How To Guide - Step 1

Apply the Villainous Potion Distress Oxide to your craft, or glass mat, and spritz with water. 

Smoosh the white card (7 3/4 x 5 1/4") in to the ink. 

Dry this off naturally, or with a heat gun. 

How To Guide - Step 2

Ink up the stamp from the Textured Wall Stamp Collection, with the Iced Spruce Oxide.

Spritz with water and randomly stamp on to your background. 

How To Guide - Step 3

Use a black pen to draw a decorative, wiggly frame, around your background, and set to one side. 

How To Guide - Step 4

Place the star die, from the Build a Bloom Creative Dies set, on to the A4 black card.

Roughly cut off a piece of the card big enough for the die, and set the rest of the card to one side for later. 

Run the die through your die cutting machine. 

How To Guide - Step 5

Glue the die cut star bottom left of your inked background, and set to one side. 

How To Guide - Step 6

Using the solid dies, from the Cinched Together Die Collection, die cut a selection of them, from both the white and black card, as shown in this photo. You dont have to use them all on this card. 

You will need to set aside the remaining white cardstock for the next step, so when cutting the white ones, roughly cut a piece of the white card off, big enough for the number of dies you are cutting out.  

How To Guide - Step 7

Apply the Fossilized Amber Oxide on to your mat, and spritz with water.

Smoosh the remaining white card, that you set aside in the last step, and pick up the ink.

Dry the ink off, then repeat with the Villainous Potion Oxide.

Dry off completely, before proceeding to the next step. 

How To Guide - Step 8

Using the detailed dies, from the Cinched Together Die Collection, cut out a random selection of florals and foliage, from the inked background you created in the previous step. Again you may not use them all, but any left over, can be kept for another day. 

How To Guide - Step 9

Using the photos on the Cinched Together packaging as a guide, build up your layered flowers, combining the black and white die cut elements, with the coloured elements, as shown in this image. 

How To Guide - Step 10

Before gluing down your floral elements, have a play and decide which ones you want to use, and how you want your layout to look.

Once decided, glue all your elements in place, over the black die cut star. 

How To Guide - Step 11

Once dry, adhere this on to the black, top folding card blank. 

How To Guide - Step 12

Adhere sequins on, around, and tucked under, your 3D elements. 

How To Guide - Step 13

Ink up the sentiment stamp from the Romantic Rose Stamp And Die Collection, with the Onyx Black Versafine. 

Stamp just above your floral design. 

How To Guide - Step 14

To finish, ink up the sentiment stamp, from the Bonjour Slimline Stamp And Die Collection, with the Versafine, and stamp bottom right of your artwork.
