Instructions: The ready top fold card measures 8" by 6". To prepare the white card base, cut one piece measuring 8" by 6" and the second piece 8 1/2" by 6". Score the second piece at 1/2" on the longer side and glue the first piece on top. For the topmost layer, choose the pattern paper from the paper collection and cut 71/4" by 5 1/4" and distress the edges using sharp scissors. Next, glue the panel first on white cardstock and then on the deep purple pattern paper, making the border of 1/18" on all the sides. Add dimensions using foam tapes.
Die cut one piece each of fancy frames from white cardstock and pattern paper using Intricate Swirl Frames Die. Stack both the die cuts together keeping the colored one on top to add extra strength. Layer the die-cut on the ready card panel as shown.

Spritz water and shape the flowers using golf groove tools. Prepare 3 large flowers of 2 petals each and 5-6 filler flowers using the one smallest petal each. For the flower centers, cut a strip of paper, color it using Buttercup Yellow, and thinly fringe the strip using scissors. Roll the fringed strip between your fingers and add prills on the tips using an adhesive that dries clear.
