Instructions: The bordered 12 x 12” piece of paper is the background. Cut a light pink patterned circle that is 8.5”. Distress the edge of the circle and adhere to the middle of the layout. Mat the 3 x 4” photos in white cardstock and set aside for now. Cut 2 dark pink squares that are 2”, and cut the diamond patterned squares from the full pattern (2). Adhere the dark pink squares diagonally near the middle of the layout and add the green pattered squares using foam tape. Add the matted photos to the layout using foam tape. Find and die cut out the light-yellow mini tag and add above the matted photo, add a burlap string bow.
Stamp and die cut 3 sets of the large and medium Magnolias using grey ink (Archival- Shadow Grey) onto Deluxe Flower Shaping Paper. Stamp and die cut 5 sets of the smallest Magnolias again using grey ink. I like to use a ton of leaves, so I used 3 green large, 2 large gold, 5 small green and 6 small gold. Stamp and die cut large and small leaves onto gold shimmer cardstock using brown ink (Staz On- Timber Brown). Stamp and die cut small and large leaves onto white cardstock using brown ink. Add color to the leaves using 2 tones of green ink (Archival- Olive, Fern) and daubers. Add color to the middle of the flowers using pink ink (Distress Oxide- Seedless Preserves) and daubers. Shape the flowers and leaves using the coordinating 3D shaping mold.
Assemble the flowers and add gold micro beads to the middles using liquid adhesive. Let dry. Add the flowers and leaves around half of the circle, having the larger flowers in the middle and the smaller ones at the ends. Add white buttons around the flower clusters.
