Instructions: The size of this tent fold card is 6 inches wide x 8 inches high. Taking the white card stock, make a tent fold card to the above measurements. Find the sheet #12B from the paper collection and cut this a little smaller than the card base, then adhere this to the card base using the double sided tape or clear drying adhesive.

To make all the elements needed for this card: Start with the sentiment by using the sentiment die from the Ornamental Tags die set. Die cut this 4-5 times from the white card stock. Adhere this together ready to use. Using the misti stamping tool, the white card stock, the library green inkpad and stamps needed from the sets listed, stamp the large urn, the fillers (2-3 each), the dahlias and leaves. Each dahlia flower has one large and one small petal layer. Bring color to the elements by using the ink colors listed. Greens for the leaves and stalks, pinks and purples for the flowers and berries. The dahlias are colored using the saffron for the centers and the red geranium for the petals. Die cut all using the matching die sets. The urn remains white but is finished with glitter.

Bring shape to the elements by using the essential shaping tools, the dahlia 3D mold and the water mister. When the dahlia petals are still moist from the water spritzing from using the 3d mold, pinch the petal ends to pleat. When dry apply clear drying glue with the hydra sponge to the petal ends also to the leaves then dip into glitter. Put aside to dry. When dry tap off any lose glitter ready for use. The dahlia centers are filled with clear drying glue and green micro beads. Make a triple bow from the organza ribbon.

Arrange the elements in place as shoen. First adhere the urn, then the dahlias. Adhere the fillers and leaves making a flower arrangement on the card. Adhere the organza ribbon in place using the hot glue gun. Last, adhere the sentiment in place.
