Here is a card I made for my daughter to give to a friend. Enjoy.

Form a 4 ¼ x 5 ½ side folded card from orange card stock.

Cut 4 x 5 ¼ green card stock. Emboss with Floral Fantasy Cuttlebug folder.

To cut flower use George and Basic Shapes cartridge, Press “shadow blackout”, “shift” “flower2” and cut dark pink card stock at 2 ½ inch.. Repeat same flower on orange at 2 inches.

Emboss orange flower with Swiss Dots Cuttlebug folder.

Cut white paper at 2 ½ x 1 inch. Add sentiment Thank You with a clear stamp.

To assemble card, add green emboss piece to front of orange card, tie pink and white ribbon around the side of the card front and tie a bow. Trim ribbon ends.

Layer flower using pop dots and adhere to top area of card. Adhere sentiment to bottom of the card.
