  • Stamp your image and colour it in.

  • Distress and ink the edges. I used a Tim Holtz Paper Distresser but you can also rough the edges with your finger nails.

  • Mat onto a scrap piece of dark brown paper. Again distress the edges.
  • Mat onto another piece of scrap paper, this time a green that will coordinate with the Willow paper we are using later. Leave room below the image for your sentiment. Tear the bottom and distress all the edges. I used a green sheet of Basic Grey paper from the Lime Rickey 6x6 pad.,  I also used this for one of the circles inside the card. Add a sentiment; this can be a rub-on, sticker or even a sentiment you printed on your paper.

 

  • Make a card measuring 16.5cm x 15cm by folding a 16.5 x 30cm piece of AC cardstock on the longest side.
  • Cut a piece measuring 16cm x 14.5cm from your sheet of Fancy Pants Flutter Butter Willow paper . Lightly ink the edges with distress ink and stick onto your card. Draw a decorative border with a white pen around the brown outside edge (see main pictures for guidance).
  • Add two strips of K & Company Adhesive borders around the middle of the card.
  • Glue the centrepiece you created earlier onto the centre of the card. Top the visible adhesive border flower centres with golden rhinestones.

 

  • Add a row of pearls to the top of the image and a few K&Co rub-on butterflies. These are from the Cut 'n Paste range.

  • Join two Petaloo flowers centred with a glazed brad and top with a lace bow. Add to one corner of the card.

 

The front of your card is now finished. Now for the inside.

 

 

  • Cut two pieces from the Bo Bunny Flutter Butter Willow into size 15.5cm x 13.5cm. Ink edges with brown distress ink.
  • Mat onto slightly larger pieces of pink cardstock. Ink edges with brown distress ink
  • Cut two scalloped circles using Nestabilities dies - I used the same light green Basic Grey paper I used on the front of the card, plus a scrap piece of Basic Grey blue paper. Emboss them and ink lightly with brown distress ink to show all the embossed edges. Stick onto one of the pieces you just created. Add a Petaloo flower with a glazed/epoxy brad.
  • Glue both pieces to the inside of your card.
  • Add a sentiment.
