Repeat this process, only this time use the third die in the Decorative Circle die set.
2 Matt and layer the largest Decorative Square die-cut panel onto the base card using foam pads. On top of this add a piece of Azalea mirror card and patterned paper from the Beautiful Bouquets paper pad, glittering around the sides with the Art Glitter glue and Diamante Sparkle Sparkelicious glitter. Attach the smaller Decorative Square die-cut panel to the base card with foam pads. Matt and layer on top a piece of Azalea mirror card and paper from the Summer Florals pad, glittering once again with Diamante Sparkle Sparkelicious glitter.
3 Stamp and heat-emboss the birthday verse from the Birthday Frame stamp set onto Crystal White pearl card using Versafine Clair Morning Mist ink and WOW! Clear Gloss embossing powder. Die-cut using a circle die from the Basic Circles die set, glittering around the circle with Diamante Sparkle Sparkelicious glitter. Matt and layer onto a larger Azalea mirror card die-cut panel, attach to the Decorative Circle, and secure onto the base card with foam pads.
4 Stamp, heat-emboss and die-cut the flowers from the Beautiful Bouquet Bloom stamp and die set numerous times onto paper from the Pastel Sorbet collection pad and vellum using the Bright White embossing powder and clear embossing inkpad. Turn the vellum over and colour using the Oxide inkpads. Glitter the flowers using the Fiesta Sparkelicious glitter and, when dry, shape and adhere together. Die-cut the stamens using silver mirror card, attach the pearls to the stamens from the Leafy Lace Bling Box, secure into the middle of each flower, and, finally, attach a large jewel, glittered with Diamante Sparkle Sparkelicious glitter.
5 Die-cut the Leafy Foliage in silver mirror card, and the Beautiful Bouquet Foliage and Berry Foliage in Aquamarine pearl card. Glitter the Berry Foliage using the Crystal Crush Sparkelicious glitter, then decorate with pearls from the Leafy Lace Bling Box. Attach the flowers and foliage to the main card with Pinflair glue gel. Secure the orange bow to the top right-hand corner along with a large, glittered jewel to finish.
