PROJECT TUTORIAL:

Begin by burnishing the fold of the Poppy Parade card base with a Bone Folder.

Adhere the Granny Apple Green card stock layer to the card base with Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

Zip the Basic White layer through a Stampin’ Cut & Emboss Machine with the largest Stitched with Whimsy Die.

Use a Clear Block or Mini MISTI to stamp the 3 flowers (Poppy Parade Classic Ink) and 3 leaves (Granny Apple Green Classic Ink) (Artistically Inked Stamp Set) onto the Basic White layers. Watch my 1 Minute to WOW! Video demonstration of the Mini MISTI here.

Crop with a Stampin’ Cut & Emboss Machine (Standard or Mini) and the coordinating Artistic Dies.

Adhere the flowers and leaves to the card with Multipurpose Liquid Glue (middle flower and both double leaves) and Stampin’ Dimensionals (remaining 2 flowers and single leaf).

Use the Mini MISTI to stamp the sentiment (Artistically Inked Stamp Set) in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink onto the Basic White layer.

Crop with a Stampin’ Cut & Emboss Machine (Standard or Mini) and the Labels Aglow die.

Thread silver Simply Elegant Trim through the ends of the sentiment die-cut and around the Basic White layer, securing on the left with a bow.

Adhere as shown with Stampin’ Dimensionals.

POP OF PERSONALITY! Embellish the center of each flower with 3 silver Festive Pearls.

PERFECT POLISH! Adhere the 5 3/4 x 2 1/4 Designer Series Paper (DSP) to the Basic White Medium envelope flap with Multipurpose Liquid Glue. IMPORTANT: Add glue to the flap first, not the DSP. Center and line up the Basic Borders scalloped edge die, tape to secure (Post-It Tape) and crop with a Stampin’ Cut & Emboss Machine (Standard). Watch my Pretty Envelope Flap WOW! video for a quick demonstration here.
