Instructions:

  1. Front: Place your card with the fold on the left. Cut a 4 3/4"x6 1/4" Colorist green dots paper and mat on black with 1/16”. Glue it centered on the blank white card. Cut a 4”x4 1/2" Colorist white/black tiny dots portion of the floral corner paper. Mat on black with 1/16” borders. Glue it centered on the green paper, 1 1/4" from the bottom.
  2. Stamp 4 roses rectangle images (I used 1 of each image, plus a second of the one with the 2 open blossoms together) on white cardstock with black StazOn ink. Cut out the images and mat each on black cardstock with 1/16” borders. Use the #123 pencil and a wet paintbrush to paint in the roses/buds on each image. I used more water/less paint for the lighter areas, with more paint for the shaded areas. Mix some of each of the #168 and #166 pencils on your wet brush for the green leaves. Arrange the rectangles on the white/black tiny dots paper on the card, evenly spaced with a larger space at the center as shown.
  3. Finish the front: Stamp “DO SMALL THINGS WITH GREAT LOVE” on Colorist pink dots paper. Trim to a 1 3/16”x1 3/8” rectangle and mat on black cardstock with 1/16” borders. Foam tape on white cardstock leaving 1/4" borders. Mat on black with 1/16” borders. Glue it centered inside the center space on the white/black tiny dots paper. Stamp the large roses/pendants image on white cardstock with black ink. Paint in the large rose/2 leaves and cut it out. Cut out the smaller rose on the right side and a cluster of leaves separately. Paint them in and overlap the smaller rose over 2 leaves. Layer the roses together with foam tape and add to the lower right side of the stamped rectangles as shown. Glue a 4 3/4" length of 1/4" wide black glimmer ribbon and glue it across the green dots paper, 1/2" from the bottom of the card. Tie a black bow and Zot™ in place.
  4. Inside: Cut a 5”x2” Colorist green dots paper and mat the long sides on black cardstock with 1/16” borders. Glue it across the card, 2” from the bottom. Cut a 5”x3/4” Colorist white/black tiny dots paper and mat the long sides on black cardstock with 1/16” borders. Glue it centered across the green dots paper.
  5. Stamp “LET YOUR DREAMS SOAR” on Colorist pink dots paper and trim to
  6. 1 1/4"x1 1/8” and mat on black with 1/16” borders. Mat on white with 1/4" borders and again on black with 1/16” borders. Glue it centered on the papers, 1 1/4" from the left. Stamp a roses rectangle image on white cardstock. Trim, mat, and paint in the roses/leaves as you did for the front. Glue it vertically on the layered papers, 5/8” from the right side. Stamp the large roses/pendants image on white cardstock. Paint in the large rose/leaves and cut it out. Foam tape it on the card as shown. Add knotted ribbon.
