INSTRUCTIONS:

  1. Stick the black card into your card front.
  2. Using C75 005 with the black pattern facing you, chalk the edges and stick down onto the black card.
  3. Using C75 004 facing you portrait, gently fold the card in ½ (but don’t crease) and at this ½ way point on the right hand side, tear the card to the middle of the paper. Use your wooden skewer roll these torn edges at a 45-degree angle away from each other, chalk the edges and stick down on the black pattern paper.
  4. Using C75 003 facing you portrait, as above, lightly ink up the Penelope Dee crackle background texture stamp with the Tumbled Glass distress ink and randomly press the stamp onto the paper with your fingers, gently fold the card in ½ (but don’t crease) at this ½ way point on the right hand side, tear the card to the middle of the paper. Use your wooden skewer to roll these torn edges at a 45-degree angle away from each other, chalk the edges and stick down on the words pattern paper.
  5. Using the Memory Box Olive Leaf Die and white card, cut the olive leaf.
  6. Using handmade flowers and your glue gun stick down the main flower in-between where the two rolled back pieces meet, cut the blue paper flower in half and stick on each side of the outer rolled back edges. Snip pieces off from the olive lead die cut and slip in-between the flowers, add the additional little flowers, snip the stamens in half and slip in-between the flowers.
  7. Slip the ½ dolly in the middle under the outside bottom fold and the black and white flower in the middle under the middle fold, add a snipped off piece of olive leaf and ½ blue stamen.
  8. Add the sentiment and the FabScraps circular words sentiment, stick down the blue ribbon where the folded back areas meet, stick the lace flower on top to cover the crease marks.
  9. Finish off with diamante and randomly scattering the mini pearls around the card.
  10. Cut the leftover pieces cut down to 15cmx15cm, 10cmx15cm, 10cmx10cm and 5cmx5cm pieces and place into your scrap paper storage box for later use to make greeting cards or using on your layouts. Throw away the remaining small bits and pieces.
