Cut an A4 sheet of Early Espresso cardstock in half along the long edge. Fold in half along the long edge and then fold the front of the card in half again creating a mountain fold.
Cut a piece of Whisper White card 3-3/8” x 5”. Stamp the leaves using Early Espresso ink in the upper left and lower right corners. Then Stamp the Mother’s Day sentiment using Early Espresso ink, a little way above the lower right corner leaves.
Stamp the Happy sentiment using Hello Honey ink, above and left of the Mother’s Day sentiment. Then stamp the Happy sentiment twice more, once with So Saffron ink and once with Blushing Bride ink.
Cut a piece of So Saffron card 3-5/8” x 5-1/4”. Apply the stamped card front centrally to the So Saffron layer. Cut a piece of Blushing Bride card 3-7/8” x 5-1/2”. Apply the previous layers centrally to the Blushing Bride layer. Apply adhesive only to the lower back half of the layers and adhere them centrally to the card front.
Stamp the large flower onto a separate piece of Whisper White card using So Saffron ink and then again with Hello Honey ink.
Then punch out the So Saffron flower with the Flower Medallion and cut out the inner portion of the Hello Honey flower (two petals inward) by hand.
Stamp the smaller flower onto a separate piece of Whisper White card using Blushing Bride ink and punch out with the 1-3/4” Scallop Circle.
Apply the hand cut Hello Honey flower up to the centre of the So Saffron flower. Then apply the flower duo to the lower left corner of the card front. Apply the Blushing Bride flower to the lower right corner of the card front so that it tucks under the So Saffron flower. Add a Blushing Bride Candy Dot to the centre of the So Saffron flower and a So Saffron Candy Dot to the centre of the Blushing Bride flower.
Cut a piece of Blushing Bride card 1/2” x 5-1/2”. Stamp the smaller flower along the strip of Blushing Bride card using Blushing Bride ink. Pop the stamped strip up on dimensionals across the centre of a cut piece of Whisper White card 3-7/8” x 5-1/2”.
Stamp the Love and You sentiments side by side on the Whisper White layer using Early Espresso ink. Adhere the stamped Whisper White layer to the inside back of the card.
