In this tutorial the name Seal is referring to the use of the Stampin' Seal Adhesive
  • Cut a piece of Soft Suede 11" by 4¼” (Score at 5½”).
  • Cut down the scoreline 2".
  • Rotate 90 and cut off that 2" piece to form the cardbase.
  • Cut a piece of Basic White 5¼” x 4" and 5¼” x 2⅛"
  • Place your Basic White 5¼” x 4" in the Stamparatus in the lower left corner.
  • Place the tree stamp on the Basic White piece near the left edge centered from top to bottom, then close the plate to pick up the stamp.
  • Ink the stamp with Memento Black ink, then stamp the image, apply a little extra pressure, being so close to the edge.  If necessary ink and stamp again.
  • Now place the 5¼” x 2⅛"piece in the Stamparatus again in the lower left corner.
  • Again stamp the image, this time it is just stamping the lower part of the tree.  By using the Stamparatus, the image should match when closed.
  • Using the Memento Black ink, stamp the grass pads for the two hedgehogs with the small grass stamp and color using the Granny Apple Green Stampin' Blends.
  • Color both tree pieces using the the following Stampin' Blends; Light Polished Pink for the flowers, Dark Granny Apple Green for the leaves & grass and Light Soft Suede for the tree and branches.  Then I used my Glitter pen in the center of all the flowers.
  • Using some scrap pieces of Basic White, stamp the bird, the butterfly, small hedgehogs, 2 large hedgehogs and 2 mushrooms using Memento Black Ink.
    Using the Stampin' Blends, color as follows:

    - Light Polished Pink, Light and Dark Balmy Blue, Light So Saffron, Light Pumpkin Pie and my Glitter Pen, then fuzzy cut.
    Butterfly - Light Polished Pink, Dark So Saffron and my Glitter Pen, then fuzzy cut.
    Mushrooms - Light Polished Pink, Light Soft Suede, Dark Granny Apple Green and my Glitter Pen, then fuzzy cut.
    - Light Soft Suede, Ivory and my glitter pen, then I punched the large Hedgehog, the other large hedgehog hair only with the Hedgehog Builder punch and fuzzy cut the small hedgehog.

  • On the 5¼” x 4" piece, using Memento Black Ink, stamp the hedgehog, grass and two mushrooms. 
  • Color as above, but this time I used I used Ivory to color the Mushroom stems.

  • Lay you Soft Suede Cardbase open with the small tab on the left.
  • Seal the 5¼” x 4" basic white piece to the right panel. 
  • Close the small tab. 
  • Seal the 5¼” x 2⅛" to the top of the tab lining the tree so it looks like a sheet of 5¼” x 4".
  • Using Polished Pink Ink, stamp the greeting centered on the inside 5¼” x 4" piece. 
  • Now we are ready to assemble the front panel of the card. 
  • Add Dimensionals on all the punch and cut out remaining pieces and adhere to the front panel. 
  • To put the final touches on the card, add three 2021-2026 In Color Jewels to the card.
