Take an 8 1/2"/ 12" Black Cardstock
Fold it into half.
Again fold the front panel into half. This will work like an easel when supported by base stopper of the lower card panel.
Take another Black Cardstock measuring 8 1/2" / 6" Cut halfway till the centre fold line with your Diecutting Machine using Eyelet Oval die. Cut the centre sides. This will give you two cutouts,one with the half Eyelet Oval diecut and another one with an arched rectangular.
Score the lines on the arched Rectangle using Scoring Board. Rub the Gold Sand Paste over it to give it a copperlike rough metallic finish. Adhere it to the lower base of the Eyelet Oval die cut panel,aligning it properly to form an oval in the centre.
Adhere the Golden Lace on the centre fold line.
Diecut an Eyelet Oval again on a White Cardstock.
Diecut a White Cardstock using Spellbinder's Crisscross dies. Again place the Eyelet's Oval Die's Plain Oval die ,place over the crisscross cutout and run through the die cutting machine. This will give an oval crisscross cutout. Adhere it to the Eyelet Oval Diecut.
Cut one more cardstock with Eyelet Oval and create a hollow oval in it by running it through the die cutting machine using the plain oval die. This forms as an outer border frame. Adhere it to the Eyelet Oval Cutout. This shows as a very neat frame with crisscross cutout having proper frame.
Stamp and heat emboss the Enchanted Dragonflies Stamps on a white cardstock with Princess Gold embossing powder and die cut with the co ordinating dies. Adhere it in the centre of the Eyelet Oval Crisscross Frame.
Now Adhere this complete panel on the lower half of folded card base.
Arrange and Adhere the flowers and leaves over the Oval frame.
To make the flowers here is the procedure:
Stamp Tropical Hibiscus and Sunrise Lily Swirls with Versamark on a handmade paper with little golden sparkle on it. Heat Emboss with Black Sparkle embossing powder. Color up with Lindy's Sprays with shades of pinks and reds. Cut out with co ordinating dies. Shape it up by using Deluxes Shaping Flower Kit.
To prepare the lower panel of card base, cut a Black Cardstock measuring 4 1/4" / 8 1/2 ".
Using Scoring Board,score vertical lines to create a corrugated look. Rub on the Gold Sand Texture paste over it.Adhere it on the lower base. The upper edge of this panel will support as a stopper for making the front card panel stand up.
Diecut the Cardstock with Decorative Lattice Swirl dies.Rub on the Gold Sand Paste over these. Adhere them on the card base on right and left sides.
Diecut a cardstock and a foam sheet with Timeless Amour dies. Adhere paper diecut over the foam sheet diecut and glue it in the centre of the lower card base.
Glue down the flowers and the 'Thinking of You' stamped n diecut banner.
