    • AC Cardstock - Lemon     ( AMC-CSP-71039   $0.50), cut to 4" x 4"
  • Embellishments
  • Ranger Distress Inks in Walnut Stain and Black Soot http://www.franticstamper.com/distress.htm (5.00 ea)
  • Tim Holtz Ink Blending Tool     ( RAN-TIM-Blend   $4.99)
  • Non Stick Craft Sheet     ( suz-crftsht-sm   $8.99)
  • Mini glue dots     ( GLUE-Mini   $3.99)
  • Inkadinkado Dot Flourishes     ( INK-CS-97634   $9.99)
  • prima flowers     ( of your choice )


  • Fold the dark green cardstock in half to make the base for your card. The final measurement should be 6" x 6".
  • Stamp a flourish image on your yellow 4x4 cardstock using black soot. I decided to stamp my image from corner to corner.

    NOTE: There is also a set called Gemstone Flourishes ( INK-CS-98977   $9.99) which is equally gorgeous and could be used for this technique.

  • Using an ink blending tool and a craft mat, blend walnut stain on the edges of the yellow card stock.

  • Attach your pale green cardstock and your beige handmade paper together.

  • Attach your yellow cardstock (with the points of the yellow cardstock pointing up and down) with eyelets in green.

  • For the flowers I chose peach (larger) and lavender (smaller) four petal flowers from Prima. I attached them to each other using a gem brad.
  • Attach your flowers to the card by using a gem brad before you glue your cardstock pieces to your card base.
  • Add rhinestones to the flourishes.

  • I added green rhinestones at the bottom so that it looked like leaves.
  • I added clear rhinestones at the top to resemble flowers.
  • You’re done!

I did another card with different colors so that you could see another way to do the card. This card is so easy to make and is really stunning too! I hope that you will try it out!
