Festive Friday Tutorial
Your Step-by-Step Guide

1.  Score the Whisper White Thick cardstock at 5-1/2″ to form the card base.  Crease using a bone folder.

2.  Run Balmy Blue cardstock through the Big Shot using the largest Rectangle Stitched Framelit.  Adhere to the card base using SNAIL adhesive.

3.  Ink the image in Tuxedo Black Memento ink.  Using Blender Pens and inks, color the leaves Old Olive, the petals Balmy Blue, and the centers Pineapple Punch. Die cut using the second largest Rectangle Stitched Framelit.  Adhere to the card base at an angle using dimensionals.  Accent the centers with clear rhinestones.

4.  Use the “thanks” Well Written framelit to die cut a Balmy Blue and Old Olive “thanks”.   Adhere the Old Olive one to the card base as shown.  Next, adhere the Balmy Blue one on top of it, offsetting it slightly to give a shadow effect.

5.  Ink the sentiment in Balmy Blue and stamp onto Whisper White.  Snip the left end into a “V”.   Adhere to the card base using dimensionals.  Accent the right end with three rhinestones which have been colored blue using a Dark Balmy Blue Stampin’ Blend.
