Instructions: The finished card measures 8 x 6 1/4". Cut the card base in a white card stock to 8 x 12 1/2" and score at 6 1/4" on the longer side. Fold to make an horizontal folding card. Cut a 3 3/4 x 6 1/8" piece of green paper from the Cottage Garden Collection and glue it to the card base. Then cut out another piece of pattern paper 3 5/16 x 5 9/16" and glue under this, a piece of white paper just a little bit larger. Glue it on the base card too with a 3D foam to give dimension to your card.
Stamp 2 wild aster spray flowers with the Leaf Green archival ink on white card stock. Cut it with the appropriate die. Made some shiny dots on it with the Stickles ranger Lime Green and Blue Waterfall.
Stamp 2 vines from the large Classic Petunia with the Leaf Green archival ink on white card stock. Cut it with the appropriate die. Color them with blue and green.
Stamp 3 big petals from the Large classic petunia onto the foam paper with blue ink. Color lightly the petals in the center on both sides. Put the 3 petals together with 8 stamens in the center. Heat the flowers with your heatgun and twist the petals with your fingers when they still hot. Fix them with glue gun. Do it twice to have 2 flowers.
Use the archival ink leaf green to stamp and color leaves. Die cut and use the mold to give them a nice shape.
Put cheesecloth and sewing thread in the middle of your card. Glue over it your vine and aster spray. Glue your flower over it. Put the leaves under your flowers. Put wire string, ribbon, and lace between your flowers.
