Good morning everyone and welcome! I'm here this morning sharing a card I have made for Heartfelt Creations to debut the Slim Decorative Rectangle Dies. You can find my card in the Heartfelt Creations Gallery with a listing of the products used and the instructions.
My card is a slimline easel card with a finished size of 4" X 8 1/2". Cut a piece of cardstock 8" X 8 1/2" and score at 2" and 4". Using the shadow piece for the Slim Elegant Rectangle Die cut a piece of white card stock and then using same die piece cut a piece of Sheet #3A of the paper collection and glue together. Now glue this piece to the 2" section. It will lie flat when folded and can also stand up on it's own. Cover the inside of the card with another piece of Sheet #3A and then set aside.
Cut the decorative outer section of the die using white cardstock and glue down onto the shadow piece. This makes an elegant frame for the flowers we are going to make.
Cut one of the center pieces to sit on the inside of the card that will hold a smaller piece with the sentiment. I cut it out of white cardstock and covered it with a piece of Sheet #6A then edged it with Rosebud ink. Adhere to the card using dimensional tape. Cut a smaller die cut to hold the sentiment out of white cardstock. Edge this piece with Rosebud and then stamp the sentiment with Rosebud. Glue to the larger piece.
Now let's work on the flowers. Stamp the flowers using Sap Green and then color with Sap Green in the center and Rosebud on the rest. Cut out with coordinating die. Stamp the leaves with leaf green and color with leaf green and then cut out with coordinating die. Edge in Leaf Green and Olive inks to highlight the leaves. Place leaves and flower petals on the mold and spritz with water then run through the die cut machine. Turn out to dry.
Once dry poke a hole in the center of the flowers and add the stamen. Attach with hot glue and also I used some hot glue to help with the shaping of the flowers. Decide on the placement of the flowers and leaves and glue down. When dry the card is ready to go.
