Watch this video https://youtu.be/6MiIL4M1RKA to see how to shape the Arianna Blooms Flowers.
Instructions: Fold pre-scored card base. Cut a mat from pink cardstock, 4 3/4" X 6 3/4" and glue to card front. Cut a mat 6" X 6" from paper pad, and trim this down on one side to 4 1/2". Cut 5 pieces of the fan shaped piece from the Arianna Lace die. Flip the designer paper over and arrange fan pieces to fit across short side of paper. You will want just about 7/8" of these pieces to stick up as a border. Glue them down. Just a hint, I use my glue pen and add a few drops to the bottom front side of these pieces and let dry, so as to make them repositionable. This will make them easy to peel up to align them evenly. Cut another strip of designer paper 1" X 4 1/2". Glue this strip to top of pink mat, leaving about 1/8" of pink exposed. Cut a 6" piece of ribbon and glue down just under the fan border, tuck ends around the back, and then glue this entire piece to pink matted card front. Cut two scrolls from the Timeless Amour Die and one solid blue heart and One white lattice heart from the same die set. Glue the two hearts together. Cut one pink Oval from the Spellbinder die and glue a white scroll on the back of each side as pictured. Stamp, with Distress ink, on white cardstock two sets of petals and cut out with Arianna Blooms die. Sponge edges with same ink for a little richer color. Cut five of the medium stamen from pink cardstock. Shape and glue petals together to form two medium and one small flower. Use two stamens for medium flower centers and one for small flower center. Stamp two set of leaves, color them with Copic YG 63 & 61. Cut out with matching die. Coat all flowers and leaves with Mod-Podge & set aside to dry. Stamp Fluffy Birdies with Memento ink on a 4 1/2" X 3 1/2" piece of X-Press it paper. Color with Copics as follows, branch-E29 & 25. Leaves- YG63, & 61. Flower buds- V15, & 000. Bodies of birds- R85, 83, 81, RV00, RV000. Wings and tails- W5, 3, 1, & 00. Go back over wings with a few highlights of R81 and RV000. I used a very light blue from the chalk set to add some sky looking background. Coat flowers and leaves with Mod-Podge also. When dry, cut out image with the largest oval from the Spellbinder set, using the tutorial on the HC blog, & glue to pink oval. Glue down rhinestone trim around oval and clip off five pieces & glue into center of each fan flourish. Glue image piece about 3/4" below ribbon and attach heart with pop-dots to lower left of ovals. Arrange & glue down flowers and glue in leaves. Make a double bow and attach charm to knot. Glue this down with Fabri-Tac. Cut the tag out and attach with pop-dots above bow to complete the card.
