Instructions: Cut white cardstock 5.5" X 11". Fold in half. Diagonally score the front panel of the card from the top outside corner down to the spine. Cut 1 pink panel and 1 yellow patterned panel, as shown, from the "Backyard Blossoms" paper pad and also a sentiment and I tag. Trim both panels to 5 1/8" square. Diagonally cut the yellow panel in half from corner to corner. You will need to trim a small amount off the longest edge of the yellow panel so that a small border of the white cardstock will show through. Now adhere these panels to the card.

Stamp 1 yellow flower from the "Garden Edge Coneflower" stamp on white cardstock using Peeled Paint and Chrome Yellow inks. Colour with same inks and die cut with coordinating die. Stamp 3 pink flowers from the "Garden Edge Coneflower" stamp on white cardstock using Peeled Paint and Vibrant Fuchsia inks. Stamp 1 pink tall coneflower from the "Backyard Blossoms" stamp set using Peeled Pain and Vibrant Fuchsia ink on white cardstock, color with same inks and die cut.

Using the Vibrant Fuchsia ink, stamp 2 small pieces of floral foliage from the "Backyard Blossoms" stamp set. Colour with same inks and die cut. Stamp 2 green sets of leaves from the "Classic Rose" stamp set using Peeled Paint on white cardstock, colour with same ink and die cut.

Apply some glue to the coneflower centers and the pink flower sprays and sprinkle with glitter. Set aside to dry.

Paint chipboard doily in 2 coats of white paint or alternatively heat emboss it in white. Trim sentiment slightly, cut a small "V" either end, ink edges in Vibrant Fuchsia ink and shape this strip with your fingers. Tie a large bow using 4 strands of fine string or any suitable twine will do.

Adhere tag to front panel of card so that it is sitting up beyond folded edge. Glue multi stranded bow to tag.

Cut some of the foliage pieces in half & adhere all flowers & foliage to card front. Adhere using foam doets on desired flowers. Be sure to stagger the flowers.

Adhere white doily with foam dots onto the inside pink panel of the card about an inch in on either side. This is what holds the card open. Adhere one pink flower onto doily and adhere greeting down using foam dots.
