Let’s make our cards:

Take your card base pieces fold & burnish with bone folder, attach embossed card stock piece with multipurpose glue & set aside.

Stamp sentiment – I used ‘Happy Birthday’ – in Sahara Sand Ink – you could stamp a different sentiment, you may need a different size scrap.

Stamp 3 each of the flowers as I have done – for yellow card stamp 3 in So Saffron & 3 in Pretty Peacock. For purple card stamp 3 in Highland Heather & 3 in Pretty Peacock cut out with coordinating Dies – set aside

Next with Bouquet Bunch Dies cut out the stems & leaves – for yellow card cut 1 main stem bunch in Old Olive & 1 large leaves, plus 2 smaller leaves & for purple card cut the same but in Mossy Meadow & 2 Very Vanilla flower bunches per card – set aside

With multipurpose glue, stick the rectangle shapes for each card together ready to layer the flowers together on. Then do a dry fit before gluing – you can use my pictures as a reference if you need. Once happy you can stick it together – starting with the stem bunch(I used multipurpose glue sparingly to attach) hang it over the bottom edge a little.

I used a dimensional on the back/top largest flower & added the other flowers with glue dots – along the way if you need to do a dry fit, to ensure you are happy with your placement, you can do so & then finally add the 3 leaf die cuts tucked in behind all the flowers with multipurpose glue(you may need to break off the stems a little to fit them in).

With plenty of dimensionals add flowers to card base, leaving just over a 1/4” at the top & evenly at the sides.

Then with dimensionals add sentiment to bottom left, evenly with edge of card base & lastly with a glue dot, add a ribbon bow to each – for yellow card I used 2 pieces of ribbon & for purple card I used a single piece of ribbon & your all finished.

Take a look at your beautiful creations, just gorgeous. Who are you going to send yours to ?
