Designer Tips: I found it easier to start with lighter colors, then lightly build more color, adding the dark colors last. For best results, shake the Smooch well before and during use.
- Place the white cardstock on your covered work area. Place the butterflies mask on the white cardstock. Lightly spritz over the butterflies area of the mask with candle glow Smooch, then add some cashmere, then holly berries. Now add a little more candle glow. Spritz candle glow over the left side and bottom area of the mask. Add evergreen over the left side and bottom, concentrating the most color over the lower left portion of the mask as shown. Remove the mask, wipe it off, and set it aside. Spritz candle glow very lightly over the entire piece, including the areas that were covered by the mask and outside the masked area. Allow the spritzed cardstock to dry.
- Spritz a butterfly resistant canvas with candle glow, then holly berries Smooch. Blot with a paper towel. Spritz a large flower resistant canvas with gold glow, then spritz some areas with holly berries and blot. Spritz a medium flower with cashmere, then lightly with holly berries and blot. Spritz the leaf resistant canvas with candle glow, then spritz portions of it with evergreen and blot. Let the pieces dry.
- Trim the spritzed cardstock into a 5” x 6 ½” rectangle and glue even with the card front. Add the “Best Wishes” sticker to the lower left portion of the card over the evergreen ink. Add the spritzed resistant canvas pieces as shown. Zot ribbon in place.
- Use another piece of white cardstock, the mask, and Smooch spritzes to create a second spritzed rectangle for the inside. Spritz with candle glow, then cashmere, then holly berries. Add a small amount of evergreen to the left side. Let dry, then trim smaller than the front and glue to the inside as shown. Spritz a small piece of cardstock with evergreen heavily to create a dark color. Let dry, then add “Happy Birthday” dazzle words to the spritzed cardstock. Trim to a rectangle and glue as shown. Spritz a small flower with candle glow, then evergreen, then blot with a paper towel. Spritz a tiny flower with candle glow. Let the flowers dry, then layer them together and add to the inside as shown.
