Instructions

On the long side score the navy card at 1", 2", 3" and then repeat from the other side.

On the trimmer, turn the card to the short side and line up at the 1" mark and cut between the 1st and 3rd score line from the top and repeat at the bottom along the same 1" line.

Move the card to the 2" mark and repeat the cuts you just made.

Move along to the 3 1/2" mark and repeat the cuts and then again along the 4 1/2" line.

Carefully push the pieces between the cuts back and bring the ones at the side of them forwards and then burnish the folds. You should end up with top, middle and bottom sections forward and the 2nd and 4th back (see finished card).






Add the dsp layers to the panels across the card and down the two side panels as shown in the picture.

Die cut a navy and a white scalloped rectangle to fit on the front, fix the navy one in place with dimensionals.





Stamp a sentiment on the white rectangle.

Stamp several flowers and leaves using your different coloured inks. I found it easier to stamp the dark detail first and then the lighter infill but do whichever way is best for you.  If you have the dies, then die cut the images, I don't have then so I fussy cut them all.

Punch out some of the silver flowers using the smaller side of the Bough Punch.

Adhere the white rectangle to the navy one on the front and then start arranging the flowers and leaves, adding some directly with glue and the rest with dimensionals to give some depth to your design.

Adhere the remaining piece of white card to the back of the card to write your message, I had a flower left over so I added that too..

Sprinkle some pearls around the flowers and the card is complete.
