 Hi and welcome!

My card today is bright and beautiful just like the weather we've been having. I love hollyhocks! 

Instructions: Accordion card size is 4 1/4 x 5 1/2”. Score and fold 8 1/4 x 5 1/2” white cardstock at 2 1/8” (mountain fold), 3 1/8” (valley fold), 5 1/8” (mountain fold) and 6 1/8” (valley fold). Cut Lovely Lipstick cardstock 2x to 2 7/8 x 5 1/4”, cut white cardstock 2x t 2 5/8 x 5” and one more at 1 3/4 x 5 1/4”. Cut a strip of yellow paper from the Hollyhock Garden Paper Collection 1 1/4 x 5”. Dry emboss one of the white 2 5/8 x 5” layers and the yellow layer using any embossing folder. Adhere the white embossed layer to one of the colored cardstock panels and adhere to the card front. Adhere the second white layer to the colored cardstock layer and adhere the yellow embossed strip to the right side of the white panel. Stamp the sentiment ‘For My Friend’ from the Just for You Sentiments Cling Stamp using Lovely Lipstick ink set on the left side of the panel. Stamp the sentiment ‘I appreciate you so much’ from the Thank You Sentiments Cling Stamp set using Lovely Lipstick ink on the 1 3/4 x 5 1/4 white cardstock and adhere to the inside of the card. Stamp the ‘thank you’ sentiment from the Thank You Sentiments Cling Stamp set on white cardstock using the same ink and diecut using the smallest arrow die from the Arrows and Banners Die set. Diecut the next size arrow from Lovely Lipstick Cardstock, trim and adhere behind the white arrow. Adhere to the top of the card front as shown using dimensional squares.

Stamp the stem from the Hollyhock Fence Cling Stamp set on white cardstock using Memento Tuxedo Black ink, color using Stampin’ Blend markers Light Granny Apple Green and Light Lovely Lipstick, diecut with the coordinating die and lightly shape using the Deluxe Flower Shaping Kit. Add a dot of glue in the flower centers and sprinkle with You Had Me at Yellow prills. Sponge with dries clear adhesive and sprinkle with Rajni Chawla’s crystal clear glitter. Adhere to the yellow designer paper using dimensional squares and dries clear adhesive. 

Stamp the Hollyhock Petals & Leaves on Deluxe Flower Shaping paper using Lovely Lipstick and Leaf green inks, color with the same inks and diecut using the coordinating dies. Color the backs of the flowers, too. Place the flowers and leaves in the Hollyhock Shaping Mold and run through the diecut machine.
