Instructions: Cut a piece of white card stock 12” x 6” and score at 6” mark on the score board. Fold to make a top fold card. Prepare a mat layer by cutting white card stock 5 7/8” x 5 7/8”. Add a dark purple pattern paper from paper collection smaller than this white mat layer. Adhere this on the card front using foam tape. Cut a 6” card panel design from paper collection. Mat it on white card stock leaving a very narrow border all around. Cut a Courtyard Elegance die cut in white card stock. Cut it to match the size of the second mat layer. Adhere on the second mat layer and adhere this whole panel on the card front using foam tape.
Stamp the Zinnia flowers from Small Zinnia cling stamp set with Magenta hue ink on deluxe flower shaping paper. For one flower, two big size, two medium and two small are needed. Stamp many small flowers for buds. Colour with vibrant fuschia and magenta hue inks. Cut with coordinating die and shape in 3D flower shaping mold. Layer the flowers together. Add stamens in the centre of buds. Make leaves using the Library ink and leaf green ink. Colour them using sponge dauber and shape them in 3D flower shaping mold.
Cut an oval frame in deep pink colour background paper from paper collection. Cut out the centre die cut from Elaborate ovals frame die. Add some pink colour in the centre and add a sentiment. Add the oval frame in the centre of the card and then place the sentiment tag.
