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 – Teal at 5-1/4″ by 4″
  • Mixed Media Paper – 5″ by 3-3/4″
  • Mixed Media – Small Scrap

Stamp the windowbox on a piece of scrap paper and cut it out. Stamp the sentiment in the center in teal ink. Place the windowbox above the sentiment  and trace it.

Stamp the Tiny Flower in teal in around the tracing. After cleaning stamp the flower again in evergreen bough. Stamp the Tiny Flower Group in purple ink. Stamp the Tiny Leaf in peeled paint ink, rotating the stem toward the flowers. Stamp the leaf again in bundled sage. Stamp the Tiny spring in brown, rotating the stems toward the flowers.

Trace the windowbox again on a scrap of mixed media paper. Stamp three of the Tiny Flowers across the front. Stamp the Tiny Flower Group in purple and the Tiny Leaf in the two colors of green. Create masks for the items you stamped and apply.

Ink up the windowbox in brown ink and stamp over the tracing. Remove the masks using the tweezers. Erase the tracing. Cut out the windowbox.

Spray a bit of water in the lid of the set card. Dip the brush in the water and brush the stamping with water, taping lightly here and there. Let it dry.

Add 3D tape to the back of the windowbox and stick it to the card where the windowbox is traced out. Erase any lines.

Rub Micro Glaze all over all the stamping to seal it in and keep the colors from running if they are introduced to water in the future.

For the envelope stamp all the stamps in the inks as above on the left corner of the front of the envelope.
