Instructions: Card size: 5 x 7”. Cut a piece of white cardstock 7 1/2 x 10”, fold to make 5 x 7 1/2"card base. Lay the outer edge of the Teardrop Lattice Gateway die so that it hangs over the edge of the fold by about 1/8”, cut then cut 1 full outer die cut to glue onto the front of card. Cut another piece out of decorative paper-Aqua color. Make a thin silver frame for the card edge by using the outer die of 2 sets (they are just a tiny bit different in size), the Teardrop Lattice and the Scalloped Flourish Gateway die sets. Cut the outer die first then set the smaller die onto top and cut again to form the frame. Glue it to the edge (optional, make another for the inside of card).

Die cut the Regal Lattice Gateway from Luxe Silver and from white with the inset but not the cutout frame for the inset. Glue these together, offsetting slightly. Add foam around the arched section to pop up off the card front but before adhering to the card front, add a piece of decorative paper a lighter aqua in color to show through the lattice inset. Now glue this “sandwich” to the card front, centering. Add pearls to the flourish ends as desired.

Stamp using black, die cut and color 2 flower stems and fern. Stamp Cherry Blossoms using Magenta Hue and London Fog or other gray, sponge pink flowers, die cut and form in mold. For the pink flowers, glue 2 blossoms together and insert a green stamen. For white flowers just add some pink Prills to single layers. Make a bouquet from the fern, flower stems and 3D flowers then pop up and glue to lattice area.

Stamp some of the small butterflies from the Small Floral Butterfly set, die cut and color. Add one of the bigger butterflies (Body only) to the upper part of Regal Lattice die cut then add a “trail” behind the butterfly with Swirl Pearls. The other bottom butterfly I made into a side view butterfly, glue only the body on leaving the wing/wings free.

Stamp the sentiment and cut fish tail ends then curve. Glue it to the upper part of the lattice above the bouquet.

Glitter the bouquet and the butterflies. Make a multi-loop bow from sheer ribbon and glue it to the bouquet ends.
