    INSTRUCTIONS:

    Die-cut a scalloped square card base using the largest scalloped square die and a white card blank. Place the die slightly over the edge of the card fold and affix with low-tac tape before running through an A4 die-cutting machine. Using the same die, cut another scalloped square from Crystal White pearl card, go around the edges with Crystallina Sparkelicious glitter using the chisel-tip glue pen and affix to the front of the card base using dries-clear glue.

    2 Using the second-largest die from the Pierced and Scalloped Square die set, cut a panel from Azalea mirror Card, then attach to the card front using 3D foam pads. Using the third-largest die from the same set, cut a panel from Crystal White pearl card. Stamp ‘With caring thoughts of you’ from the Statement Sentiments stamp set using the clear inkpad, cover with Polished Silver embossing powder and heat set. Infill the word ‘caring’ with Crystal Crush Sparkelicious glitter using dries-clear glue. Go around the edges with Crystal Crush Sparkelicious glitter and affix to the card front using foam pads.

    3 Trim a sheet of Azalea mirror card to 6½” square. Die-cut an oval aperture in the centre of the card using the sixth-largest die from the Pierced and Scalloped Ovals die set, then affix to the card front, as shown. Using the fifth-largest die from the same set, cut a scalloped-edge oval aperture into Crystal White pearl card. Edge with Crystal Crush Sparkelicious glitter and affix to the card front, as shown using foam pads.

    4 Die-cut four large and four medium flowers from Chloe’s Azalea Vellum using the Flower Power stamp and die Set. Using the clear inkpad, stamp the details into the centre of each flower using the corresponding stamps, cover with Polished Silver Super Fine embossing powder and heat set. Add dots of dries-clear adhesive to the petals of each flower and sprinkle with Pink Rose Sparkelicious glitter. Shape the petals around a paint brush and layer up the flowers, as shown, using 3D glue gel. Add a 12mm Sparkler to the centre of each of the large flowers and 10mm Sparklers to the centre of the medium flowers using 3D glue gel.  Affix the flowers around the oval aperture, as shown, using 3D glue gel.

    5 Die-cut four sets of Swirly Foliage dies using Azalea mirror card and affix to the card around the flowers using 3D glue gel. Add Pretty Pinks Self-Adhesive Sparkles to the corners and onto the stamped and embossed details in the centre of the card to finish.
