Project Instructions:

Instructions:

To make this 6″ x 6″ card, let’s start with the base. Take a 6″ x 12″ piece of white card stock and scor in the middle at the 6″ mark. Next layer on a 5 3/4″ x 5 3/4″ piece of card stock from the Lush Lilac Paper Collection. Now it’s time for the squares. You will need four 2 1/2″ x 2 1/2″ squares cut from the light purple card stock. You will also need another four 2 1/4″ x 2 1/4″ squares cut from the dark purple card stock and finally four more 2″ x 2″ squares cut from the Lush Lilac Paper Collection. Layer the three layers and attach as shown spacing each equally. TIP: I used removable take so I could position them the way I wanted and then glued them down one at a time. Finally the center rectangle is made up of a layer of dark purple cardstock that measures 4 1/2″ x 3 1/2″ layered with a piece of white card stock that measures 4 1/4″ x 3 1/4″ and attached in the center over the four squares.  The lilac flowers were stamped 2 different ways.  The first way was they were stamped on white card stock using Watering Can Ink and die cut with the matching die before distressing with Dark Peony ink and shaping with the 3D Floral Basics Shaping Mold and accenting the centers with Sunflower Stickles.  The second way was they were stamped on white card stock using Versamark and heat embossed with Super Fine White Embossing powder and die cut with the matching die before distressing with Wisteria ink and shaping with the 3D Floral Basics Shaping Mold.  The images were stamped on white card stock using Watering Can ink and die cut using the matching dies before coloring with Derwent watercolor pencils and accenting with Baby Blue Liquid Pearls and Wink of Stella Clear.

Thanks for popping by.  Have a wonderful day!

About Castlepark Designs

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.
