Instructions: The finished card measures 5 1/4 inches by 6 1/4 inches. Cut a piece of paper from white cardstock 10 1/2 by 6 1/4 inches and score at 5 1/4 inches on the width side. Fold to make a horizontal top folding card. Cut 1 piece of violet paper 5 x 6 inches and glue it on the base. Cut 1 piece of green paper 4 1/2 x 5 1/4 inches and paste this layer on top of the base card with 3D foam to give dimension. (Before pasting each of the paper, you can lightly trim the edge of these with a tool designed for this purpose or simply the blade of a scissor.)
Cut another piece in light pink paper 4 1/2 x 5 1/2 inches. With a dauber and ink, use the stencil to make pink dot on the background and glue it on the top layer. Die cut a sweetheart border with the appropriate die in a white cardstock and insert it between the layers, on each side of the card.
Stamp the Sweet Peony with archival Plum ink on white card stock (and the leaves from the leafy accent with the Fern Green Ink). Color it with the same color with a dauber. Cut it with the coordinate die. Shape the flowers by using the 3D Shaping Mold and give further shape with Deluxe Flower Shaping Kit tools. Add stamens in the center of the flowers. Made 3 flowers: 1 big, 1 medium and 1 small. Put a little bit of glue on the leaves and the flowers and dip them in the plastic microspheres to give them texture.
Put cheesecloth and sewing thread over it and glue your bouquet on the doilies. Arrange the flowers and leaves together to create a bouquet. Add wire to make a vine effect. Also add ruban and floral accessories.
Cut a sentiment from the paper collection and glue it with 3D foam next to your flowers. To add the finishing touch, simply add a hologram glitter on the card!
