  • Scraps of Very Vanilla and Gold Glimmer paper for sentiment

Instructions (refer to additional photos below):
  1. Using spray bottle, and in an area that you don’t mind getting wet (I recommend the kitchen and a silicone cutting board or any surface that is easily washable), spray both sides of a sheet of watercolor paper and lay flat on silicone mat.
  2. Without letting the paper dry too much, drop a single drop of an ink refill in a few (4-5) random spots on the wet watercolor paper. If the ink pools into a single spot, lightly (and from a bit above) spritz again to allow it to flow outwards. Repeat for each color but take care to not overwater to have all the colors mixing into one. Just take one step at a time and let the magic happen. Allow to dry overnight. It should look similar to the image below when wet.
  3. While paper is drying, stamp sentiment using Mossy Meadow on Very Vanilla scrap. Cut out with Framelit. Adhere to a scrap of Gold Glimmer paper then fussy cut (by hand) a border to make a layer.
  4. Using small Very Vanilla piece, run through Big Shot with Woodgrain embossing folder.
  5. Adhere the embossed piece to the Gold Glimmer layer.
  6. Using Dimensionals, adhere that layer piece to the front of the card.
  7. When watercolor paper dry, die cut leaves wherever you feel the colors look best (see image below).
  8. Using the narrow tip of the Multipurpose Liquid Glue dot or streak the very edges of a leaf then shake on gold glitter. Gently shake off excess and allow to dry. Repeat with all leaves (you only need 3 for this card but you may want to just prep the extras while you’re all glittery).
  9. Choose your favorite 3 leaves and fan them out with their stems overlapping. Tie ribbons around to hold together. Trim excess.
  10. Put 1 dimensional onto the back of each leaf, fan out and adhere to front of card.
  11. Using Multipurpose Liquid Glue, adhere sentiment to stem of leaves just above ribbon.
