Flowers with Love and Best Wishes - Sharon Blaxter

Please read all instructions before commencing

1.   Cut a piece of blue card 13cm x 13cm with a craft knife and ruler on a self healing mat.
Place the largest Victorian Square die on the front of the card and run through the Cuttlebug with plates A, B  and C, run through the machine once again with the embossing mat.

2.   Place the Victorian Square onto a piece of scrap paper and with the Glitzin Glamour Silver, apply glitter around the embossed edge. The scrap paper will catch any overflow from the glitter.
Leave to dry for about 10 minutes.

3.   With the help of a pokey tool carefully pick up the white corner peel off sticker and place onto the Victorian Square about 2 cm in from the pointed edge, as shown in picture 1.

4.   Cut a piece of  white shimmer card  11.7cm x 23.4cm  and with a trimmer, score at 11.7cm and fold to make a card.

5.   Attach the Victorian Square in the centre of the card with Elmers glue.
With a pokey tool  lift the wider transparent glitter line  and attach near the edge of the card, snip at the ends to make a frame.

6.   Select the flowers that you would like to use, I used 1 large and 2 smaller ones.
These flowers have a lot of definition and are very beautiful, very life like.
Place a small amount of  Helmar glue to the back of the flower and using tweezers place as in picture 3.

7.   With a pokey tool pick up the sentiment and place as pictured.

                   Your card is now complete!
