Versa Mark. Gold stamens. Quelling tool 

This card size is 14.9 cm x 21 cm. To make the card base take the SUP A4 and cut 14.9 cm x 21 cm, fold at 10.5 cm. From the paper collection chose the paper with the beige spots and black back ground. Cut the card front matting at 14.4 cm x 10cm. Use the flip side of the paper to cut the card front at13.9 cm x 9.4 cm. To stamp the sentiment, use the HCPC-3664 My Hero stamp set and HCD-744 die for the pocket watch. 

To only get the part image from the stamp, you need to mask the paper. Stamp the image with Tuxedo Black ink then, emboss with clear embossing powder. Ravel the edges of the papers with the distressing tool. Adhere the papers with Double Dots to the card base. To make the pocket watch; take the HCD-744 die and cut only the pocket watch shape. Use the stamp positioner and stamp with Tuxedo Black ink on the die cut shape. Apply a layer of versa mark to the stamped image of the pocket watch, then clear embossing powder. Fix with the heat gun. To give a gold edge to the pocket watch, apply to the edges versa mark, then gold embossing powder. See photo.

 Adhere the pocket watch to the stamped image on the card front with a Double Dot. To make the flowers and leaves use the HCPC-3856 Delightful Daisies stamp set and the matching die set, HCD 1-760. With the vellum stamp with gold embossing powder, then die cut. For the flowers use the same stamp and die set. Stamp with the glitter embossing powder. Color the flower centers with the Pan Pastels. Prick a whole in the center of the flower so you can thread the stamens into the whole later. Use the HCST1-401 Deluxe Flower Shaping Kit to shape the flowers as wanted. Use the water mister to aid in the shaping. This will also dry hard so the flowers will keep their shape better. Thread the stamens in the whole and apply wet glue to fix. Adhere the flowers and leaves in place with the wet glue. 

Cut 2 mm lengths from the paper collection to make the 4 screw swirls. Using the quelling tool, quell the 2 mm strips. Pull the paper off the tool then gently pull on one end to form the screw swirl, cut to the length wanted. Tuck and glue under the flower clusters, 1 at the top and 3 under.

Thats it. Not so hard after all, and a lot of fun. 
You can always change the color choice for the flower centers, this will change the mood of the card. Pink will always give it a girly feel. My be, a few extras of this card would be so handy to have as back ups for those unexpected occasions when you need a card in a hurry.....
A not so fussy card, but in my opinion, very versatile as to what occasion this can be used for.
A ribbon across the front with the bow on the right would also make a unexpected change to a tired for thought.....
Actually, this card has become a fav of mine.....wait till you see whats coming up for next week....I had trouble parting with it.
