Instructions: Score a landscape A4 sheet of sahara sand card stock at 3” and 6”. Cut 2.75” off the bottom of the card and fold the 2 pieces into zig zags.

Select pink and blue papers from the collection and cut slightly smaller pieces of paper for each panel of the card. Edge the pink paper with Rococo Rose in and the blue papers with Balmy Blue ink. And adhere to the panels of the card.

Adhere the shortest panel from the 2.75” card to the back of the card as shown and the longer 2.75” panel to the front of the card. 

Make the flowers: Stamp using melon mambo ink onto the flower shaping card. Colour the centre using saffron ink and the outer petal with princess pink ink. Die cut. Edge the petals with berry burst ink. Use chic magenta watercolour paint to colour the reverse of the petals and shape the petals whilst still damp.

Make the leaves:- Stamp onto the flower shaping paper using old olive ink. Colour using granny apple green ink, die cut and colour reverse with the granny apple green. Edge the front very lightly with shaded spruce ink. Spritz with water and shape using the flower shaping kit.

Diecut solid shapes of the 2 largest swirly accent sprays in sahara sand card. Die cut the largest 2 swirly accent sprays from pink paper from the collection and add a little Rococo Rose ink. Adhere the paper diecuts to the solid shapes and adhere these to the front section of the card base.

Stamp the sentiment onto blue paper from the collection using Rococo Rose ink, cover with clear embossing powder, remove excess and heat to set. Diecut using the Album tags, edge with Balmy Blue ink and adhere to a sahara sand eyelet diecut. Add to the card using foam pads.

Die cut 2 of the smaller Swirly accents from sahara sand card and adhere to the top and bottom of the back card panel.

Position and hot glue the flowers and leaves to the card and when the hot glue has cooled add Silver moondust glitter drops and silver lining prills to create the flower centres.
