Four Seasons Card using the Quarterette Dies

This card, using the new quarterette panoramic dies from Clarity was fun to make and looks effective.  It was also prominently displayed during all the shows on Hochanda which I am rather proud of.
Cut a square from the front of a 7” x 7” black card blank using the fourth largest nested picot square die. Lay the four mini panorama aperture dies evenly within the square and die cut.
Cut an additional square using a nested picot square die one size larger out of stencil card. Add Twisted Citron, Mowed Lawn, Mermaid Lagoon, Carved Pumpkin, Tumbled Glass and Iced Spruce Oxides to a blending mat, mist with water and press the card face down in the ink. Dry thoroughly.
Add a little Mustard Seed Oxide to the Twisted Citron and Fired Brick Oxide to the Carved Pumpkin, mist and repeat.
With the sonnet script stamp from the mixed media journal set held in the hand, stamp over each area in Sunflower, Forget-Me-Not, Carnation Red and Watering Can mini archival inks.
Glue the die cut panel centrally over the background.
Lay the panel onto the front of a 7” x 7” black card blank and mark the corners lightly in pencil. Using stamps from the Treescape & Seasons set add ‘Spring’ in Versamark ink and heat emboss in silver embossing powder. Add ‘Summer’ in Gold embossing powder, ‘Autumn’ in Copper embossing powder and ‘Winter’ in Ice Blue embossing enamel.
Add the panel to the centre of the card.
To finish, add one of Barbara’s Word sentiments.
