Other products used

Bone folder, heat gun, antistatic pad, vellum for stamping and die cutting, White Linen Card, Versacolor white Pigment Ink, White Embossing Powder, Zig markers – Evergreen, Wheat, Pure Orange, Pure Brown, Twine.  

I like to do all my die cutting, shaping and coloring first.  Die cut your Eyelet Oval die with the center also cut out on white cardstock. TIP:  Use an antistatic pad to wipe your vellum first before stamping, it creates a static free environment so that only your stamped image is embossed. Using the Blossoming Coneflower and Butterfly Kisses Stamp sets stamp your images using your White Versacolor Ink, then cover completely in white embossing powder, shake of the excess and heat with your heat gun, don’t get too close to your vellum or it will get a brown tinge. I have colored the Coneflower border using Zig markers. When coloring on vellum use a permanent marker, I like to color on the back of the image for a neater effect. I have used the Evergreen for the leaves and stems, the Wheat and Pure Orange for the flowers and the Pure Brown for the flower centers.
Cut your card base using the white cardstock 12 ¼” x 6 1/8”. Fold your card in half, I like to run a bone folder over the spine of the card to give it a clean finish. Trim the selected cardstock from the Backyard Blossoms Paper Collection 6” x 6”. Using the selected quote from the Heartfelt Love Paper Collection, note you will be using your Eyelet Oval & Basics Die, this swill cut slightly into the image below and will slightly miss at the top, so take care when cutting out the image.
Now you have all your elements done, you can complete your card. Adhere your patterned background mat to your card front.  Adhere your Eyelet Oval die cut slightly to the right of your card front, adhere the quote lined up in the center of the die cut (if it slightly missed the top, this is where you will adhere your twine bow).  Adhere the flower border as pictured, I have placed the glue on the stems and at the base of the flower, this leaves the flower buds raised slightly.  I have trimmed of the flourish pieces of the butterflies. Adhere the butterflies with adhesive only down the center of the butterflies so the wings can be folded up. Using the off cut flourishes adhere as desired or as pictured. Tie a small twine bow and adhere in the top center of your oval die cut.
Happy Crafting
