Designer Notes:

1. Make card from white cardstock. Die cut petals from white cardstock

2. Stamp “tree” image onto each petal with your watermark pad. Emboss with clear embossing powder to create a resist and ink over each petal with a different color ink from the petal point ink pad. Wipe over each petal with a dry towel to reveal resist image.

3. Adhere petals to card base to create a flower. Hot glue buttons to create the flower’s center.

4: Attach stray buttons in upper right and lower left corners to create flow. Stamp “hi” sentiment.
