Red, White and Blue Bouquet

 Hello Friends,

It is Pam sharing with you today.

I am working on another card for July!!  And I especially like how this die worked with the pattern paper I chose.  I used one of the dies from the recently released Easter Collection.  The die is Spring Potted Flower w/Bird.  I also decided to do a fancy fold that I have never done before.

Design Steps:

1.  Use a piece of white card stock 8 1/2 x 5 1/2 and score it on the horizontal side at 1 and then at 4 3/4
2.  Fold the card on the 4 3/4 score mountain style and on the 1 inch score the valley style as show above
3.  Next cut a piece of white card stock 3 x 8 1/2 and then fold in half

4.  Cut some designer paper to cover the card: For the front cut a piece 3 5/8 x 5 3/8 (this is the rosette DP)  For the front strip cut a piece 5 3/8 x 7/8 (this is the navy DP).  Last for the separate little card front cut a piece 4 1/8 x 2 7/8 (red star DP)
5.  Glue the navy DP on the front flap and then glue the rosette DP on the card front
6.  On the small card glue the red star paper to the front
7.  Put glue only on the bottom of the small red card and glue it to the navy front flap
8.  Turn the card over and place glue only on the bottom of the small card and glue it to the bottom of the larger white card
9.  Using the Spring Potted Flower w/Bird cut out 5 white flowers, 5 red centers, 2 leaf stems and 4 single leaves in green.  Cut out the pot in the navy DP.  Arrange your potted flowers and glue together
10.  Place dimension dots on the back of the flower pot and stamp your sentiment.  Pop the flowers to the front of the card as shown below.  And then glue your sentiment above the flowers and your card is complete
