Cut a piece of Deluxe Flower Shaping Paper 10” x 7”, score at 5” along the long side and fold. Die cut the decorative edge from the front using the edge die from the HCD2-7403 Fancy Flourish Border Die. Cut a piece of pale yellow pattern paper 4 7/8” x 6 7/8” and adhere to the card inside back. Die cut the decorative die using the edge die and decorative die out of Deluxe Flower Shaping Paper. Add Frosting Powder to the die and then adhere to the card inside back as shown.
Die cut the other half of the decorative die from the HCD2-7403 Fancy Flourish Border Die using the decorative die and the edge die out of Deluxe Flower Shaping Paper. Add Frosting Powder using Dries Clear glue on a dry sponge. Cut a piece of purple pattern paper 6 3/4” and 3 3/4”. Using the decorative die as a guide die cut the edge using the edge die from the HCD2-7403 Fancy Flourish Border Die. Adhere the decorative die over the purple paper and then adhere to the left front of the card.
Stamp the leave images from the HCPC-31020 Iris Garden Petals Cling Stamp Set in Olive ink on Deluxe Flower Shaping Paper. Colour the images with Leaf Green and Olive 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 3D Crystal Lacquer to the leaves and allow to dry. Adhere the leaves to the front as shown with foam squares.

Colour the petals with Buttercream ink and die cut with the coordinating dies. Colour the flowers on the backs with Buttercream ink and the edges with Sunflower ink. Shape the petals using the coordinating mold. Pierce the centres of the petals and assemble the flowers. I have used 3 petals per flower – trim one set of petals in the centre. Insert gold glitter stamens in a petal that has be cupped inwards and add one trimmed petal using a glue gun. Add the second complete set of petals cupped downwards and secure with hot glue. Add the last trimmed petal to the centre of the petals facing downwards using the glue gun. For the yellow and purple flowers I have used gold glitter stamens to the centres. Add Crystal Clear glitter using clear gloss gel medium on a paintbrush. Add Go Man Go Prills to the flowers as shown. Trim the wires and adhere over the leaves as shown. Roll a single petal to create a bud and add Crystal Clear glitter using clear gloss gel medium with a paintbrush. Adhere under leaves as shown.
