Cut a piece of white cardstock 10” x 7”, score at 5” along the long side and fold to create a base card of 5” x 7”. Cut a piece of dark green patterned paper from the Calla Lily paper collection and adhere to the front of the card. Die cut the outer frame die from the HCD2-7306 Decorative Circle Frames Die set from the light green patterned paper and sponge the edges with Firefly ink. Die cut a piece of heavy cardboard using the same die and then adhere to the front of the card. Die cut the decorative outer die out of white cardstock using the outer decorative die and add Frosting Powder using spray adhesive and then adhere to the outer frame as shown.

Die cut the eyelet circle out of dark green paper using the largest eyelet circle die from the HCD2-7306 Decorative Circle Frames Die set and adhere to the middle of the plain green patterned paper circle. Die cut a plain circle from light green patterned paper using the second largest die from the HCD1-7155 Circle Basics – Large Die set, sponge the edge with Firefly ink and adhere to the centre of the eyelet circle. Stamp the sentiment from the HCPC-3845 Just for You Stamp set in Mountain Pine ink on the bottom right of the circle as shown with a stamp positioner. Die cut three eyelet frames out of white cardstock using the second largest eyelet circle die and the third largest plain edge die from the HCD1-7154 Eyelet Circle Basics – Small Die set and adhere together.

Stamp the spray image from the HCPC-3888 Wild Aster Spray Stamp set in Hero Arts Embossing ink on the vellum and heat emboss with the white embossing powder before die cutting with the coordinating die.

Stamp the leaves from the HCPC-3842 Oakberry Lane Blossoms Stamp set in Mountain Pine ink on Deluxe Flower Shaping Paper. Colour with Firefly ink and die cut with the coordinating die. Shape using the coordinating mold and when dry, add Crystal Clear glitter with Dries Clear glue on a damp sponge. Adhere over and around the Aster Spray as shown.

Stamp the flower images from the HCPC-3842 Oakberry Lane Blossoms Stamp set in Magenta Hue ink on Deluxe Flower Shaping Paper. Colour the centres of the flowers with Tiger Lily ink and the outer petals with Magenta Hue ink and die cut with the coordinating die. Sponge the edges with Cactus Lily ink and the backs of the flowers with Magenta Hue ink and then shape using the coordinating mold. Assemble the flowers with two layers as well as some buds with single layers and then add Crystal Clear glitter using Dries Clear glue on a damp sponge.
