Card size: 6 x 6”. Start with a 6 x 12” piece of white heavy weight cardstock, fold to 6 X 6” and place the Simple Centerpiece die so that the top cutting edge is just above the fold so it won’t cut the fold off (the die should fit just right). Cut another Simple Centerpiece die from light turquoise then glue it to the front of card. Cut 1 for the inside as well or a coordinating decorative paper for the inside.
Next, cut the Elegant Hearts Centerpiece die from dark turquoise and glue it onto card. Cut the Simply Elegant Centerpiece die from light turquoise then glue it on leaving center section loose to slide the sentiment octagon in.
Stamp the sentiment on light turquoise using black ink die cut it with the Simple Centerpiece 2” die then die cut the mat from medium turquoise using the 2 1/2" die plus the 2” die together (making a frame), leave the dies on and emboss the “crack” between the dies. Now slide the sentiment under points of the loose Simply Elegant die cut, use tweezers to lift points if necessary.
Stamp magnolias using Cactus Flower, sponge with a combo of Majestic Violet and Cactus Flower, die cut. Stamp leaves using Fern Green, sponge with Leaf Green and Cactus Flower, die cut then form flowers and leaves in the mold. Stamp Sepal using the Lilac Blossoms on dark green with Fern Green ink, die cut and shape in the mold. Shape further with the Deluxe Flower Shaping Kit to make a tight cup.
Use 3 small magnolia blossoms to make buds, ink side out, using tools to make a rounded deep cup, use glue to keep the petals together then glue sepal under. For full blossoms glue two of the same size together for each flower. Insert yellow stamen. These colors make a nice triad. Glitter all flowers.
Stamp Magnolia branches using London Fog on white (this makes an almost no-line image after coloring). Die cut then color with Copic makers. Stamp the small butterfly on vellum 2 times using Cactus Flower, sponge the backs with yellow and Cactus Flower. Glue them together in the center only.
Arrange flowers, leaves and buds with magnolia branches along the left, top and bottom of Octagons. Glue the butterfly toward the top at right side.
Mix shimmer additive and lacquer together to brush onto leaves and sepals. Glitter the card front.
