Shasta Flower Trio by Louise Healy
- Fold a 4 3/4" x 12" piece of green cardstock in half to form an A6 top-fold card.
- Edge a 4 1/4" x 5 1/2" 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 2 1/2" x 4 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 a LIGHT coat of color to the embossed image, then tape a piece of screen over the image and add more color through the screen, remove and clean stencil.
- Use a ruler and pencil to measure in 1/2" from the left edge, draw a line up to each side of the flower, cut away that 1/2" going around the edge of the flower (so the petals pop out now).
- Measure 1/4" down from the top edge, draw a line to each side of the small top flower, cut away the 1/4" going around the top of the flower.
- Adhere the flower to a 2 1/8" x 4 3/8" black mat, edge a 2 1/2" x 4 3/4" green mat with a black marker then adhere the flower layer to the green mat.
- Use foam tape to add the flower to the card front then add three white Candis.
