Cut a piece of Deluxe Flower Shaping Paper 7 1/2″ x 10 1/2″, score at 5 1/4″ and fold. Die cut the shaped base using the No. 1 die from the HCD2-7399 Flourish Companion Frame Die slightly over the edge of the fold. Die cut an outer frame using the No. 1 die from the HCD2-7399 Flourish Companion Frame Die set in Deluxe Flower Shaping Paper and adhere to the shaped base front. Die cut two frames using the No.1 and No.2 dies from the HCD2-7399 Flourish Companion Frame Die set from pattern paper and Deluxe Flower Shaping Paper. Adhere the pattern paper over the white frame and then adhere to the card front with foam tape. Stamp the sentiment from the HCPC-3845 Just For You Sentiments in Deep Purple ink using a stamp positioner and then adhere to the inside of the frame. Die cut the decorative dies from the HCD2-7399 Flourish Companion Frame Die set out of gold cardstock. Adhere the large decorative die to the outer frame and the smaller one to the inside of the frame.
Stamp the sweet pea images from the HCPC-3980 Sweet Pea Cling Stamp Set with Vivid Chartreuse and Majestic Violet inks on Deluxe Flower Shaping Paper. Colour the flowers with Buttercup ink and the centres with Leaf Green ink and die cut with the coordinating dies. Colour the edges of the purple flowers with Violet ink and colour the backs with Buttercup, Leaf Green and Violet inks. Colour the edges of the light green flowers with Magenta Hue ink and the backs with Buttercup, Leaf Green and Magenta Hue inks. Shape using the coordinating mold and then pleat the petals by hand. Pierce the centres and add three purple stamens to the purple flowers and pink stamens to the pink flowers. Assemble the flowers using hot glue.

Colour the images with Leaf Green and Mowed Lawn inks and die cut with the coordinating dies. Colour the backs of the leaves with Leaf Green ink and shape using the coordinating mold.

Add florist tape to the flowers and add leaves and wire tendrils to the flowers as you roll down the wires. Add Crystal clear to the flowers and leaves, trim the ends and adhere to the right side of the card as shown. To finish add a purple organza ribbon bow at the bottom right of the card as shown.
