Make the Tulip: Stamp the small flowers onto white card using melon mambo ink and shade from the centre out to create a gradual fade to white at the top using precision daubers. Die cut. Place the die cuts into the mold face down and spritz with water lightly, close the mold and run through the die cutting machine. Remove from the mold, put a small spot of glue in the centre of one set of petals and layer another set on top, push into the centre using the flower shaping kit and pull the paper up to create the tube shape of the flower. Allow to dry thoroughly. Make a hole in the centre of the flower and add 3 stamens to the centre of the flowers.
Make the leaves and filler flowers: Stamp the leaves onto Pear pizzazz card using black ink. Die cut and shade using old olive ink. Shape using the flower shaping tools. Stamp the 3 fuzzy head fillers and the small leaves a few times onto yellow paper from the collection, using Sahara sand ink. Diecut and shape. Secure the stamens using hot glue and remove excess stalk.
Stamp the vase in VersaMark onto highland heather card stock and cover in silver embossing powder. Remove excess and heat to set. Die cut and shade using highland heather ink, and shape the vase using the flower shaping tools.
Die cut the lacy diamond using paper from the collection. Stamp the sentiment onto the centre of the diamond using black ink, cover in clear embossing powder. Remove the excess and heat to set.
Die cut a further 5 of the lacy ends from the die. Add dries clear glue to the front of all the lacy die cuts and cover with crystal clear glitter. Remove the excess and set aside to dry.
Score an 8.5" x 4.25" piece of highland heather card at 4.25", score the front of the card diagonally top right to bottom left to create a twisted easel card base
Cut an oblong piece of highland heather cardstock approximate size of the lacy diamond, round off the corners and lightly edge with gorgeous grape ink. Glue the lacy diamond to the card leaving the edges unstuck to add dimension. Layer onto a slightly larger piece of yellow paper from the collection, round the corners and add lacy borders to the back of this layer on both sides. Cut a piece of highland heather card slightly larger than the topper you have created. Round the corners and edge this with gorgeous grape ink. Add the topper to the largest piece of card using foam pads.
Cut a piece of yellow paper, slightly smaller than 4.25" square, from the collection and adhere to the card base. Cut another 4" square piece of highland heather card and corner round one corner. Edge with gorgeous grape ink and adhere to the card base.
Cut a 3.5" piece of highland heather card, corner round one corner and ink the edges. Layer this onto slightly larger piece of yellow paper. Glue 2 lacy borders to the back of these 2 layers, overlapping them at the rounded corner, snip away any overlap so that the border appears as one piece. Glue these layers to the base of the card.
Adhere the final lacy border to a .5" strip of highland heather card, trim off any excess and mount onto the base of the card using foam pads as a stopper for the top of the card.
Using hot glue - position the vase. Use hot glue and dries clear glue to add the flowers, filler flowers and leaves.
