Flowering Flourishes Tutorial

I've had some requests from readers on how to make some of the cards I showcase on my blog.  With this in mind I'm going to try, where possible, to pop little tutorials on here so you can remake the card should you so wish.  Here is the first.

Here is the card we are going to make, it's a 6 x 6 and it uses Flowering Flourishes, Petite Petals and Teeny tiny sentiments stamp sets.

You will also need;
Crushed Curry Card
Whisper White Card
Gumball Green Ink
Crushed Curry Ink
Word Window Punch
Modern Label Punch
Petite Petals Punch
Crushed Curry Candy dots
Paper Trimmer
Score board

Make a base card measuring 6" x 6", you can make this from A4 card by cutting one piece of card 6"x8"

Score this card on the long side at 2"
Fold along the score line
Then cut a piece measuring 6"x6".  Glue this to the flap of your 6"x8" piece of card and you'll have your 6"x6" card base.
Cut two pieces of whisper white card measuring 5 3/4" x 5 3/4"
Glue one of these to the inside of your base card
On the second square of whisper white card stamp out the large and medium Flourishes corner to corner in gumball green.
On a separate piece of whisper white stamp out five petite petals in crushed curry and punch these out using the petite petals punch.
Using foam pads add these along your flourishes, add a few pearls to the centre of your petite petals and along some of the flourishes as shown above.
Stamp out the sentiment using the Teeny Tiny sentiments stamp and punch out using the word window, punch out a modern label in crushed curry and glue your sentiment to this.
Place the sentiment using foam pads to the bottom right of your card.  To the top left hand corner add 3 candy dots, then stick the whole thing to the front of your base card.
