Step by Step Instructions
1 Place the 3rd largest grand labels 4 die onto the piece of white card and add the largest labels 4 die to the top right hand corner of the card. Secure the dies in place with some low tac tape making sure the tape is placed in the areas that won`t be used.
2 Place the piece through the Grand Calibur machine and then emboss the piece using the base plate, the die and card, followed by the tan mat and then the pink embossing board.
3 Place the cut shape at an angle and score on lines no.5 (DL) & no.6 (A5 Half Fold) of the eazi score board. Then move the last line over to the no.4 (A4 Gate) point & repeat the 2 score lines 5 & 6. Repeat this process until all the 2 lines are complete in one direction.
4 Turn the card to start making the score lines form a diamond shape. Repeat the same process as in the steps before. Alternately use the Creative Expressions lattice embossing folder, this will achieve a more woven look to the trellis & be much quicker.
5 Here is the completed worked panel.
6 Distress the lattice effect card using the cut`n`dry foam and pumice stone distress ink pad. Add ink to the embossed lines to enhance them.
7 Cut the green wire off the paper flowers and wrap the wire around a pokey tool to create the sweet pea tendrils.
8 For added effect use the fine point of the tool to allow the tendrils to get smaller as they are worked down the tip.
9 Stamp the swirl and then the sweet pea stamps in the opposite corner using the perfect medium ink pad and the clear embossing powder.
10 Shake the mica in the chalk mist to mix the 2 elements together. Then spritz the pink chalk onto the card. Blot the colours to achieve the required look.
11 Repeat with the other 2 colours to build the card. Pat each colour dry with a piece of kitchen roll after applying each colour.
12 Dry the card before stamping the sweet pea image using the archival ink pad. Stamp the bouquet & the corner bunch of sweet peas.
13 Use the shabby shutters distress ink & cut`n`dry foam to colour the leaves.
14 Then if you want to add more depth to the flowers spritz some more colour over the petals and dab with a kitchen towel to add texture to the piece.
15 Use the shabby shutters distress ink & cut`n`dry foam to colour the leaves.
16 Then if you want to add more depth to the flowers spritz some more colour over the petals and dab with a kitchen towel to add texture to the piece.
17 Cut the bouquet out and also decoupage the some more of the petals if you want a 3d effect to the piece. Cut the corner sweet pea piece out as well.
18 Use the green drawing inks to colour the stems of the sweet peas.
19 Trace around the aperture of the trellis piece onto a white piece of card. This will act as a guide when stamping the card.
20 Use the tendril stamp along with the peeled paint distress ink to create a panel in the aperture space.
21 Stamp the sentiment onto a piece of white card and distress using the peeled paint ink pad. Run the edge of the scissors across the edge of the card to achieve a rough & distressed look.
22 Mat the chalk backing paper onto a white and then lime piece of card. Attach the worked tendril panel to the back of the trellis labels 4 piece and then add this to the backing paper using foam pads for added dimension.
23 Attach the sweet pea corner to the top left corner of the card and then add the bouquet to trellis. Place a bow around the stems. Stamp & colour in 2 pea pods to embellish & finish the project.
24 Here the `grand labels 4` die has been given a trellis effect using the Eazi Score board.
