Instructions
 (NB; with nesting dies No.1 being the smallest)

Die-cut the following pieces

  • Rain Cardstock - Layered Frame & the No.4 Oval (emboss the oval with the Tiny Dots folder)
  • Pattern Paper - Tapestry - No.2 Mannequin (largest) I used the bottom left corner of the paper, place a tiny strip of pearls around the neck.


 Cut the base card from the 12" x 12" White cardstock measuring 15cm x 21cm fold in half & score, cut a pattern background panel to 10cm x 14.5cm & attach to the card front.
 Using a fine tip glue adhere the frame die-cut to the pattern panel.
Trim the small rose stems & wrap one of the stems around to secure all three & adhere with glue to the card front 
 Attach the Mannequin to the embossed oval & mount using foam tape to the card front.
 Next adhere the large flower over the stems of the small roses & a small bow in between
Stamp a sentiment onto a piece of leftover cardstock, cut into a banner & blend the edge with Distress Ink - Spun Sugar, place a piece of foam tape to the middle of the banner & glue either end down slightly curling the right end up.
