Instructions

BASE CARD

Using the 6" Grand Scalloped Square die, cut/emboss 2 squares of dark turquoise textured card stock. On one of the squares, score one edge about 1/2" in. Fold along the score line, then adhere the folded edge to the back of the other square. This forms the base card.

MAT

Use the next smalled Grand Scalloped Square die to cut/emboss a piece of patterned paper. Tie a double-loop bow on a strip of ribbon, and mount the ribbon and bow onto right side of the mat layer.

CROSS

Cut/emboss the cross die cut from the smooth turquoise paper. Stamp the cross image twice on white card stock in black ink. Color one cross completely using COPIC markers. I used these colors:

  • Cross: BG11, BG13
  • Flowers: Y13, Y17
  • Leaves: G14

Color the three main flowers on the other cross using the same shades. Cut the cross and flowers out, trimming closely. Spritz the cross and flowers with glimmer mist, and let them dry completely. Glue the shaded cross to the die cut, and mount the cross to the front of the card using 3-D foam squares. Shape the three individual flowers with the blossom tool kit, then glue to the cross on the matching flower images. Finish with a drop of Cantaloupe liquid pearls in the center of each flower.

Thanks for stopping by!
