.
Cut 2 die cuts from Decorative Medallion Die set using white cardstock and one die cut using the same die from golden mirror card stock. Stack all the die cuts keeping golden one on the top. Further, layer the Medallion as shown.
For the flowers, Stamp multiple images of mixed florals from Wild Aster Cling Stamp Set on Deluxe flower shaping paper using Plum Archival Ink and cut them using their coordinating dies. Color the flowers using Magenta Hue and shape them using Deluxe Flower Shaping Kit. Prepare one large, 1 medium and 1 small flower. Also, prepare 2 buds by shaping the flowers inwards and adding an extra layer of green sepals created using the same flower and die set. For green leaves and sepals, I have used Olive Green Archival ink for stamping and Leaf Green ink for coloring. Also stamp, cut, color and shape green leafy accents using Leafy Accents Bundles. Assemble a small bouquet of Wild Aster Florals around the window as shown using hot glue. Add glitter to add extra sparkle to the flowers. The filler flowers are from Floral Fashionista Stamp set, stamped with Archival Plum, cut with coordinating die, painted using Archival Cactus Flower and shaped using Deluxe Flower Shaping Kit.
Stamp the images from Wild Aster Cling Stamp Set and Wild Aster Spray Cling Stamp Set on white cardstock using black Archival Ink and paint them using Zig Clean Clear Brush Markers. Once done with the coloring cut the images using their coordinating dies. Stack extra die cuts for extra strength as the flower image will be hanging out on the window.
Stamp the Butterfly Dreams Border on Papericious Vellum using Hero Arts white pigment ink and sprinkle white heat embossing powder. Dust extras and heat set it using the heating tool. Cut the butterflies using its coordinating die. The butterfly required is then further trimmed off from the border and attached using tacky glue on the ready card as an extra accent.
