Score and fold the card base in half as you would if you were making a normal card.

Glue the DSP to the center of the front of the card leaving about 1/4” on both sides.

Make your own DSP by randomly stamping images on the 4” x 3-1/2” piece of Basic White, then cut the piece into strips 1-1/4” on each side with 1-1/2” in the center. Glue over the DSP leaving 1/4" space between pieces.

Using the Forever Flourishing Dies, die cut the images from the different colored Cardstocks and Gold Foil.

Using the smallest rectangle from the Stitched Rectangle Dies, die cut out of the Polished Pink 2” x 1-1/2” piece.

Arrange all the die cut leaves and flowers to your liking and then add adhesive to the back of the Polished Pink stitched rectangle and adhere all the die cut pieces.

Use your paper snips to flag the ends of the 3” x 1/2" piece of Gold Fold, then glue over the Polished Pink rectangle.

Using the Evening Evergreen ink stamp the sentiment on to the piece 2-1/4” x 1-3/4” of Basic White, then die cut using the Stitched So Sweetly Dies. Glue centered over the Polished Pink rectangle and Gold Fold.

For the inside of the card, stamp the sentiment with Evening Evergreen ink onto the Basic White card stock.
