Instructions: Cut cream cardstock to 6 x 8 1/2" size, score and fold at 4 1/4" to create card base. Cut the 6 x 6" blue panel with quilt blocks from the paper collection to 5 7/8 x 4 1/8" size. Very lightly sponge the edges of panel with Manganese Blue ink and attach onto card base. Cut the 4 x 6" yellow patterned panel from the paper collection to 4 x 5 3/4" size. Tear top right and bottom left corners away from panel at an angle. Using from the HCD1-7202 Album Tags and Accents, diecut 2 border strips from white cardstock. Lightly sponge the edges of the borders and yellow panel with Sunflower ink. Attach borders alongside torn edges of panel. Use dimensional adhesive to attach onto card at an angle.

Stamp the large button flower from HCPC-3849 Buttons and Blooms Cling Stamp Set in Deep Purple ink onto white cardstock and diecut with coordinating die. Repeat this step using the medium button flower in Paradise Teal ink and the small button flower in Tiger Lily ink. Stamp the set of buttons from HCPC-3849 Buttons and Blooms, denim pocket from HCPC-3850 Patchwork Pocket & Patterns, and birthday wishes banner from HCPC-3851 Hand-stitched Accents Cling Stamp Set in Colorbox Dark Brown ink onto white cardstock and diecut with coordinating dies. Stamp 'Thinking of You' from HCPC-3848 Cheerful Note Sentiments Cling Stamp Set in Paradise Teal ink onto white cardstock and diecut with tag from HCD1-7202 Album Tags and Accents Die.

Use the Stack and Store daubers to color the images. For the large button flower, use Cactus Flower ink along with Sunflower ink. For the medium button flower, use Garden Patina and Sunflower ink. For the small button flower, use Sunflower ink. For the buttons, use Sunflower and Garden Patina on the smallest, Sunflower on the medium, and Deep Purple and Cactus Flower on the largest. For the denim pocket, first cut apart the top fold from rest of pocket. Then sponge the edges of pocket with Paradise Teal ink and use a soft touch of Sunflower on the rest. Cut off the 'Warmest' from birthday wishes banner. Use the Sunflower, Garden Patina and Vivid Chartreuse for the banner. Sponge the edges of tag with Garden Patina and center with Sunflower ink.

Use the stylus from the HCST1-401 Deluxe Flower shaping kit to shape the flowers, buttons and banner. Assemble each of the flowers in double layer and place coordinating buttons in the centers. Use a water mister to dampen the pocket and then scrunch for a worn denim look. Cut apart the birthday wishes banner into 2 pieces.

Use the Designer Dries Clear glue and adhesive to attach pocket, banner and flowers. Thread a hemp string through tag and attach next to largest flower. Use the glue along with Art Institute Baby's Breath glitter on the flowers and rest of card as desired. Apply 3D Crystal Lacquer onto flower buttons and let dry.
