Lets get crafting together!


Step 1: Cut a navy piece of card stock 11 x 4 1/4” and score at 5 1/2” and 8 1/4”. Cut another piece of navy card stock 9 x 3 1/2” and score at 4 1/2”. Cut the Cottage Garden paper slightly smaller than each section and adhere to the scored sections. On the middle section stamp the HCPC 3845 ‘Hope your day is as special as you are’ sentiment.

On the inside designer paper for the top section, cut a half circle in the top and adhere to the navy cardstock on just the two sides and the very bottom to create a pocket for the gift card. 

Step 2: Stamp the HCPC-3901 Fresh Cut Hydrangea on the Deluxe Flower Shaping paper with the Archival Jet Black ink, color the flower edges with the Manganese Blue ink and the leaves with the Vivid Chartreuse.

Step 3: Stamp the HCPC 3900 Cottage Garden Hydrangea on the Deluxe Flower Shaping paper with the Manganese Blue ink, color the center with the Vivid Chartreuse ink.

Step 4: Die cut everything using the coordinating dies and finish coloring or inking the edges.

Step 5: Place the flower petals in the coordinating mold, lightly spray a mist of water and run through the die cutting machine.

Step 6: Using the Deluxe Flower shaping kit, turn both of the stamped flower imagines over and shape.

Step 7: Stamp 2 more of the Hydrangea with the Manganese Blue ink and color inside, die cut using the 2 circle dies.

Layer them on top of each other with foam dots. The graduated sizes will give that dome shape.

Step 8: Begin on the outside and add petals until completely covered.

Step 9: Stamp the Special Birthday sentiment ‘Birthday Love’ on the Deluxe Flower Shaping paper with the Manganese Blue ink and cut out using the Basic Circle dies. Cut one a little larger out of the navy cardstock and adhere together.

Step 10: Adhere the smallest flower to the inside and the large one to the outside using the heat gun. To complete, use the Dries Clear adhesive and add glitter to all the petals and leaves. Add Prills to the center of each petal. Adhere the ‘Birthday Love’ sentiment.
