Instructions: Card size is 6.5 x 7.5". Select the topper picture from the paper collection and trim to 3.75" x 4.5". Adhere to black card and trim to leave a thin black border. Die cut the petite pocket die in black card, dab glue over and cover in transparent glitter, remove excess and set aside to dry.

Cut a piece of the patterned paper as shown, so that a complete square is visible around the edge - 10 squares x 12 squares. Adhere this to black card leaving a thin border. Layer the Topper centrally onto the card and add the petite pocket die cut centrally to the top of the card, trim away any excess.

Score a 13" x 7.5" piece of white card at 6.5" to create the card base. Cut a piece of black card slightly smaller than the card base and a 6" x 7" piece of blue paper from the collection. Layer these onto the card base using dries clear glue. Add the topper to the card using foam pads.

Die cut the sentiment and cover in 3D crystal lacquer. Set aside to dry.

Make the flowers: Stamp the flowers onto white card stock using berry burst ink. Colour with princess pink chalk cloud ink and die cut. Colour the back of the flowers with the chalk cloud ink and place the flowers into the mold facedown, spritz lightly with water and place the top on the mold - run through the diecutting machine. Remove the flowers from the mold and make a hole in the centre of the 2 largest flowers. Thread 10 stamens through the largest flowers and 3 through the smallest. Using the flower shaping tools, press down into the flowers to lift the petals and dot with white nuvo drops

Make the leaves: Stamp onto mint macaron cardstock using mint macaron ink and die cut. Shade the edges of the leaf using mint macaron ink and place face down into the mold. Spritz lightly with water, place the top on the mold and run through the die cutting machine. Remove from the mold and allow to dry.

Position the sentiment flowers and leaves onto the card using hot glue.
