Cut Designer Series Paper into strips. Each strip is cut into strips at angles no more than 12mm at the widest end and 5mm at other end. Only require 3 strips of each design (for 1 card)
You don't need to be too fussy, as they don't need to be uniform in size.
Each strip is glued onto the Card Front piece of Whisper White leaving a gap of only 2mm between each one. When dry trim down to 9.6 x 14cm. Make sure all the edges are secure.
Attach the Card Front to the Whisper White Mat. Then adhere the Card Front to the Card Base. Put to one side to dry.
Die cut all the leaves - 2 x large Just Jade, 1 x leaf Pretty Peacock, 4 x small leaves in velum. You will also need 2 leaves from the Forever Gold Die-Cut Specialty Paper.
Take one of the Just Jade leaves and cut it down to approx 5cm from the top of the leaf.
Layer the the large Just Jade leaf going from below center of card going up to the right upper corner. The half Just Jade Leaf going from the stem of the larger one across to lower left corner.Adhere into place using either Multi Purpose Glue or Mini Glue Dots.
On top of these you can layer the Pretty Peacock leaf and add a gold leaf on top. Place another gold leaf on top of the half leaf and adhere down. We will adhere the velum leaves later.
On the Sentiment piece of Whisper White Cardstock stamp your sentiment using Memento Tuxedo Black ink.
Place dimensionals onto the back and adhere down on top of the stems to hide them.
With those 4 velum leaves, put a little glue onto the back of the stem and tuck them under the sentiment...2 from the top and the other 2 from the bottom
Turn the velum over to the back and add Multi Purpose glue under the areas where the leaves are on the front to hide the glue. Adhere the velum to the card Front.
Last step is to adhere the Whisper White Card Insert into the inside of the card.
Congratulations you have completed another card..
