1 A4 Sheet - Elegance Satin 300gsm Card.
1 A4 Sheet - Elegance Satin 160gsm Paper.
1 A4 Sheet - Gentle Gloss Photo Paper.
1 A4 Sheet Gold Mirri Card.
Off-cuts of Green Card - for Foliage.
Sticky Stuff – I used Double sided tape, foam pads and Cosmic Shimmer Glue.
Tim Holtz Distress Ink Pad – Dusty Concord.
6 pearls and Promarker (I used Aubergine) to colour pearls.
Using Gentle Gloss photo paper print out the “Menthe” (peppermint) image from the Floral toppers section on the Janet Kruskamp The Collection CD.
Mount the oval topper and sentiment onto gold mirri card leaving a narrow border.
Using Elegance Satin Paper, 160gsm, print out the matching backing paper.
Using Elegance Satin Card 300gsm measure, mark, score and cut the lines as shown. Do not fold the score lines.
Using the Dusty Concord Ink pad and a duster brush, tint the front of the card randomly.
Mountain fold the red lines, valley fold the blue lines, open out the green cut lines and ease into shape.
Using the backing paper and the Signature Decorative Trellis Background die, die-cut two sections of Trellis. Trim the trellis to fit both side panels of the card, fitting the right-angled edge of the trellis to the edge of the panel.
Using the off-cut of green card and Signature Mirrored Pairs Mini Leafy Flourish dies, cut out the pair of die- cuts.
Using the left-over backing paper, and the smallest stamen from the Signature Leaves and Stamens dies, cut out 16 stamens. Colour them using the Dusty Concord distress ink pad. Spritz with water, press an embossing tool in the centre of the stamen and gather together to form a small blossom.
If you don’t have the Stamen die from set SD005, the smallest stamen die from Signature Build a Flower SD078 can be used.
