Slimline Hugs and Flowers by Jean Okimoto


Send special hugs with sunny yellow blossoms layered over a leafy slimline collage from Poppystamps. Hi, Jean Okimoto here with a  spring-into-summer design for any occasion.

Cut white cardstock to 8-½" x 4-¼".  Cut it with the Poppystamps Slim Leafy Collage - about 1-¼" from the left edge.  Score and crease it the cardstock vertically at ¾" to create a hinge.  Attach it to an 8-½" x 3-½" piece of green cardstock - for a leafy green background.

Cut Layered Cosmos twice from a medium-yellow 6x6 in the Sunny Orange Collection. Cut Layered Fresh Flowers from pale yellow and mustard yellow 6x6's.  Assemble the flowers - mix and match the centers.

Cut white cardstock with the 6-⅛" x 1-⅛" Slim Basic Rectangle Layers die.  Attach the flowers to the rectangle.  Attach the rectangle to the card - don't use any adhesivebehind the flowers on the left side because it will be visible from inside the card.

Stamp the greeting - from the Big and Little Words Clear Stamp Set - on white cardstock with Verdant Versa Fine Clair.  Quickly heat-emboss it with detail clear powder.  Trim the cooled cardstock with the greeting strip die that's included ion the stamp set.

Attach the greeting to the background rectangle with foam tape.  Add the pale yellow Pastel Fairy Jewels.
