Card base: Calypso Coral Cardstock – 5 ½” x 8 ½”; score at 4 ¼” on the long side.
Soft Suede Cardstock mat – 3 3/8” x 4 1/8”
Whisper White Cardstock mat – 3 ¼” x 4”
Fold the Calypso Coral Cardstock card base in half on the fold line. Open the card and place the front of the card in the opened Sparkle Embossing Folder wrapping the back of the card around the folder. Close the folder and make a ‘sandwich’ for the Big Shot Die-Cutting Machine in this order: Standard Platform opened to appropriate tab, a standard cutting pad, the prepared embossing folder with cardstock inside, and a final standard cutting pad. Run this ‘sandwich’ through the machine.
Lay the Stampin’ Pierce Mat down on your work surface and cover with a piece of copy paper. Since the stamps are photopolymer this helps in the stamping process. Place the Whisper White Cardstock mat down and ink up the daisy image in Peekaboo Peach Ink – stamp it full strength and then rotate it just slightly and stamp again without reinking. This give a little shadowed image. Ink up the full flower stamp image with Soft Sky Ink and do the same process as with the daisy flower image. Use the smaller flower image to fill in spaces. The leaves are stamped in Wild Wasabi Ink – fill in as needed and then sponge a bit of the Wild Wasabi Ink in the empty spaces. Stamp the middle of the flowers in Soft Suede Ink. In addition, stamp the ‘you are amazing’ stamp in Soft Suede Ink near the upper right-hand corner.
Layer the stamped mat with the Soft Suede mat. Place Stampin’ Dimensionals on the back.
On the front of your embossed card, apply some Snail Adhesive in the middle. Place the end of the Metallic Thread in Gold on the adhesive and wrap the thread around as many times as you would like. End on the tape and cut; press down all strands into the tape.
Remove the backs from the Stampin’ Dimensionals and apply to card front.
Use the Paper Piercing Tool to lift pearls and place them in the middle of the flowers.
