Corner Flowers by Laura Drahozal

INSTRUCTIONS

Cut base 9" by 6 1/4" and fold in half to 4 1/2" by 6 1/4".
Cut purple card stock to 4 1/2" by 6 1/4" and green card stock to 4 1/4" by 6".
Tape the Corner Flowers Stencil over the green card stock and onto the craft mat using the removable tape.
 Make sure to cover the top first with one piece of tape.  You will use this as a hinge. You need to tape all the sides.
Use the palette knife to remove the paste from the jar and place it on the paste spreader.  
Be sure to create a strip across the paste spreader that will cover the entire width of the Flowers Stencil.
Place the paste spreader on top edge of the flowers stencil.
Pull the paste spreader towards you, keeping it in contact with the stencil, and filling in all the wells.
Use the palette knife to remove the excess paste and place it back into the container.
Carefully remove the tape from the bottom and sides of the stencil.
Lift the bottom edge of the stencil, using the remaining tape as a hinge, until you can completely lift it from the project.
While the paste is still wet, carefully sprinkle the embossing powder onto it.
 You are coloring the flowers, so plan your colors accordingly.  Keep in mind, this method of coloring does not create perfectly clean edges.
Heat the paste and embossing powder.  It will bubble more when it is the wettest, so if you want really bumpy flowers, heat it immediately.
Using the handle and the Spring Sentiments stamp, stamp with the Versafine on white card stock.
Trim the stamp, creating a mat around it with purple card stock.
Assemble the card, adding the ribbon on the edge.
