Instructions: Card size: 5 x 7”. Cut a magenta color decorative paper to 4 3/4 x 6 3/4" then glue to 5 x 7” card base. Cut a gold Intricate Swirl Frame. Cut the center of frame from white then stamp and emboss with gold, Happy Mother’s Day. Glue gold frame to magenta paper then glue sentiment to the center.
Stamp large and small petunias using Vibrant Fuchsia, sponge with the same, die cut, sponge the backs then shape in the mold (see video). Squeeze petals together into tight pleats while moist. Allow to dry completely. Layer several layers together, use at least 2 of the same size before progressively getting smaller. When you get to the smaller insides of flower just start using 1 of each. Flower will be very full. Pierce the centers then insert stamen, small first then wired medium (dye small stamen with alcohol ink to match beaded stamen).
Stamp leaves using Fern Green, sponge with Leaf Green and fuchsia, die cut then shape in mold (see video). Gloss leaves with Lacquer. Glitter all flowers.
Arrange leaves and flowers to left bottom corner and top right corner. Randomly glitter card front.
