Hi everyone, Steph here today and I'm excited to be working with the Scor-Pal  and Clearsnap  teams this month.

Cut brown cardstock to 5 1/2" x 11".
Corner round all edges.

Score at 2 3/4" and 5 1/2" and fold on the scored lines.
Cut a second piece of brown cardstock 5 1/2" X 5 1/2" and adhere to the 2 3/4" section using Scor-tape.

Cut pink cardstock 5 1/4" x 5 1/4".
Score every 1/4" across the cardstock.
Rotate cardstock 90 degrees and score every 1/4" across.

Ink around the edges of the pink cardstock using ColorBox Pinkolicious Archival Dye Ink.

Cut pink cardstock 4" x 4" and ink the edges with Pinkolicous Archival Dye Ink.
Mat with brown cardstock cut 4 1/2" x 4 1/2".
Wrap brown ribbon around the panel and add to card with foam adhesives for dimension.

Stamp a large flower image using ColorBox Chalk Ink - Blackbird.
Emboss with Black Embossing Powder.
Color the flower using ColorBox Pinkolicious Archival Dye Ink.
Add some definitition by adding ColorBox Very Berry Archival Dye Ink  to the center of the flower.
Color the leaves using ColorBox  Jalapeno Dye Ink.
Add some definition by adding ColorBox Grasshopper Archival Dye Ink to the bottom edges of the leaves.
Add Green Apple Smooch Ink to the flower stem.
Paint Pink Fizz Smooch Glitz onto the flower, with a heavier concentration in the center of the flower.
Cut out the flower and leaves.
Remove some of the leaves and reposition the leaves once the flower has been added to the card with foam adhesives for dimension.

Stamp a sentiment using Blackbird Chalk Ink and emboss with Black Embossing Powder.
Ink edges with Pinkolicous Ink and mat with brown cardstock.
Add to card base using foam adhesives - this helps the card stand.

Thanks for stopping by today.

A lovely flower on the card. I like the embossed background. Perhaps one or two more photos would have helped me understand how this card is folded.
