Instructions: This finished tent card measures 8 1/2” wide x 6 3/4” high (21.6cm x 17cm). Find the design paper in the paper collection and add color to the edges with the Crushed velvet ink and the foam inking tool or a dauber.

Taking the corner die and the white card die cut x4 for each corner. Adhere for each corner, 4 layers together then apply the crushed velvet ink with the inking tool or a dauber. Taking the versa-mark, randomly swipe the corner element with the pad so it does not get covered completely.  Dip the corner into the gold embossing powder then use the heating tool to set the gold. This method is used for all the gold embossing on the elements in this card. Taking the white card and the small swirl corners, die cut x2 of these. Color and gold emboss the same as the corners. Adhere the swirl borders to each side of the card. Taking the larger booklet frame die and the booklet basic die to match also the middle-sized booklet frame die and the white card, die cut all once. Taking the inks crushed velvet, pale fig and the inking tool, bring color to the die cuts. Randomly gold emboss the lace edge of the frames. For the sentiment, take the sentiment from the for my friend sentiments stamp set and stamp this using the gold embossing powder to the right side of the page. Taking the score-pal make a fold down the center of the pages. Curl the pages by wrapping them around a glue bottle and your hands. Adhere in place using clear drying glue and the craft foam cut into strips, so the curl stays in place and the pages are lifted apart from each other. 

To make the Asters, stamp the flowers and leaves using the Library Green ink. Bring colour to the stamping using Archival inks: Leaf green and the zig markers; Light violet and green. Once the colouring is done, die cut the shapes. Bring shape to the flowers and leaves by using the tools in the 3D flower shaping kit. To apply the prills: apply clear drying glue to the flower centres then pour the prills over the flower. With the shaping tool press down on the prills so the prills go into the glue, set aside to dry. You are doing two layers, so the under layer does not have prills on them, only the top layer. The leaves are stamped, coloured and die cut. By using the 3D flower shaping tools shape the leaves from the back to how you want them.

Die cut with the white card 2x the swirls. Color these with the crushed velvet ink. Trim as needed so they will lay across the book from left to right as a base for the flower cluster. Adhere the flower cluster and leaves using the hot glue gun. Trim the flower sprays as fillers and adhere in the arrangement where needed.

To the lower corners of the card, adhere 2x leaves as shown then a double aster flower in the center of the two leaves. To finish the card apply the diamond stickles to the flower sprays and flower tips.
