Instructions: This card when finished, measures 6 1/2” x 8 1/4”. Taking the white card stock make a hinged tent fold card base to the above measurements.

Find a sheet for the matting of the card front in the paper collection. Trim this a little smaller than the card base measurement.

Stamp, color, die cut and shape the daffodils, Hyacinths and borders used for this card. 1x straight boarder, 1x each daffodil size 2x the smaller Hyacinth and 1x each size of the 3D Daffodils. These Daffodils are clipped in at the flower edge so they curl over easier. See the color list for colors used.

To make the sentiment, use the white card stock, the sentiment from the Elegant Gateway Sentiments stamp set and the banner die from the Ticket and Tags die set. Stamp the sentiment then die cut the shape. Taking the gold paper, cut this to fit across the card so it is a matting for the sentiment.
