DIRECTIONS

  1. Trim the white cardstock to 3 ¾ inches by 5 inches and set aside. From the scrap, punch out an oval piece for the sentiment stamp. Set the rest of the scrap aside for stamping in step 9.
  2. Trim the colored cardstock to 8 ½ inches by 5 ½ inches. Fold in half and set aside.
  3. Place the large flower stamp with the dotted edge on the acrylic block. Ink the stamp with Periwinkle and press the image onto the white cardstock, in the upper-left corner. Stamp two additional flowers on the card front in a triangle shape, re-inking between each image. Be sure to leave enough space between each image for the center flower bunch.
  4. Clean the stamp with a baby wipe or damp paper towel and remove from the acrylic block.
  5. Tap a Smooch Accent Tip to the Limon inkpad and color the stamens (straight pin shapes) of each Periwinkle flower.
  6. Tap another Smooch Accent Tip into Jelly and color the very center of the Periwinkle flowers.
  7. Place the leaf sprig stamp on the acrylic block, ink with Pea Pod and stamp in between the Periwinkle flower stamps as shown. Clean and remove stamp.
  8. Use the tape runner to adhere the stamped cardstock to the front of the folded color cardstock.
  9. Place the ruffle centered flower on the acrylic block, ink with Jelly and stamp onto the scrap of the white cardstock. Repeat this step two additional times, leaving enough space in between each image to add accent leaves. Clean and remove stamp.
  10. Place the smaller ‘v’ leaf stamp on the acrylic block, ink with Limon and stamp around the ruffle centered flowers to accent. Clean and remove stamp.
  11. Use the fine point scissors to cut out each Jelly flower and its attached Limon leaves.
  12. Place the ‘hello friend’ sentiment on the acrylic block, ink with Jelly and stamp in the center of the punched out oval. Clean and remove stamp.
  13. Re-ink the tip of the Limon Accent Tip and edge the oval by gently tapping and rubbing the tip to the outside of the oval.
  14. Trim the colored ribbon to about 3 inches, with the ends cut at an angle for a special touch.
  15. Using the foam squares, adhere each of the Jelly flowers to the center of the flowers on the card front. Slightly overlapping each Jelly flower creates a fun, bouquet look.
  16. Fold the ribbon in half, allowing the ends to separate and create an upside-down ‘v’ shape. Use the adhesive runner to secure the ribbon in this shape.
  17. Use another bit of the adhesive runner to secure the ribbon to the lower-right corner of the card front, as shown.
  18. Place a foam square on the back side of the oval sentiment and place on top of the secured ribbon.


TIPS

  • Paper trimmer is optional. Scissors may be used in place to cut the larger card pieces for this project.
  • ‘Edging' individual pieces of a project helps create dimension and really makes these pieces pop!
