        Using the 6x6" Decorative Square die set, cut numbers one, three, five, and seven in Lagoon mirror card, numbers two, four, and six in patterned paper from the Flower Power paper pad, and number eight in Crystal White pearl card. Matt and layer each of the three patterned paper die-cuts onto Crystal White pearl card. Glitter the sides of all the white panels with Crystallina Sparkelicious glitter, then adhere to the appropriate Decorative Square mirror die-cut panel and attach to the base card with foam pads. Stamp and heat-emboss the sentiment from the Birthday Happiness A6 stamp set onto the Crystal White die-cut panel using the Metallic Silver embossing powder. Affix to the small Decorative Square die-cut panel and secure to the base card with foam pads. 

        2 Using just the dies from the Flower Power stamp and die set, die-cut several times from vellum and white card. Once cut, leave the card inside the die and colour with the Peacock Feathers Oxide ink. Remove from the die and cover with Jazzy Jade Sparkelicious glitter. Repeat this process numerous times. Shape the petals and adhere together with Pinflair glue gel. Cut the stamens in silver mirror card, add Ice Breaker Sparkelicious glitter to the tips, then attach to the middle of each flower along with a Sparkler jewel. 

        3 For the foliage, cover a sheet of Lagoon pearl card with an A4 double-sided sticky sheet, then die-cut the Leafy Foliage, remove the top of the sticky sheet and cover with Ice Breaker Sparkelicious glitter. Arrange the flowers and foliage onto the base card and affix with Pinflair glue gel. Secure the bow and large jewels onto the left-hand corner using Pinflair glue gel to finish.

          Love the colour of cards and the die cut pattern on the new nesting die sets so delicate, and the glitter perfect match for the card .
