Instructions: The finished card measure 5 1/2 x 6 1/2 ". Cut a piece of white cardstock 11 x 6 1/2 inches. Fold at 5 1/2” to made a side folding card. Cut one piece of 5 1/2 x 6 1/2” in sheet #8B and glue it on the base. Cut one piece of 5 1/8 x 6 1/8” white cardstock and glue on the top of it a piece of 5 x 6 cut in sheet #9A (distress the edge of this paper before). Cut one piece of 4 1/4 x 5 1/4" white cardstock and cut over it one piece of 4 x 5 cut in sheet #8B (Distress the edge of this paper before). ( I did a sewing all around the paper). Cut one piece of 4 3/4 x 4” white cardstock and cut over it one piece of 4 5/8 x 4 3/4" cut in sheet #3A. (Distress the edge of this paper before). Glue all the papers on the base using 3D foam to give dimension.
Cut a white cardstock with Elegant Especially for you die. Stamp the coordinating stamp with Pink Peony ink and cut with the die. Glue it on the white diecut and glue this sentiment onto the front of the card.
Stamp your flowers from the French cottage’scape collection with coral ink onto white flower shaping paper, color the center with coral ink and shade the rest of the flower using vivid chartreuse ink. Color the reverse of the flowers and diecut with the coordinating die. (Do the same thing for the leaves and use the green ink vivid chartreuse). When dry, give further shape with Deluxe flower shaping kit tools. Put nice stamens in the center of the flowers. (I used 2 petals for each flower).
Put cheesecloth and sewing thread in the center of your card and glue your flowers and leaves over it. To add the finishing touch, simply add lace!
