A mist of Gold Sheer Shimmer Spritz accents the Gentle Rose Watercolor Floral and defines the details of the beautiful blossom.  The rose and Wayfarer Leaves match the cluster of flowers on the bottom left corner of the Garland 6x6 and create a birthday greeting for someone special.  Hi, Jean here sharing a quick technique that's perfect for Memory Box's layered floral die sets. 

Cut the solid Gentle Rose Watercolor Floral background from a medium-toned red/coral sheet Berry Red 6x6.  Spritz a slightly lighter 6x6 with a fine mist of Imagine's Gold Sheer Shimmer Spritz - prop the cardstock up vertically,  shake the bottle vigorously and spritz!   Costco boxes with the cutouts are great spraybooths.  Dry the shimmery ink, then cut the cardstock with the layering pieces.  The illustration on the envelope - and the lightly-marked guidelines on the diecut - make it quick and easy to assemble the rose.

Cut Wayfarer Leaves with a medium green from the Lush Green 6x6 pack - attach doublestick tape strips behind the leaves to keep the center offcuts in the leaves.  Remove the lowest leaf from the large diecut.  Cut the lowest leaf from the smaller diecut and reposition it between the other two leaves.

Cut the Garland 6x6 print with a portion of the 7-½" x 2-½" Slim Basic Rectangle Layers die.  That's a lot easier than measuring and cutting it - and hoping it's not wonky!  

Glue two pieces of smooth white cardstock together and diecut the Happy Birthday Tender Script background.  Pressure-emboss the backgrounds with the detailed top layer of the greeting using the rubber embossing mat and plate(s) required for your machine.  Embossing the greeting background makes it a lot easier to attach the top layer.

Cut the top layer from the peach Vintage Pastel Mirror Pad 6x6.  Assemble the greeting.

Attach the diecuts to a white slimline card (3-⅝" x 8-½") - attach the rose with foamtape.  Add amber Autumn Fairy Crystals.  Cut a slimline-sized rectangle of cardstock to protect the card front for mailing.

The combination of Memory Box 6x6 color collections and Sheer Shimmer Spritz creates great layering and accent artpapers.   Add a beautiful luster without warping the sturdy 110 lb. cardstock.  A quick spritz is all you need!

Thanks for visiting...have a great weekend!
