Diecut a matching outline from pink background paper within the Peony paper collection. Attach the outline onto the backside of front flap.

Use the Stack and Store daubers along with the following inks to color. You will need 2 each of the peony petals. On both sides of the peony petals, use Lipstick Red ink, shading darker on the inside and lighter on the edge. For the leaves, use Bamboo Leaves. Sponge edges of banner with Lipstick Red ink.

Use the Floral Basics shaping mold to shape petals or simply shape with shaping stylus. If using the shaping mold, place the petals stamped side up into the mold and mist with water. Assemble the peony petals as pictured. Shape the leaves and banner with stylus. Attach peonies, leaves and banner onto card. Dab Dries Clear glue onto a sponge and apply over peonies and leaves as desired, then sprinkle with Rajni Chawla's Crystal Clear. Use the same glue to add Minnie Pearl prills to the peony centers.
