Lilac New Year card

For this card I used ‘A Touch of … Winter’ stamp set (ref: 0701086a). All the flower stamps are now available on their own and this particular stamp called ‘A Touch of … Violet (February) ref: 0701083a. 

How to make:
Randomly stamp "Happy New Year" onto a 16cm x 9.5cm piece of lilac card in memento grape jelly, distress around the edges with dusty concord, mount onto a 16.5cm x 10 cm piece of dark green.

Next stamp a background using the ‘Time Flourish’ stamp (ref: 0605039a) onto a 19cm x 19cm piece of lilac card using grape jelly distress as above, mount onto a 19.5cm x 19.5cm piece of dark green card.

Attach the "Happy New Year" card 1.5cm up from the bottom of the piece of card.

Attach two pieces of narrow lilac chiffon ribbon to the left hand side of the card about 3cm in from the side, and then tie a piece of ribbon to each piece.

Then attach to a 20cm x 20cm kraft card.

Stamp the violet three times onto white card in memento tuxedo black, colour  in one with the leaves. Then on the other two colour the flowers only. Cut out the whole of the one with the coloured leaves, then on the next two just the flower heads, shape all the pieces starting with the full flower head and leaves attach to the right hand side of the happy new year card with 3D glue and decoupage all the flower heads.
