The first thing that we will do is prepare our paper. We need an A2 base
in white cardstock. So, to make the base cut an 8-1/2″ x 11″ piece of
cardstock in the middle at the 5-1/2″ mark on the long side. Then take
one of those pieces and place on a paper scoring board and score in the
middle on the long edge at 4-1/4″. Now, you have a base!
For the other cuts you’ll need:
- White Cardstock – 12″ x 12″
- White Cardstock – 12″ x 5″
- White Cardstock cut from a circle die cut at 1-3/4″
Lay the 12″ x 5 ” paper horizontally on the Scor-Pal and score at 3″, 6″, and 9″. Fold in accordion style. Lay the quad fold down so that the side that touches the table has a fold on the left side.
Lightly draw a line from the top right slanting left on the panel that’s touching the table, on the side that’s facing you. Stamp the Mini Leaf in bamboo leaves along the line. Stamp the Mini Violet in purple and pink (clean stamp between colors) along the line as well and under the line. Stamp the Mini Leaves again in bamboo leaves, rotating the stems toward the flowers on the bottom. Stamp again in pear tart ink at the top and bottom, rotating leaf stems toward the flowers. Stamp the Mini Grass Seeds in pear tart, rotating the stems toward the flowers on the top and bottom.
Now, looking at where you did the stamping, draw a faint line on the front side of the fold that’s on top of the stamping you just did (see photo below) from the left side sloping toward the right side. Stamp the same as above.
Continue to do this zig zag on alternate sides of the card, stamping the same. You can check out the photo below – stamping is only on one side of the paper.
Fussy cut the first stamping you did, flip the paper and continue, flip the paper and continue, and flip the paper again and finish cutting.
Emboss the 5-1/4″ x 4″ paper with your favorite embossing folder.
On the card base, measure 1/4″ from all the edges. Hold a ruler on your marks and use the VersaMark marker to color in 1/4″ all the way around the card edge. Sprinkle with embossing powder and melt with a heat tool. On a 1-3/4″ circle die cut lay a 3/4″ circle die in the center and trace with a colored pencil. Stamp the Mini Grass Seed Heads in VersaMark and Using the StampRight Placement Line stamp along the colored pencil line. Stamp the Butterfly in the center with VersaMark. Sprinkle on embossing powder and melt with the heat tool. Go back and stamp the Mini Grass Seed Heads in split pea ink the same way you stamped it in VersaMark. Fussy cut around the outside edge.
Using the Nuvo Drops make beads around the colored pencil line. Set aside to dry. Adhere 3D tape to the backside of the circle. Stick to the lower part of the quad fold once it’s dry.
Glue the quad fold to the embossed panel. Cut a long piece of ribbon and adhere to the backside of the quad fold/embossed panel with tape, placing it where you can tie the bow over the embossed medallion. Glue the embossed panel/ quad fold to the embossed card base. Tie the ribbon on the front.
For the envelope, stamp the set in the colors used above in each corner of the front of the envelope. Stamp the butterflies in espresso truffle three times on the front.
