Let's get crafting!


Step 1: Cut a piece of white card stock 11 5/8 x 5 1/2" and then score at 3 7/8" and 7 3/4". Fold using a bone folder along the score lines.

Step 2: Place the large tag die from Album Tags and Accents Die at the top of folded card and cut just the top as shown in photo by placing the top cutting plate at the point where you want the cut to stop, then run it through your machine.

Top Tip: Use removable tape to hold the die in place.

Step 3: Place the die at the bottom of the card and run through the machine again to finish the card base. Use the smaller die to cut an insert out of decorative paper. The paper used for this sample is ivory from the Lush Lilac Collection.

Step 4: Add glitter to panels using a sponge and adhesive and sprinkling with Ultrafine Crystal Glitter. Glue the inserts onto each panel and ink all edges with Cactus Flower Archival Ink using a sponge dauber.

Use the inside die of the Eyelet Lace Frame Die set to cut orchid paper and glue one die cut to the center of each panel.

Step 5: Stamp and die the cut flowers (Oakberry Lane Blossoms and Wildwood Florals) using Cactus Flower and Garden Patina Archival Inks and then sponge with the same inks to add color on the edges.

Step 6: Stamp the leaves with Fern Green ink and sponge with Leaf Green, Cactus Flower and Garden Patina ink and then die cut. Color the backs of leaves with Leaf Green.

Step 7: Then run flowers and leaves through shaping molds.

Step 8: Glue 3 blossoms together for each Oakberry flower and pierce through the center of each to add stamen. The Wildwood Florals are single blossoms and shaped with the Deluxe Flower Shaping Kit.

Top Tip: Push hard in the center of each Wildwood Floral to give the flowers a beautiful shape.

Step 8A: Add "Lettuce Entertain You" Prills to the center of Wildwood Florals. Add Rock Candy stamen to the Oakberry Blossoms. Add glitter to each flower and mist leaves with clear shimmer spray.

Step 9: Stamp the sentiments "On Your Special Day" and "Best Wishes" from Celebrate Love Sentiments Stamp Set and die cut using the Ornamental Tags Die. Sponge the edges with Garden Patina ink.

Add an orchid ribbon to the small tag. Add foam tape to each side of the large sentiment tag and stick it to the right panel bowing it slightly in the center.

Step 10: Use flowers, leaves, and more stamens to make floral arrangements on each panel and let the glue dry.

Use the metal tip on Dries Clear Adhesive to make small dots of adhesive here and there around each arrangement and add Prills to the adhesive finish. Tuck small tag into foliage on center panel.
