1 Trim a sheet of Amethyst matt mirror card and secure to the base card. Cut the largest die from the Decorative Frame Square die set in Crystal White pearl card and add Crystal Crush Sparkelicious glitter before attaching to the base card with foam pads. Matt and layer panels using Amethyst matt mirror card and a patterned paper from the Summer Florals paper pad on top.
2 Die-cut the second die from the Decorative Frame Oval die set in Crystal White pearl card and glitter all around the edges with Crystal Crush Sparkelicious glitter. Die-cut an oval from the Basic Ovals die set in Amethyst matt mirror card, then matt and layer on top of the Decorative Oval die cut and attach to the main card with foam pads. Using the next die in the Basic Ovals die set, cut from Crystal White pearl card, then stamp and heat-emboss the main stamp from the Bouquet Builder stamp set into the middle using the Uptown embossing powder and clear embossing inkpad. Colour the leaves with the green marker pens and add Crystal Crush Sparkelicious glitter.
3 Using the Beautiful Bouquet Blossom stamp and die set, cut one set of the flowers in Crystal White pearl card. Leave the die-cuts in the die and blend over with the Oxide ink. Stamp, heat-emboss and die-cut the stamp from the same set onto vellum numerous times using the clear embossing inkpad and Bright White embossing powder. Glitter the petals with Blueberry Sorbet Sparkelicious glitter and, when dry, shape and adhere together. Die-cut the stamens using the Stamens die set in silver mirror card. Decorate with jewels from the Spring Collection Bling Box and Blueberry Sorbet Sparkelicious glitter, secure into the middle of each flower, and attach a large jewel covered with Diamante Sparkle Sparkelicious glitter.
4 Die-cut the different foliage using silver mirror card, Aquamarine pearl card, and silver glitter card. Decorate the berry foliage with jewels from the Spring Collection Bling Box and secure the flowers and foliage onto the base card with Pinflair 3D glue gel.
5 Die-cut the String Bows using Amethyst matt mirror card. To keep the middles in the bows, just secure them at the back with a small piece of Sellotape. Attach both together and attach to the main card, placing a jewel in the middle from the Bling Box. Die-cut a few more of the string bows, snip off the tails, slightly fold them in half, and attach to the flower display.
6 Stamp, heat-emboss and die-cut the ‘Happy Birthday’ using the Tiny Tag and Sentiment Plaque stamp and die set and attach with Pinflair 3D glue. Dot the Art Glitter Dries-Clear glue around the oval topper and cover with Blueberry Sorbet Sparkelicious glitter to finish.
