Mount the Easter sentiment from the Suite Sayings Set on Block D. Ink it up with the Mint Macaron Ink Pad. Stamp it on the right side of the white rectangle about 1/2" from the top and right edges. Allow to dry.
Mount the bunch of flowers on a stem image from the Avant Garden Photopolymer Set on Block H. Ink up the flower bunch on top and 1/2 of the stem with the VersaMark Pad. Stamp it just to the left of the sentiment at a slight angle so the bottom of the stem will be about 3/4" from the bottom edge. Re-ink the flower bunch on top and 1/2 of the stem with the VersaMark Pad and stamp the flower again at a slight angle the other direction next to the first stamped flower so the stem ends about 3/4" from the bottom edge. Re-ink the flower bunch on top and 2/3 of the stem with the VersaMark Pad. Stamp the flower again in the center of the first two flowers so the bottom of the stem is about 3/4" from the bottom edge.
Sprinkle on Clear Stampin' Emboss Powder and tap off excess. Return the excess to the jar.
Use the Heat Tool to melt the embossing powder completely. It will be smooth and shiny when melted.
Rub the tip of a Sponge Dauber across the open Mint Macaron Ink Pad. Then, lightly rub the ink onto and around the embossed flowers. Use a clean tissue or paper towel to wipe off any ink that puddles on top of the embossed areas. When you are done adding color, you can rinse the Sponge Dauber under running water until the water runs clear and then allow the Sponge Dauber to air dry before using it again.
Mount the scatter of dots image from the Avant Garden Set on Block B. Ink it up with the Mint Macaron Ink Pad and randomly stamp it around the tops of the flowers several times. Remember to re-ink the stamp each time.
Mount the small stem of multiple leaves image from the Avant Garden Set on Block A. Ink it up with the Mint Macaron Ink Pad. Stamp it several times along the base of the flower stems remembering to re-ink each time.
Use a clean tissue or paper towel to wipe off any excess ink that has puddled on the embossed areas.
Adhere the stamped and embossed white layer to the large Mint Macaron rectangle and then to the front of the Whisper White Thick card.
Pick out the long skinny filigree thinlit from the Flourish Thinlits. Place the skinny piece of Mint Macaron Card Stock on the Precision Base Plate on top of the Big Shot Platform. Make sure the card stock is running horizontally across the Precision Base Plate. Place the filigree thinlit on top of the card stock horizontally. Place another Cutting Pad on top and run through the Big Shot a couple of times. Use the Die Brush to remove the tiny pieces.
Place the filigree cut out upside down on one side of a Silicone Craft Sheet. Cut a Stamping Sponge into quarters and clamp the triangle edge of one quarter in a large binder clip. Squeeze a small amount of Multipurpose Liquid Glue on one corner of the Silicone Craft Sheet. Dab the sponge into the glue and then lightly onto the back of the filigree cut out. Flip the filigree cut out over and adhere it to the bottom of the card front so it covers the bottom of the flower stems.
Pick out the curved line of tiny butterflies thinlit from the Timeless Tags Thinlits. Place the scrap piece of Mint Macaron Glimmer Paper on the Precision Base Plate on top of the Platform on your Big Shot. Place the butterflies thinlit on top. Place a Cutting Pad on top and run through the Big Shot. Use the Die Brush to remove the tiny butterflies.
Use Glue Dots or small dabs of Fine-Tip Glue Pen to adhere three of the glitter butterflies randomly around on the card front. If you have extra butterflies, save them for another project.
Cut a 4" piece of silver ribbon from the 3/8" Metallic Ribbon Combo Pack. Tie a half knot in the center. Trim the ends. Adhere to the base of the flower stems using a Mini Glue Dot.
