Instructions: Card size is 7 x 5". Score and fold 7 x 10" Petal Pink Cardstock at 5" on the long side. Using the largest Majestic Swirl Frames Die, place die just above the fold and diecut to create shaped card base. Use the same die to cut another piece of Petal Pink cardstock and adhere to card base. Use the same die set to cut decorative die from white cardstock x2, adhere one to inside card. Spritz the other with Sheer Shimmer Craft Spray – Sparkle and adhere to the card front. Cut the next size die from Petal Pink cardstock and adhere to card base using dimensional tape. Stamp the ‘Happy Anniversary’ sentiment on white cardstock using Tea Rose ink, diecut using the next size die, spritz with Sheer Shimmer Craft Spray – Sparkle and adhere using dimensional tape.
Stamp the small and Large Zinnias 3x each on Deluxe Flower Shaping Paper using Archival Tea Rose ink. Color them using Archival Tea Rose, Buttercup and Coastal Coral inks, diecut using the coordinating dies and ink the edges with Tea Rose. Stamp some of the smallest flowers using Archival Buttercup, color with the same ink, diecut and lightly ink the edges using Coastal Coral ink. Stamp the leaves using Archival Olive ink, color using Vivid Chartreuse, diecut and ink the edges using Olive ink.
Shape all of the flowers in the Large and Small Zinnia Shaping molds and finish shaping using the Deluxe Flower Shaping Kit and the Groove Golf Tool set. Spray all the petals with Sheer Shimmer Spritz – Sparkle. Use three petals the same size, one petal one size smaller and one of the small buttercup petals for the Coral flower. Adhere the petals together using hot glue. Build up the flower by adding a little puddle of hot glue between each layer and letting it set before adhering the next layer. Add a puddle of hot glue to the flower center and add the Heart of Gold prills.
Adhere the flower and leaves to the card front using hot glue. Brush some Wink of Stella here and there on the flowers to create even more shimmer.
