Instructions: Card size is 4 x 6". Take 8 1/2 x 6" white cardstock, score and fold at 4 1/4". Using Regal Frame & Accents outline, die cut card base, being careful not to cut off fold. Choose paper from the Sugarspun paper collection and cut using Regal Frame & Accents Die. Arrange on card, adhering each layer using 3D foam tape. Stamp Birthday sentiment using Ranger Archival Ink Pad - Jet Black on the white paper using Special Birthday Sentiments Cling Stamp Set.

To create flowers, stamp the Oakberry Lane Blossoms cling stamp set onto Deluxe Flower Shaping Paper with Ranger Archival Ink Pad - Deep Purple and die cut using the coordinating dies. Colour with Ranger Archival Ink Pad - Deep Purple and shape using the Blossoms shaping mold. You will need two petals for each flower to create flowers. Layer the petals together using the hot glue gun making sure to offset them. Use a paper piercer to make a hole in the middle and pull the stamens through. Add a little hot glue to the underside of the flower to adhere and add prills to the flower centers along with the stamen. 

Stamp the leaves using Oakberry Lane Cling Stamp set onto the white cardstock with Archival Ink Pad - Leaf Green, die cut with the coordinating die. Shade using this same ink and shape the leaves using the Blossoms Shaping Mold.  

Arrange flowers and leaves on card as shown. Sponge the petals with dries clear adhesive and sprinkle with Rajni's Crystal Clear glitter.
