Instructions: Score and fold a 15" x 5.5" piece of white card at 7.5" to create a 5.5 x 7.5" tent fold card base.

Cut a 6" x 4" paper from the pad and edge with frosted aqua chalk cloud ink. Layer onto a piece of mirror card approx. .5" larger, and then onto a larger white piece of card and another larger piece of mirror card. Adhere to the card base using collall glue and strong double-sided tape.

Make the flower: stamp the large peony twice in VersaMark and cover with silver embossing powder, remove excess and heat to set. Repeat with the largest of the small peony flower. Colour the flowers using the colour cloud inks. Die cut the flowers and colour the reverse. Spray with water and screw the petals up, leave for approximately 5 mins and carefully open, continue to shape using the groove golf tools. Layer the flower using 2 large, 2 medium and 1 small set of petals. Glue an acrylic bead into the centre of the flower, place moondust nuvo drop in the centre of the bead and cover with glitter, remove excess and allow to dry.

Die cut 2 of the swirls from the cut mat create 1A die and adhere as shown, snipping as necessary to reach from the top of the card to the bottom. Hot glue the flower into place.

Stamp the sentiment on to coordinating paper using versafine black ink, and die cut using the ornamental tags die. Die cut the fancy outer die in white card and remove the edges. Layer the sentiment on top and add to the card using foam pads.
