Card


From one of the 12”x 12” sheets cut a 6” x 12” card base fold in half & score.
Roughly colour 28 small white paper flowers with Archival Ink - Rose Madder & a finger dauber, 18 flowers need to be coloured both sides.
To make the buds use the flower shaping kit to shape the flowers by rolling the ball stylus to the centre of the flower repeat with 18 of the double sided coloured flowers (two petals = one bud) apply glue to the centre tips of the petals & pinch to form a ball, add glue to the centre of the second petal as well as the centre tips place the 1st flower ball into the centre & again pinch into a ball repeat to make 9 buds.












  













To make the roses, place the single sided coloured flowers colour side down & press each petal turn over & press down in the centre of the flower & adhere a bud to the centre.





Trim the ”Miss Betty”  blue dots Paper  to 5¾” x 5¾” & attach to the front of the card base leaving an even border.

From the cream lacy paper nest the No.2 & No.3. Decorative Oval Dies & cut to make a frame, on the remaining paper stamp the Sage & Grace leaves with Archival Ink - Olive & colour with Distress Ink - Forest Moss & a finger dauber & cut out with the matching die.

From the white glossy doily paper cut the Bride & Groom image.

Use the following pieces from the paper pack.


Attach the two brackets to the top of the card one lower than the other.

Attach the scallop border to the bottom of the card front.
Attach the tag to the left side & adhere a sticky pearl to the top of the tag, next the circle “XO” under the bottom of the tag.
Adhere the N0.3 frame to the centre of the card front, mount the bride & groom with foam tape to the bottom of the oval frame, mount the “Congratulations” sentiment  with foam tape over the tag.

Adhere three leaves, four roses & two buds around the oval frame.
Tie a bow from the satin ribbon & adhere to the left side of the frame under the roses.
  

Gift Box

                          
From the other two sheets of 12” x 12” white cardstock cut two 7½” x 7½” squares.


Using the Crafters Companion Ultimate Pro place the base square along the top edge of the box base side & score on the 1st score line repeat on all sides of the box base (it's a good idea to pencil mark base/lid & erase once assembled), then turn the Ultimate Pro around to the box lid side place the lid square along the top edge & score on the 1st score line repeat on all sides of the lid, make one straight cut from each corner to form the tabs.

I find the Crafters Companion Ultimate Pro the easiest to make boxes & matching lids with no fuss & all the measurements are already done!!!



Place (Do Not Stick) the other full square of the ”Miss Betty”  blue dots Paper to the front of the box lid, hold in place with washi tape line up the No. 3 & No. 4 Decorative Oval to cut the hole from the centre (blue frames not used).




Attach the plastic acetate with double sided tape to the front of the lid, attach the blue dots Paper to the front of the lid lining up over the frame cut out.


Turn the lid to the inside & adhere the tabs to form a box lid, the same can be done to the base.



From the other piece of cream lacy paper nest the No.3 & No.4 Decorative Oval Dies & cut to make a frame, only using the outer frame adhere to the acetate inside the oval cut out.


Using glue adhere two leaves to the top left corner with one rose & two buds & gift wrap with extra satin ribbon
