The card base is an A6 portrait of Peach Parfait, matted with Riding Hood Red. After brayering one side of the Square Lattice embossing folder with Baja Breeze ink a mat of Whisper White card was sandwiched inside it and run through the Big Shot. This mat was adhered direct to the card front. The large flower was repeatedly stamped using the rock and roll technique with Peach Parfait and Riding Hood Red inks onto Whisper White card. These were cut out by hand and layered using dimensionals with a Basic Rhinestone in the centre of each to finish. Lucky Limeade and Always Artichoke inks were used to stamp the leaves onto Whisper White card, also using the rock and roll technique and also cut out by hand. The flowers and leaves were popped up on the card front using dimensionals. Using the Basic Black Marker the flowers from the Oval All set were selectively inked and stamped. The Blender Pen was used to colour the flowers with Peach Parfait and Riding Hood Red inks. A different sentiment was added to the flowers in Riding Hood Red ink using the Stamp-a-ma-jig for placement and then the image was punched out with the Large Oval. This was adhered direct to a Scallop Oval punched from Peach Parfait card and popped up on dimensionals on the card front.
