Instructions: Cut out 3 pieces of white cardstock, two at 9 x 5 1/2" and one at 7 x 5 1/2". Take one piece of the 9 x 5 1/2" and score this at 2" on both short sides. Then put Scor-tape on those flaps on the back side of the paper. Take a piece of the patterned paper and cut it at 5 1/4 x 4 3/4", glue this in the center in between the score lines, fold the flaps up. Cut a person out of the photo and place him on the fence. Now take the small piece of 7" and score it at 1" on both short sides. Take the 5th rectangle die and center it on that card then run it through your diecutting machine. Take the flowers and greenery you made and place them behind this opening and a piece of a photo if you like, then fold the flaps to the back, put Scor-tape on them and place them in the score lines from the first long piece you just made and tape them down.

Take the 2nd big piece and score 2" on each short side, take the 6th rectangle from the set and center this on the piece and run it through the machine. Fold the flaps to the back and place this on top of the other 2 then tape it down. Get the rest of your greenery and flowers and decorate the front - you can also use a part of a photo. Cut also a piece of the design paper out with the flower border on it and glue this on the front!

Flowers: Stamp the flowers and leaves of all the sets I mentioned with Bamboo Leaves ink and color the green with Leaf Green and the flowers with Buttercup and Vibrant Fuchsia. Die cut all the flowers with the coordinating dies. For the hyacinth shaped flower, you dab some glue on it and then you put some prills on top and let it dry. Stamp 1 small peony flower with Vibrant Fuchsia ink and die cut, color the center with Buttercup and the ends of the flower with the Vibrant Fuchsia ink, shape it on your Deluxe Flower Shaping kit. Make a hole in the center and place the stamens in it. Stamp some small flowers from the Fashionista set color them very lightly with Vibrant Fuchsia ink, die cut and shape them on your mat, place some crystals in the tiny flowers.
