Awaken your senses dulled from the winter season with an enchanting and deeply hued decorative paper collection filled with sweet and amiable pansy flowers, along with whimsical fluttering butterflies! Beautiful blues, happy yellows and deep purples set the tone for charming pansy clusters and bouquets encompassed in finely illustrated details from lace like accents to intricate brocades! A wonderful compilation of beautifully detailed cling stamp sets and coordinating dies bring an assortment of sprightly pansy floral sprays, perky arrangements, as well as elegant pansy frames, perfect for adding a cheerful springtime feel to all of your handmade greeting cards, layouts and altered art pieces. The coordinating pansy flower stamp, die, and flower shaping mold come together to create several differing sized pansy flowers ideal for creating your very own dimensional pansy bouquets as realistic as those found in the flower bed!

Instructions:
Card size: 6 X 6” See template for instruction on making this center step card, I made it to specially fit the large tag.  Make the center step card base and use decorative paper for the back center panel.  Use purple and lavender card stocks for the 2 sides and the front bottom.  Cut a Sweetheart border for the bottom from white.  Cut a large tag from purple, Cut a Diamonds and Lace from lavender then glue it to the purple tag.  Punch hole at the top and use a hole re-enforcer from Tickets and Tags out of white.  Glue it to hole.  Cut a Lacy Diamond out of white and glue to the center of Diamonds and Lace die cut.  Stamp For My Friend with Majestic Violet and cut it out using the Diamonds Basics smallest die.  Foam tape the sentiment to the Lacy Diamond.  Add pearls to the top of tag and to the top of Sweetheart Border.
Stamp cart, extra wheel for cart, fillers, fence using Memento London Gray, die cut and color with Copic Markers.  Stamp, sponge color and die cut Tulip Time petals, and leaves using Fern Green for leaves, Magenta hue and Majestic Violet for flowers.  Light tulips are sponged with Pink Peony and dark pink tulips with Magenta Hue.  Violet tulips with Majestic  Violet.  Run them through the die cutting machine in the shaping mold then push down in the center of each to raise petals upward.  Use the medium size groove tool to round each petal and use the small groove tool to round stems and also to make leaves wavy.   Glue 2 flowers together for each finished flower.  Attach to stem by rounding stem end and then pushing it backward (or forward, your choice) to make a small “bowl” for the flower to sit in.   Glitter all flowers, stamped and formed.
Stipple glue on side panels of card base and on tag and add Ultrafine glitter.  Glue fence to tag at the bottom and foam tape flowers in front of it. Trim fence at sides to fit tag.  Decorate sides of card base with tulips, large to small (cut off the leaves of some and place them where needed) and top with purple heather stocks.  Stuff cart with fillers and leaves.  Add extra wheel with foam tape.  Glue to card front at the bottom left side.  Add a ribbon to the tag and make a small bow with more ribbon for the bottom of tulip “bouquet” on the right side of card.
