Instructions: Cover an 8 x 5 3/4 inch card blank with one of the pretty papers from the Wild Aster Paper Collection. Cut out a pink paper panel 5 x 7 1/2 inches, mat onto a piece of white pearl paper cut to 5 1/4 x 7 3/4 inches.

Take the straight edge from the Decorative Pocket Accents Die and cut a slit in the pink matted paper about 2 1/2 inches from the base of the paper.

Die cut the decorative edge from the Decorative Pocket Accents Die in white pearl card. Glue this over the slit. Adhere the whole mat onto the front of the card. Be careful not to glue the base of the matt as you will be putting a tag through the slit, just glue around the edges.

Die cut two large tags from the Album Tags and Accents Die Set, once in white card and once in pretty paper. Adhere the pretty paper tag onto the white tag. Die cut another slightly smaller tag and ink around the edges in plum ink. Place the smaller inked tag into the cut slit, glue it down. Slide the larger tag into the slit, over the smaller tag.

Stamp the Wild Aster Scroll from the Wild Aster Scroll and Cluster Cling Stamp Set in plum ink. Colour in with your chosen colouring- in medium. Die cut with the coordinating die and adhere to the front of the large tag.

Stamp with Magenta Hue ink, the Wild Asters from the Wild Aster Cling Stamp Set. You will need lots! Stamp the leaves with Olive ink. Colour in using the daubers and Magenta Hue ink for the flowers and light green ink for the leaves. Die cut with the coordinating dies and shape.

Layer the blooms together with glue, staggering the petals as you go. I added three layers to the large blooms and two layers for the smaller blooms. Adhere the Asters and leaves around the card being careful not to glue the large tag down as you want to be able to take it out.

Stamp with Plum ink, the Aster Spray from the Wild Aster Spray Cling Stamp Set, colour-in and die cut with the coordinating die, make three sprays. Adhere these around the flowers.

Add Go Man Go Prills to the centers of the Asters using Dries Clear Glue. When dry, using the same glue, add lots of Crystal Ultrafine Transparent Glitter to the flowers.
