Love & Affection Lovely Copper Flowers
P retty card with some coppery shine using Stampin' Up! products.
Cut card stock and designer series paper pieces to the following sizes using a Stampin' Trimmer:
- card from Crumb Cake Card Stock at 5-1/2" x 8-1/2" and scored at 4-1/4"
- 4" x 5-1/4" from Night of Navy Card Stock
- 3-7/8" x 5-1/8" of copper foil flowers and leaves on Crumb Cake background design from Affectionately Yours Specialty Designer Series Paper
- 3/4" x 4-5/8" from Night of Navy Card Stock
- 2-3/4" x 3" from Crumb Cake Card Stock
- 2-1/4" square from Night of Navy Card Stock
- 1-3/4" x 3-1/2" from Copper Foil Sheets
Adhere the rectangle of Affectionately Yours Specialty Designer Series Paper to the large rectangle of Night of Navy Card Stock. Then, adhere these to the front of the Crumb Cake card.
Adhere the long thin strip of Night of Navy Card Stock horizontally across the center of the card front.
Pick out the embossing folder with the floral brackets from the Floral Affection Embossing Folders. Place the Crumb Cake rectangle into the embossing folder so the brackets are running horizontally across the card stock. Place the folder with the card stock inside on top of a Cutting Pad on your Big Shot Platform at the lowest possible setting. Place another Cutting Pad on top of the folder and run through the Big Shot.
Mount the sentiment of choice from the Love & Affection Photopolymer Set on Block H. Ink it up with the Night of Navy Ink Pad. Stamp it in the center of the dry embossed card stock between the floral brackets.
Adhere the sentiment rectangle to the center of the card front.
Lightly rub the Embossing Buddy across the Night of Navy square. This will help keep stray bits of embossing powder from sticking where you don't want them.
Mount the large outline flower image on Block C. Ink it up with the VersaMark Pad and stamp it in the center of the Night of Navy square.
Mount the large spiky flower center image on Block A. Ink it up with the VersaMark Pad and stamp it in the center of the stamped flower image.
Sprinkle Copper Stampin' Emboss Powder onto the stamped flower image and tap off excess. Return excess powder to the jar.
Use the highest setting on the Heat Tool to melt the embossing powder. It will be smooth and shiny when completely melted. TIP: Use a clothespin to hold one corner of the card stock while you are using the Heat Tool so that you don't burn your fingers.
Carefully cut out the heat embossed flower image by hand using Paper Snips.
Pick out the feathery leaf, small solid leaf, and small four-petaled flower thinlits from the Botanical Builder Thinlits. Place the strip of Copper Foil Sheet on the Precision Plate on top of your Platform on your Big Shot. Place the thinlits on top. Place a Cutting Pad on top and run through the Big Shot. Use the Die Brush to remove the foil cut outs if needed.
Adhere the feathery copper leaf to the back of the heat embossed flower using Stampin' Dimensionals so that the feathery leaf sticks out to the left just a bit.
Remove the protective backings from the Dimensionals and adhere the flower and feathery leaf to the card front in the lower right corner of the sentiment rectangle.
Use Mini Glue Dots to adhere the small solid leaf to the card front so it sticks out from behind the flower on the upper right (onto the strip of Night of Navy).
Adhere the small copper flower to the center of the heat embossed flower using a Mini Glue Dot.
Adhere a large, Night of Navy circle from the Regals Enamel Shapes to the center of the flower.
