Instructions:
1. Cut all cardstock and ribbon according to the above dimensions and fold your card base in half, running your bone folder along the edge to make a crisp crease. 2. Sponge all the edges of all the pieces of cardstock (except the Shimmery White) with Rich Razzleberry ink.

3. Stamp your Hydrangea image in Basic Black ink on the 3 ½” x 3 ½” piece of Shimmery White cardstock.

4. Color the centers of the flowers with the So Saffron marker, the leaves with the Old Olive marker and the flower petals with the Pale Plum marker.

5. While the Rich Razzleberry ink pad is still closed, squeeze it so that you get some ink on the lid. Use your blender pen and pick up some of the ink. Using a flicking motion, apply the ink to the petals of the flowers starting in the center and feathering out into the Pale Plum ink. Remember to keep the color darker towards the center of the flower.

6. Use your paper snips to cut out the image. Apply Stampin’ Dimesionals to the back (I cut one in half to put on the back of the leaves) and set aside. 7. Apply Snail to the back of the 5” x 5” piece of DSP and stick to the 51/8” x 5 1/8” piece of Rich Razzleberry. Apply more Snail to the back and stick to your Whisper White card base. 8. Apply Snail to the back of the 3 7/8” x 3 7/8” piece of DSP and stick to the 4” x 4” piece of Rich Razzleberry. Apply more adhesive to the back and apply to the card. 9. Apply Snail to both ends of the two pieces of 6” ribbon and apply to the 1 7/8” x 5” piece of Pale Plum cardstock, evenly spaced apart, wrapping the ends around the back. 10. Use you piercing tool and poke 6 holes and insert brads where shown in the photo. 11. Apply Snail to the back of this piece and apply to card. 12. Apply lots of Snail adhesive to one of the end sections of the 3 ½” x 10 ½” piece of Whisper White cardstock and apply to the card so that the accordion opens to the left, as shown in the photo.

13. Stamp your sentiment and small flower image in Basic Black ink on the 2 ¾” x 2 ¾” piece of Whisper White cardstock and color the flower the same as the first image. 14. Apply adhesive to the back and stick to one of the 3 ¼” x 3 ¼” pieces of Pale Plum cardstock. Apply more snail to the back and layer onto the 3 3/8” x 3 3/8” piece of Rich Razzleberry. Apply snail to the back again and apply to the far right section of your accordion fold, as shown in photo. 15. Apply snail to the back of the 3 1/8” x 3 1/8” piece of DSP and apply to the 3 ¼” x 3 ¼” piece of Pale Plum. Apply more snail to the back and layer onto the 3 3/8” x 3 3/8” piece of Rich Razzleberry. 16. Apply snail to both ends of the 4” piece of ribbon and apply to this layer, as shown in photo, wrapping the ends around the back. Apply snail to the back of the layer and apply to the middle section of your accordion fold. 17. Apply Snail to the last piece of 3 ¼” x 3 ¼” Pale Plum and layer it onto the last piece of Rich Razzleberry. Apply more snail to the back and stick to the far left section of your accordion folder. 18. Peel the protective paper off of the Stampin’ Dimensionals on your Hydrangea image and apply to your card as shown in photo. 19. Voila, You are Done!!!
