Cut another piece of the white flower shaping paper 6 3/4 x 4 13/16". Using from the HCD2-749 Cut Mat Create 1A Die, diecut the largest rectangle from the center of the lavender and white panel so that they align when layered on top of each other. Stamp the floral sprigs from HCPC-31022 Iris Garden Accents in a combination of French Ultramarine & Leaf Green on the leaf and Cactus Flower on the floral part. Stamp off the image on scrap paper each time before stamping onto bottom and left side of white frame panel as shown. Sponge the edges of lavender frame with Cactus Flower ink and the white frame with Garden Patina ink. Also sponge the center panel edges with the Garden Patina ink. Sponge some of the Leaf Green on the white panel over the area where the iris will be placed on the card, so this creates a dimensional backdrop for it. Attach the two frames on top of each other as shown.

Stamp the largest and second largest iris petals from HCPC-31020 Iris Garden Petals Cling Stamp Set in Cactus Flower ink and then Majestic Violet on some areas of stamp and onto Flower Shaping paper. You’ll need 2 sets of petals of each one. Stamp the small iris image from HCPC-31022 Iris Garden Accents Cling Stamp Set in same colors for the flower and French Ultramarine and Leaf Green ink on the stem. Stamp 3 of the flower sprigs from same set in same color tones. Stamp one of the sprigs in French Ultramarine and Leaf Green only. Stamp the budding iris in the same tones as purple sprigs. Stamp the leaves in French Ultramarine and Leaf Green ink. You’ll need 1 large leaf and 3 small ones. Die cut all the images with the coordinating dies. Stamp the ‘You are so thoughtful’ in a combo of Cactus Flower and Majestic Violet and then cut the words apart into separate sections. 

Sponge the centers of iris petals with Sunflower ink. Then use the Pink Peony over petals on both front and backside. Sponge the Garden Patina intermittently along the edges, then use the Cactus Flower along the edges as well. Add a light touch of the Majestic Violet. Sponge the iris images with the same. For 3 of the sprigs, use Cactus Flower and Garden Patina on the floral and a touch of Garden Patina and Leaf Green on the leaf. Use only Garden Patina and Leaf Green on the blue sprig. Use the same purple and green tones on the budding iris. Use the Leaf Green and French Ultramarine on the leaves. Use the yellow sponge to apply a light touch of Crystal Lacquer on the iris petals and let dry. 

Use the HCFB1-5014 3D Iris Shaping Mold to shape the petals and leaves. Use the shaping stylus from Deluxe Flower Shaping Kit to shape the rest of the images. Using the hot glue, assemble the iris petals together to form 2 irises. Use one of the light green stem floral wire and attach the irises onto it as desired. Attach the frame onto card with dimensional adhesive, and place the rectangle panel through the center opening onto card. Attach the iris arrangement onto lower left of card and attach the leaves, sprigs and budding iris onto it as shown. Sponge the edges of sentiment with Cactus Flower and attach onto card as shown.

Apply the Dries Clear glue onto yellow sponge and dab over card as desired, then sprinkle with Crystal Clear glitter. Apply the glue over yellow centers of petals and sprinkle with Mustard glitter.
