Instructions: Cut white cardstock to 9 x 6 1/4”, score and fold at 4 1/2”. Using the 4th to the largest circles, diecut along right side of the card base. Cut blue paper from Delightful Daffodil paper collection to 6 1/8" x 4 3/8", diecut circle using same circle die, ink edges with Manganese Blue ink using a Stack & Store Dauber, then adhere directly onto card base. Cut another piece from paper the collection to 6" x 4 1/4”. Once again, use the same circle die to diecut the panel, then score this panel every 1/8”, to create a textured, vertically lined panel. Ink the edges with Leaf Green ink then adhere this onto card using foam adhesives.

Diecut two Teardrop Lattice Gateway frames from white cardstock, use scissors to snip apart the rounded arch from both of these arche die cuts (reserve one of remaining pieces for later use as indicated below), color these two half circles using Rose Madder ink and Stack and Store dauber, then use Dries Clear glue to connect the two pieces together creating a dimensional circle. Snip off any overlapping interior pieces if needed. Apply glue onto a sponge, dab randomly onto circle and sprinkle with Baby’s Breath glitter. Use foam adhesive to attach circle onto circular opening on card base. Using one of the remaining pieces from the Teardrop Arch, separate the two lattice sides using a scissors, this will give you two lattice strips about 2 1/2” in length. After shaping each strip lightly with the stylus handle, glue one piece along the bottom left side of card, then cut the second lattice strip in half adhering one on the left and the other half along the top right as shown.

Stamp the daffodil from HCPC-3943 using Rose Madder on the flower and Leaf Green on the foliage, onto white cardstock and diecut. From HCPC-3944 stamp the daffodil using the same inks as above, the hyacinth trio and single hyacinth x2 using Jet Black ink onto white cardstock and diecut.

For the daffodils color the petals with Buttercup ink, then use Fantasix along with dauber to add Rose Madder ink along the perimeter of the center cup shape of the daffodil. Apply Vivid Chartreuse and Leaf Green on the foliage. Use French Ultramarine onto all the grape hyacinths, and Vivid Chartreuse along with Leaf Green on the foliage. Use Manganese Blue and Deep Purple inks along with a dauber to add color variation onto the hyacinths as desired. Color the backside of the vellum butterfly using Buttercup and Rose Madder inks.

Use scissors to remove daffodil buds, also make small cuts into the sides of the cup shaped daffodil center allowing for some shape and dimension. Separate the hyacinth as well.
