Adhere inside the back. Attach the two triangles on either side. Attach the border as shown. Distress the borders with pink peony ink.

Stamp the dogwood flower and leaves images on vellum using embossing ink. Add white embossing powder and heat set. Cut with coordinating die. Apply the pink shade on the dogwoods and green ink on the leaves. Shape the flowers a little on flower shaping tool kit. Add the green center and add prills.
