Instructions: Click here to see a close up view of this card. The open dimensions of this card is 17 x 5 1/2". Die cut double layers for each panel that shows from the front and one for each "backside" of the fold out card using the Flowering Dogwood Paper, the Classic Border Basics Die. On the back rectangle panel, die cut the opening for the Botanic Window from the blue paper only, replace the window opening with another piece of (different print) pink.  Glue all paper panels to their specific card panels.

Die cut Delicate Borders, Fleur Pockets, Botanic Window and Ornate Borders from white linen. Stamp and die cut flowers, leaves, Dove and Flowering Dogwood hanging branch using Rose Bud, Pistachio and Gray Flannel Memento. Using the Stack and Store Daubers, sponge Angel Pink on the pink flowers and New Sprout on the leaves. I used Copic BV-20 to shade the Dove.

I used the 3mm and 6mm tips on the flower shaping tool along with the soft embossing mat to form the flowers and leaves after lightly misting with water. When completely dry I added green Prills using the Dries Clear Adhesive. I added more adhesive to the ends of the petals and added Crystal Clear glitter to the ends.

Starting on the back panel, I glued the Botanic Window frame to the opening that I cut earlier, added the Flowering Dogwood hanging branch (cut apart in pieces) then added my pink and "white" Dogwood and leaves. The dove is double popped with foam tape and attached to the right top of back panel. I then added tiny pearls to the window frame and made a triple (small) bow with the dyed seam binding, misted it with water and crinkled in then added it to the right side under the dove tail.

The next panel is just a pink layer and has the Fleur Pocket glued to the lower left side.  I cut out a tag from the Flowering Dogwood paper and added a bit of Delicate Border to the top.  Cut another small tag, punched a hole and added narrow ribbon then glued it to the rectangle tag, added a piece of the hanging branch and tucked it inside the pocket.

The next panel I added another little piece of the hanging branch to the right top and more pink and white dogwood with leaves to the left top.  My paper has a small dove on the lower right side.

Inside the last panel is a pink layer with the Ornate Border die cut and another piece of the hanging branch.

On the front (shortest panel), I have a double layer of paper, one has another small dove on the left side. I added dogwood to the right side and a small narrow ribbon bow.

To finish off my card, I added paper panels to the back sides (one of which shows when the card is closed).  For the panel that shows I chose a paper with hanging dogwood.  I added Prills to the centers of the flowers and glitter to the outside edges just as I did with my formed flowers.
