Using the olive green ink, stamp the flowers
and shoes on the smooth white card
Color the flowers and three of the shoes
with the watercolor pencils. Paint over the pencil color with water.
Cut out the flowers and three shoes with a
scissors. Trim off about ¾”of the flower stems.
Wrap each piece of wire around the bamboo
skewer to form three coils. Leave about ½” of each end of the wire
Cut about ½” of tacky tape and attach it to
the back of the bottom end of one of the flower stems. Do the same
thing to the other two flower cut outs.
Adhere each flower to one of the wire coils,
folding the excess tape around the wire. Dust the taped area with
cornstarch so that it is no longer tacky.
Stick two mini pop dots together and adhere
a glue dot to one side. Place the glue dot side of the double pop dot
onto the back of one of the cut out shoes. Do the same thing to the
other two rubber stamped shoe cut outs.
Add another sticky dot to each double pop
dot on the shoes and press onto the bottom end of each wire coil so that
it appears that the flower on the coil is emerging from the shoe.
Use the scalloped rectangle punch to make a
window in the center top of the card blank.
Stamp the ‘thank you’ words just under the
punched out window on the card.
Position the shoes with flowers on the
inside of the card so that the flowers show in the window. Press the
shoes down firmly and bend the wire coils to adjust the height and angle
of the flowers.
Write the words “for the SPRING in my step”
in pencil. Trace over the words with the fine tip green pen and erase
the pencil marks.
