Instructions: The finished card measures 4 3/4 x 6 3/4". Fold a piece of white cardstock the size of card then place the die so that it hangs over the folded edge about 1/8” (just so that it does not cut the whole fold off), cut through both layers for your base. Cut another coral top but this time cutting the full die on a single layer in the paper. Glue the full die cut to the card base matching all bottom and side curves. Do the samething for the back with the sheet 10B. Repeat for the inside of the card. Ink the edge of the card with the Coastal Coral ink and a dauber.
Cut a Gold Luxe layer with the inner decorative die, glue it onto the front. Also cut in paper #2B the largest eyelet circle from the same kit and then glue it on the gold paper. Don’t forget to ink the edge with the coral ink before.
Stamp your flowers with coral ink onto white flower shaping paper, color the center with yellow ink and shade the rest of the flower using coral. Color the reverse of the flowers and diecut with the coordinate die. Place facedown into the flower shaping mold, spritz with water and run through the diecutting machine to shape. (Do the same thing for the leaves and use the green ink vivid chartreuse). When dry, give further shape with Deluxe flower shaping kit tools. Put glue in the center of the flowers and add coral prills. (I used 3 larges flowers + 1 smaller for each flower). Take two of the smaller flowers and color it in yellow. Use the tool to shape the petal to make a flower bud.
Put cheesecloth and sewing thread in the center of your card and glue your flowers and leaves over it. With the hydra sponge, put some glue on your flowers and then add glitter on it. Add your sentiment under it. To add the finishing touch, simply add sequins!
