Hello everyone, sharing my 3rd and final project created for the DT call. This is a triple layer step card using the Oakberry lane collection from Heartfelt Creations. I loved creating this project as it has lovely colors combined together beautifully.
The white card base measures 6 ½’’x18’’, scored at 4’’, 8’’, 11’’, 14’’, 16’’ and folded into mountain-valley folds. Cut mat layers for each side measuring ¼’’ smaller than the card base sides using designer paper. Distress the edges of each of the papers using a paper distress tool, shade with Peeled pain distress oxide ink and adhere to each of the sides.
Create die-cut pieces from white card stock – 4 from Decorative pocket accents dies, 1 each of largest and smallest Rounded window frames die and 1 from the Sweetheart border die. Cut the second largest Rounded window frame using Gold metallic cardstock along with a circle die-cut mat layer using a designer paper. Shade all the die-cut pieces using Peeled paint oxide ink. Take the Sweetheart borders die-cut, cut into half and adhere on either edges of the last fold, gluing only 1/4th part. Similarly, adhere the 4 die-cut pieces from Decorative pocket accents half-way over the first and the second folds. Finally, take the Rounded window frames die-cuts along with the mat layer, stack them in order and adhere half-way over to the center of the last fold.
Die-cut the decorative piece from Album tags and accents using white cardstock and the mat layer using metallic gold card stock. Stamp a sentiment on the white die-cut piece using Versa-mark embossing ink and sprinkle some gold embossing powder and heat-set it. Shade the sentiment pieces with Peeled paint oxide ink, arrange both the layers and adhere it half-way over the Round window frames die-cut piece. Similarly take another sentiment from the designer paper and add a mat layer with white card stock, shade the edges using the green ink and adhere them on the front fold towards one side. Die-cut the medium sized tag from Ornamental tags set with two designer papers, shade them with the green ink and stamp a sentiment on one of the piece. Arrange these die-cuts with the stamped piece on top and adhere to the second fold of the card base towards one side.
Stamp the large one-sided butterfly from the Fluttering Butterfly set with Versamark ink and heat emboss it with gold embossing powder. Color the butterfly using Squeezed lemonade distress ink, Shaded lilac distress ink, Cactus flower and Sunflower archival inks. Cut the image using the coordinating dies and adhere it to the front fold using dimensional foam tape.
For the flowers – stamp the flowers from Oakberry lane on floral paper using French ultramarine archival ink, color those with forget-me-not, Cactus flower archival inks and cut out them using the coordinating dies. To shape the flowers, dip them in a bowl of water, remove the excess water with a soft towel and emboss with the groove golf tools. Once dried, shade the flowers again with a layer of Aquamarine archival ink, stack and glue them with yellow wire pollen in the center. For the filler flowers, cut some flowers from the smallest of the Floral Fashionista dies on floral paper, shade few of them with Sunflower archival ink and the rest be left as white. Mist them with water and shape with groove golf tools and leave them for drying. Once dried add desired pollens and tie them into small floral sprays.
For the leaves – stamp some leaves from the Oakberry lane set with Fern green archival ink on floral paper, shade the edges using Buttercup archival ink and cut them out using the coordinating dies. Shape the leaves my misting water and embossing with groove tools.
Once the flowers and leaves are all set, arrange it accordingly on all the three folds of the card base and glue them. Sprinkle some Crystal clear powder on them using glue with wet sponge. Finish off the card by adding clear water droplets using yellow colored Nuvo drops randomly around the card base.
