Taking the white card stock make a tent fold card measuring 8 1/4” x 6 1/4” / 21cm x 16cm. Using the Pink Tulip ink and a dauber or a foam-inking tool, ink the edges of the card front base. Finding in the paper collection the paper with the pink print. Cut this a little smaller than the card base. Ink the edges of this paper also with the Pink Tulip ink then adhere this to the card front.

Taking the lace frame, the inking tool, the Grasshopper and the Pink Tulip ink then ink the lace frame to give a pink color on the outside and the green on the inside of the frame. Adhere this to the card front using the 3D foam dots.

To make the Calla Lilly’s: The cream colored stamens are used for each Calla lily; apply a little orange ink to the stamens before use. Bring color to the leaves and the Calla lily’s using the Harmony inks and the inking tool. When this is done bring shape to them by using the 3D Calla Lilly mold that comes with the collection and using the shaping tools when needed. Adhere the stamen to the lily center using the hot glue gun and then folding both the lily edges over to the front to cover the beginning of the stamen. The wire is inked with the grasshopper ink. For these flowers, the wire is not cut away until they are twisted around each other to keep the flower spray in place. Arrange the Calla lilies and leaves at the foot of the lace frame as shown. Making a half circle for the swans to sit in. Leaving enough room for a triple and double bow made with the zutter bow maker at the center of the arrangement. Using as needed, the Calla Lilly sprays as fillers for this flower arrangement

To make the swans: Apply a little Pink Tulip ink to the head and body of the swan on the left. Apply diamond stickles or glitter to the swans feathers and crown on the right swan. Put aside to dry. Make two double bows and fold them on half. Adhere the bow so they will stay folded in half with the hot glue gun. Adhere the bows to the back of the swans at the tail so they will look like an extension of the feathery tail. To make the circle above the swan’s heads: This is made from the circle sentiment. Taking the circle dies that will cut the outer circle ring from the stamped sentiment. Apply a little Pink Tulip ink to the out side of the circle ring. Apply the glitter to the ring buy first applying clear drying glue to the surface then dipping or sprinkling glitter to the circle ring. Set aside to dry. When it is dry adhere the circle ring to the back of the swans between the ribbon bows.

Adhere the swans in place to the flower arrangement center and the acetate sentiment at the foot of the card. To finish this card apply a little diamond stickles or glitter to all the stamens in the Calla Lilly sprays.
