 Morning crafters....

I was delighted when Papermill Direct contacted me asking if I would make a card for their blog.  I love their card stock, it really is excellent quality, naturally I said I would

I made 3 cards, with instructions, yesterday's card was one of them as is today's card

 Create a 15cm square card base, top folding, out of black card then one piece of  black card 3cm x 13cm and another 2cm x 12 cm.  Using the lime green card cut 2 pieces of card, one 13.5cm x 3.5cm and the other 12cm x 2cm

Adhere the black card onto the respective green card then onto the card base

Use an anti-static tool on the bottom right hand corner of the card and stamp the sentiment (name unknown), with a clear embossing ink pad, apply WOW Olive Regular Embossing Powder, remove the excess powder and heat set

Using the die set ‘Arianna Blooms’ by Heartfelt Creations, die cut the flowers onto the green card

Once cut discard the two largest petals, shape the remainder flowers with a ball tool      and use either a Japanese Hole Punch or a pokey tool to make a small hole in the base/centre of each flower.  Pinch each individual petal for dimension then, using a smoothie by CE or a blending tool (Ranger) brush the tips of each petal, lightly, with  Ranger’s Black Soot Ink Pad

Assemble each layer ensuring the centre remains clear.  Take 3 or 4 green stamens, fold in half, snip off a little from the bottom then feed them through the centre of the flower, if there is too much stamen on the underneath of the flower snip more away then apply enough glue to secure the remaining stamens and adhere the flower to the top right of the card

Using 3mm green flat back pearls by Hobby House add them to the card front as shown

Cut 2 pieces of green card 10cm square, 2 more pieces 9.5cm square, and 2 pieces of black card 9.5cm square.  Adhere the card pieces as green, black, and green, to make  2 combinations

Stamp and emboss a flourish design onto one set of the above combinations then stamp and emboss the sentiment onto the remaining combination.  Adhere to the inside of your card

Use a small round corner punch to the bottom corner of your card to complete

Until tomorrow...
