Instructions: The finished size of this card is 16cm x 21cm / 6 ¼ “ x 8 ¼ “
Make a tent fold card with the above measurements. Using the Baby blue and the Pine tree inks, make the grass and cloud background on the card front. Stamp, die cut and color the tulip boarder six times. Apply a little glue to the tulip lines then dip into the glitter.
Put aside to dry. Stamp, die cut and color the fence with the coffee and sepia inks. From both fences, trim the main post off from one side.  Adhere the trimmed post to the remaining post. Adhere to the card front. Later, when the card is completed, apply the glossy accents to both the post balls on the fence. Trim the tulip boarder as needed to form three rows of tulips at the foot of the fence as seen in the card photo. Taking the ribbon, make a bow and tie across the foot of the card. Secure this by using doubles sided tape and the hot glue gun. To make the frame, tape both the die frames together so you get the frame size wanted. Die cut once with both the white card stock and the craft foam. Adhere together. Apply color to the frame by using the Pine tree ink and the inking tool. Adhere to the card center. Taking the sentiment stamp and die, cut this four times. One of the sentiment banners, only the flowers and leaves are colored. Trim these away and use them to decorate the frame corners of the frame. The remaining sentiment banners adhere together then apply color. The archival inks are used for this. Apply the glossy accents to the banner part only, when this is dry gently bring a curve to the banner so it can be adhered over the frame and to the card front. Make the cart by stamping and die cutting the cart and wheel. To color use the Sepia and the Coffee inks. Cut three extra carts and wheels. Adhere together then adhere the wheel to the cart. Apply the glossy accents to the wheel and the cart handle. Put aside to dry. Make enough petals and leaves for ten tulips using the smallest size stamp and dies. The colors used for the tulips are plum, maroon, fern green and leaf green archival inks. These tulips were made using a bead and wire threaded through the bead hole; twist so the wire is strong. Make a hole in the center of a tulip petal, thread the wired bead through this and use the hot glue gun to secure and wrap the bead. Add another tulip petal the same way also securing using the hot glue gun. Adhere to the stalk and leaves. Arrange the tulips in the cart slot and adhere in place. Place the cart in the frame and adhere using the 3D foam dots, the hot glue gun and clear drying glue. To finish the card apply the diamond stickles to the flowers on the sentiment and the frame.
A few closeups for you to enjoy.
