Adhere the piece of Delightful Daisy Designer Paper to the front of the Wisteria Wonder card.
Place the large white rectangle on top of the Stampin' Pierce Mat. The mat will help make sure that you get a clean, crisp stamped image.
Mount the large "good friends" sentiment from the Lovely Friends Set on Block F. Ink it up with the Wisteria Wonder Ink Pad. Stamp it on the large white rectangle.
Pick out the long scalloped edge thinlit from the Seasonal Layers Thinlits. Place the strip of Wisteria Wonder on the Cutting Pad on top of the Magnetic Platform on the Big Shot. Place the scalloped edge thinlit on top so it will cut along one long edge. Place another Cutting Pad on top and run through the Big Shot.
Adhere the scalloped edge piece to the back of the white sentiment rectangle along the bottom so that the scallops just peek out along the bottom. Trim off excess cardstock on the sides.
Cut three pieces of Old Olive Baker's Twine each 4-1/4" long.
Lay the twine pieces across the bottom of the sentiment rectangle so they cover the seam between the Whisper White and Wisteria Wonder Cardstocks. Flip the piece over and fold the ends of the twine over. Adhere them in place with pieces of Tear & Tape Adhesive across the ends.
Remove the protective backing from the Tear & Tape strips and add more SNAIL to the back of piece. Adhere the piece to the front of the card so it is centered.
Draw a little arrow pointing up in one corner of the skinny strip of white cardstock with the pencil.
Mount the larger solid flower image from the Lovely Friends Set on Block B. The image is marked with a tiny "2a" on the plastic sheet that the images are stuck to. Make sure the arrow point molded onto the edge of the stamp is pointing up. Ink up the stamp with the Wisteria Wonder Ink Pad. Stamp off onto scratch paper one time. Then, stamp onto one end of the skinny strip of white cardstock so that the arrow you drew and the arrow on the stamp are both pointing up. Re-ink the stamp, stamp off once, and stamp again on the other end of the white strip, again making sure all arrows are pointing up.
Mount the larger detail flower image from the Lovely Friends Set on Block B. The image is marked with a tiny "2b" on the plastic sheet that the images are stuck to. Make sure the arrow point molded onto the edge of the stamp is pointing up. Ink up the stamp with the Wisteria Wonder Ink Pad. Stamp over one of the previously stamped flower images so that the arrow you drew and the arrow on the stamp are both pointing up. Re-ink the stamp and stamp again over the other previously stamped flower, again making sure all arrows are pointing up.
Pick out the matching large flower thinlit from the Lovely Laurel Thinlits. Place the stamped flower images on the Cutting Pad on top of the Magnetic Platform on the Big Shot. Place the thinlit on top of one of the flowers so it is centered. To make it easier to line things up, make sure the little metal tab on the thinlit and the arrow you drew on the cardstock are all pointing up. Place another Cutting Pad on top and run through the Big Shot. Repeat with the other flower image.
Pick out the small leaf sprig thnlit from the Lovely Laurel Thinlits. Place the strip of Old Olive Cardstock on the Precision Plate on top of the Platform on the Big Shot. Place the leaf sprig thinlit on top on one end. Place a Cutting Pad on top and run through the Big Shot a couple of times. Use the Die Brush to remove the cardstock. Repeat two more times so you have a total of 3 leaf sprigs.
Put some SNAIL Adhesive on the back of one of the flowers. Adhere one of the leaf sprigs to it so that the leaf sprig is sticking out on the lower left side. Adhere the flower to the card front so it is just to the left of the "F" in the word "Find."
Adhere the remaining two leaf sprigs to the back of the other flower using Stampin' Dimensionals so that the leaf sprigs are sticking up from the upper left side of the flower and they overlap a bit. Remove the protective backings from the Dimensionals and adhere the flower to the card front so it overlaps the previous flower on the upper left.
Adhere a small Old Olive Glitter Enamel Dot to the center of each flower.
Cut a 7" piece of Old Olive Baker's Twine. Tie a small bow and trim the ends. Adhere the bow to the Baker's Twine on the left side of the card using a Mini Glue Dot.
