Instructions: Cut a piece of White pearl metallic cardstock 6” x 12”. Score at 3” and 9” and fold to create a 6” square gatefold card. Cut the lavender paper from the paper collection as follows: 4 pieces 2 7/8” x 5 7/8” each and one piece 5 7/8” x 5 7/8”. Use the outer edge of the decorative Sweetheart Borders die to cut the two folded panels on the card and all of the designer 2 7/8” x 5 7/8” pieces. Diecut the decorative Sweetheart die twice from white pearl metallic cardstock and cut the border die once.
Adhere magnets on both panels of the gatefold and also on the base so the card closes securely. Ink the edges of all the inside designer papers with Deep Purple ink. Adhere the top border die behind the 5 7/8” x 5 7/8” panel and adhere all the designer papers to the card base using dries clear adhesive. Adhere the decorative Sweetheart diecuts to the front of the card as shown. 

Cut the sprays from the paper collection using coordinating dies. Diecut them again from white cardstock and adhere together to form a stronger spray. Spritz with water and shape with the Deluxe Flower Shaping Kit.
Stamp the lush lilac flowers on white cardstock using Archival Deep Purple ink, color with Memento Lulu Lavender and diecut using the coordinating die. Ink the edges of all the flowers with Deep Purple. Place face down in the Lilac 3D Mold, spritz with water and run through the die cutting machine. Place on the molding mat and use a stylus to press down in the center of each flower. When dry, sponge with dries clear adhesive and sprinkle with Rajni Chawla’s Crystal Clear glitter. Put a small drop of glue in the flower centers and sprinkle with I Cannot Tell a Lilac Prills. Adhere the flowers to the lilac swirl using a hot glue gun and add prills to the lilacs on the swirl.  Using the dimensional dots, adhere the lilac swirls to the card base as shown. Add ultrafine transparent glitter to the leaves.  

Using the Luggage and Tags die, cut two of the smaller tags, ink the edges with Deep Purple ink and adhere inside the front card panels. 
You can write your greeting on white cardstock and add it 
to the center of the inside.
