Heavy white card stock was cut at 5 1/2 inches x 11 inches.  The paper was scored at 5 1/2 inches to create a "top-fold" card base.   The base layer green card stock was cut at 5 1/4 inches x 5 1/4 inches.   The designer paper was selected from the Cascading Fuchsia paper Collection and was cut at 5 inches x 5 inches.   The layers were adhered with double sided tape.  You can cut an additional base layer and designer paper if you want to decorate the inside of your card.  If you choose to have white space for writing a note, you can cut a 4 1/2 in. x 4 1/2 inch white card stock layer and apply to the top of your designer paper on the inside.  

A decorative corner was cut from light weight white card stock using the Fleur Borders and Pockets Die.  Designer Adhesive (dries clear) was applied to the border and adhered to the upper left hand corner of the card.   

The large fuchsia flowers were  stamped using the Cascading Fuchsia Cling Stamp Set. The stamp was embossed with  a Versamark Embossing Ink Pad and  Fine Detail Black Embossing Powder.  The flower was heat set and allowed to cool.   Using the same process, the smaller fuchsia flowers were embossed with white embossing powder .  The flowers were colored with a RV17 Copic Marker and then blended with a RV11 marker.   The flowers were lightly misted with a small amount of water and shaped using the  Deluxe Flower Shaping Kit.   Emma Lou, Creative Director of Heartfelt Creations has a wonderful video on how to shape the gorgeous fuchsia flowers.  You can view her video tutorial HERE.

The leaf was cut using  X-Press It Blending Card  Stock with the Classic Leaf Die.  The leaves were colored using Copic alcohol ink markers - Y02, G21, G24, YG63.   The leaves were lightly shaped and adhered over the border die cut.  The fuchsia flowers were adhered using Designer Adhesive (Dries Clear).   

The Sentiment was stamped with embossing ink and white embossing powder.  The sentiment was heat set.   The green and white card stock was cut with oval nesting die.    

Have a wonderful day!    
Keep crafting!
