1 A4 Sheet Foundations Milk Card.
1 A4 Sheet Foundations Black Card.
1 A4 Sheet Photo Paper.
1 A4 Sheet Elegance Satin Paper 160gsm.
Off cut of Green Card.
Sticky Stuff – I used Cosmic Shimmer Glue, Foam Pads and Double Sided Tape.
Tim Holtz Distress Ink Pad – Tea Die.
Tim Holtz Distress Ink Pad – Antique Linen.
Inkylicious Ink Duster.
Using Gentle Gloss Photo Paper print out the topper sheet from the JS Janet Kruskamp “The Collection” CD.
Using Elegance Satin Paper, 160gsm, print out the matching backing sheet.
Landscape orientation, score an A4 sheet Foundations Milk card in half vertically (shown by the mountain score red line).
Using a Tim Holtz Distress Ink pad – Tea Die, and an Inkylicious Ink Duster, colour the edges of the card and along the score line, as illustrated.
Fold the card in half and turn to create an A5 tent-fold card.
Using the Decorative Trellis Background Die, cut out a trellis from the backing paper.
Cut out and mount the second largest topper onto layered mats of black card, backing paper, and black card leaving a narrow border between each layer.
Cut out and mount the sentiment to complement the topper.
Using black foundations card, die-cut the Curly Flourish.
Using the off cut of green card die-cut two of the smallest three petal die from the Build A Flower die. Separate the petals and using a pokey tool draw veins on each leaf.
Arrange and mount the elements on the front of the card. I attached the topper and the sentiment using foam pads to add dimension.
Using the left-over backing paper and the JS Build a Blossom Die set, die-cut five of the smallest three petal die to build each flower. I cut 15 to build three flowers.
5.1 Using the smallest stamen cut six in orange and three in dark green for the flower centres. Cut out three small circles approx. 5p size for the flower base.
5.2 Tint the underside of each blossom using the Tim Holtz Antique Linen Distress Ink Pad.
5.3 Trim the points off each petal feathering the edges.
5.4 Using a large 6.mm embossing tool curl each petal.
5.5 Glue the curled petal section onto the small circle of paper.
5.6 Build up five layer of petals alternating the petals. Shape the curls to look natural.
5.7 Glue two of the orange stamens on top of each other. Gather the green stamen to a point and glue onto the centre of the orange stamen. Trim approx.1mm off the point of each stamen, so they will fit inside the flower.
5.8 Glue the stamens inside the centre of the flower.
