Supplies

  • Flower Soft Heather
  • DMC Floss 3052
  • Marvy Vase Punch
  • DCWV Flower Shower Spring Cardstock Stack (12" x 12")
  • DCWV Flower Shower Spring Matstack (4.5" x 6.5")
  • white cardstock
  • Brilliance Ivy Ink
  • Scrappy Glue
  • Thanks2You {Stamps} of Life Clear Stamp Set

Directions

  1. Locate green card base color in 12" x 12" cardstock stack and cut into an 8 1/2" x 5 1/2" base. If you are making two, it is easiest to cut it down to 8 1/2" x 12", then 8 1/2" x 11" to leave you with the largest possible scrap piece for use on other projects.
  2. Fold cardstock to make a 5 1/2" x 4 1/4" card front.
  3. Locate the printed cardstock in the 4.5" x 6.5" matstack and punch out a vase from it.
  4. Locate the matching solid color for the vase in the 12" x 12" cardstock stack. Cut a 3 1/4" x 3 3/4" mat.
  5. Cut a 3" x 3 1/2" piece of white cardstock.
  6. Stamp the two agapanthus images on the white cardstock using Brilliance Ivy ink.
  7. Stamp thanks on a 1 5/8" x 15/16" piece of white cardstock. (Really I just stamped it on scrap and cut it down evenly.)
  8. Give the ink a few minutes to dry, or handle carefully.
  9. Cut 1 7/8" x 1 3/16" mat for thanks image. (Really I laid it on the paper an just cut a mat by eye because its so small.)
  10. Dry fit to card. There will not be much extra space. Trim thanks and mat more if necessary.
  11. Mount stamped images onto their respective mats.
  12. Attach vase over stems.
  13. Adhere agapanthus image to card front with double sided tape.
  14. Adhere thanks image to card front with dimensional tape.
  15. Place dot of glue on agapanthus buds.
  16. Sprinkle Heather colored Flower Soft mixture over glue until well covered. Tap off excess.
  17. Tie bow and glue to front of vase.
  18. Let glue dry.
