  • Step 1

    Fold a half sheet of Pear Pizzazz cardstock in half, creasing well with a bone folder.

  • Step 2

    Adhere a 4" x 5 1/4" piece of Mossy Meadow cardstock to the card base.

  • Step 3

    Stamp the various flowers randomly across a 3 3/4" x 5" piece of Whisper White cardstock in your chosen colors, cleaning the stamps each time you finish with a color. Try not to overlap the flowers at this point, except for stamping the darker centers in the large flowers.

  • Step 4

    Rub this piece well with the Embossing Buddy. THIS IS VERY IMPORTANT!

  • Step 5

    In VersaMark, stamp the largest flower around on this piece, overlapping some of the colored flowers, but not overlapping the VersaMarked flowers. You can hold the paper at an angle to see where you've stamped the clear flowers.

  • Step 6

    At the Heat Station, dump clear embossing powder over the entire piece, tapping any excess powder back into its container. Heat the embossing powder with the Heat Tool until it is completely shiny and set.

  • Step 7

    Back at your table make sure the embossing is cooled. Once it is, sponge Pear Pizzazz ink over the entire piece in a circular motion. You can keep adding layers of color to make it darker, so start off softly and fairly light. Once all the unembossed spaces are colored green, take a tissue and gently wipe any excess ink from the embossed flowers. Adhere this piece to the card front.

  • Step 8

    Use the Hello Thinlit to cut two hellos, one in Coastal Cabana and one in Mossy Meadow. First adhere the green hello with tiny droplets of green glue. Follow with the Coastal Cabana hello, offset from the green one just a bit so it looks like a shadow.
