My colours for this card: Purple and Pink
Theme: Flowers and hugs ( just perfect for a friend )

Sirio Vino Colour Card 290gsm - outer flower

Tintoretto Anice Card 250gsm - the very Centre of the flower
Lavender Purple Pure Pearl 300gsm - for the word die hugs

Glue used was Anita's Tacky PVA GLue

First gather all your card together, you don't have to use the same colours as I have chosen, this card is incredibly versatile and easy to change to each persons tastes and preferences. Then you'll want to choose your dies, I've used flower dies from Julie Hickey Designs: Beautiful Blooms.

With your back ground piece of card (Powder Purple Pure Pearl 300gsm), a scoring tool, and a scoring board, you will score 2 inches then 2 and a half inches then score again at 6 inches and 6 and a half inches.

Next you'll want to make your flowers which are in 3 parts. I choose Sirio Vino Colour Card for the outer/ base of my flower as I wanted it to contrast against the powder purple. The outline of the flower I used Powder Purple Pure Pearl Card and finished with Tintoretto Anice Card as Flower's pistil.
Then line 3 flowers on each line along the top and bottom of the card, glue them down either using Anita's Tacky glue like myself or Stick it! Double Sided tape works well too.
Then glue the hugs sentiment in the middle
