For more tips on creating with the flower shaping molds, watch the tutorial at https://youtu.be/FSdPL7nXvQE.

Instructions: The finished size of this square tent fold card is 6.299" x 6.299" (16 cm x 16 cm) To make the flowers: Taking the design paper scraps from the collection use the classic rose stamp and die set to make the rose petals. Use the distress inks to bring color to the leaves, rose petal tips and centers. Spray the petals and leaves with the water mister, place in the rose mold then put the mold through the die cutting machine twice to get a good press. (Do not make the paper or card-stock too wet as the paper will break in the mold when you put it through the die cutting machine. If you do make it too wet, leave to dry until they are just moist just as you would when balling to bring shape to the petals with the tools.) For the blue / green colored flowers, these are sprayed with the Lindy's stamp gang sprays-Grab a Guy Gold, Hydrangea Blue, Ponderosa Pines Olive Spray, also the cut away inner part of the eyelet frame that was put aside. Leave to dry a little, as the petals will still be too wet. When ready put these through the machine in the rose mold. Take the petals out of the molds with the aid of the piercer tool found in the flower shaping tool kit. Leave the shaped petals to dry completely. When dry, shape the centers so the petals cup up. Prick a hole in the petal center so you can thread the stamens through the opening. The stamen colors used are the pink and the green found in the bright pearl assortment bundle. Take three stamens, fold in half then thread the stems through the hole. Secure at the back with the hot glue gun. When the glue is cooled off, trim the excess stems away.

To make the card base: Taking the white cardstock, cut the card base to 6.299" x 6.299" (16 cm x 16 cm) x2. In one of the cards make a 0.59" (1.5 cm) fold in the top, add double sided tape to the fold. Placing both pieces together this will form the tent fold card base. Taking the orange card-stock cut matting (15 cm x 15 cm) And (14.5 cm x 14.5 cm). Find from the paper collection the design paper used and cut this a little smaller than the card-stock mattings. Adhere together the matting and matching design paper using double sided tape or clear drying glue. Stamp the sentiment with VersaMark, sprinkle with gold embossing powder and heat set with the heat tool. Adhere the two layers together using the 3d foam tape or dots. Adhere to the card front.

Using the above inks, stamp, diecut and color the Butterfly Dreams Border 2 times. Fussy cut the butterflies from the second one, color and shape them using the Deluxe Flower Shaping Kit and adhere to the first diecut to give the butterflies dimension. Using the Fleur Border Basics plain dies, cut out the Butterfly Border. From orange cardstock, cut two borders from the Elegant Border Basics dies and adhere to the Butterfly Dreams border. Adhere the border, flowers and leaves to the card base as shown.

Add stickles to the flowers, leaves, butterflies and borders. Using a sponge and dries clear glue, add Rajni Chawla's Crystal Clear to the butterflies.

Instructions: Click here to see more photos of this project. The Gift of Love Box Die is used to create this Mini Booklet. First use the Gift Box Base Die to cut the Sweet Peony design paper. Cut off all the tabs on the edges. Lay the straight edge of the base die cut on the Scor-Pal at 0" and score it 1 1/4" and 4 1/2". This creates the base of your Mini Booklet.

Continue to use the Gift Box Base Die to cut 8 more from the design paper. On each one cut off the curved end and the 1 1/2" straight end so that you are left with the 2 1/2" x 2 1/2" square, including the tab on one end. Sponge edges of papers, as desired. Adhere the wrong sides together so that you are left with 4 pages remaining to insert in the base. Using the Scor-Tool reinforce the score lines on the tabs and adhere tabs to base so that each page flips out from each side of the booklet.

Using the Decorative Solid Panel Die from the Gift of Love Box Die, die cut 8 images from the design paper. Sponge edges of design paper as desired and adhere to each side of pages, making sure they are aligned how you want them on your booklet depending on which way the booklet will be used.

To decorate one page use circle dies from the HCD1-7154 Eyelet Circle & Basics Small Die HCD1-7155 Circle Basics Large Die to matte the image and then adhere the "Thank You" die cut sentiment from the Butterfly Kisses Decorative Die Set.

Cut a 1 3/4" x 2 1/2" piece of design paper and adhere it behind the front flap to completely cover your pages.

Using the piercing tool from the Heartfelt Creations Deluxe Flower Shaping Kit create a hole to insert the brad and one to insert the raffia. Using the Luggage and Tags Die, die cut a hole reinforcement and adhere it to the hole that will be used for the raffia. Hot glue the back of the brad in place, making sure to allow some room under the brad so that the raffia can be wrapped around it. Insert Raffia into the other hole and tie a knot on the back. Trim off excess raffia. Attach self-adhesive Velcro, cutting to fit as necessary, on flap to help secure booklet if needed.

I just love this set. I did get the big butterfly stamp and die set at the Pomona show. I just can't afford the whole set. I can't work anymore. So all I live on is a small social security check. But thanks for the cards that you shear. They are so beautiful. Cheryl
