Instructions so you can create this project too:

1. The finished card measure 5 x 7. Take a 10 x 7 white base and fold it in half to make a top fold card. Place die from die HCD2-7383  about 1/2" up past fold so that fold does not get cut. Use the same die again on a piece of paper #6A from the Floral Banner Collection.  Ink the edge with Coastal Coral ink and glue it to the folded card matching bottom and side edges. Cut the decorative part of the outside die out of Gold Luxe. Glue it to the card front.

2. Cut in the same pink paper a rectangle with the third larger die.  Ink the edge and glue it with 3D foam on the base. Cut the decorative part of this smaller dies out of gold paper and clue it on the base too. Cut the word LOVE with the die Letters and Numbers in a patter paper. Glue it in the middle of the card and add 3D Crystal lacquer on it to give dimension.

3. Stamp your Climbing Clematis flowers with Coastal Coral and Viridian ink onto white flower shaping paper, color the center and shade the edge with the same color. You can also color the back of the flowers. Diecut with the coordinate die. Place facedown into the flower shaping mold, spritz with water and run through the diecutting machine to shape. When dry, give further shape with Deluxe flower shaping kit tools. Glue 2 layers together. In the center of the flowers make a hole and stamens. Make 1 big viridian flower and 3 little Coastal coral.  Add gold shimmer with the nuvo pen on the edge of the flowers.

4. Stamp fill in element from Wild aster and Holly berry Spray stamp with Olive ink.  Die cut with the appropriate die and color it with stampin’ write melon sorbet marker. Make an arrangement on the left of your card and glue your flowers over it. 

For the final touch, add a bow, ribbon and stamen through your bouquet.

This was so wonderful! I loved seeing so many different cards, by so many different women. I LOVED the "different" color combinations. They were so inspiring. I think that the blue flowers, and the pink card were most inspirational to me. THANK YOU.
