Adhere the stamped white rectangle to the center of the large Petal Pink rectangle and then to the front of the Fresh Freesia card.
Unlock the Lovely Labels Pick A Punch. Slide one short edge of one of the designer paper strips into the left side of the punch (the side of the punch with the bumpier edge) as far as it will go and get it centered. Punch. Repeat with the other end. Repeat with the other two designer paper strips.
Adhere the two Petal Pink punched designer paper strips to the front of the card so the left ends are very close together and the right ends are spread apart a bit and they cover the bottom of the top butterfly image and the top of the bottom butterfly image on the left side.
Adhere the punched Fresh Freesia designer paper to the card front so it overlaps the other two strips as shown.
