Flower Quatrefoil

Happy Thursday! The Stampendous Design Team uses Thursday's to share projects using stencils so today I'm sharing this card I made for the October catalog. The beautiful Dreamweaver Flower Quatrefoil even works with this week's Mosaic theme!

Step 1:  Fold a 4 3/4" x 12" piece of Fireflies cardstock in half to form an A6 card
Step 2: Use the Rubber Embossing Mat and die cut machine to dry emboss a 4 1/4" x 5 1/2" piece of white using the Flower Quatrefoil stencil
Step 3: With the stencil in place over the embossed design, use a 1/4" stencil brush to add yellow ink to the center of each flower, use a 1/2" brush to color the flowers with the lavender ink, trim the edge close to the design
Step 4:  Stamp the sentiment on a 2 1/8" x 3" piece of white with Memento Tuxedo Black ink
Step 5:  Tape the Small Dragonfly stencil over the sentiment with removable tape, use the lavender ink and 1/2" brush to add the image over the saying
Step 6: Adhere the saying to a 2 1/4" x 3 1/8" piece of Fireflies cardstock
Step 7:  Adhere the Flower Quatrefoil image to the card front
Step 8: Use foam tape to add the saying
Step 9:  Tie a small bow and adhere to the saying using Fabri-Tac

Happy Creating,
