Instructions: Card size is 7 3/4 x 6 1/4”. Cut white cardstock 7 3/4 x 7”, score and fold at 3/4” on the short side. Cut a second piece of white cardstock 7 3/4 x 6 1/4”, adhere the two pieces together to create a hinged tent fold card base. Cut orange cardstock 7 1/2 x 6” and cut black cardstock 7 1/4 x 5 3/4”. Adhere together using dries clear adhesive and adhere to card base using the corrugated cardboard in between for dimension. Cut white cardstock 6 7/8 x 5 3/8”, dry emboss using any embossing folder and adhere to card base using dries clear adhesive.
Diecut the frame from orange cardstock using the two largest dies from the Hand-stitched Accents Die and, using dimensional tape, adhere to the left side of the card as shown. Using black cardstock, diecut the small frame from the Eyelet Lace Frames Die, spray with Sparkle Sheer Shimmer Spritz, let dry and adhere to card as shown. Stamp the sentiment on orange cardstock using VersaMark, sprinkle with black embossing powder and heat set using the Heat It Tool. Diecut using the smallest die from the Eyelet Lace Frames Die, ink the edges with Black Soot ink and adhere to the card base using dimensional dots.
Stamp the blooms and the buttons from the Buttons and Blooms Cling Stamp Seton orange cardstock using VersaMark, sprinkle with black embossing powder and heat set using the Heat It Tool. Diecut using the coordinating die and shape the flowers using the Groove Golf Tool Set and the Deluxe Flower Shaping Kit. Spray the flowers and buttons with Sparkle Sheer Shimmer Spritz, let dry and then adhere two petals of the same size together with dries clear adhesive to create each flower. Adhere the buttons in the centers using small dimensional dots. Diecut the Arianna Lace flourishes from black cardstock, spray with Sparkle Sheer Shimmer Spritz and let dry.
