Instructions: Cut a piece of white cardstock to 8 1/2 x 5 3/4" size, score and fold at 4 1/4". Lightly sponge the edges of card base with Vivid Chartreuse ink and Rose Madder. Diecut the largest eyelet frame from the Eyelet Rectangle & Basics Die, diecut 1 frame from white cardstock and another from green patterned paper in the Summer’s Garden collection. Sponge edge of white frame with Rose Madder. Offset the frames onto card as shown. Lightly sponge some Rose Madder in a circular pattern inside the frames.
Stamp the large zinnia 3x and small zinnia petals 1x from Large Garden Zinnia Cling Stamp Set in Rose Madder ink onto flower shaping paper and diecut with coordinating dies. Stamp the small zinnia petals again, this time in Sunflower ink onto soft yellow cardstock and diecut. Stamp the large and small zinnia leaves from the Large and Small Garden Zinnia Cling Stamp Set in Leaf Green ink onto the flower shaping cardstock and diecut. Diecut the long eyelet tag & border from Ticket and Tags Die in white cardstock. Stamp the Just for You sentiment in Leaf Green onto the inner section of diecut. Cut sentiment down to 2" length. Sponge the edges of eyelet border and sentiment with Rose Madder ink.
Use the Stack and Store daubers to color the flowers and leaves. Color the backside of large and small pink petals with Rose Madder ink. Flip over and color with Pink Peony, followed by a darker shading of Rose Madder and a pop of Sunflower. Color the edges of the small yellow petals with Sunflower. Color the leaves with Vivid Chartreuse and a touch of Sunflower ink. Use a hydra sponge to apply a light touch of Crystal Lacquer over the petals and leaves. Once petals and leaves are dry, use the zinnia shaping molds and shaping stylus to shape the petals. For one of the large zinnia petals, cut off petals and curl to form petals that are not fully open. Cut off the small yellow petals and curl as well. You’ll need about 8-10 yellow petals. Use hot glue to assemble the flower as shown. For the yellow center, use a large dollop of hot glue, and attach the yellow petals. Once that is dry, add some Dries Clear glue and sprinkle with prills. Cut a piece of green cardstock to 3 1/2 x 3/4" size, and color with Leaf Green ink. Use shaping stylus to make cardstock pliable for rolling into a stem. Roll up into a stem shape, and use the hot glue to fasten.
Attach the stem, zinnia and leaves onto card with hot glue. Cut apart eyelet border into sections and attach next to zinnia as shown. Attach sentiment. Cut apart small pink petals and attach onto top left and bottom right of card as shown. Dab some Dries Clear glue onto a sponge, apply over edges of card and rest of card as desired, sprinkle with Rajni Chawla’s Crystal Clear and tap off.
