To start this adventure today with my New 4090J- Early May Bouquet Digital Stamp Set. Size the bouquet to approx.
5-1/2" +x 6-0" and place over the edge of the paper as shown. I always "mentally" divide each sheet into halves for cardmaking.
Print on Hammermill® White 100lb. Coverstock.
Color as desired. I chose to use Copic® Markers.
I used Washi® Tape down the side before coloring
so I would have a straight edge. Later realized it was not necessary. The list of Copic® Colors are listed above.
Cut the page in half and set the second image to the side for a future project.
Trim your colored image to 5" from the chopped edge of the image and about a 1/2" from the bottom of the vase- to fit a 5"x7" cardbase.
Fussy cut the main image. Using a ruler and X-acto® knife cut your surface line 1-3/4" from the bottom as shown.
On the 5"x7" cardbase align the image along the fold and trace litely around the image on the front flap.
Fussy cut the FRONT FLAP ONLY.
Cut just inside the line. I also used a small hole punch for the small cut-outs.
Using the 5.5"x5.5" Square Lattice Flower Burst®
Die from my stash and Hammermill® White 100lb. Coverstock cut your background running through
your Big Shot®.
Using EZ-Tear® Tape adhere the Square Lattice Flower Burst® Die to the front of the cardbase flap as shown. Be sure to align.
Trim off the extra along the fold.
Wrap a piece of Gold Baker's® Twine around the vase and tie a bow.
Using EZ-Tear® Tape, align and adhere the colored image to the front of the cardbase as shown.
Cut a 5"x7" rectangle of Paper Accents® - Splash (green) and adhere it the inside panel of the cardbase as shown.
OPTIONAL: Adhere a couple of matching scraps on
the backside of the cardbase with a name plaque.
I edged the name plaque with VersaMagic® - Aegaen Blue. I also adhered a partial fussy cut of
a smaller bouque.
Cut around the extension of the "F" slide the die of your choice under the "F" and run through the Big Shot. Edge with VersaMagic® - Aegaen Blue and adhere.
Add two (2) dots of Nuvo Crystal Drops® - Apple Green. Let Dry.
