Watch this video to learn different shaping techniques using the dogwood flowers.

Instructions: Begin with a 6" x 6" white card base. Trim premade card panel from paper collection shown just slightly smaller than card base to allow a white edge around card front. Distress card front using gold and brown colored ink. Ink all edges of card front panel as well with both gold and brown colored inks. Using the oval die cut from the Eyelet Oval Die, die cut into card front as shown. Ink edges of oval die cut as well using brown and gold ink. Choose a coordinating decorative paper to mat behind the oval die cut. Adhere card front to card base.

Next, stamp one inking of the draping dogwood flower branch with a light brown ink onto white card stock. Using sponge daubers, apply color to branch, leaves and flowers. Die cut using coordinating die and then shape using flower shaping tools. Adhere to card as shown. Adhere cross decoration over top draping dogwood flower branch using pop dots and a good adhesive. Next stamp one inking of each of the sizes of dogwood flowers onto white card stock using a darker pink color. Add a touch of lighter pink to the ends of each petal and a lighter yellow color to each center. Go over entire flower lightly with a brown colored ink. Die cut with coordinating die, spritz lightly with water and shape using flower shaping tools. Choose the size flowers you wish to use and adhere to card front as shown. Die cut stamen for each flower, ink both sides with a yellow ink and then shape. Adhere to flower centers and then add a touch of glue to adhere prills to stamen. Stamp one inking of each of the leaves from the cling stamp set onto white card stock with a darker green ink and then color with a sponge dauber with a lighter green ink. Once again go over with a light sponging of light brown. Shape leaves and adhere to card as shown. Lastly, on the florals on the pre printed images, add a touch of glue and then glitter!
