Instructions: For Card Base: Card base is 6.5 x7" on white card. Cut a pattern paper from collection measuring 6.25 x 6.75". Attach to card base. Using the Fleur Border Basics set, cut on a similar pattern using the straight curve so paper measures approximately 4.75 x 5.75". Once you have this curve cut on the pattern paper; take one of the pattern dies and cut a border on white card and mat this under the curve border. Cut out the Decorative Medallion Die on a similar pattern paper and adhere this behind the curved border so it is on a bit of an angle. Now cut out the Botanic Window on a complementing pattern paper. Stamp the sentiment for today's quote on the front of the window using plum archival ink. Adhere this in front and on top of all die cuts listed above and as shown in photo.

Stamp out 4 sets of the large peony using plum archival ink on white card. Stamp and cut out the 3 sets of the small peony using plum archival ink on white card. Color centers of the flowers with sunflower archival ink and outer edges with Plum archival ink. Pierce in center with paper piercer to make room for stamen and foam buds. Stamp and cut one set of the smallest peony using plum archival ink on white card, we will be using these as fillers. Color same as large peony and pierce center to make room for the wired stamen.

Stamp and cut four large peony leaves using leaf green and color with fern green and leaf green archival ink. Stamp and cut out two classic rose vines and use as detail layers under the flower bunches.

To mold the flowers, I have cut an older molding mat in half and hot glued it together to form a double layer molding mat. This allows some deeper shaping abilities. Insert the foam bud in the center of the second largest peony placing glue in center, attach another layer of flower then add 2 layers of the largest peony. Note: Color the foam buds using the sunflower archival ink. These will go in the centers. Create two large flowers this size. Create three flowers using two layers of the small peony inserting the foam buds. Do not throw away the cut off wire stems.

Take the stylus tool and wrap the cut off wire around the stylus to form a curly wire piece, insert these throughout the flower clusters to add some detail. Detail all the flowers and leaves with crystal clear. Complete card as I have shown in my sample.
