Instructions: Cut a piece of white cardstock at 5 1/2 x 11 inches and score it and score and fold it on the long side at 5 1/2 inches, cut a piece of white cardstock at 5 1/4 x 10 1/2 score at 5 1/4 and fold this in half. Now measure from each side 1/2 inch in on the score line and make a mark, then go 1 inch up on both sides, 1/2 inch in again on both sides and 1 up on both sides, 1/2 inch in again and 1 up on both sides. (I will put the drawing on my Blog too). Now cut in both bottom 1 inch lines up then put your ruler at the end and fold the flap over the ruler, then make it really flat with your bone folder. Open the card and fold the flap inside and give it a good grease with your bone folder, now do the same with the next 1 inch up, cut it take your ruler and fold it again, open the card and fold this flap to the inside close the card and give it a good grease with your bone folder, do the same once more. Open the card now you have 3 stairs. Glue this piece in the other white card.

For the Inside of your card, cut 2 pieces of designer paper at 3/4 x 2 inches and 1 piece 3/4 x 3 inches. Ink the edges with Rich Cocoa and glue them on the stairs. Now stamp with the Rhubarb Stalk the Oakberry Blossoms, stamp several flowers (18) on white cardstock, cut them out with the coordinating die. Color the center of the flowers with Buttercup and the outside with the Pearlescent Poppy, put a dot of the lavender Nuvo drops in the center and let it dry. Stamp the Leaves from that set with the Rich Cocoa on white cardstock, color them with the mix of the greens and put some of the red color on the edges too, cut them out with the coordinating die. You don't have to shape these ones because they go on the inside of the card so they stay as flat as possible! Glue them all on the front of the 3 stairs in the card, also the leaves. Stamp 5 Squirrels you like with the Black Tuxedo, color them with a mix of Rich Cocoa and Toffee Crunch and cut them out with the coordinating dies and place 5 of them in between the flowers.

Cut a piece of paper from the paper pad at 5 x 5 inches, ink the edges and glue it on the front. Take a die from the Regal Borders and Pockets set and cut 1 out of white cardstock and glue this on the front of your album, cover it with glue and shard glass. Stamp the big flower from the Oakberry Lane Antics set with Tuxedo Black on white cardstock and cut it out with the coordinating die, then color the image with the same colors as the small flowers. Put some glue in the center and sprinkle some of the shard glass on it. Stamp some smaller flowers from the Oakberry blossom set and Rhubarb Stalk, cut them out with the die. Do the same with the leaves, stamp them with the Rich Cocoa and color them with a mix of Bamboo Leaves and Leaf Green ink. On the edge of the leaves you can add Pearlescent Poppy ink, cut them out with the coordinating die. Now put the flowers and the leaves in the 3D mold and spray them lightly with water and put the top on the mold and run it through your machine, make a hole in the center and pull a stamen through it. Now you can make a nice arrangement of the flowers on the front cover off your card, you still have 1 squirrel left so place him in between the flowers.
