Let's get crafting!
Step 1: Start by stamping the Cheery Pansy floral images using grey ink (Archival- Shadow Grey), onto white cardstock. Add color using Zig Clean Color Markers, and a waterbrush.
Step 2: Start the coloring with the Violet Zig Clean Color pen on the inner section of the flowers. Then using Light Violet, add color to the outer section of the flowers. Finally, using the Yellow, add color to the middle of the flowers. Next, die cut the flowers, 1 small and 1 medium. Shape the flowers using the 3D Pansy Shaping Mold. Assemble the flowers and using a liquid adhesive add Prills to the middle of each flower. Let dry.

Step 3: Cut a piece of the medium toned purple patterned paper 4.25 x 5.5", and adhere to the white cardstock card base (8.5 x 5.5", folded in half). Die cut the following: 1 x Hand-Stitched Accents frame from white cardstock. 1 x Butterfly Kisses Butterfly (snip off just the swirly bits). Using the largest Diamond Basics Die, cut 1 from the lightest purple patterned paper. Using the 2nd largest Eyelet Diamond Die, cut 1 from white cardstock, then using the 2nd largest Diamond Basics Die, cut the middle out of the scalloped diamond. Using the 2 smaller dies from the Lacy Diamond Die, cut 1 from white cardstock
Top Tip: Tape 2 dies together before running through my machine, to ensure the perfectly placed cut.
Using that same small plain diamond die, cut 1 from the dark purple patterned paper. Using the smallest die from the Intricate Swirls Die, cut 1 from white cardstock. Using the same grey ink as the flowers, stamp the "For My Friend" sentiment onto that last die cut piece.
Step 4: Adhere the large white frame to the card using small 3D foam squares. Adhere the narrow scalloped border to the light purple patterned diamond using a glue pen.
Adhere this entire piece to the card using 2 layers of 3D foam squares.
Adhere the smallest white cardstock diamond to the purple patterned diamond of the same size using thin strips of 3D foam. Adhere this piece to the larger diamond using regular adhesive.
Adhere the smallest die cut piece to the middle of the card using 3D foam.
Step 5: Adhere the flowers to the card using adhesive dots. Add the swirly bits from Butterfly Kisses around the flowers, and in the opposite corner of the card also. The final touch is adding some perfect sparkly sequins.
