Instructions

Prepping the PiecesWindow

Use light orange paper cut to 12" x 6", score it at 4" and 8". Cut a window in the front panel using the middle sized Label 9 die.

Using the dark orange paper, cut and emboss a large scalloped oval, a tag, and a Label 9 frame. You can create the frame by placing the middle die inside the next largest die and run the set through the machine. Hint - I use plain tape to hold the dies in place.

Die Cuts

Also, cut a plain white oval to fit inside the scalloped oval.

Outside of Card

Glue the dark orange frame around the window on the front of the card.

Stamp a border across the bottom of the card using the small solid rose stamp, rotating it slightly for each image. The border is stamped on the front panel, all three inside panels, and the back of the left panel.

Stamp the "Mom" sentiment under the window on the front of the card.

Through the Window

Stamp the large solid rose image in light orange on the white oval, and the top half of the "cheery" message in dark orange under the rose. I used my Stamp-A-Ma-Jig to get the saying right where I wanted it. Mount the white oval on the dark orange scalloped oval. Adhere the image on the back of the left-most panel so that the rose will show through the window when the card is closed.

Cheery Day Two

Inside of Card

Create a mask by stamping the large rose image on a Post-It, and trimming it closely. Stamp the large rose in dark orange ink inside the card in the middle panel. Mask it, and stamp the leaf spray, and individual rose buds over and around the masked image using light orange ink.

Stamp the bottom half of the "cheery" image in dark orange on white paper, and cut it out. Mount it on top of the tag die cut, and mount it on the left-most panel.
