Instructions: The finished size of this tent fold card is 5 1/4" x 5 1/4" (13.5 cm x 13.5 cm). Make the card base with the white card stock. Find the blue design paper in the Winter's Eve collection. Cut two layers of matting papers, about 1/4" (.5 cm) smaller than the card base and adhere using 3D foam dots in between each layer (allow space for a ribbon to go beneath the bottom layer, as shown).
Taking the stamp and die sets for the window box fillers, stamp, die cut, colour and shape images. I used black ink on white cardstock to stamp and Distress inks: Broken China, Mowed Lawn, Fired Brick to colour using daubers. Apply the black and gold crystal drops to the flower centres and set aside to dry.
Die cut two of the window boxs and ink the box edges using Broken China ink. Adhere the flower arranger piece to the front inside of the box, adhere the flowers and leaves to the slots with the hot glue gun. When the slots are full and you are happy with the arrangement, adhere the rest of the box together. This flower box has a back and will be closed on all sides.
Die cut one window decorative border (HCD1-7150), two decorative lattice (HCD1-7150) and two decorative arch (HCD1-7146) from white cardstock. Ink using Broken China ink along with the daubers. Adhere decorative border across the flower box base as shown and the two decorative lattice pieces and two decorative archs directly onto card base as shown.
Make a bow from the ribbon. Adhere a ribbon band across the front of the matting at the base of the flower box. Adhere the bow with a glue dot. To finish, apply a little Diamond Stickles to the blue flower petals.
