Flower Card by Sue

Hi Everyone,
Our DT Gal Sue has created a very pretty flower card to share today. She has even created her own Designer Paper using her Copics.
I hope you enjoy it.

Products Used:
Stamps: Hero Arts Clear - Birthday Sayings, Layered Flowers and Envelope Pattern
Cardstock: Taffy, White, Apricot Cardstock & Xpress-it Blending Cardstock
Ink: Memento -  Tuxedo Black, Versafine- Onyx Black, Versamark
Copics: G21, G24, YR16, RV09
Accessories: Die-namics Flower Border Die and Rolled Rose Die (MFT),  Rhinestones (coloured with Copic RV09), Stickles - Crystal, Clear embossing powder, Corner Chomper.

For this card, Sue has made her own Designer paper.... a really simple technique but lots of fun and a fabulous effect, you will never be without the perfect DS Paper again.  The key is to clean your ruler with hand sanitiser between each colour change, this will save your marker tips from becoming stained.
Cut a piece of Blending cardstock 105mm x 150mm
Place the cardstock in a portrait orientation,  on top of some scrap paper. Take your ruler and your 1st copic marker, using the chisel end of the marker, draw a line on the edge of the long side of the cardstock.  Clean your ruler with a tissue and hand sanitiser, move the ruler about 6 or 7mm (this can vary depending on the amount of white you desire between each stripe) from the 1st line drawn, and then draw another line with a different colour copic marker, repeat this step with the desired number of colours until the entire cardstock is coloured.
Take a scrap of blending cardstock, large enough for 2 of the leaves, using the same technique as above, rule lines using the green markers alternately.
Stamp the larger flower image onto the Copic DS paper and the Apricot cardstock.  Cut on the outer line of the apricot flower and the inner line on the Copic DS paper.  Stamp with the Envelope Pattern stamp using Versamark ink, and then clear emboss.  Layer the coloured flower onto the Apricot flower with foam tape.
Stamp the leaves onto the green striped Copic DS paper, trim.  Cover each leaf with Versamark ink, then clear embossing powder and heat.
From the remaining colourful Copic DS paper cut a piece, 75mm x 105mm, clear emboss the same as the flowers.
Cut a border of flowers from white cardstock.
Cut Taffy cardstock 30mm x 105mm
Colour 12 Rhinestones with RV09 Copic marker.
Using the rolled rose die, cut out a rose, roll up and secure with a foam dot.
Assemble the card as pictured, stamp the greeting with the Versafine ink and round one corner. 
Finish off the rose with a little stickles on the edges of the petal.
The possibilities are endless with this technique!
