Betsy Bluebell Card by Sue

Hi Everyone,

Ink: Memento Tuxedo Black
Stamps: Penny Black Clear Stamp Set- Betsy Bluebell
Copics: E50, E51, E53, E55, Y02, Y06, Y08, Yg17, YG21, YG23, YG25, RV10, RV11, RV21, RV23, RV25, RV29, C1

This card is C6 size.
The grass is made using the same technique as the ‘Cherry Emma’ Card, using a mix of the YG copic markers
To make the flower, cut one of each size of the flower with the MFT die-namics die.  Using a mouse pad or foam pad, hold the centre of the 1st flower down with a stylis, bend each of the petals up with your fingers, repeat with the remaining flowers. Layer each of the flowers on top of each other with foam mounting tape in between.
To make the gorgeous scallop border. Cut 3 scallop borders, I have cut 2 of the same colour and 1 lighter. Score a line (the die will leave a faint impression, I use that to score on) on each one and bend up.  Layer together with double sided tape, lay the 1st one down, add the next one 3-4mm higher and repeat the same with the 3rd.  You will find they will flatten out as you work with them, when you have finished sticking them together and then on to the card, tweak them a little, gently bend them back into place.  Cover over the join with some ribbon, then sit back and admire!!
