  1. Cut the edge of 1 Very Vanilla CS with “vine” frame lit die. Adhere to Cajun Craze card front. Adhere 2nd piece to inside of card.
  2. Stamp Very Vanilla with Mint Macron using irregular stamp from Work of Art set—stamping off first. Stamp birthday greeting in Mossy Meadow over Mint Macron.
  3. Using label framelits #2 & #3, cut out the DSP and the sentiment. Adhere as shown. 
  4. Stamp leaf veins and cut out large and small leaves. 
  5. Cut out 2 large flowers in Hello Honey and Mint Macron and cut out the insides of the flowers in 2 sizes out of each color. 
  6. Curl petals of flowers downward. Alternate color of stamens and flowers and adhere all parts with glue dots. Stack 2 dimensional on back of flower and adhere to card.
  7. Place leaves as shown. Adhere candy dots.
1.*I used Label Collections Framelits (retired). After I cut out the sentiment         and DSP I “squared” off each along the bottom and top to give it a straight    edge.
2. Curling flowers using bone folder. 
1.Stack dimensionals to make the flower stand up higher.

2. I was short candy dots, so I used what I had—brads. I cut off the “little                  legs” and used a glue dot to adhere. Works in a pinch but they don’t lay as          flat as the real thing!

Happy stampin’,
