Project Instructions:

Other products:  White Card Stock, Pink Card Stock, Grand Labels Decorative One, Grand Labels One, Labels 42 Decorative Elements, Brilliance Ink Pearlescent Thyme, Glimmer Mist, Quickie Glue Pen, Dove Blender Pen, Pink Micro Glitter and die cutting machine.

Instructions:

Start by taking a piece of card stock folded in half and die cutting the desired size Grand Labels One leaving the left side outside the die to make your card.  Repeat with the full die cut and layer on the front to build the face of your card and finish with a die cut from the Grand Labels Decorative One using paper from the Classic Petunia Paper Collection for the panel.  To make the window, place the Labels 42 Decorative Elements die in the desired location and pass through your die cutter with the card open so it does not cut through the back of the card.  Finish the frame with another die cut from the Labels 42 Decorative Elements and the inside with a die cut from the Grand Labels One using paper from the Classic Petunia Paper Collection.  The image in the center of the card was stamped on white card stock with Tuxedo Black and die cut with the matching die and colored using the Stack and Store Daubers and a combination of Pearlescent Thyme and Rose Bud inks.  The Petunia in the center of the card was stamped on white card stock with Tuxedo Black and die cut with the matching die and colored using the Stack and Store Daubers and Rose Bud ink before shaping with the Flower Shaping tool and accented the stamens with Prills. Once the flower was shaped and assemble it was misted with Glimmer Mist for a little more sparkle!  Finally, the corner images were stamped on white card stock with Tuxedo Black and die cut with the matching die and colored using a Dove Blender pen and a combination of Pearlescent Thyme and Rose Bud inks and accented with pink micro glitter using a quickie glue pen.

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.
