Step-by-Step Instructions:

  1. Fold the Basic White Cardstock in half to create your base card.
  2. Using the large foliage image and Mossy Meadow ink, stamp in a circle on the right side of the 3-3/4” x 5” piece of Basic White cardstock.  Ink up the small leaf stamp using Mossy Meadow ink, stamp off on your scratch sheet, and stamp in between the larger stamps.  Repeat as desired.
  3. Ink up the small flower stamp and stamp several times using Blackberry Bliss ink.  Clean stamp and stamp flowers again using Berry Burst ink.
  4. Run the stamped cardstock through the Cut & Emboss Machine using the Distressed Tile folder.
  5. Cut 15” – 18” of the Natural Trim and wrap around the embossed White cardstock mat.  Tie into a bow on the left side and trim ends as needed.  Adhere the White cardstock to the Blackberry Bliss mat and then adhere to the card front.
  6. Stamp the border image using Berry Burst ink onto the 3” x 3” piece of Basic White cardstock.   Stamp the sentiment inside the border using Blackberry Bliss ink.
  7. Punch out the sentiment using the Hexagon Punch that comes in the Bundle and adhere to the center of the foliage using Stampin’ Dimensionals.
  8. To finish, add the Purple Fine Shimmer Gems and Brushed Brass Butterflies as desired onto the card front.

A Tip from Barb

There are so many little touches on this card that make it a favorite of mine. The Hexagon Punch makes quick work of the sentiment, but if you don’t have that punch, simply fussy cut out the sentiment with scissors. Easy Peasy!
