How To Guide - Step 1

From the A4 white card, cut a piece off, approx 7 1/4 x 4 1/2". Set the rest to one side. 

Spray the Izink sprays on to the cut off cardstock, and dry thoroughly. 

How To Guide - Step 2

Use the die shown here, from the Botanical Wings Die Collection, to cut out TWO inky die cut mats, using your die cutting machine. 

How To Guide - Step 3

Use this coordinating detailed die, to cut out TWO die cut embellishments, from the white card set aside earlier. Set the remainder of the white card to one side. 

How To Guide - Step 4

Adhere the detailed, die cut embellishments, on to the inky die cut mats. 

How To Guide - Step 5

Adhere these on to the left and right hand edges of your white card blank, as seen here. 

I decided to trim my card blank to the same length as my die cuts (6 3/4 x 6 3/4"), but this is personal preference. 

Set card to one side. 

How To Guide - Step 6

Lay the Just Because solid die, from the Kind Friends Die Collection, on to the white card set aside, and the detailed die on to the black cardstock, and run these through your die cutting machine 

How To Guide - Step 7

Adhere the black die cut sentiment, on to the white die cut sentiment.

Set to one side.

How To Guide - Step 8

Ink up this floral stamp from the Stand Tall Stamp Collection, with the Onyx Black Versafine.

Stamp it in the centre of your card, but leaving sufficient space at the bottom to add your sentiment die cut (in the next step). 

How To Guide - Step 9

Adhere your die cut sentiment in place, so that the base of the floral stems just kiss the top of the sentiment. 

How To Guide - Step 10

To finish, add sequins to the centres of your die cut flowers, and on/around your stamped image.
