Create a 20.5 cm square card base, top folding, using 2 sheets of PMD’s raspberry card. Add a smaller panel of white card then a smaller panel of the raspberry card and emboss this using the Art Deco Fanfare A4 Embossing Folder by Creative Expressions (CE), then adhere to the card base.
Cut a 14cm piece of white card and a 13.5cm of raspberry card, adhere together then glue onto card base in a diamond formation.
Use the 3rd size oval die, by CE, to die cut a white oval then stamp the sentiment, by CE, offset to the right and adhere to your card in the centre of the diamond shape.
Use the 3rd and 4th oval die to die cut a frame in white card, do this 4 times and glue together to give dimension.
Make one more die cut, with the 2nd and 3rd size oval die, onto the raspberry card. Adhere the raspberry frame first then the white frame, as shown.
Using all but the smallest die from the Starflowers Die Set by John Next Door, die cut each individual die 4 times on raspberry card. Using the smallest die and white card die cut this 6 times to give you 3 flower centres. Shape flowers with a ball tool. Now glue the layers to create 3 individual flowers, ensure you have one full flower, one small flower and use the remainder for the middle flower. Make 3 centre pieces with the white card and adhere onto the flowers then a flat black gem to each centre. Adhere into place onto your card.
Die cut three of the Starflower Leaves Dies Set in white card. Cut five individual leaves and arrange onto the smallest flower, adhere with glue.
With the remaining leaves arrange and glue into place around the two larger flowers.
To complete add 3 of the smallest flat back gems as shown on the card.
Create a 15cm square card base, top folding, out of black card then one piece of black card 3cm x 13cm and another 2cm x 12 cm. Using the lime green card cut 2 pieces of card, one 13.5cm x 3.5cm and the other 12cm x 2cm.
Adhere the black card onto the respective green card then onto the card base.
Use an anti-static tool on the bottom right hand corner of the card and stamp the sentiment (name unknown), with a clear embossing ink pad, apply WOW Olive Regular Embossing Powder, remove the excess powder and heat set.
Using the die set ‘Arianna Blooms’ by Heartfelt Creations, die cut the flowers onto the green card.
Once cut discard the two largest petals, shape the remainder flowers with a ball tool and use either a Japanese Hole Punch or a pokey tool to make a small hole in the base/centre of each flower. Pinch each individual petal for dimension then, using a smoothie by CE or a blending tool (Ranger) brush the tips of each petal, lightly, with Ranger’s Black Soot Ink Pad.
Assemble each layer ensuring the centre remains clear. Take 3 or 4 green stamens, fold in half, snip off a little from the bottom then feed them through the centre of the flower, if there is too much stamen on the underneath of the flower snip more away then apply enough glue to secure the remaining stamens and adhere the flower to the top right of the card.
Using 3mm green flat back pearls by Hobby House add them to the card front as shown.
Cut 2 pieces of green card 10cm square, 2 more pieces 9.5cm square, and 2 pieces of black card 9.5cm square. Adhere the card pieces as green, black, and green, to make 2 combinations.
Stamp and emboss a flourish design onto one set of the above combinations then stamp and emboss the sentiment onto the remaining combination. Adhere to the inside of your card.
Use a small round corner punch to the bottom corner of your card to complete.
Cut a piece of purple card 29cm x 10cm, fold in half as a top fold and score well. Now open up the card and place the Crafts Too Cutting & Embossing Folder over one section of the card (it will look upside down) and run it through your die cutting machine. Once done remove the folder and flip that part of the card over, it will now be facing the correct way!
This type of folder has a lot of gorgeous embossed detail and does not require a lot more to it. Add pearls as shown above then use the oval shape to stamp a sentiment/verse onto it, adhere to the inside of the card and define the edge by either using a gold fine liner pen or a ‘peel off’
