Onto the card… I started¬†by cutting out Spellbinders grand squares largest square ( 7×7″) then I made a frame using the dies that measure 6.5″x 6.5″ and 5″x5″, once the frame is cut I then use the square die that measures 5.5″x5.5″ to give an embossed design to the frame. Matt and layer squares onto cream card.

¬†Use backing paper of your choice for the centre and glue onto base layer, add mounting foam to the frame and attach to base square. ¬†Cut out 2 Tattered Lace oriental fans and concertina fold them, I then cut out 2 Tattered Lace large lilies , 1 small lily and a Tattered Lace stamen. ¬†I cut each petal of the lily to the centre, do this on all 3 flowers, using a moulding mat and ball tool, shape all 3 flowers then layer them up, roll the stamen and glue in the centre of flower, I then sprayed with crafter companion glue and sprinkled with glitter. I then cut out Spellbinders labels 20 (3rd largest die). ¬†Glue the 2 fans to centre of card, then labels 20 then Tattered lace bloom and add any other embellishment you have. Finished card 7.5″x7.5″.
