To start this beautiful floral you will need

Using the floral corner, size 5-1/2"x5-1/2".

Color as desired.







I chose to use COPIC® markers. A full list of the colors are listed above.









You will need a 5"x7" piece of clear acetate. (I up cycled a Sizzex® container.) Cut to size.



Cut a sheet of Hammermill® 100lb. White Coverstock in half. Using the Verso® Budding Vine Patterned Panel Die, run through Big Shot® . Lay the Verso® Budding Vine Patterned Panel Die next to the cut pattern and run through the Big Shot® again.

Place the die cut in a trash can and spray the backside using Elmer's® Craft Bond Spray Adhesive. Then adhere the Die Cut to the 5"x7" piece of clear acetate as shown.



Fussy cut the floral images as shown.


Using EZ-Tear® Tape adhere the fussy cut florals as shown and trim the excess off.













Open the 5"x7" cardbase. Measure in 1/4" from edges of the card front. Cut out the center of the cardfront. Apply 1/4" EZ-Tear® Tape to the inside of the card front.







Adhere the Acetate image to the backside of the cardfront.


Embellish the 1/4" boarder using the 1/2 Pearls and Rhinestones as shown.


Cut a 5"x7" rectangle of Neenah® Astrobrights Martian Green Cardstock for the back interior panel.







OPTIONAL: Arrange and adhere a couple of scrap strips, a mini floral image and a name plaque as shown.




Using Spellbinder® Happy Birthday Die cut your sentiment and adhere to the front of the card as shown.
