Step by Step Instructions
1 Find a small stamp to fit into the earring tag charm, the small flower in the create a swirl set is an ideal size. Stamp 3 flowers onto card using the perfect medium ink pad and emboss with the lapis pearl lustre.
2 Spritz the cosmic shimmer watercolour with water and leave for 5-10mins to activate it. Paint the petals using the lava red and allow to dry. Cut the flowers out and gently ease the petals backwards as the lacquer will curve the flower upwards slightly.
3 Place a small amount of the crystal lacquer into the charm well and then place the cut flower on top. Then apply more lacquer over the flower making sure not to overfill the charm.
4 The lacquer will appear cloudy but will dry clear. Allow setting time and do not be tempted to poke it before it is dry as it will mark.
5 Take a piece of A4 thick white card and trim it in half. Place the frame die on one of the A5 pieces, slightly lower than the centre and cut the shape out. Leave the other frames inside the die when cutting out the frame so you get the inner frame cut at the same time.
6 From the top edge of the card, score down the box 1 and then box 2 channels on the Eazi score board. If you are not using the board score at 17mm and then 6mm to achieve the same measurements.
7 Crease and fold the score lines up, this will give you some depth to make the match card style card. Place the plain piece of A5 card under the tab that has just been made.
8 Then emboss across the bottom edge to form the ledge where the card will set inside creating the match card style.
9 Crease the tab upwards ready for inking in the next stage.
10 Chose the colours you wish for the project. Here Victorian velvet ink has been used on the solid back panel and spun sugar for the frame front panel. Then for the cut frame Victorian velvet and vintage photo have been used. Also colour the backs to and allow the card to dry.
11 Stamp a swirl design using the darker Victorian velvet ink to give a tone effect to the piece.
12 Apply double sided tape to the inside of the tab and attach the front frame panel to the card (the tab will be on the outside of the back of the card). Place the card in position before sticking it down to ensure you have the card in the correct place.
13 Cut and stick a piece of card to the back of the frame and then optional – place a smaller piece of matching card with rounded corners to add depth. Apply a chain to one of the charms and earring findings to the other 2 charms. Place the necklace over the frame hooks so it hangs nicely in the frame. Punch 2 holes for the earrings to be placed through
Stick the frame inside the card using 2 foams pads so it can be removed easily. Make sure it sits behind the frame aperture when sticking in place. Trim a small amount away from the bottom of the frame edge and punch to holes through the tab and back of the card. Having the front edge shorter will ensure it can be opened freely. Attach a ribbon through the holes and place a rose to finish the project.
