Classy Cards products used

other products used
   various ribbons
   Memory Box die - Bella Bouquet
   embossing folder with small design
   flat portions from egg carton for 3-d
   Perfect Layers rulers
   white card base
   green card stock
   white card stock

1. Emboss the lower 1/3 of 4 x 5.25 inch piece of white card stock.
2. Place ribbon over divide between plain and embossed.
3. Attach white embossed piece to green card stock.
4. Trim green to narrow border.
5. On the back of the green/white piece attach flat pieces of paper egg carton
    to create a 3-d look.
6. Cut two floral stems, one from white and one from green.
7. Using Twinkling H20’s paint the flowers on both stems.  You will notice
    the paint on the green is several shades darker than that on the white.
8. One the white stem, cut off the flowers.
9. Matching the white painted flowers to the green flowers that are still
    attached to the stems, offset the loose flowers ever so slightly.  You want
    a narrow “shadow” to show underneath the white painted flowers.
10. Glue stem to card front.  I use a white glue and a toothpick to carefully
      place glue on the back of the stem die.
11.  Use the Bow Easy to make a perfect bow to place on the stem.  Position
       as shown on picture.
12. Using the Cheery Lynn Designs small exotic butterfly die cut with a
      metallic paper, cut a butterfly and if desired cut an Angle Wings liner
      for the butterfly.
13.  Place butterfly on stem. 
Memory Box and Spellbinders dies on the Classy Cards N Such website have many dies that will work wonderfully for this particular design.

Using Scrap Ribbon

 Hate to toss those short pieces of ribbon that
are left over after making bows?
Well how about using them on a card front.
Make your bows with the Bow Easy tool.
I love it because it is so easy to get both loops]
perfectly even.
You can find the Bow Easy at Classy Cards N Such.
Here is a very good picture tutorial on the use of the Bow Easy.

With Sympathy

A very simple card.
The lacy border is from an EK Success punch.
DCWV made the stack that the DP came from.
A Fancy Tag by Spellbinders frames the phrase.
Some pearls were added for a touch of elegance.

I have a pdf file available using this phrase.
It is ready to print using two columns.
Please click here and it should be available to you.
I would like some feedback on this as I can 
use Word documents or pdf files.
