In this tutorial the name Seal is referring to the use of the Stampin' Seal Adhesive.
  • Cut a piece of Basic White 11" x 4¼”
  • Cut a slit from 2" to 6½" along the 11" side, turn over and repeat on the back side.
  • Using the picture below, score as directed on the 1", 2", 5½" and 6½
  • Fold ONLY the score lines as follows - 1" Mountain Fold, 2" Valley Fold, 5½" Mountain Fold and 6½" Mountain Fold.
  • Cut 2 pieces of Flirty Flamingo 4½" x 1".
  • Cut 2 pieces of Basic White 6½" x 1½" and using the long Irresistible Blooms die, run them thru the Stampin' Cut and Emboss Machine.
  • Carefully add Stampin' Seal lightly to the back of the 2 die pieces and holding the ends, center and lay over the Flirty Flamingo CS.
  • Use you finger and slide over the die piece to remove any remaining adhesive.
  • Trim the excess piece off both ends.
  • Adhere the 2 pieces between the valley and mountain folds along each side.
  • Cut a piece of Flirty Flamingo 4" x ¾".
  • Cut a 5" piece of ribbon and seal the end pieces on the back.
  • The tiny bow was made using a fork. Add a glue dot and add over the wrapped ribbon then adhere across the bottom of the card.
  • Using Memento Black Ink and Basic White CS, stamp and die cut the 2 flowers.
  • Color the flowers with the Dark Flirty Flamingo Stampin' Blends.
  • Color the flower centers with the Dark Mango Melody.
  • Using Soft Succulent Ink and Soft Succulent CS, stamp and die cut the leaf pieces.
  • Add a dimensional to the back of each flower and adhere to the center piece.
  • Add a dimensional to the from edge of the leaves and tuck under the flowers.
  • Using Evening Evergreen Ink, stamp your greeting near the top of the card.
  • To add the final touches I used the Loose Frosted Dots on the center of the flowers in addition to the normal 3 on the front.  This was a little tricky because there is no adhesive on the back of the dots so I put a drop of multipurpose liquid glue on my Silicone Craft Sheet then used a tooth pick to apply glue. Now enjoy your finished card!
