Assembly & Trix:
* Stamp the sentiment and die cut using the Tasteful Label from the scrap piece of Basic White cardstock.
* Using the Stamparatus™ stamp the Delicate Dahlia three times using the above colours, and add more ink with the sponge daubers. ***Trix, move the CS around on the Stamparatus™ to align the flowers in a grouping of three while keeping the dahlia in place, end with the Fresh Freesia flower on the bottom and keep the card in place.
* Lay the label on top of the dahlias, and stamp again using Fresh Freesia. ***Trix, now the label is perfectly aligned with the dahlia and when raised on Stampin' Dimensionals will add depth to the card.
* Emboss the stamped layer with the Tasteful Texture embossing folder.
* Adhere the twine to the back of the label using Stampin' Seal then adhere to the stamped layer using dimensionals.
* Adhere the two strips of Be Dazzling paper to the stamped layer with Multipurpose Liquid Glue (glue) ***Trix, I used glue and set it aside to dry for a minute, the glimmer accent on this paper requires a strong adhesive. Stampin' Seal Plus and Tear & Tape Adhesive will also probably work but I didn't have them with me at the time.
* Adhere the Kraft paper layer to the stamped layer with glue and then adhere the entire layer to the card base with glue.
I hope this card has inspired you to shop and earn free Sale a-bration products to add to your collection!
Enjoy and have a super day!
