Project Instructions:

Other products:  White Card Stock, Pink Card Stock, Spellbinders Triple Tear, Brilliance Inks Moonlight White and Pearlescent Ivy, White Detail Embossing Powder, ColorBox Fluid Chalk Ink Pad – Sky Blue, Dove Blending Pen, Ribbon from my stash and die cutting machine.


Start by taking a piece of card stock 5 1/2″ x 12″ and score on the long edge at the 3″ and 6″ marks.  Flip the card stock on the long edge and make a small mark at the 9″ mark on both of the long edges.  Scor between the 9″ mark and the 3″ scor line on the opposite edge of the card and repeat for the other 9″ mare so you scor an “X”.   You can find a template here to demonstrate the shape of the card.  Using the Regal Borders and Pockets Die, die cut a decorative edge along the top of the card as shown and then proceed to cover the card with paper from the Classic Petunia Paper Collection finishing with another die cut from the Regal Borders and Pockets Die to dress up the top.  The image in the center of the card taken from one of the pre-done images from the Classic Petunia Paper Collection finished with the basket that was stamped on White Card Stock and die cut with the matching die before lightly distressing with Tuxedo Black and attaching as shown slightly bowed out for dimension.  The flower garland and flowers were stamped on white card stock with Moonlight White and heat embossed with white detail embossing powder and die cut with the matching dies.  They were colored using the Stack and Store Daubers and a combination of Pearlescent Ivy and Lilac Posies inks.  Before attaching the flowers they were shaped with the Flower Shaping tool and accented with Prills.  The Hummingbird was stamped on White Card Stock with Tuxedo Black and die cut with the matching die before being colored with a Dove Blending Pen and a combination of Pearlescent Thyme, Sky Blue and Lilac Posies inks.

I would like to extend a very special heartfelt thank you to all of my lovely followers who support me each and every week.  I truly appreciate your kindness and blog friendship.  It means the world to me 🙂

Have a wonderful day!  Hope to see you very soon.

My name is Joann and I live in Halifax, Nova Scotia with my husband Miles. We have one son who is in the Royal Canadian Navy. 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.
