Welcome to eclectic Paperie's Belated Birthday Bash!  Today we're celebrating the (belated) one year anniversary of the store's new ownership! It's been an amazing year, full of inspiring projects, wonderful classes, and many, many new products!!  eclectic Paperie wouldn't be where it is today without the ongoing support of our customers and as a BIG thank you you'll have an opportunity to lots of great prizes! 
 
 Let me show you the project I have created for you today. This is a 5.5" x 3.5" card.

Instructions:
  • Make card base from Ivory cardstock.
  • Cut a panel from Warm Cocoa CS (3.25" x 5.25"). Apply gesso, set to dry. Add a coat of Banana and Acqua Dolce Gelatos (that is the green-ish color on the BG). Then, add Pool and Snow Cap Acrylic paint, set aside to let it dry.
  • Flower: Die-cut (or hand cut) circles and 1 scallop circle, paint pieces with Red Pepper Acrylic paint. Set aside to dry (or use your heat gun to speed the drying process). Ink and distress all edges with Walnut Stain Distress Ink. Mount all pieces together with hot glue, add a blue button.
  • Hand cut leave shapes from Cardstock, paint them with Moss Green Paint. Fold them and add them to flower. Add flower to panel.
  • Create a bow from Ocean Twine and add it to panel, insert a Trinket pin.
  • Add Gold Paint to wooden tag, set aside to dry, then add sentiment. (Here I used my handwriting).
  • Add tag to panel.
  • Add pearls to corner.
  • Distress all edges of panel and adhere it to card base. I used 1/2" Scor-tape.
