Step by Step Instructions

1 Take an 8”X 8” card blank and trim some white pearl card to 7.5” square.

1

2 Swipe the anti static bag across the card before inking the corner lily stamp. Here the black archival ink pad has been used. Have the clear embossing powder open and ready to place over the ink before it dries.

2

Once the image is stamped place the clear embossing powder straight over the black ink.

3

Repeat the process in the opposite bottom corner & heat set the embossing powder. This will add as a resist when using the Cosmic Shimmer drawing inks later on.

4

 5 Stamp & emboss 4 more corners of the lily stamp on some off cuts of card, these will be decoupaged later. Secure the Spellbinder classic frame in place before running through the die cutting machine.

5

Keep the cut frame for another project and the inner rectangle will be used to make a feature of the cross stamp.

6

Stamp the `Easter Greeting` sentiment from the cross stamp set & mat the sentiment onto some green card stock. Now cut out 2 sets of 3 flower heads and 2 sets of just 2 flower heads. More of the image can be cut out but it is easier to leave the foliage on the flat card stock.

7

8 Place the stamped piece on the non stick craft mat. Take the Cosmic Shimmer drawing ink & shake the green and pearl ink so it is ready to use. The pearl ink will hardly show when wet on the pearl card but once dry it will give a lovely shimmer feel to the flower.  Build layers of green ink to add shading to the piece.

8

9 Also colour the cut out flower heads with the pearl ink. Stamp the cross image onto the rectangle panel using the archival ink pad & emboss with the clear embossing powder. Place the coloured piece onto the base card using glue or double sided tape & add the cross panel in the centre of the frame using foam pads for dimension.

9

10 Use 3d glue to add the 3 flower head lilies to the corners of the frame & add the 2 flower lilies to the corner spray of flowers. This will add dimension to the piece. Add small dots of orange peel distress stickles to the centre of the flowers & allow to dry.

10

11 Place a length of crinkled green ribbon around the spine of the card and finish with a bow in the top corner.

11

12  Here is a close up of the dimension created on the card. The decoupaged flowers really make the piece stand out but without the need to cut all the leaves out.  Change the sentiment for whatever occasion it is used for.
