There is a lot of fussy cutting to make this card so if you don't like fussy cutting it might not be the card to CASE.
Stamps= fabulous Florets, Nature Walk, Hello Doily, Weathered, En Francais, Elements of Style. Most of these are retired but I love them.
card stock= Naturals White, Whisper White, Sarah Sand, Vellum, Something Borrowed DSP.
Ink= sarah Sand, VersaMark, StazOn Black.
Extras= Pretty in Pink, Wisteria Wonder, Daffodil Delight.- Stampin' write markers. 5/8" Organza Ribbon. Sweetheart and Scalloped Tag Topper punches. Pearl Basic Jewels.
Glue= I used glue dots, Dimensional and Tombo multipurpose glue.
Method: Cut from Naturals White card stock a square card. I just cut a strip off the side of an A4 sheet at 5 and 7/8ths. Use the off cut to make the top layer of the tag 1 6/8" x 4". Punch the top using Scalloped Tag Topper. Then stamp this using En Francais and sponge edges.
From Sarah Sand cut a 5 1/2" square and sponge the edges with Sarah Sand ink. Cut another piece of SS
5 1/4"x 5 1/4. Tear this piece diagonally and rough up the other 2 sides with a blade or scissors. Cut a piece 2" x 4 1/4 and Scallop Tag Top the top edge and sponge the edges. cut a piece of White Organza ribbon 7" long and join the two tags.
Cut DSP 5 1/4. Glue the triangle of SS to the DSP. cut a piece 2'' x 4 1/2 for the tag.
Stamp Hello Doily onto Whisper White using Sarah sand and fussy cut. mount this on the card using dimensionals. then mount the tags also using Dimensional. Stamp the greeting onto Whisper white, punch out using the Sweetheart punch, sponge the edges and add the pearls. mount using Dimensionals.
Using Fabulous Florets stamp 9 large flowers, 9 small flowers and 9 leaves using VersaMark and white embossing powder. Heat emboss.
Colour the backs of the flowers with Pretty In Pink and the leaves with Certainly Cellery.
Now comes the fun part. All of the flowers and leaves need to be fussy cut and layered using glue dots the middle layer of the flowers only has 3 petals to show the underneath and the top layer is missing the very back petals. The bees were stamped on Whisper White and acetate and fussy cut removing the wings from the W.W. The wings from the acetate are cut keeping the center piece together so they are in one piece. They are then bent upwards and glued to the body of the bees which are coloured with Daffodil Delight.
The butterfly is stamped onto Whisper Whit once and on Vellum twice. Cut the body from the whisper white and the wings from the vellum using StazOn Black and colour the back of the vellum with Wisteria Wonder. now just assemble the card and you will have a beautiful card to give that special someone. I used glue dots for the bees and butterfly and dimensionals for the flowers.
Lots of instructions to follow but the end result is worth it. Happy Stampin'
