Directions: 

Step 1: Create the layers for the card base.

♥ Cut a piece of gold cardstock 5” x 7”.

♥ Cut a piece of gold cardstock 4 5/8” x 6 5/8”.

♥ Cut a piece of pattern paper 4 1/2" x 6 1/2".

♥ Die out of gold cardstock.

♥ Cut a piece of light green pattern paper 3 1/4" x 5 1/4”.  

Step 2: Adhere all the pieces together to create the card base.

Step 3: Stamp and colour the images for the sweet pea flowers.

Stamp the leaf and sepal images in Library Green ink on Deluxe Flower Shaping Paper.

Colour the images with Leaf Green and Library Green inks and die cut with the coordinating dies.

Stamp the flower images in Majestic Violet ink on Deluxe Flower Shaping Paper.

Colour the images with Buttercup ink and the centres of the flowers with Leaf Green ink and die cut with the coordinating dies.

Colour the edges both sides with Violet ink and the backs with Buttercup and Leaf Green inks.

Step 4: Shape the flowers.

Spritz the images lightly with water and shape using the coordinating mold.

Complete shaping by folding the leaves with your fingers. 

Use the stylus to press down in the centres of the flowers.

Step 5: Assemble the flowers.

           ♥ Pierce the centres of the flowers.

           ♥ Insert three light purple bead wire stamens and assemble the flowers including the petals and sepals using a hot glue gun.

           ♥ Add a small wire to the base of the leaves with a hot glue gun.

           ♥ Create tendrils out of florist wire.

           ♥ Wind florist tape down the wire stems of the flowers and add a leaf and a tendril.  

Step 6: Add Crystal Clear glitter to the flowers with clear gloss gel.

Step 7: Prepare all the painted images.

           ♥ Stamp the vase and floral images on Iris cardstock in embossing ink and heat emboss with gold embossing powder.

           ♥ Colour the images with Zig Clean Colour Real Brush Markers.

           ♥ Die cut with the coordinating dies.

           ♥ Die cut the decorative die out of gold cardstock.

Step 8: Start decorating the card front.

           ♥ Adhere the gold decorative die to the front of the vase.

Adhere the vase to the front of the card after shaping it with foam tape at the base of the card.

Adhere the painted images to the vase. 

Step 9: Add the flowers to the vase.  

Step 10: Create the tag.

           ♥ Stamp the sentiment from the HCPC-3982 Classic Floral Vase Cling Stamp Set in Deep Purple ink on pattern paper.

           ♥ Die cut the tag using the round die from the HDC1-7203 Ornamental Tags Die.
