Instructions: Card size: 6 x 6”. Start with white cardstock 12 x 6”, score and fold in half to make 6 x 6 card. Score the left side again at 3” then fold back to make a Z fold card. Cut a decorative paper panel to fit each card panel (2 7/8” x 5 7/8”, 2 7/8 x 5 7/8”, and 5 7/8 x 5 7/8”). Glue the decorative paper to each panel.
Cut a 4” square from white cardstock and from decorative paper, glue them together and round the corners. Cut a square decorative die cut using Butterfly Kisses out of white then glue it to the 4” square.
Cut 6 corner die cuts using Elegant Pocket Accents Die set, glue 1 to each corner of the square inside and the other 2 on the 2 corners on the left of the 3” top. Cut 1 Majestic Swirl Frame and cut off all but 1 long side. Glue it to the fold line of the top (split the die cut if needed to fit both corners, it won’t show because the 4” square goes over the center. The square is now adhered to the top only by adhering dimension pop ups or tape to the left 2” of the 4” square. Square should be centered horizontally and vertically.
Stamp the “Happy Birthday” sentiment onto white using Magenta Hue then die cut outer side only. Glue it to the center of the inside panel. Glue pearls to each corner piece.
Stamp both sizes (2 large, 3 smaller) of the Dahlia using Magenta Hue, die cut then sponge the petal edges. See video for flower shaping, use the Dahlia mold. Insert stamen in the center. Stamp leaves using Leaf Green, sponge with Vivid Chartreuse, die cut then form in the mold. Brush leaves with a combination of lacquer and shimmer additive. Sponge glue onto flower petals and sprinkle with Rajni’s Crystal Clear.
Cut a pair of Swirly Border Accents out of white. Arrange flower, Swirly Borders and leaves on to the 4” square left side. Finish the card by stamping on white using Magenta Hue the sentiment “Hope your day is amazing!”, cut it out with the smallest possible oval then pop it up on the right top corner of the 4” square. Add pearls and glitter as desired.
