Make sure you have Grid Paper under the large Whisper White rectangle before stamping to protect your work surface from ink.
Miount the long bar of little dots image from the Petal Palette Set on Block H. Ink it up wit the Seaside Spray Ink Pad. Stamp it 2 times vertically down the left side of the horizontal, large white rectangle. The first set of dots should be about 1/4" from the left edge and the second set should overlap the first on the right edge just a bit. Remember to re-ink the stamp each time. The image will go off the top and bottom edges of the cardstock.
Mount the large leaf spray image on Block E. Ink it up with the Pear Pizzazz Ink Pad. Stamp it in the lower right corner of the horizontal white rectangle so the stem goes off the right edge of the cardstock and the bottom leaf almost touches the bottom edge.
Adhere the stamped white rectangle to the large Seaside Spray rectangle.
Cut a 5" piece of the Pear Pizzazz 3/8" Shimmer Ribbon.
Lay the ribbon across the cardstock layers so it covers the center of the lines of stamped dots. Flip the layers over and fold the ends of the ribbon over. Adhere the ends of the ribbon in place with pieces of Tear & Tape Adhesive.
Remove the protective backing from the Tear & Tape strips and add SNAIL to the back of the Seaside Spray rectangle. Adhere it to the front of the Pear Pizzazz card.
Mount the small, single, solid flower image from the Petal Palette Set on Block A. Ink it up with the Seaside Spray Ink Pad. Stamp it three times on the 1-1/4" x 4" strip of white cardstock. Remember to re-ink the stamp each time. Leave some room between each image to cut them out in a later step.
Pick out the matching flower die from the Petals & More Dies. Place the stamped flowers strip on a Cutting Pad on top of the Magnetic Platform on your Big Shot. Place the flower die on top so it is centered over one of the flower images. Place another Cutting Pad on top and run through the Big Shot. Repeat until you have cut out all 3 flowers.
Adhere two of the flowers flat (using SNAIL) to the right side of the stamped leaf spray on the card front. Use a Mini Stampin' Dimensional to adhere the third flower to the leaf spray.
Mount the sentiment of choice from the Petal Palette Set on Block G. Ink it up with the Pear Pizzazz Ink Pad. Stamp it in the center of the skinny white rectangle.
Pick out the long, skinny, open framelit from the Petals & More Dies. Place the stamped sentiment rectangle on the Cutting Pad on the Magnetic Platform on the Big Shot. Place the die on top so it is centered over the sentiment. Place a Cutting Pad on top and run through the Big Shot.
Pick out the long, skinny lattice work die from the Petals & More Dies. Place the skinny strip of Seaside Spray Cardstock on the Precision Base Plate on top of the Platform on the Big Shot. Place the die on top and then put a Cutting Pad on top and run through the Big Shot a couple of times. Use the Die Brush and paper-piercing tool on the Take Your Pick to remove the pieces.
Adhere the sentiment label cut out to the center of the lattice work cut out.
Adhere the matted sentiment label to the front of the card so the left side of the lattice work cut out almost touches the ribbon and the top of the matted label is about 3/4" from the top edge.
Use the mini spatula on the Take Your Pick to carefully peel up three small rhinestones from a sheet of Clear Rhinestone Basic Jewels making sure that you get the adhesive backings as well. Adhere them to the centers of the flowers.
Cut a 3-1/2" piece of the Pear Pizzazz 3/8" Shimmer Ribbon.
Tie a half knot in the center of the ribbon. Trim the ends.
Use a Mini Glue Dot to adhere the ribbon knot to the ribbon already on the card so it is even with the matted sentiment label cut out.
