Instructions: Card size: 4 3/4 x 6 7/8”. Fold 6 X 8” white cardstock and place the largest Booklet Basic onto folded card with about 1/2" hanging off the top so that fold stays intact (see video). Cut another white full Booklet. Cut the largest Booklet Frame and book marker from Silver. Cut 1 size smaller Booklet from decorative paper. Use the Silver Leaf Pen on the Large and smaller Booklet Basic (don’t use it on the card base as it will not show).
Stamp the sentiment using Magenta Hue, on the right side of book (make sure book is right side up). Now glue the silver frame to the card base making sure to line up the solid part of frame with the base. Glue the white card front to the frame then glue the decorative page with sentiment to the front, centering. Glue the book marker at the top.
Stamp the large and small petunias using Forget Me Not, sponge with the same and with Magenta, die cut and form in the Shaping Mold (see video). While still moist squeeze petals between your fingers in a pleating motion. Allow all blossoms to dry completely (they will become nice and stiff so that they keep their shape). Punch each in the center and layer at least 2 of the same size together for each flower. Pierce the centers and insert the stamen, rock candy first then insert 1 medium beaded.
Stamp leaves using Fern Green, sponge with Leaf Green, die cut, shape in mold then gloss with Lacquer. Stamp petunia border using black, die cut and color with Copics. Glue leaves and flowers to bottom and up left side. Glue part of the border to right side of book page. Glitter all the flowers and randomly glitter card.
Cut pieces of blue ribbon, angle the ends, fold in half and insert in between some flowers, and at both ends of flower spray.
