The finished size of this square tent fold card is 6.299” x  6.299” (16 cm x 16 cm) 
To make the card base:
Taking the white card-stock, cut the card base to 6.299” x 6.299” (16 cm x 16 cm) x2. In one of the cards make a 0.59” (1.5 cm) fold in the top, add double sided tape to the fold. Placing both pieces together this will form the tent fold card base. Taking the orange card-stock cut matting (15 cm x 15 cm) And (14.5 cm x 14.5 cm).  Find from the paper collection the design paper used and cut this a little smaller than the card-stock mattings. Adhere together the matting and matching design paper using double sided tape or clear drying glue Adhere the two layers together using the 3d foam tape or dots.

To make the flowers: 
Taking the design paper scraps from the collection use the classic rose stamp and die set to make the rose petals. Use the distress inks to bring color to the leaves, rose petal tips and centers. Spray the petals and leaves with the water mister place in the rose mold then put the mold through the die cutting machine twice to get a good press. (Do not make the paper or card-stock too wet as the paper will break in the mold when you put it through the die cutting machine. If you do make it too wet, leave to dry until they are just moist just as you would when balling to bring shape to the petals with the tools. )  For the blue / green colored flowers, these are sprayed with the Lindy’s stamp gang sprays- Grab a Guy Gold, Hydrangea Blue, Ponderosa Pines Olive Spray also the cut away inner part of the eyelet frame that was put aside. Leave to dry a little, as the petals will still be too wet. When ready put these through the machine in the rose mold. Take the petals out of the molds with the aid of the piercer tool found in the flower shaping tool kit. Leave the shaped petals to dry completely. When dry, shape the centers so the petals cup up. Prick a hole in the petal center to you can thread the stamens through the opening.  The stamen colors used are the pink and the green fond in the bright pearl assortment bundle. Take three stamens, fold in half then thread the stems through the whole. Secure with at the back with the hot glue gun. The glue is cooled off, trim the excess stems away.

The card front:
Taking the Elegant Border Basics die set and chose the border used. Cut the lace boarders from the white card-stock to fit the butterfly border. Trim to fit the card front then apply colour with the Venation Orange archival ink and daubers. Taking the white card-stock, the Butterfly Border stamp, matching die and inks, stamp, colour then die cut the image twice. Trim one of the borders to fit across the card front. Bring colour to the butterflies of this border with the Garden Patina ink. Before adhering to the card front this border with the border lace together using 3d dots, align and stamp the sentiment taken from the Butterfly Kisses stamp set. For the 2nd butterfly border that was cut, apply colour to the butterflies using pinks blues and oranges listed in the product list that match. Fussy cut the butterflies away from the frame. Apply clear drying glue to the wings then dip in the glitter. When dry, make a fold at the wing base to give shape then adhere to the same shaped butterfly in the border with the hot glue gun or clear drying glue. Arrange the flowers and leaves at the base of the card and along the lace border. Adhere in place using the hot glue gun. To finish the card apply the golden rod stickles to the butterfly bodies, at the join of the borders and to the flower petal bases.
