Instructions: Layout is 12 x 12”. Find the background patterned paper. Fussy cut the border images out and set aside. Using white cardstock, tear edges along the shape of the fussy cut borders. Set aside. Die cut 2 the largest die from the Palace Gateway die from dark pink patterned paper, die cut 2 of the next size die from white cardstock. Adhere these pieces together. Take a full sheet of cardstock. This is just a base that will not be seen, so use a funky color...why not. Adhere the middle section of the background to the cardstock base. Add the torn white cardstock borders. Then add the layered die cut pieces to the top and bottom of the layout and trim off anything that hangs over the top and bottom of the layout. Add the fussy cut border strips using foam tape.
Die cut the large decorative piece from Decorative Circle Frames from white cardstock. Die cut the largest scallop circle from white cardstock and the plain circle that fits inside from green polka dot patterned paper. Adhere the circles together and adhere to the larger frame using foam tape. Cut this whole piece in half. Double mat the photo in white cardstock and adhere to the middle of the layout using foam tape. Add the half circle pieces to either side of the matted photo.
Stamp and die cut 2 of the Magnolia boughs using brown ink (StazOn Ink- Timber Brown). Add color to the images using Zig Clean Color Markers (Mustard, Olive) and pink ink (Seedless Preserves) and a water brush. Add Stickles to the middles of the flowers. Let dry. Add the boughs to either side of the matted photo. Add gems above and below the matted photo on the white cardstock die cut pieces.
