How To Guide - Step 1

Swipe each of the Izink Pigment ink pads from left to right, across the front of your DL card blank.

Vary the lengths and widths of each swipe to create your background. 

How To Guide - Step 2

Ink up one of the floral stamps, from Our Story Stamp And Die Collection, with the Versafine.

Stamp coming down from the top left corner of your background. 

How To Guide - Step 3

Ink up the same stamp again OR you can ink up the other floral stamp, in the same collection. 

Stamp it coming on to the left edge of your background under, but connected, to the first stamped image. 

How To Guide - Step 4

Ink up either of the stamps again and stamp, in a different orientation, coming on to the left hand edge of the card, thus creating a beautiful floral border down the side of your card. 

Set your card to one side to dry, as the Pigment inks are slow drying. 

How To Guide - Step 5

Ink up one of the floral stamps again and stamp it on to the white card (5 x 4"). 

Place the coordinating die over your stamped image, securing with low tack tape if preferred and run it through your die cutting machine. 

How To Guide - Step 6

You will need to cut your die cut element in to TWO pieces, both with a straight edge on the left hand side of the element, as shown here. Where you make the cut is up to you. 

How To Guide - Step 7

Slightly shape and mould the die cut elements with your fingers.

Apply glue down the straight edge ONLY, on both elements and adhere flush with the left hand edge of the card blank, where required.  

How To Guide - Step 8

Ink up the sentiment stamp with the Versafine and stamp bottom left.
