2.28.2017 Flourish Thinlets Dies

I made this card a while back and forgot to post it....oops.....

Calypso Coral Card Base 8 ½” x 5 ½”
Cupcakes & Carousels DSP 4” x 4 6/16”
Basic Black scrap cardstock for flourish & sprig & small flower
Flourish Thinlet Dies
Calypso Coral Scrap for large flower
Memento Black ink pad
Basic Pearls
Metal Rimmed Pearl
Dragonfly Dreams stamp set
Scrap cardboard from DSP packaging
Tombow adhesive & sponge


1.       Using scrap cardboard from DSP packaging cut a piece measuring 4” x 4”
2.       Measure up from bottom left corner 1 ½” and make a mark with pencil
3.       Measure up from bottom right corner 2 ¼” and make a mark with pencil
4.       Measure in from bottom right corner across bottom 2 ¼” and make a tick mark.
5.       Put tick marks from bottom to left in track on paper trimmer and slice off corner.
6.       Put tick marks from bottom to right side in track on paper trimmer and slice off other corner.
7.       Now you have created your template that looks like this:

8.       Trace the template onto the BACK side of your DSP and trim along lines.  KEEP THE CUTOFF PIECE.
9.       Glue DSP to card front using snail or Tombow adhesive.
10.   Stamp greeting in v shape.....use a Stamp-A-Ma- Jig if you are nervous of mis-stamping.
11.   Cut flourish, sprig and small black flower using thinlets and scrap black cardstock.
12.   Cut large flower using thinlet and scrap calypso coral cardstock.
13.   Use a glue dot to adhere the large flower temporarily to center front.  ( I rolled glue dot on my jeans to un-tack it somewhat)
14.   I cut my flourish apart and adhered to front of card- the easiest way for me to achieve this is by using silicone mat and putting a dollop of Tombow glue on it...then I take a sponge and tap glue onto the back of the flourish and flower pieces and adhere to card.
15.   Once I had all my flourishes where I wanted them I removed the large flower and glue dot.  I used the same process as above on the flower pieces to adhere them to card. 
16.   I finished off the flower with a metal rimmed self adhesive pearl.

17.   Then I added a few basic pearls to the sprigs.
