CREATING PIECES & PARTS
Let’s create the peony. To create the ripples, take your Basic White cardstock and wad it up. Then flatten it out and die-cut your peony parts. TIP: I have also had good luck embossing the die-cut pieces with the Painted Texture embossing folder.
There are 4 layers to the peony plus a stamen. To assemble the peony, start with the smallest layer. Tuck it into the next layer. TIP: You may need to pinch it a bit to get it in place. You will notice that the bases all line-up. Repeat for each layer adding a little dab of glue at the base to keep them together. Curl the petal tips gently if desired. Die-cut the stamen from a scrap of Artistry Blooms DSP and tuck in place with a little dab of glue. Add ink to the blending brush and lightly brush color over the petals.
Use the smooshed ink technique to create the cardstock for the leaves. Layer the leaves and glue behind the peony.
Stamp the sentiment from Peaceful Moments stamp set on vellum using Versamark or gold ink. Heat emboss with gold embossing powder. Punch out with the Timeless Label punch. (THIS PUNCH IS RETIRING – GET YOURS NOW)
Use the Scripty 3D embossing folder to emboss the Artistry Blooms DSP panel. HINT: Line up with the subtle lines in the DSP.
Add Dimensionals to the peony. Adhere peony and sentiment to the embossed panel.
Make 2 separate loops with the gold ribbon. Wrap a glue dot around the ribbon to secure. Tuck behind the peony.
Add some Artistry Blooms sequins. Customize the card insert with a sweet message and add a hint of what is to come to the outside of the envelope.
