  • Cut a piece of Very Vanilla 8½"x 5½" (Score at 4¼")
  • Fold CS in half and burnish with Bone Folder to create the card base.
  • Cut a piece of In Color DSP 5⅜" x 4⅛" and adhere to card base
  • Cut a piece of Very Vanilla CS 4" x 3¼"
  • Using the Soft Suede Ink, stamp the large flower from the Calming Camellia stamp set on the piece of Very Vanilla CS.
  • Using the Stampin Blends, color the flower as follows:
    • Polished Pink for the flowers blending the light and dark colors
    • Cranny Apple Green for the leafs blending the light and dark colors
    • Bronze for the stems
    • Bumblebee Marker for the center of the flower
    • Wink of Stella for the center of the flower 
  • Cut a piece of Soft Suede CS 4¼" x 3½", then adhere the flower piece to the Soft Suede CS
  • Cut a ⅝"strip of Very Vanilla CS, stamp your greeting, then trim the ends to fit your card.
  • Add Dimensionals then adhere the Soft Suede piece with flower to the DSP.
  • Add Dimensionals then adhere your greeting near the bottom of the card.
  • Using a dinner fork and make a bow.  Wrap the ribbon around the fork, go down thru the center, pull up and back thru the center.  Lay the fork down, taking both ends of the ribbon, tie a knot and pull tight then slide off the fork.  Add a glue dot to the back and adhere to the card .
  • To put the final touches on the card front, add a few Iridescent Rhinestones Basic Jewels.
