See HERE tips on how to make the carnations 
*Make the card base, using Kraft card-stock to measure 5.90in x 5.90 in when folded into the tent fold. 
Finding from the paper collection the light and darker orange design papers. With the lighter orange design paper make the first matting, cut this a little smaller than the card front. Taking the darker orange design paper cut this 5.118in x 5.118in (13cm x 13cm) Ink both matting papers with the walnut stain ink with the aid of the daubers. Adhere the inked layers to the card front with 3d dots.
 *Taking the watercolour paper and the stamp from the Fanciful Carnation cling stamp set, stamp the image with the gold embossing powder. Taking the white card-stock, Stamp 2x the images using the archival coffee ink. Bring colour to all the images using the ripe persimmon, fossilised amber, crushed olive and peeled paint distress inks and the aid of the water brush. Die cut the images made from the white card stock and put aside. Find the large circle die that fits the image from the Large Circles die set, die cut this and die cut 4x extra circles the same size from the white card stock. Adhere all the circles together to form a chip board circle. Apply colour to the circle edges using the ripe persimmon distress ink and the aid of the daubers. Adhere this circle to the centre of the card front.
 *Taking the light orange design paper and the large carnation stamps. Stamp with the gold embossing powder enough for three carnations. For 2 carnations cut 2x large petals and cut 4x smaller petals. Which will be placed next to each other on the card front later. For the smaller carnation tucked to the top and between these stamp and cut 3x large petals. Add the ripe persimmon ink to the petal edges then use the floral basic mold to give the petals shape.  Look to the video film on how to use the molds. Bring more shape to the petals with the flower shaping tool kit and your fingers. Adhere the carnation petals together using the hot glue gun. Finding the green design paper, stamp the10 leaves with the gold embossing powder. Bring extra colour to the leaves by using the green colored distress inks. Bring shape to the leaves by using the flower-shaping tool set.
 *Adhere all the carnations leaves and die cut carnation buds to the foot of the circle as seen in the card photo using the hot glue gun.
