How to Make this Card:

  • Carol started this card by spraying Pixie Spray (a temporary adhesive to help hold intricate stencils down) to the back of the ‘4137 – Tree Branch Stencil‘.
  • Next, she placed the stencil over an A2 sized piece of white cardstock.
  • Using small ink blending brushes, Carol add Mist and Clover inks from ‘Color Fuse Set #10‘ through the stencil (Color Fuse set #10).

  • She then removed the stencil and die cut the panel with the largest ‘N5176 – Nested Deckle Rectangle Dies’ (Nested Deckle Rectangle die).
  • Use liquid glue to adhere the die cut panel to an A2 white card base.
  • Die cut the ‘5402-02D – Gentian and Stems Die and the ‘5401-04D – Large Garden Pots Die from white cardstock.
  • Choose one flower pot and save the others for another project.
  • Use ink blending brushes to color the stems with Clover and Basil inks from ‘Color Fuse Set #10‘ (Color Fuse #10).
  • Color the flower layers with Rose and Blush inks from ‘Color Fuse Set #5‘ (Color Fuse #5).
  • Color the flower pot with Beachside and Whisper inks from ‘Color Fuse Set #9‘ (Color Fuse #9). TIP: Ink on Beachside ink first. Then place a strip of removable tape along the top portion of the pot to add a shadow layer with the darker Whisper ink. Like this:

  • After adhering the ‘5402-02D – Gentian and Stem Flowers‘( Gentian flower layers ) with glue, arrange the stems and glue them to the back of the flower pot.
  • Next stamp a sentiment (Carol chose one from the ‘3455 – Country Blooms Stamp Set‘ (Country Blooms set) in black ink. She trimmed it first with her paper trimmer, then used scissors to add more detail by trimming above and below a portion, as shown in the photos.
  • Next, adhere the flower pot to a piece of vellum cut with the third smallest die from ‘5176D – Nested Deckle Rectangle Dies‘ ( Nested Deckle Rectangle die ) with small dots of glue. TIP: Just use small dots of glue so the vellum doesn’t buckle.
  • Now add foam tape to the back of the vellum, behind the die cut flower pot and flowers. Like this:
