Let's get crafting!


Step 1: Create card base.

♥  Using the largest Simply Classic Rectangle Frame Die, cut card shape by leaving die 1/4" off top fold.

Cut 2 pieces of decorative paper to cover full front of card and to cover entire inside of card and adhere them.

Step 2: Die cut opening.

Using the third largest Simply Classic Rectangle Frame Die, cut an opening in only in the card front.

Step 3: Prepare the die cuts.

Cut all but the smallest decorative dies out of Luxe Gold.

Cut 1 of the largest decorative dies out of decorative paper as well as the gold.

Glue the 2 outer gold die cuts to the front of card and save the others for later.

Glue the large decorative paper die over gold.

Step 4: Decorate the inside.

Glue the gold inner decorative die and cut another of the same die out of decorative paper, glue off-set onto gold.

Stamp sentiment on another piece of decorative paper (the inside of what you just cut) then glue to the center of die cuts.

Step 5: Create the flowers.

Use Rose Madder to stamp small Wild Roses. Sponge with Pink Peony.

Die cut the Wild Roses using the coordinating die.

Shape in the 3D Shaping Mold.

Step 6: Create the leaves.

Use Salvaged Patina Distress or other turquoise ink to stamp the Leafy Accents leaves.

Sponge with Speckled Egg Distress Ink and Pink Peony.

Die cut then shape in the 3D Shaping mold.

Mix 3D Lacquer with Shimmer Additive then paint onto leaves.

Step 7: Finish the flowers.

Glue 2 of each size Wild Rose flowers together then pierce centers with Golf Groove Tool.

Insert gold stamens.

Step 8: Decorate the front of the card.

Arrange the flowers and leaves on card front.

When happy with arrangement, glue down.

Stamp and color a small Floral Butterfly using the same colors used for the flowers and leaves, die cut, shape and adhere.

Sponge the flowers and butterfly with dries clear adhesive and sprinkle with glitter.

Sponge and apply glitter randomly to the card front.

Add a gold pearl to the butterfly.
