Instructions:

Cut a piece of white cardstock 6” x 12”, score at 6” along the long side and fold to create a 6” x 6” card base.  Cut a 6” x 6” panel from the patterned paper and using the cutting edge of the Classic Border Basics die cut the edge at the top of the paper as shown.  Cut an eyelet edge from the pink paper and adhere to the back of the bottom half and then adhere both the top and bottom pieces to the base card.

Die cut the circle image from a panel from the patterned paper.  Cut an eyelet edge circle out of the pink patterned paper and using the next size down plain die cut a circle out of the green patterned paper and adhere to the pink circle on the outside edge only.  Using the next size down cut a frame out of the green and pink circles.  Adhere the frame to the card as shown with foam tape and then adhere the circle image to the centre of the frame.

Stamp 3 images from the HCPC-3828 Garden’s Edge Coneflower Stamp set in Fern Green ink on white cardstock.  Colour the images with Leaf Green ink and die cut with the coordinating die.  Add Tutu Pink, Heart of Gold and Minnie Pearls Prills to the leaves on the images and then trim and adhere around the bottom right of the frame.

Stamp several coneflower images from the HCPC-3828 Garden’s Edge Coneflower Stampset in Fern Green, Vibrant Fuchsia, Orange Monarch and Sepia inks on white cardstock.  Colour the stem and leaves in Leaf Green ink, the fuchsia flowers in Vibrant Fuchsia and the orange flowers with Buttercup inks, and the head with Peanut Brittle inks and die cut with the coordinating die.  Shape the flowers and add Espress-O Yourself Prills to the heads.  Trim the petals of some of the flowers and adhere them to the other flowers for more dimension.  Add Crystal Clear to the flowers and adhere around the bottom right as shown.
