Watch this video to see how to shape the Classic Petunias.

Instructions: For Petunia flowers, stamp and cut the multiple images of various sizes and paint them using Colorbox Harvest and Berrylicious. Shape the flowers on Deluxe flower shaping kit. For shaping of flowers, check Emma Lou's video. All the flowers and leaves are dressed up with Crystal Clear. The tiniest flowers used on the card are from the Wildwood Cottage Collection. After shaping the flowers, I have added small wired pollen in the center with the glue that dries clear. For berries, I have used various sizes of styrofoam buds, painted them with acrylic paint and then added frosting powder using Distress rock candy clear crackle. Heat a little to get the desired look. 

For Butterflies, Stamp the images with Versamark on vellum, sprinkle white heat embossing powder, dust extras, and heat set using the heat tool. Cut the images with coordinating die. The flower pots, cart, and flower vase is stamped with black archival and then painted with Zig Clean Clear markers. Once all the elements are ready, choose a designer paper with bench image and cut it to 6" by 7 ". Neatly cut the bench image using Xacto knife and keep it aside. 

Now for the base of the card, cut white card stock measuring 6" by 7" and layer the bench pattern paper on it. Using double sided tape now layer already cut image exactly on the empty space. For the top and bottom lacy border, cut 2 strips of white cardstock, lightly distress it using Picked Raspberry. Cut one edge using Classic Border Basics Die, and add white fancy lace to it. Before adhering the white lace, don't forget to score the pink distressed panel each time at 1/8". Adhere the whole top panel first on another white card mat and then to ready top fold, measuring 6 1/2" by 7 1/2". Finally, add a sentiment cut out from the same paper collection to finish up the card.
