Teacup Flowers : Blossom & Flourish

Today’s handmade easel card has been created for the new challenge at I Love Promarkers Blog Challenge #388 that starts today.
I have used a digi image from Bugaboo Stamps called Teacup Flowers 1.

The optional theme for this challenge is one for the girls, but you must use either promarkers, flexmarkers, aquamarkers or trias on your work.

Promarkers
White Card
Silver Mirri Card
Black Card

Silver Pearl
Wet Glue / Double Sided Tape
Foam Pads

Instructions:

Firstly score and fold the front of the card base in half.
This is to make an easel shape card for this design.

Next Print the Teacup Flowers 1 digi image three times.
Cut one digi image to measure 14 cms by 13 cms and colour the bottom left flower and cup.
Then colour the other four flowers on the second digi image and cut out.
Attach them to the first digi image using foam pads.
On the third digi image colour three flowers and cut out.
Put them to one side to use later on.

The promarkers used were :

Cup: Arctic blue
Flower Petals: Lipstick, cerise, amethyst, gold, pumpkin.
Flower Centre: Lemon, buttercup.
Leaves: Meadow green, apple.
Bees: Black, buttercup.

From the dvd-rom choose and print out two papers.

Cut a square from silver mirri card measuring 19 cms by 19 cms.
Cut a square from one of the papers measuring 18.5 cms by 18.5 cms.
Matt and layer together and attach to the bottom of the card base.

Cut a piece from silver mirri card measuring 9 cms by 19 cms.
Cut a piece from the second paper measuring 8.5 cms by 18.5 cms.
Matt and layer together and add a piece of blue ribbon across the centre.
Attach to the front fold of the card base.

Next cut a piece from white card measuring 15.5 cms by 15.5 cms.
Cut a piece from one of the papers measuring 15 cms by 15 cms.
Then cut a piece from silver mirri card measuring 14.5 cms by 13.5 cms.
Matt and layer together and add the digi topper.
Attach to the front fold of the card base on the right at a slight angle.

Make a bow up and attach to the left side of the digi topper.
Add a silver pearl to the centre of the bow.

Cut a piece of white card measuring 7 cms by 11 cms.
Cut a piece of silver mirri measuring 6.5 cms by 10.5 cms.
Then cut a piece of white card measuring 6 cms by 10 cms.
Matt and layer together and attach to the bottom of the card base using foam pads.
This will make a stopper for the front fold and a place to write a message.

Next using the bee die set make two bees.
Cut the matt layer out in black card.
Cut the wing layer and bee body out in white card.
Colour the top bee body using a black promarker and attach to the wing layer.
Using the buttercup promarker highlight the stripes on the bee’s bodies.
Add these layers to the black matt layer.
Attach one bee to digi topper and one to the right bottom corner of the stopper.

Add the three digi flowers to the right bottom corner of the stopper, slightly overlapping the bee.

To finish add a sentiment.
Cut the matt layer out in one of the papers and the sentiment out in white card.
Matt and layer together and attach to the bottom of the stopper.
