Instructions: Cut the three card borders from kraft cardstock and adhere to the front of each section to later be covered by patterned paper. Die cut 1 lattice piece from the Window Box Elements dies from kraft cardstock, cut it in half and set aside.
Cut a piece of the yellow patterned paper that is 5 x 7" and adhere to the back panel of the card. Cut a piece of the blue patterned paper that is 5 x 7" and use the plain edge border die to cut that top edge. Adhere to the second largest section and trim off any overhang at the bottom.
Cut a piece of the green plaid patterned paper that is 5 x 7" and cut that top edge using the plain edge border die. Adhere to the third largest section and trim off any overhang at the bottom of the card. Add the lattice piece that you set aside to the right hand side of this section.
Cut a piece of the patterned background that is 4 x 7", for this section I decided to trace and cut by hand, so I could get a very specific portion of the pattern. Adhere to the front section of the card.
Find and die cut the large green tag and the small orange tag. Add burlap string bows and adhere to the back section of the card.
Stamp and die cut 2 straight sunflowers using Early Espresso ink on white cardstock and die cut. I used just the flower top from one. I added colour to the image using Chameleon Pens (YO2, OL3, BR5). Add the flower top on top of the full flower using 3D foam squares. Adhere on top of the lattice piece on the green patterned paper section. Add a brown pearl on the lattice.
Stamp and die cut 2 set of Water Lily images using Early Espresso Ink on white cardstock and die cut. Add colour to make them look like sunflowers. I added colour using inks and daubers. Start with the Fossilized Amber on the flowers, and then I used Walnut Stain on the tips. Shape and assemble your flowers. I added beads to the middles using 3D Crystal Lacquer.
Stamp and die cut 2 of the leaves from Sunflower Accents using Early Espesso ink on white cardstock and die cut. I added colour using Chameleon Pens (OL3). Shape the leaves. I added the flowers and 1 set of leaves to the bottom left hand corner of the front section of the card. Add brown pearls.
Die cut the bear and fire from the patterned paper images. Also find and cut out the “Happy Birthday” sentiment, and flag one end. Adhere to the front portion of the card using 3D foam squares. Using the Spectrum Noir Sparkle pen, add sparkle to the fire image.
Find and cut out the “Hoping your day is perfect” sentiment and flag the right end. Adhere to the yellow section of the card. Add your other set of leaves on top of the orange mini tag.
