    Using the second die from the Scalloped and Pierced Circle die set, place the top just over the fold on the base card and cut. Score across the middle of the front of the card and bend forward. Die-cut a sheet of white card using the same die and attach to the bottom half of the base card front to make an easel card. Die-cut the third die from the set twice using Azalea mirror card, secure onto the front and inside of the card. Die-cut the fourth die from white card twice, go around the outside using Crystallina Sparkelicious glitter, then attach the front one using foam pads and the inside one using double-sided tape. 

    2 For the top layer, attach a piece of patterned paper from the Fabulous Florals and Flutter paper pad to scrap card using the A4 double-sided sticky sheet. Die-cut with the nineth die from the Basic Circle die set, place inside the Fabulous Fan embossing folder, and emboss. Do this twice; one for the inside of the card and one for the outside. Use the chisel-tip glue pen and Crystallina Sparkelicious glitter to cover the embossed parts.

    3 Stamp, heat-emboss and die-cut numerous flowers using the Flower Power stamp and die set onto vellum with Bright White embossing powder. Colour from the back with Picked Raspberry Oxide ink and add Romantic Rose Sparkelicious glitter. For the bottom layer of the flowers, die-cut in white card, leave inside the die, and colour with the Oxide ink to give the flowers a white line all around. Glitter using the Romantic Rose Sparkelicious glitter then shape all the petals and adhere together with Pinflair glue. Die-cut the stamens in Azalea mirror card, cover with the same Sparkelicious glitter as the flowers, then secure to the middle of each flower along with the silver sparkles.

    4 Fussy cut the foliage from the Floral Frames and Flutters foiled acetate sheets. Working from the back of the acetate, cover the leaves with Art Glitter glue and Stardust Silver Sparkelicious glitter. When completely dry, arrange the flowers and foliage around the base card and secure with Pinflair glue gel.

    5 Die-cut the words ‘Mum’ and ‘Happy Birthday’ in white card and cover with Crystallina Sparkelicious glitter. Die-cut the outline dies in Azalea mirror card, then matt and layer the die-cuts and attach to the main card with foam pads. To finish, secure the jewels from the Beautiful Bouquet Bling Box to the embossed backgrounds using Art Glitter glue.
