Instructions: Card size is 6 x 6”. Score 12 x 6” Crumb cake cardstock at 6” and fold to create tent fold card base. Cut brown cardstock 5 7/8 x 5 7/8” 2x and adhere one piece to card base front using dries clear adhesive and one to the inside of the card. Cut paper from the French Cottage Collection 5 3/5 x 5 3/4” 2x, ink the edges with Vintage Photo ink and distress using distressing tool. Adhere one to the card front and one to the inside.  

Stamp vine and small planter from French Cottage 'scapes Cling Stamp Set and bicycle, case and bouquet from Cottage Lifestyle Cling Stamp Set on watercolor paper using Jet Black ink. Color using Zig markers and diecut using coordinating dies. Diecut the bicycle, small planter, case and bouquet two more times from black cardstock and adhere the layers together for stability. Cover the bicycle, case, bouquet and planter with VersaMark, completely cover with Ultra Thick Clear Embossing Powder and heat set using Heat It tool. Repeat the process one or two times until a nice thick smooth glossy finish is achieved. Adhere to card base using multiple layers of dimensional squares.      

Add Mossy Meadow ink to the leaves on the vine and shape using Deluxe Flower Shaping Kit. Stamp the little flowers on Deluxe Flower Shaping paper using Cactus Flower Ink, color using the same ink, diecut using coordinating die and shape using the Deluxe Flower Shaping kit. Pierce the flower centers using groove golf tool and insert stamen. Sponge the flowers with dries clear adhesive and dip in the transparent crystal glitter. Sponge the vine leaves and sprinkle with Lichen glitter. Adhere the flowers on the vine and adhere to card using hot glue.   

Dot the paper lightly here and there with glue and sprinkle with Lichen glitter.
