I started out by blending Black Soot Distress Oxide ink over the word “Love” from the “Love and Home” stencil. Then, I embossed it with clear embossing powder.
Next, I used the layered “Evening Primrose” stencil to fill in where the ‘O’ would be in love. To make sure I line up each layer of the flower correctly, I placed the leaves where I wanted them to be and lightly marked where the corner and sides were with a pencil (don’t forget to erase the marks later).
I blended Hyde Park Color Hive ink over the leaves. Then, I blended a little Everglades Color Hive ink over it to give some dimension. Next, I turned the stencil once and lined it up on the pencil marks. I blended Coral Keys Color Hive ink through the stencil and a little Tiptree Jam Color Hive ink.
Then, I turned the stencil to the other set of petals and did the same thing. I used the post-it note to make sure I didn’t get ink on the card panel.
To finish the flower, I turned the stencil to the flower center lining it up with the pencil marks and blended Mustard Seed Distress Oxide ink over the flower center. I trimmed down the panel to 3 1/4″ x 5″. Then, I layered it on a gold panel. To prepare the ultra white card base, I used the “tangled ropes” stencil from the box and blended Pumice Stone Distress Oxide over it.
To finish the card, I added foam tape to the top panel and adhered it to the card base. Then, I added Solar Flair Crown Gem Jewels to the center of the flower and a few scattered.
