Instructions

BASE CARD

Cut a piece of dark pink card stock measuring 6 1/4" x 10", score it at 5", and fold. Round all 4 corners with a corner-rounder punch.

MAT LAYER

Cut/emboss pink card stock using the largest Lattice Rectangle die. Cut a piece of glossy white card stock measuring 4 1/4" x 5 1/2". Color this with alcohol inks using a felt applicator. I used Purple Twilight and Cranberry. Let it dry , then spritz it with gold glimmer mist and let the paper dry completely.

Once it is dry, stamp the stained glass image onto the colored paper using Versamark ink, and heat emboss with gold embossing powder. Cut/emboss this patterned paper using the largest deckled rectangle. Mount the deckled rectangle onto the pink latticed rectangle, and adhere this to the front of the card.

IMAGE

Stamp the image onto white paper and trim it generously. Color with COPIC markers. I used these colors:

  • Scroll: E50, E51
  • Shadow: W3
  • Lilies: RV21, RV23, Blossom SPICA pen
  • Leaves: G24; Candles: YR0000, RV21, Y17

Mount the trimmed image on the lower left corner of the mat using foam squares.

SENTIMENT

Stamp the sentiment on white card stock using dark pink ink. Punch out with a scalloped oval punch. Punch a wide oval from dark pink card stock. Mount the sentiment onto the dark pink oval. Mount the sentiment in the upper right corner of the mat using foam squares. Tie a double-loop bow, and glue under the sentiment.

Thanks for stopping by!
