Instructions: Prepare a card base 5 x 6". Cut a piece of purple card stock and emboss it with a Cuttlebug embossing folder and adhere to card base.
Die cut a piece of white card stock using the Eyelet Rectangles die and adhere to the card. Die cut one of the card fronts from the Purr-fect Posies Paper Collection, add foam dots to the back and add to card.
Stamp the flowers and leaves on the Deluxe Paper Shaping paper with Sepia ink, color the leaves with the vivid Chanteuse and color the flower center with the FL3 marker and the petals with the Cactus Flower. Cut out with the coordinating die, ink the edges of the leaves with the Leaf Green and the edges with the Cactus flower making it darker. Place the leaves and flowers in the matching mold and run through the die cutting machine. Put 2 of the flower petals together making one flower, add to the lower left corner and the upper right hand corner.

Score at 2 1/2", turn and score the other side at 2 1/2", burnish with a bone folder, this makes the Gate Fold. Cover the 2 inside 2 1/2" folds and the middle with some of the Purr-fect Posies paper, cover the last 2 1/2" fold with a different color of the Purr-fect paper as shown. Cut the 4 small postage stamps from the paper collection, mat on white cardstock, cut out using a pair of postage stamp scissors and adhere to the back panel. Cut out 2 of the smaller tag pictures from the paper collection, mat on white card stock and add adhesive to half and adhere to both the front and back panel as shown.
