Heartfelt Creations Products and Products Sold On Our Website:

Copic Makers: Holiday Blue BG05, Blue green BG09, Moss YG67, Golden Yellow Y17. Spellbinders: S4-356 Decorative Elements, S5-030 Fancy Tags Two. Ranger: Bone folder, craft mat, water spritzer, water brush, Heat gun. White seam binding ribbon, Masking paper, Diamond Stickles, Scissors for fussy cutting, Glue dots. 

 This card size is 14.5 cm x 21 cm. To make the card base, fold one of the A4 cards in half. Use a bone folder to sharpen the fold. From the remaining A4 card, die cut an oval using the S4-356 largest die. Using the die shape seen in the card photo, from the S4-030 fancy tag die set. Cut this 6 times. Glue the die cuts together making chipboard. 

 From the Paper Pad, find the background printed-paper with the flower clusters. Cut two of the clusters out, making sure you chose opposites. Having the leaves pointing down at the point of the cluster on both images. Cut also the same shapes from masking paper. Find the background paper from the paper pad with banners and cut out two of the Peace banners this will be the sentiment for the card. 

To prepare the ribbon, apply broken china ink to your craft mat then mist with water. Roll the ribbon into the mix. Add more ink as needed to get depth of color and an uneven color. You can dry the ribbon with the heat gun. Make two triple bows. To make the butterfly over lay, use the larger swirl image from the HCPC 3654 Stamp Set . Stamp the image with Staz-On ink on to clear card stock, repeat this so you have two. 

From the second stamping, you will only need the image of the butterfly. Flip the stamped image over. You will now be working from the backside of the stamped image. Bring the color to these butterflies, flowers and leaves using the Copic makers listed. To cut this stamped image so it will fit the tag you need to first place the clear card stock on top of the tag. Holding the layers securely together, with scissors cut away the excess clear card stock in the oval shape. Adhere the oval to the tag. Now, to put it all together: Not yet gluing down, position the embellishments on to the card base front. 1st, the die cut fancy oval, 2nd the tag, 3rd the bows then the flower cluster masks. So you can see that all is aligned, centered and balanced. 

Leaving the flower cluster mask in its place, remove all of the embellishments from the card. Using the stamp positioner, the small swirl stamp from the HCPC 3654 stamp set and Old Olive ink. 

Stamp the swirl so you will see the rose buds peeking out from under the flower cluster mask. Repeat this for the other side of the card. With the water brush, drag the ink from the edge of the image to fill the leaves in. Add a little broken china ink to the rose buds. With Double Dots adhere the fancy frame to the card base, then the flower clusters. 

Adhere the tag to the center with double dots, making sure you add enough height so the bows will be able to be tucked under the tag. Adhere the bows with glue dots so they will be tucked just under swirls of the tag. Fold the extra cut butterfly in half and attach in its place with a cut to size glue dot. For the sentiment, cut one of the banners in half and glue under each end of the complete banner. Place and adhere to the card. 
To finish, add stickles to the flower centers, rose buds, along the wholes on the fancy frame and to the swirls and butterfly on the clear card stock.
