Instructions

Using white cardstock cut your base box to 12" x 12". Using a bone folder bone folder on the 4" mark and the 8" ink and turn and repeat. Cut out in corner to create a cross.



Using your patterned cardstock, select 2 sheets the same and trim the selected sheets to 3 3/4" x 3 3/4". You will require 5 for the front and 5 for the inside. Adhere with designer dries clear adhesive. You will require 2 more mats, 1 for the top of your box and one for the inside top of the box.




Using your sentiment stamps, stamp the "happy birthday" and the "let's celebrate you" 2 times each on white cardstock using Memento Teal Zeal ink and die cut with the circle die from the Furry Tailed Frolic Die set. Using the matching eyelet circle die, die cut 4 circles from the leftover cardstock. Using 3d dots adhere the sentiments to the matching circles. Adhere the sentiment circles flat on opposite sides of the box, 2 on the inside and 2 on the outside. Using the "have a wonderful birthday" stamp, stamp 4 times on white cardstock using Memento Teal Zeal ink and trim down to 3 3/4" x 1". Adhere the 1" strips flat on opposite sides of the box 2 on the inside and 2 on the outside. The outside and insides will look the same. Trim the striped cardstock down to 3 3/4" x 3/4", you will need 4 strips, adhere flat on the plain sides on the inside and repeat on the outside.



Using white cardstock cut 5 3/4" x 5 3/4", using a bone folder, place a bone fold line at the 3/4" mark all the way around, you will be left with a square in the middle measuring 4 1/4" x 4 1/4". Trim each end in a little to make a flap to adhere together to create your box lid. Adhere in place with designer dries clear adhesive. Adhere a patterned mat to the top of the lid.



Repeat the above step with 5 1/2" x 5 1/2" to create the inner box. you will end up with a box 4" x 4". Adhere a patterned mat to the top of the lid.

Using your Botanic Window die, die cut 2 die cuts. Line up each on the top of the smaller box lid. Adhere along the straight edge and run both into the middle until they meat, fold and adhere in place.



Using your sentiment stamp, stamp the "Happy Birthday to you" twice with Memento Teal Zeal ink and fussy cut, leave about a 1/4" strip along the bottom to fold to make a stand.




Using your Bamboo Leaves ink, stamp the Patchwork Daisies 2 times each size and the Patchwork Daisies in the Border set 2 times. Color the leaves in the Archival Vivid Chartruese and the flowers in the Pearlescent Lavender and cut with coordinating dies. Adhere the smaller sprays to the front and back of the botanic windows.



Adhere the sentiment to the front applying glue to the bottom lip and then using a dot of glue at the top of each sentiment push together to make a join.

 

Using the smaller daisy sprays, trim down to make 2 smaller pieces adhere one on the top of each side.


When your inner box is completed it will look like this.


Using your paper collection, select the purple border strips, you will need 2 strips. Line up the border and adhere around the edge of the box lid, 1 strip will cover 3 sides, then trim of and adhere the last panel and trim. Line up the larger daisy die cut onto the top of the box lid. When happy with there placement, bend slightly so the flower hangs over the sides. Adhere in place with designer dries clear adhesive on the leave and let the flowers float free.

Your box is now complete, add lime green rhinestones to your flower centers. NOTE - I have left the centre box float free, you can adhere in place if you like.

Instructions




Cut your white card base 12" x 12", fold in half and use a bone folder for a cleaner line. Trim the front right-hand side down by 1 ½” so that the front flap is 4 ½ “. Cut your desired mats from your Oakberry Paper Collection to 5 ¾” x 5 ¾”, one front mat and one contrasting mat for the insert, trim of a ¼” strip from the right-hand side from the front mat. Adhere your front mat. Adhere you insert mat and then adhere you strip to the right hand inside so that it lines up with your front mat.


Using your Album tags and Accents Die, die cut one purple eyelet background mat using the same cardstock as your insert, and cut 1 white matching die cut for your sentiment. Stamp with your “hope your day is as special as you are” sentiment using Memento Espresso Truffle.  Adhere together using 3d dots.
Using your Oakberry Lane Blossoms stamp set, stamp your flowers using Memento Grape Jelly Ink and color with Brilliance Pearlescent Lavender, highlight the edges with the grape jelly ink, shape in your 3D Mold and add desired white wired stamens to the flower centers. Leave the wire attached and curl your wire. To curl wire wrap around a skewer or similar sized object and slide of to create the spiraled wire. I have used 3 flowers for the main flower and 2 flowers for the smaller flowers.

Using your Oakberry Lane Stamp set, stamp your leaves using Memento Espresso Truffle and color using Peeled Paint ink, die cut with coordinating die and highlight edges with Distress Aged Mahogany Ink.


Using your ornamental tags die set, cut the flourish tag and trim of the solid section so you are left with the flourish.


Assemble your card – Adhere your decorative sentiment mat flat on the front of your card so that it is hanging over the right-hand side. Line up the flourish and adhere to the insert on the outer edge on the matching floral strip so as it looks part of your sentiment mat. Adhere your flowers and leaves and arrange your curled wires. Tie a bow and place at the top of your sentiment. Decorate with stickles as desired.

Versacolor Ink – White
Distress
Peeled Paint Ink
Anti static Pad
Ranger Embossing Powder – White
White Cardstock
Diamond Stickles
White Button
Acetate



TIP:  Use an antistatic pad to wipe your vellum and cardstock first before stamping, it creates a static free environment so that only your stamped image is embossed.  When using a heat gun, don’t get too close to your cardstock or it will get a brown tinge. 

Using the Butterfly Kisses stamp set, stamp the butterfly on white cardstock using your White Versacolor Ink, then cover completely in white embossing powder, shake of the excess and heat with your heat gun.  Repeat with one on vellum. I have colored these images using Broken China.  Color the cardstock butterfly on the front and the vellum butterfly on the back. Cut with coordinating die. Cut a strip of acetate approximately 1cm wide and adhere to the back of the vellum butterfly up to the head, leaving the flourishes free. Do not bend the top of the acetate like you will with the flower.
Using your Buttons and Blooms stamp, stamp the medium size flower in teal zeal, morocco, lilac posies and buttercup, lightly shade with the matching color and die cut with coordinating die. Shape with your deluxe flower shaping kit. 
Using your leafy accents stamp, stamp your double and triple leaves using your peeled paint ink and color with same ink. Die cut with coordinating dies and shape in the 3D shaping mold.
Cut 4 strips of acetate approx. 1cm wide, you can cut the length when assembling the card. Bend the top of your acetate over about 1cm wot make a stand. Adhere 2 leaves, you may need to cut into singles and 1 flower to the front of each acetate strip and allow to dry. On the yellow flower adhere 1 white button.
Using your Patchwork Pockets stamp, stamp the pocket once each with bamboo leaves, lilac posies and buttercup, shade your pockets as pictured. Die cut with coordinating die. 
Using your Hand stitched Accents stamp, stamp your "Birthday for you" stamp in Teal Zeal, die cut with coordinating die. Trim this into 2 pieces, the for you section and the birthday section. Color the leaves with bamboo leaves. 
Cut 1 acetate strip 1cm and fold the top at the 1cm mark as you did with the flowers. This will be the ramp for your banner.
Using your Buttons and Blooms Paper Pad cut the background mat 6" x 6". Cut your white card base 12" x 6" and using a bone folder for a cleaner line fold in half.

Card Assembly


Adhere your front patterned mat. Adhere your vellum butterfly to the top left so as the top of the butterfly is coming out the top. Using your acetate ramp adhere to the right side of the card so it sits approx. 2 cm below the card top.  Adhere 3 flowers to the back of your yellow pocket (play around with the placement so it will sit on your card nicely, you may need to trim the bottom of your acetate strips so they are not hanging out. Adhere your birthday flourish to the back of the pocket so it sits as pictured. Line up your yellow pocket up on your card front for measurement purposes only do not glue in place and work out where your banner will sit best and adhere it over your ramp so it is floating in the air. Using 3d dots adhere your first pink pocket remembering that this is below the yellow level and the flowers will need room.  Using 3d adhesive now adhere your yellow pocket over the top of the pink pocket. Adhere your center flower to the back of the green pocket so that it fills your bunch and using 3d dots adhere your last pocket. Trim the top flourish of your cardstock butterfly and adhere with glue only in the center of your butterfly so you can bend up his wings. Using glue only on the right side adhere you’re for your mat and bend it up like a tag. Decorate with stickles as desired.
