Adhere the floral Wonderful World Designer Paper rectangle to the center of the pink sparkle Wonderful World Designer Paper rectangle. Then, adhere the matted designer paper to the front of the Old Olive card.
Mount the "with deepest sympathy" sentiment from the Peaceful Moments Set on Block C. Ink it up with the Mossy Meadow Ink Pad. Stamp it in the center of the Old Olive rectangle closer to the left side. Leave room to cut it out.
Pick out the rectangle die that cuts out a 1-1/4" x 3-1/4" stitched rectangle from the Stitched Rectangles Dies. Put it on top of the sentiment stamped Old Olive rectangle on a platform on your Stampin' Cut & Emboss Machine so the sentiment is centered top to bottom and as close as possible to the left side. Run through the machine.
Adhere the sentiment rectangle cut out to the front of the card so the left edge is 3/8" from the left side of the card and the bottom edge is 3/4" from the bottom of the card.
Mount the English rose image from the Wonderful World Set on Block C. Ink up the leaves and stems with the side of the brush tip of the Mossy Meadow Marker. Ink up the rose with the side of the brush tip of the Flirty Flamingo Marker. BEFORE STAMPING, use the brush tip of the Melon Mambo Marker to randomly scribble around on the rose adding some slightly darker areas. Breathe on the stamp to moisten the ink. Stamp in the center of the white square.
Pick out the circle die that cuts out a 2-9/16" circle from the Stylish Shapes Dies. Put it on top of the rose on the white square on a platform on your Stampin' Cut & Emboss Machine so the rose is centered in the circle. Run through the machine.
Adhere the rose circle cut out to the front of the card so the bottom of the circle is even with the bottom of the sentiment rectangle cut out and it overlaps the right end of the sentiment label cut out. The right edge of the circle should be about 3/8" from the right edge of the card. The stem of the rose should be at a slight angle towards the lower left corner of the card.
Cut a 9" piece of the Old Olive ribbon from the Old Olive & Sahara Sand Twill Ribbon Combo Pack.
Tie a small bow in the center of the ribbon. Trim the ends.
Use a Mini Glue Dot to adhere the ribbon bow to the front of the card at a slight angle so it is centered over the end of the rose stem.
Use the mini spatula on the Take Your Pick to carefully peel up 3 pink pearls from a sheet of Pastel Pearls making sure that you get the adhesive backings as well. Adhere them to the front of the card in a straight line just above the sentiment rectangle cut out and just to the left of the rose circle cut out as shown.
