Assembly & Trix:

*  Scallop the edge of the card base using the Scalloped Contour Dies.  ***Trix, align the scallop border first before cutting to ensure the scallops are evenly distributed along the edge of the card for visual balance. 

*  Stamp the sentiment using Memento Black ink on Basic White.

*  Stamp the flowers using Memento Black ink and colour with Polished Pink using sponge daubers. 

*  Emboss the Basic Black CS piece with the Textile Embossing Folder.

*  Adhere the Basic White sentiment piece to the Basic Black with Multipurpose Liquid Glue (glue).  Adhere the ribbon to the base of the Basic Black layer with glue and set aside to dry.    ***Trix, before attaching the sentiment plan the flower placement around the sentiment.

*  Adhere the Basic Black to the card base with Stampin' Dimensionals. 

*  Adhere the flowers to the Basic Black layer with glue.  ***Trix, if more than half of the flower hangs off the Basic Black layer it should be adhered to the card base with a dimensional so that it doesn't droop.


Enjoy and have a super day!

  4. Lesley, I really like your pretty, pretty card. And what a perfect bundle. For some reason I am intimidated by this shape of card. Hopefully you have inspired me to have a go at it.
