Project Instructions: 
Other products: White & Red Card Stock, Versa Mark, Red Embossing Powder
Watch this video to learn how to create flowers with the Deluxe Flower Shaping Kit.
Instructions: Begin with a piece of White Card stock 10" x 7", on the 10" side, score at 2 1/2" and 7 1/2". Those are the two small sides that when folded will be the gate fold. Using the Regal Borders and Pockets die, run it through your machine on both sides, place a smaller piece of red card stock on the back side and glue down. For the inside of your card locate the piece from the Berry Cafe paper Collection, trim keeping the center as is and the ends, adhere all 3 of those on red card stock and adhere to card as shown. Find the paper with all the pre-colored images and cut out 2 of the Strawberry vines, the large flower with the bee for the front and set aside. Begin by glueing down the 2 strawberry vines first, apply glitter and set aside to dry. Take a piece of the red card stock 1 1/2" x 11", this will be the band to hold the card shut, fold and glue making sure it isn't too lose and add the flower you cut out to the center. Stamp the flowers and leaves, color and cut out, shape and adhere to the band as shown. Add Prills and glitter to the flower centers and leaves. Back to the inside, chose your sentiment, trim and add to the bottom.
Thanks so much for dropping by, be sure and check out my team mates for more inspiration!!!

Both of these are adorable. I've had a very stressful day today. My desktop computer is acting up and I fear I will have to purchase a new one.
