Flowers for Card Group

Card group was Tuesday night and I didn't feel like cutting up a lot of paper so I dug out this beautiful set of long pink notecards with matching envelopes. It was a set put out by Hero Arts a few years back. I had purchased the set for $0.25 at a used stamp sale gauging by the price tag and after not using them all this time I suddenly wish I had more! LOL

Card measures 6" x 3"
STAMPS: large branch - Rubber Stampede, linen bkgd and tag - Stampin' Up! (Too Terrific Tags set)
INKS: Stampin' Up! Pink Pirouette, Kiwi Kiss and Close to Cocoa, Staz-On Timber Brown, Distress Antique Linen
SUPPLIES: Dove blender pen, pop-dots, irredescent glitter glue, and sheer green ribbon, Fiskars hand-held rectangle punch
  1. Stamp branch on white cardstock using Timber Brown.
  2. Use blender pen and inks to color in branch and flowers.
  3. Stamp branch on scrap white, color, and trim out three flowers.
  4. Using Antique Linen ink, stamp over branch panel with Linen bkgd.
  5. Apply pop-dots to spare flowers and adhere in correct position over branch panel.
  6. Use glitter glue to highlight all flower centers.
  7. Stamp tag on white cardstock using Timber Brown.
  8. Color in branch on tag and use watered down Close to Cocoa around edges.
  9. Trim tag closely and punch with rectangle punch.
  10. Thread ribbon thru hole and loop as shown.
  11. Apply all layers to cardfront using pop-dots on the back of the tag.
