Card Tutorial: A Bouquet With Best Wishes


Everyone needs a note of encouragement every now and then. Today's tutorial is all about that!
If you wish to create a card like mine, here's the list of supplies for you:
Sizzix Thinlits Die Set 23PK - Sentiment Words, Thin
Sizzix Framelits Die Set 18PK - Flower Garden and Mini Bouquet
Stampers Anonymous Cling Mount Stamps - Flower Garden
 
Sizzix Big Shot Machine Only (White and Gray)  
Sizzix Accessory - Standard Magnetic Platform for Wafer-Thin Dies  
Sizzix Accessory - Cutting Pads, Standard, 1 Pair (Mint) 
Sizzix Accessory - Stamper's Secret Weapon 
Other: white cardstock, adhesive, watercolor paper, Gelatos colors, black ink pad, removable tape, ruler, pen, acrylic block, paint brush

Let's get started! 


Start by coloring a piece of watercolor paper with Gelatos to create the flower. Blend the colors with a wet paint brush.


On the Sizzix Accessory - Stamper's Secret Weapon, lay the colored paper. Ink up the flower stamp of your choice from the
Stampers Anonymous Cling Mount Stamps - Flower Garden set and stamp. The Stamper's Secret Weapon provides the extra cushion to cling stamps to allow full contact with the paper for a crisp image.


Repeat the same technique to stamp the stem and leaves.


To die-cut the stamped flower and stem, create the following Sizzix Sandwich: on Sizzix Accessory - Standard Magnetic Platform for Wafer-Thin Dies, place another Sizzix Accessory - Cutting Pads, Standard, 1 Pair (Mint). On the Standard Cutting Pad, lay the stamped images. Place the corresponding dies from the
Sizzix Framelits Die Set 18PK - Flower Garden and Mini Bouquet die, blade-side down to frame the stamped images. Cover with the other Standard Cutting Pad and pass the entire Sizzix Sandwich through the Sizzix Big Shot machine. 


Trim cardstock to 5.25" x 4". 

To die-cut the sentiment, create the following Sizzix Sandwich: on Sizzix Accessory - Standard Magnetic Platform for Wafer-Thin Dies, place another Sizzix Accessory - Cutting Pads, Standard, 1 Pair (Mint). On the Standard Cutting Pad, lay the cardstock. Place the word dies 'Best Wishes' from the Sizzix Thinlits Die Set 23PK - Sentiment Words, Thin, blade-side down near the bottom right part of the cardstock. Cover with the other Standard Cutting Pad and pass the entire Sizzix Sandwich through the Sizzix Big Shot machine.


Here's the die-cut sentiment block.


Color the part of the card base that will show through from under the die-cut sentiment block. Attach the sentiment block to the card.


Attach the flower and stem.


Splatter some gold ink to the card.

When dry, draw a frame around the card with ruler and pen to finish.

Hope you enjoyed today's card tutorial!
