Taking the water color paper, stamp and colour the Holly Hobbie image. Fussy cut the image and cut away the flowers the girl is holding. Put aside to use later.
Taking the linen paper make a tent fold card to measure 13.5cm 13.5cm when folded. Taking another linen sheet cut 13.5cm x 17cm. Make 1.5cm folds on each end. Taking the die, place in the centre of the 17cm card-stock and run it through the gemini machine. Cut the extra butterflies. Adhere the folds  at the end of the 17cm card-stock to the card front. This will make the card front with the bend in the front. Stamp the sentiments and punch out. Adhere to the card front with the 3d dots. Adhere the extra butterflies to the card front. Adhere the Holly Hobbie girl to the left of the card and the flowers behind the sentiment circle on the right of the card.

You see here the placements of the sentiments and flowers.

I love this card base. I find it opens so many doors as to how the card can be decorated.
Have a happy scrappy inky day
