Instructions: Cut a piece of white cardstock 12″ x 6″, score at 6″ along the long side and fold to create a base card of 6″ x 6″. Cut a piece of white cardstock 6″ x 6″ and emboss with the Ornate Frame embossing folder and adhere to the front of the card base. Die cut two decorative dies from the HCD1-7212 Petite Pocket Accents Die set out of white cardstock. Cut a piece of white cardstock 5″ x 5″ and using the plain edge dies from the HCD1-7212 Petite Pocket Accents Die set die cut the edges and then adhere the decorative die cuts to the edges. Die cut two outer decorative dies and add Crystal Clear glitter before adhering to the edge of the decorative dies. Adhere this to the base card with foam tape.

Die cut the outer border of the label die from the HCD1-7203 Ornamental Tags Die set out of white cardstock. Add a piece of Stick It paper to a piece of white cardstock and die cut the inner decorative die. Die cut two inner decorative dies with the sentiment out of white cardstock. Remove the protective paper from the previously die cut outer edge and add one of the decorative die cuts. Add Ultrafine Crystal glitter and rub over the sticky surface to allow the glitter to stick to the sticky surface. Adhere the second die cut for more depth. Die cut two of the smaller label dies from the HCD1-7203 Ornamental Tags Die set out of white cardstock and trim the ends and adhere to the sides of the label. Add the long edges to each long ends of the label. Adhere the label to the middle of the card with foam tape.

Stamp the flower images from the HCPC-3773 Flowering Dogwood Stamp set in White Daisy ink on vellum and emboss with the Aurora Crystal embossing powder. Colour on the back of the vellum with Seedless Preserve ink and die cut with the coordinating die. Shape using the golf tool and assemble with two layers per flower. Pierce the centres and insert the purple bead stamens and glue in place using Dries Clear glue. Use three stamens for the larger flowers and single stamens for the small flowers. When dry trim the ends of the stamens and adhere above and below the label as shown.

Stamp the leaf images from the HCPC-3773 Flowering Dogwood Stamp set in White Daisy ink on vellum and emboss with the Aurora Crystal embossing powder. Colour the back of the leaves with Twisted Citron and Lucky Clover inks and die cut with the coordinating dies. Shape using the golf tool and adhere around the flowers.

Stamp the sentiment from the HCPC-3846 Thank You Sentiments Stamp set in Plum ink on white cardstock and die cut using the small tag die from the HCD1-7203 Ornamental Tags Die set. Shape and nestle among the flowers as shown.
