Instructions: The ready side-fold card measures 6" by 8". Cut and layer a piece of copper colored cardstock measuring 5 1/2" by 7 1/2" on the card base. To create the topmost layer, choose a paper from the designer paper collection and cut a piece measuring 5" by 51/2". To the longer edge adhere a half doily, die cut twice from white cardstock using medallion from Leafy Borders Die.

To create Vellum Peonies, stamp the images of large and small peonies from the Sweet Peony stamp set with Hero Arts White ink on Vellum and heat emboss with white heat embossing powder. Cut the flowers with it's coordinating die. You will need 2 large and one medium flower petal to create one bigger peony and 3 medium sized flower petals to create one small peony. Color the images with Seedless Preserves oxides for pink flowers and fossilized amber for Yellow Flower. Glue the layers with Aleene's Fast Grab Glue and set it aside for a minute. Prick a hole in the center of the flowers. Take 10-12 mixed color rock candy stamens, hold them in the center and wind a thread wire around the center of the stamens. Hold them tight and screw the wire and pass the bunch through the hole. Glue them tight using hot glue. Cut the threads of the stamens at the back and add a green color sepal made using Classic Sunflower Die on the back of the flower.

Filler Flowers: For filler flowers, stamp, cut, paint and shape few smallest flowers from Wildwood Floral Collection. Prick a hole in the center and add assorted bead stamens. 

For Butterfly, white heat set three butterfly images on vellum and cut 2 layers as shown. Color the butterflies using Seedless Preserves and Fossilized Amber oxide inks. Shape the top 2 layers and glue all the layers together. Add some Swarovski for extra interest. Heat the ready butterfly with a heat gun and without wasting time sprinkle Twinkling Spark Glitter. Dust extras and heat set it again. It will make glitter stick to the details of the butterfly.

For Leaves, Stamp the images of leaves from Classic Rose stamp, cut them using its coordinating die and paint them using Leaf Green and Olive Green Archival Inks. Shape them using Deluxe flower shaping tool and add Crystal Clear using an adhesive that dries clear.

For the sentiments, cut the tags from the designer paper collection, using Luggage and Tag die. Hang the tags on the side of the panel using Papericious Natural color twine. Once all the elements are ready, decorate the card by creating a bouquet on the right side, as shown and adhere the ready butterfly.
