Instructions

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:

  • Cardstock – White
  • Cardstock – Green
  • Envelope – White

Mount the boot stamps on an acrylic block. Ink up and stamp on masking paper. Cut out the mask and set aside.

Ink the boots in desert sand ink and stamp on the white panel with enough room for the roses at the top of the boots and a sentiment below the boots.

Apply the masks to the boots. Stamp the Mini Leaves in green ink coming out of the boots at the top and sides, about 3 leaves each. Stamp the Tiny Flower in pink above the boots, 3 in each boot. Clean the stamp and stamp it again in purple. Stamp the Mini Leaf again to fill out the bouquet. Stamp the Mini Sprig in brown ink.

Remove the masks. Save these with the stamp set for use later.

Color the boots with the colored pencils listed above. Create a shadow for the boots.

Brush on blue ink at the top of the card and brown ink at the bottom. Mount the sentiment and stamp below the boots in brown ink. Highlight the boots with the white gel pen.

Glue the stamped panel to the green background and then glue that to the card base.

For the envelope, stamp “happy” three times, leaving room for the to and from address and stamp.
