Instructions: Card size: 6 1/8 x 6 1/4". Start with an Ivory card folded to 5 1/2 x 6” (side fold). Cut the front panel with the plain edge of the Fleur Border Basics then cut a border for that edge with the decorative Fleur Border Basics. Cut decorative paper for the inside panels (matching edge of front and 5 1/2 x 6 for the inside back). Cut 3 Decorative Pocket Accents out of ivory for the inside panel.
Stamp the French Cottage door full stamp on the front panel. Stamp it again on white, die cut then color. Pop up the door frame on top of the stamped image on card. Glue the door in. Glue Fleur Border to the top. Glue decorative paper inside then glue Decorative Pocket Accents, one on top (without slot, cut it off), glue 2 together matching slot cuts. Cut another piece of decorative paper 2” X 5 1/2", glue it to the back of bottom Decorative Pocket then glue the die sets plus decorative paper to the inside as a pocket.
Stamp small flowers using Majestic Violet, sponge, die cut and push in the center to shape, making little bells. Insert 1 small white pearl stamen folded into each. Stamp using black: 2 planters, porch light and leafy stem, die cut then color. Pop the planters to each side, glue the porch light onto top left. On the leafy stem, make small cuts in it all along the right (bottom) side so that it will curve easier. Glue it over the arched doorway. Glue flowers to leafy stem and to the 2 planter “trees”. Glitter all the flowers, gloss the leaves.
Find the tag you like on the decorative paper and die cut it. Die cut a mat from ivory. Sponge the edges and stamp sentiment using Majestic Violet, at an angle. Tie a ribbon on the top of tag and insert tag into inside pocket.
