1.  Cut purple card base purple.  Cut a second sheet in yellow that is slightly smaller.
2.  Tear the ends.  Then emboss the portion that will be in the front of the card.  Sand it with your Sand It Gadget and dust it off with your Dust Buddy and attach it to your card base.
3.  Tie a piece of Petaloo lace around the card.  Then tie a bow to the lace.
4.  Layer Petaloo flowers behind a frame.  You can create the sentiment in a Word document and color the fonts as you like. Attach over the large Petaloo flowers.  Then layer smaller flowers around it.

1.  Cut a card base in purple.  Cut a second sheet in white slightly smaller.  Then take a sheet of Black Magic with a purple base.
 Notice the purple Core in the Black Magic matches the Core’s Essentials?
2.  Emboss it with a number’s folder.  Sand it with your Sand it Gadget and dust if off with your Dust Buddy.  Cut it slightly smaller than the white sheet you did in Step 1.
3.  Attach Petaloo lace in two spots around the two top layers of the card and then attach to card base.
4.  Cut another sheet of white and another sheet of the same purple you used in your card base, the purple slightly smaller.  Curl cut the corners.
5.  Stamp your image on a sheet of the 110 cardstock.  Color it and fussy cut around.  Run it through your Xyron 250 and attach to the front of the purple piece.  Use pop dots to pop it from the card.
