Cut a piece of green card stock measuring 7" x 10", score at 5" and fold. Use the corner rounder punch to round the two outer corners.
Cut a mat of blue card stock measuring 4" x 5 1/2" and mount at the top center of the card front. Cut a mat of designer paper measuring 3 3/4" x 5" and mount on the blue mat.
Stamp the sentiment in green ink below the mat layer.
Cut a label 1 die cut from vanilla card stock, and stamp the flower image in black ink on the die cut. Use a watercolor brush to color the flowers and leaves using ink from ink pads. Use a needle and embroidery floss, attach the buttons to the image, fixing the floss on the back with tape. Wrap a piece of orange raffia around the bottom of the die cut and tie a knot.
Cut/emboss a label 1 die cut one size larger than the image die cut using green card stock. Attach it to the card front using foam squares. Add the image panel onto the green die cut using foam squares.
Thanks for stopping by, and again I wish you the very best in the coming new year!
