Step-by-Step Instructions:

  3. Adhere the 4” x 5-1/4” piece of Bright & Beautiful Paper onto the card front.
  4. Using the 3-1/2” x 4-3/4” piece of Basic White Cardstock, run through the Cut & Emboss Machine using the Polka Dot Basics 3D   Embossing Folder.
  5. Using the 1” x 3-1/2” strip of Basic White cardstock, stamp the sentiment on the right side using Berry Burst ink.  Adhere the White cardstock to the 1-1/8” strip of Shaded Spruce cardstock and adhere to the embossed White Cardstock from Step #4.

  7. Using the 2-1/2” x 4” piece of Basic White cardstock, stamp the floral image using Shaded Spruce ink. 
  8. Ink up the Bold flower images using Bubble Bath ink and before stamping, take a Q-Tip and apply a bit of Berry Burst ink into the bottom of each flower. (Tip:  swirl the Q-Tip into the ink pad and then use this ink to add color to the stamp.)
  9. Huff on the stamp and stamp onto the outline floral image.   Use another Q-Tip and apply Shaded Spruce ink onto the outline leaves as desired.
  10. Use the Paper Snips Scissors to cut out the flower and adhere to the card by using adhesive where it will be attached to the sentiment strip and Stampin’ Dimensionals for the top part of the image.
