Read on for a full step-by-step project tutorial.





Place the Floral Lace Border die plus the right-hand edging die at the edge of the base card and die cut. Trim a panel in Amethyst Mirror card and die-cut the right-hand side using the same edging die as before and attach to the inside of the base card.

2 Cut three different size matts in Amethyst mirror card, Crystal White pearl card, and one in patterned paper from the Beautiful Jewels 8x8” paper pad. Glitter the four sides of the Crystal White panel with Crystal Crush Sparkelicious glitter. Matt and layer, secure the ribbon and bow onto the top left-hand corner, and attach to the base card with foam pads.

3 Using the Basic Oval nesting die set, cut number ten in Amethyst mirror card and number eleven in Crystal White Pearl card. Matt and layer and attach to the main card with foam pads.

4 Die-cut the middle die from the Floral Lace Diamond set in gold mirror card and the smallest die in Crystal White pearl card. Stamp and heat-emboss the sentiment into the middle of the white diamond using Versafine Clair Black ink and Wow! Clear Gloss embossing powder. Attach the two diamonds together with foam pads, decorate with Pretty Purples Self-Adhesive Sparkles and secure onto the main card.  

5 Stamp, heat-emboss and die-cut the foliage from the Summer Foliage stamp and die set using the Versafine Clair Black ink and Wow! Clear Gloss embossing powder onto Crystal White card. Colour with the Twisted Citron Oxide ink and decorate with Crushed Lavender and Diamante Sparkle Sparkelicious glitter plus jewels from the Luscious Yellow Self-Adhesive Sparkles.

6 Stamp, heat-emboss, die-cut, and colour the sunflowers from the Sunflower Trio stamp and die set. Glitter the petals with Lemon Sorbet and the middle of the flowers with Disco Black Sparkelicious glitter. When dry, affix together with Pinflair glue gel. Arrange the sunflowers and foliage onto the main card and secure in place with Pinflair glue gel.

7 Decorate the oval and Floral Lace Border with jewels from the Spring Collection Bling Box. Dot the Art Glitter PVA glue around the oval and cover with Lemon Drop Sparkelicious glitter to finish.
