Instructions: Card size: 4 3/4 x 6 3/4". See video for making shaped cards with the Decorative Circle Frames set. Cut another front from pink cardstock. Cut the large decorative die from white, the first eyelet circle from pink, next size down from white, next size down from pink. Cut a Fun Foam sheet with a circle die to fit inner pink Eyelet Circle. Stamp sentiment using Rose Madder on white then cut with a circle die 2”. Stack and glue die cuts and die cut foam ending with the sentiment. Sponge front with adhesive then glitter with ultrafine.
Stamp using Rose Madder the Zinnia medium and small sizes, sponge with Pink Peony, die cut then sponge edges with Rose Madder. Stamp small leaves and smallest Zinnia with Fern Green, sponge with Leaf Green then die cut (the green Zinnia will be used for the buds). Stamp the smallest Zinnia using Buttercup, sponge then die cut. Use the 2 molds to shape all leaves and Zinnia. The buttercup Zinnia were partially cut apart and shaped with the Groove Golf Tools, making little cylinders. Glue 4-5 layers of Zinnia together then glue the little cylinders of yellow straight up in the centers. Add Prills with glue. For the “buds”, make sure both sides of the Zinnia are colored. Use just 1 or 2 Rose Madder small Zinnia and use the Groove Golf Tools to make them all cylinder shaped. Put glue all over the insides and squeeze together then hold till set. Add a small green Zinnia to the outside, adding glue to the petals and squeeze over bud till set. Add Prills (optional). Glitter all the flowers with Rajni’s Crystal Clear. For the leaves, mix Shimmer additive with Lacquer then brush onto leaves. Insert Leaves where needed while arranging flowers on the card front. Add the little ladybug (optional) to one of the leaves.
