Black-Eyed Susan by Louise Healy


Fold a 7" x 10" piece of yellow cardstock in half to form an A7 top-fold card
Edge a 5" x 7" piece of decorative paper with a coordinating marker, then adhere to the front of the card
Place the stencil face down (so you can't see the stencil number) on the large platform of a die cut machine, place a  4 1/4" x 5 1/2" piece of white cardstock over the stencil (I like to mist my paper with a little water first), add a rubber embossing mat, two clean cutting plates, a put stack through the machine
Remove the embossed image and stencil from the machine, place face up on your work surface and tape the stencil in place over the embossed image with removable tape
Use 1/4" stencil brushes and the Picasso tool to add color to the embossed image, remove and clean stencil
Use a VersaMark pen on the centers of the flowers, sprinkle Aged Black Embossing Enamel, tap off extra enamel, heat set, let image cool
Adhere the flowers to a 4 3/8" x 5 5/8" dark brown mat, then to a 4 5/8" x 5 7/8" yellow mat
Attach some May Arts green ric-rak across the lower part of the card front with Beacon Adhesive FabriTac
Adhere the flowers to the card front and use Glue Dots to add a May Arts Ribbon bow near the lower right side of the card
