How to do it

Step 1

To make the hills, draw an arc with the dimensions of appr. 3¼" x 1¾". (fig. 1 & 2) Make sure the hills are cut from paper with a square corner so it will line up with the corner of the card front. Make two hills and glue them to the card front as shown in the photo above.

Step 2

To make the sun, use a spray paint can bottom to cut around with the craft knife. As above, make sure the sun is cut from card stock with a square corner so it lines up with the corner of the card front. Glue it to the card front as shown in the photo at the top of this page. (fig. 3)

Step 3

Punch out three flowers from white card stock. Using the green embossing marker, color the stem and leaves of a flower punch out. While holding the flower with tweezers, apply the clear embossing powder (if you need, go to this heat embossing how-to) and heat. Repeat for flowers 2 and 3. (fig. 4)

Step 4

Using the yellow embossing marker, color the blossom of the flower. While holding the flower with tweezers, apply the clear embossing powder (if you need, go to this heat embossing how-to) and heat. Repeat for flowers 2 and 3. (fig. 5) Glue the flowers to the hills as shown in the photo at the top of this page.

Step 5

Using the yellow embossing marker, draw squiggly sun rays. Apply the clear embossing powder and heat (you may want to do the rays two at a time so the ink does not dry before you can apply the powder). Using the clear marker, draw some dreamy birds in the sky. Apply the white embossing powder and heat.
