Instructions: This tent fold card measures 6 1/8" x 6 1/8" (16.5 cm) when completed. Taking the white card-stock make the tent fold card base. Using the yellow card-stock cut a little smaller for the matting. Taking the green card-stock, cut this to 6" x 6 ". Find the pink background design paper in the Petunia paper collection, cut this a little smaller than the green card-stock. Taking the mask and the modelling paste, apply to the design paper. When the paste is dry ink the edges with the Mustard seed distress ink. Add a touch of green on the letters with the Thyme ink (green). Adhere all the layers to the card base with glue or tape, except the top layer. This is done with double dots or foam double-sided tape to give height. 

To make the three lanterns, use the white card stock and stamp with the gold embossing powder, make six. You will find the petunia basket stamp and die in the Classic Petunia Bouquet sets. When die cutting the image, cut a few extra for each basket so the lantern will become a chipboard when all the layers are adhered together. Adhere the fancy string to the back of the card front and to the placement of the top of the lantern. Adhere the lanterns in place with double dots and glue. 

Make the flowers and leaves by stamping with the black archival ink, die cutting then shaping. Color the flowers and leaves. Apply the Lettuce Entertain You prills to the flower centres. When dry adhere in place to the lanterns with the hot glue gun or the clear drying glue. The leaves are snipped so they become separate leaves then they are tucked in under the flowers and adhered in place with the hot glue gun or the clear drying glue. Taking the bling border trim so it can be laid across the join in the lantern. 

Taking once again the yellow and green card-stock, die cut the Aloha so this forms also a chipboard tittle. Adhere all the layers together then to the card front. Apply the crystal lacquer to the top layer to finish the card. Put aside to dry.
