Instructions: Cut a piece of white cardstock to 12 x 6" size, score and fold at 6". Cut a piece of deep purple paper from the Wild Aster paper collection to 5 7/8 x 5 7/8" size. Cut a lavender piece of paper from the collection to 5 11/16 x 5 11/16" size and lightly sponge the edges with Cactus Flower ink. Layer both paper panels onto the card base as pictured. Stamp the ‘Grateful’ sentiment from HCPC-3844 For My Friend Sentiments Cling Stamp Set in Majestic Violet ink onto the card as pictured. Use from the HCD1-7202 Album Tags and Accents Die to diecut 4 corner accents from white cardstock. Use from the HCD1-7213 Elegant Pocket Accents Die to diecut a deep purple accent background with die outline. Diecut the accent piece from white cardstock and layer onto purple accent background. Dab some Dries Clear glue onto sponge and apply over the accent piece and corner accents, then sprinkle with Rajni Chawla’s Crystal Clear and tap off. Attach the corner accents onto each corner of the card. Use dimensional adhesive to attach accent piece as shown.

Stamp the small set 6x and large set of asters 3x from HCPC-3887 Wild Aster Cling Stamp Set in Majestic Violet ink, and aster spray from HCPC-3888 Wild Aster Spray Cling Stamp Set in Cactus Flower and Leaf Green ink onto white cardstock and diecut with coordinating dies. Stamp the aster leaf 4x and small aster flower 2x from HCPC-3887 Wild Aster Cling Stamp Set in Leaf Green ink onto white cardstock and diecut with coordinating dies. 

Use the Stack and Store daubers to color the images. You will need 3 of the largest aster, 6 medium, and 6 small. Sponge the asters with Magenta Hue in the center and a light touch of Majestic Violet on the tips. Sponge 4 of small, 2 of the medium, and 1 of the large on the backside with the Majestic Violet ink. Use the Magenta Hue and Leaf Green on the aster spray. Use the Vivid Chartreuse and Leaf Green on the leaves. Add a soft touch of the Magenta Hue on the tips of leaves. 

Shape the asters and leaves with the stylus from Deluxe Flower Shaping kit. Assemble the asters together as pictured. Shape 3 of the small asters into bud form, and pair with green aster for a realistic bud look. Pierce a hole through the centers, and thread purple stamen through, attaching with hot glue. Cut apart the aster spray into 4 sections. Cut one of the leaves into 4 sections. Attach everything onto card as shown. Dab some Dries Clear glue onto a sponge, apply over asters and leaves, sprinkle with Rajni Chawla’s Crystal Clear and tap off.
