Instructions:

  1. Cut an A4 BB card in half long ways so that you end up with two long skinny pieces of card. Use one of these as the base for your card and fold in half.
  2. For the top awning, take a piece of BB card measuring 4¼” x 2” and score at ½” and 1⅜”. Scallop the edge nearest the 1⅜” fold line. Tip: Line up the scallop edge perfectly with a full scallop pattern on your punch guide to ensure you have no half scallop left at the end. Fold into valley fold at the ½” fold and into mountain fold at the 1⅜” fold line.
  3. Punch out another scalloped edge from a piece of 4 ¼” x 1 ¼” WW card and attach it just underneath the BB scalloped edge so that a small piece of white shows through underneath. (The card I did, that is posted on this website used small pieces of the doily triple layer punch but it was very fiddly to do). Score from the groove of each scallop up to the ½” score line. Set aside.
  4. To make bottom of the shop, take a piece of BB card measuring 4¼” x 3⅛”. Score it at 2½”. Put through the big shot with the elegant lines embossing folder. Set aside.
  5. Take a piece of WW card measuring 4⅛” x 5” and adhere to the front of your main BB card base, lining it up with the top fold line. Adhere the embossed BB of card on next; this is lined up with the bottom of the card.
  6. Stamp the 25 Dec stamp in Bbl ink on white card and punch out with the decorative label punch. Stamp the word ‘cherish’ in BB ink on white card and punch out with the oval punch. Dauber edges in EE ink. Mat to centre of decorative label punched piece. Add two BB circles punched from crop-o-dile at either side if desired. Attach to bottom of card using dimensionals.
  7. Adhere BB top awning to top of card.
  8. Adhere perfume bottles to finish.

Instructions for Bottles:

Skinny Bottle – Stamp star ornament from delightful decorations in Bbl ink. Then using the rock and roll technique, ink edges of stamp in EE ink and stamp onto Bbl card. Punch out using oval punch, with the star pattern in the centre. Cut away unwanted Bbl card using the stamped image as a guide.  Use the small itty bitty circle punch to make a top for the bottle. Punch out of a left over piece of cardstock that has the EE ink on it. Once the bottle is adhered to the main card, put a rhinestone in the centre.

Round Bottle – Run a piece of Bbl card through the big shot with the vintage wallpaper embossing folder. (Stamp small patterned stamps from delightful decorations stamp set first if desired). Punch out an ornament shape and cut the bottom pointed piece off. Punch a ½” circle for the bottle lid. Dauber the bottle and lid in EE ink. Tie a small piece of silver thread around the neck of the bottle. Stamp ‘Paris’ circle stamp from French foliage stamp set in BB ink on WW card. Punch out using ½” punch and attach to front of bottle.

Triangular Bottle - Stamp ornament from Contempo Christmas stamp set in EE ink onto WW card. Hand cut close to the stamped image. Cut angled sides using the dots on the image as a guide. On left side cut from just outside the top dot to just outside the second bottom dot. Do the same on the right hand side. Cut the bottom flat across. Use glue pen and glitter to add sparkle across the top of the bottle. Cut one petal from the 5 petal flower punched shape in EE card to make lid for bottle. Draw lines with a gel pen.
