Die cut the regal pocket accents die in white card and adhere to the top left corner of the card base. Cut a 6.25 x 4.25" piece of white card and a 6 x 4" paper from the collection, layer these together and adhere to the centre of the card base using foam pads. Die cut the smallest oval from the Regal Frame die and adhere to the front of the card using foam pads. Die cut the recipients age x 2 and layer onto the bottom of the oval.
Make the sweet shoppe: Stamp the image onto white stamping card using early espresso ink, cover in clear embossing powder, remove excess and heat to set. Watercolour the sweet shoppe using early espresso ink and diecut. Die cut 2 further sweet shoppe using soft suede cardstock and layer the 3 pieces together with the water coloured image on top.

Adhere the Sweet shoppe cart to the right side of the card. Stamp the sweet treats (including flower buckets) in black memento ink onto white card and colour with Copic pens. Die cut and adhere to the cart using dries clear glue and foam pads.
Make the flowers & leaves: Stamp the cherry blossoms onto the flower shaping paper using soft suede ink colour in rose blush colour cloud ink and die cut. Stamp the leaves in soft suede and colour using granny apple green and die cut. Colour the backs of the flowers and leaves and place face down into the mold, place the top of the mold onto the diecuts and run through the die cutting machine. Remove from the mold and allow to dry. Place the flowers into a box lid or onto some scrap paper and spritz over with cosmic shimmer mist, allow to dry again. Thread 12 stamens into the centre of each large flower, 8 into the centre of the medium flowers and 1 into the small flower and secure into place with a little hot glue. Snip off the excess stamen stalks.
Position and adhere the leaves and blossoms to the base card using hot glue.
