Instructions: Chose one of the Foldout cards from the set, and use a bone folder to re-enforce the score lines. I choose my papers and face them back to back. Place under each foldout section. Draw the curve across the top with a pencil. Using the straight edge die, line it up with the pencil line, tape in place and run through die cutting machine. These dies will cut through two pieces of paper. Choose the decorative borders you want to use and cut using white cardstock, leaving about 1" along the bottom to glue onto the fold out if you raise it above the edge. Glue border to foldout and then trim off edges if needed. Glue designer paper over front and back of each foldout in this manner. Add rhinestone trim on edges.

Stamp sentiment on white cardstock and the "Thinking of You" onto an oval from the paper pad. Color the "love" sentiment using RV69, 66, &63. Cut with the largest oval from the small set, then cut an oval of printed designer paper using the largest oval from the large set. Glue at the top of the last page of the foldout. Using the scalloped edged essentials die cut one side of a 1 5/8" strip of white cardstock. Remove die and cut opposite edge. Trim to width of the foldout. Add glue to each side and bottom edge only. Glue this to the lower bottom edge under the sentiment to form a pocket. Glue rhinestone trim to center of pocket. Cut three tags from the paper pad using the luggage and tags die. String twine through the holes and slide into pocket. Glue oval to opposite panel, then glue trim to upper curved edge and around oval. Stamp the "Delight" sentiment onto a 1 3/4" X 2 7/8" piece of pink harlequin patterned paper. Cut a mat of dark rose from pad 2" X 3". Glue in place on second foldout from the back. Glue rhinestones to the top curve.

Cut three hummingbirds as pictured from the paper pad with matching die. Add pink and green pearl water colors to them. Stamp two medium and four small orchids with Versamark, dust with embossing powder and heat set. Color center and tips of petals with RV63. Color stamen piece for each flower using RV66, & 69 on top and Y23, & 21 on bottom half. Add stickles. Use video listed above to shape flowers. Cut 6 large and 6 small lily leaves from green in paper pad, spritz with glimmer mist. When all pieces are dry glue orchids in place as pictured. Glue in leaves. Add hummingbirds with pop-dots to finish your card.
