Hi and welcome!
We finally had a significant snowfall yesterday here on Long Island. We usually have so much more snow so it was exciting to wake up this morning and see everything looking so beautiful.
My card today looks a little more tropical than the current situation.
Instructions: Card size is 7 x 5”. Score and fold 10 x 7” white cardstock at 5” on the long side to create card base. Cut Ornate Peacock Paper Collection sheet 1B to 6 7/8 x 4 7/8”, ink the edges with Archival Forget-Me-Not ink and adhere to the card front. Cut sheet 5A to 6 7/8 x 4 7/8”, ink the edges with Forget-Me-Not ink, stamp the ‘Happy Birthday to You’ sentiment from the Special Birthday Sentiments Cling Stamp set using Archival Vibrant Fuchsia ink and adhere to the inside of the card. Cut two tags from the paper collection using the smaller Tickets and Tags Die, ink the edges with Forget-Me-Not ink and adhere to two white cardstock tags cut using the larger tag die. Punch the holes in the tags, diecut the reinforcements for the holes using the same die set and color with Forget-Me-Not ink, adhere the reinforcements to the tags and add fuchsia satin cord. Trim a little off the bottom of the tags and adhere them to the right side of the card front as shown.
Create a 5 x 5” shadow box. Score a 7 x 11 1/2” piece of Deluxe Flower Shaping Paper on the short side at 1/2”, 1”, 6” and 6 1/2”. Score the long side at 1/2”, 1”, 6” and 6 1/2”. Trim the right top and bottom score lines off up to the first vertical score line, using scissors to cut tabs. (See sample on my blog.) Cut paper from the paper collection sheet 12B x1 4 7/8 x 4 7 /8”, x4 3/8 x 4 7/8” and ink the edges with Forget-Me-Not ink. Using removable tape, temporarily adhere the 4 7/8 x 4 7/8” designer paper to the front of the shadow box. Using the Cut Mat Create 2A die, cut the aperture in both the card front and the designer paper at the same time. Adhere the designer papers to the box using dries clear adhesive prior to assembling. Cut a 4 7/8 x 4 7/8” piece from the paper collection sheet 4A and adhere to the inside of the box. Finish folding at all score lines and adhere to form the shadow box. Adhere the shadow box to the left side of the card front using dries clear adhesive.
Stamp the fence from the Hollyhock Fence Cling Stamp set on white cardstock using VersaMark ink, cover with Ranger Super Fine Detail Embossing Powder, heat set using the Heat It Tool and diecut using the coordinating die. Diecut 4 more times from Deluxe Flower Shaping paper and adhere all the diecuts behind the stamped one to create a dimensional fence and adhere to the shadow box.
Stamp the pretty peacock, the flourish from Peacock and Posies Cling Stamp set and the flourish from the Ornate Peacock Cling Stamp set on white watercolor cardstock using VersaMark ink, cover with Ranger Silver Super Fine Detail Embossing Powder and heat set using the Heat It tool. Diecut using the coordinating die and color using Zig Clean Color Real Brush markers – Fl. Green, Yellow, Persian Green and Dark Pink. Diecut each once more from white cardstock and adhere behind the stamped images for stability. Lightly shape the images using the Deluxe Flower Shaping kit. Adhere the peacock to the fence and the flourishes to the shadow box as shown using dimensional dots, hot glue and dries clear adhesive.
Stamp the Clematis flowers on Deluxe Flower Shaping Paper using Vibrant Fuchsia ink. Color the fronts and the backs using the same ink, diecut using the coordinating dies and shape using the 3D Clematis Mold. Add additional shaping using the Deluxe Flower Shaping kit. Adhere two petals of the same size together to create each flower and create one large, two medium and one small flowers. Pierce the flower centers and add Bridal Bouquet stamens using hot glue. Stamp the Garden Lily leaves on Deluxe Flower Shaping Paper using English Ivy Archival ink, color the fronts and backs with the same color, diecut using the coordinating die, add additional ink to the edges and shape in the 3D Lily mold. Using a paint brush, add dries clear adhesive to the flowers and leaves and sprinkle with Rajni Chawla’s Crystal Clear glitter.
Adhere the flowers and leaves as pictured. Add a little extra sparkle by randomly sponging the card front and the inside with dries clear adhesive and sprinkle with Crystal Clear glitter.
