Step by Step
Place the self-cling ‘Happy Mother’s Day’ rubber stamp onto the clear acrylic stamping block. Ink it up with lilac pigment ink. Stamp onto white card, whilst resting on the foam stamping mat.
Shake over holographic embossing powder and remove excess. Heat with the heat tool over a heat-proof surface, until the image becomes slightly raised and sparkly. Do not overheat and burn! Allow to cool.
Cut to a rectangle measuring 6.7cm x 3cm. Using the glue stick, attach to spare lilac card and trim around leaving a border of lilac card showing all around the edges.
Randomly stamp the rose all over spare white card in Whispers lilac ink, remembering to re-ink the stamp each time. Allow to dry. Cut to a 4.5cm strip and attach to the top edge of a landscape-orientated lilac card blank. Trim off any excess at each side.
Apply lilac floral sticky ribbon along the raw edge. Cut a 0.7cm strip of spare lilac card and glue horizontally onto the patterned white section. Cut another 0.2cm strip and attach above leaving a 2mm gap. Trim away any excess at the sides. Then attach the greeting using Stick It! 3D foam dots.
Attach three circles from the Papermania Paper Shapes Caddy to the bottom half of the card. Glue coloured side face down, so the white circle is visible. Punch three lilac flowers using the Xcut punch and glue to the centre of each circle.
Finish with two flower gem stones and a heart glued to the centre of each punched flower using Anita’s Tacky Glue.
