Quick Instructions for this Project
- Cut a piece of heavy blue-gray card stock to 8 1/2” tall by 5 1/2″ wide. Score in the middle and fold.
- Emboss a piece of light green card stock and cut to 5 1/4″ tall by 4″ wide.
- On a piece of white card stock stamp the clay pot in lime green ink using the Rock a Block. Brush the pot with new sprout ink on the shadow part of the pot and shade the pot with a brown watercolor pencil. Spread the brown with a water brush.
- Stamp the Mini Flowers in atlantic, lilac, and amethyst, cleaning the stamp between colors. Stamp the Tiny Petal in lime. Stamp the Tiny Flowers in peony. Stamp the Tiny Leaves in green tea. Stamp the Tiny Fern in sage. Dot lime green glitter glue on the leaves.
- Stamp the Mini Butterfly on a separate piece of white card stock in black ink. Fussy cut out the butterfly and squeeze on glossy accents. Be sure not to shake the bottle because this will add bubbles in the finished product. Let the butterfly sit until the glossy accent is completely dry. Don’t use a heat tool to speed up the process.
- Once the butterfly is dry attach 3-d tape to the back and stick it to the pot. Fussy cut out the potted planter and attach 3-d tape to the back. Dry fit the planter and the sentiment sticker on the light green card stock. Once you know where everything will go, tape the planter and sentiment. Wrap green ribbon around the light green card stock and adhere with glue on the back side.
- Glue the light green card stock to the blue gray card stock. And that’s it!
