Hello to you all.

Directions: Each of the finished envelope cards measure15.5 cm x 10 cm.
From the Bazzill, cut 30 cm x 11 cm. Score at 10 cm and 20 cm. Sharpen the folds with the bone folder. Cut away a triangle on both sides of front. From the fold to outer opposite lower edge. Making a slant. Distress this edge. From the cut away card stock trim .5 cm from the squared edges to form a mat for the card front. Distress all the edges of this triangle. Adhere to the card fronts. Using wet glue thinly along the edges, close the card to make a open envelope. 

Stamp the Poppy flowers with embossing powder on the bazzill card stock, then die cut with the matching die set. Color with the glimmer mists and watercolor brush.

Stamp the Delightful Daisies leaves and the birds with black ink onto the SUP A4 card stock, color with the glimmer-mists and watercolor brush, as you would water colour.

Taking the Deluxe Flower Shaping Kit, shape the Poppies and leaves. Adhere the Poppies together with a brad. Make the screw swirls from a 1.5 mm strip of bazzill and the quilling tool from the Deluxe Flower Shaping Kit. Make a double bow from the seam binding ribbon.

Find the sentiment in the paper collection. Using the Timeless Amour die set, die cut the frame from paper found in the paper collection. The order of placement of embellishments: Adhere the frame to the center of envelope front. Adhere the leaves in place, add the ribbon, flowers, sentiment, birds, screw swirls and lastly add the stickles to the birds and frame. 

The Tag: The tag base is cut from the bazzill 15.3 cm x 8 5 cm. The matting paper is found in the paper collection and is cut 13.5 cm x 7 5 cm. The tag front water color paper is cut 13 cm x 7 cm. Stamp the Poppy image with black ink and color with the Glimmer-mist and water color brush as you would water colors. Adhere together. 

NOTE: The two cards are made with the same products. They show different ways of arranging.
A lot of yummy close ups for you to enjoy. The tag card looks a lot harder to make than what it really is, so give it a go...a warning, it will become addictive...LOL

Now we have the third card treat... the ezel card. Softer in colour and trimmed with lace and ribbon.
“Best wishes”
