To see how to shape the blossoms on this card, watch this video https://youtu.be/HirfUN8NEYY.

Instructions: Cut a piece of white cardstock to 8 1/2 x 5 1/2" size, score and fold at 4 1/4" to create card base. From the Tulip Time paper collection, cut a piece of green background paper to 5 3/8 x 4 1/8" size. Lightly sponge the edges of paper panel with Leaf Green ink and attach onto card base. Using from the HCD1-7226 Diamond Basics Die, diecut the 2nd largest diamond from the center of card front. Use the same die along with the coordinating 2nd largest die from HCD1-7227 Eyelet Diamond Die to diecut a petite border frame from olive green cardstock. Layer border frame around the edge of diamond shaped opening. Use the 2nd largest diamond die again to diecut a pink paper from the collection and attach through diamond opening onto inside of card. Use the 3rd largest die from HCD1-7227 Eyelet Diamond Die to diecut a dark fuchsia paper from the collection. Use the lattice diamond from HCD1-7228 Lacy Diamond Die to diecut from white cardstock. Layer white lattice diamond onto dark fuchsia diamond, then use dimensional adhesive to attach through diamond opening onto inside of card.

Stamp the large, medium and small blossoms from HCPC-3842 Oakberry Lane Blossoms Cling Stamp Set in Tiger Lily ink onto white cardstock and diecut with coordinating dies. Stamp the leaves from the same stamp set in Vivid Chartreuse ink onto white cardstock and diecut with coordinating dies.

Use the Stack and Store daubers to color the images. For the blossoms, use Tiger Lily ink on the edges of petals and Vivid Chartreuse in the centers. For the leaves use a light touch of Vivid Chartreuse ink.

Place the blossoms and leaves into the HCFB1-469 3D Blossoms Shaping Mold, lightly mist with water and send through die cutting machine. Then assemble the blossoms together as pictured. There will be 1 large and medium extra blossom left over that can be used for another project. Pierce a hole through the blossom centers and thread the green and yellow wire stamens through. Use hot glue to attach wire on the backside of each flower. Trim wire to desired length and then use hot glue to attach onto card. Use hot glue again to attach leaves, trimming them apart as desired. Cut a message from the paper collection, sponge edges with Vibrant Fuchsia ink and attach onto card as pictured. Use the Dries Clear glue along with Crystal glitter to add a touch of sparkle over card as desired.
