Bearded Iris by Laura Drahozal


  1. Cut the base card stock 8-1/2" X 5-1/2" and fold on the side.
  2. Tape the Bearded Iris Stencil over green card stock with removable tape.  Use a tape strip all the way across the top of the stencil that will act as a hinge later.  Then tape both of the sides and bottom.
  3. Use the palette knife to remove the Glossy White Embossing Paste from the container and place on the paste spreader.  Place a strip of paste on the spreader that is as wide as the Iris image.
  4. Set the paste spreader on the stop of the stencil and pull it towards you, maintaining contact with the stencil, and filling in all the wells.
  5. Carefully remove the tape from the bottom and sides of the stencil.
  6. Using the top tape as a hinge, lift the bottom of the stencil carefully up and then away from the project.  Let dry completely.
  7. Color the Iris image with the Spectrum Markers.
  8. Squeeze the Amplify onto the iris to create the "beards" and heat with the embossing gun until it puffs up.
  9. Assemble the card, using a Glue Dot to adhere the knot in the May Arts ribbon.
