Heart Swans Border Flourish by Louise Healy

  1. Fold a 7 1/2" x 11" piece of Sky cardstock in half to form a top fold card
  2. Cut a 5" x 7" piece of white cardstock, adhere to the card front
  3. Tape the Border Flourish to the bottome right corner of a 4 3/4" x 6 3/4" piece of white cardstock with removable tape, use the stencil brush to add blue ink through the stencil, clean and dry the stencil, turn it over to reverse the design and tape it to the bottom left corner and ink a second flourish
  4. Use the brush and blue ink with the Picasso stencil to add some "clouds" above the flourish area and in the background of the flourish area, keep it light where the swans will be pasted
  5. Tape the Heart Swans stencil above the flourishes with removable tape
  6. Use a palette knife and paste spreader to apply Glossy White Embossing Paste over the design, remove stencil and place in water for cleaning later, sprinkle the wet paste with Crystal Glitter, tap off extra, let paste dry
  7. When the paste is dry, use the Picasso and Embossing Tool to dry emboss the clouds to give them more dimension
  8. Adhere the swans to the white mat on the card front
  9. Wrap a white ribbon around the card front and tie a bow
