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

Instructions: Cut base card from white card stock 5" x 7". Cut out green base from paper collection 5 3/4" x 5 3/4". Cut out panel from designer paper and back with white cardstock leaving a slight edge. Mount on top of the green base card using foam dots. Stamp dogwood with frost white on vellum paper and cover with antique ivory and heat set. Cut out the flowers and leaves using the coordinating dies. Color the back of the leaves and the flowers with the touch markers and layers together to create 10 flowers. Top the center of the flowers off with the stamen that is colored green with the touch markers and the prills and allow to dry. Stamp two of the branches with the frost white on the vellum and cover with embossing powder and heat set. Do the same with the flowering frame. Cut both the frame and the branches out with the coordinating die. Color both with the touch markers. Lightly press on the vellum flowers and leaves with the flowering shaping tool kit, being sure not to press too hard, and give a slight lift to the flowers. Stamp the crosses in the middle bottom of the front panel and color in with the spectrum aqua pencils blending with the CTMH blending pen. Add the two branches to the top of the card using Dries Clear Glue. Cut one end of the frame off and then add to the bottom of the card as shown. Sprinkle the card with the flowers you created and add crystal lacquer to the crosses to finish it up.
