This will take an hour or two to construct depending on how organized and fast you cut. It takes me less than a minute to stamp, cut and place the smallest flower so you have an idea of time. I even got the stamp pad closed in that time.
This cardstock is textured so the images are not as solid.
All flowers, leaves and ribbon images are cut out and attached with tape or tacky glue. The little file folder opens to reveal what ever message is inside and it stays closed because it tucks under the leaf on the top and the flower on the right. The lines and dots are free hand. The backside of the front panel is stamped with the small flower in pink and also has faux stitching done free hand. It may be a lot of work to some people but I find it very relaxing and always love the finished product that involves dimensional. This card will stay with me until I get more made.
Tip for attaching the small flowers: I use tacky glue – touch a long straight pin tip to the glue then touch it to the back of the flower and it’ll pick it up then can place it on the card while still on the pin.
