Project Instructions:

Other products:  White Card Stock, Pink Card Stock, Distressed Inks (Worn Lipstick, Forest Moss), Embossing Powder (Party Pink), Tim Holtz Distressed Markers (Forest Moss and Peeled Paint & Worn Lipstick), Wink of Stella Pen, bling from my stash and die cutting machine.

Instructions:

Start by cutting this template 2 times, one from White Cardstock and one from a piece of paper from the Butterfly Medley Paper Collection.  For the designer paper layer, you will need to trim the pieces a little smaller so the card folds.  Once your layers of paper are assembled, stamp the Botanical Rose Bouquet Cling stamp (both stamps that come in the package).  Fussy cut both the larger image and adhere to the front diamond fold.  The second smaller image will be used for inside left panel of the card. Die-cut and distress your flowers.  The flowers were stamped with Memento Grey Flannel and distressed with Worn Lipstick and a thin coat of shimmer using Wink of Stella.  The leaves were stamped with Memento Olive Grove and distressed with Forest Moss.  Finally finish decorating as desired and try to give this beautiful card away!

Thanks again for your lovely visit.  Wishing you all a wonderful crafty day!

I have worked full time in the Finance and Insurance industry for the past 29 years. I absolutely adore all things paper & glue and have been involved with crafting in some way for most of my life. I have a great admiration for creating projects from paper that may not necessarily be made from paper. When not in my craft room, I enjoy spending time at our cottage enjoying all that nature and suburban life has to offer.
