  • Cut Core-Dinations card into a strip measuring 5 1/2 inches by 11 inches and fold in half to form card base.

    Cut two 5 1/4 inch squares from the patterned paper.
    From the first, tear along the top and left side to reveal the core on the pink side and on the second tear away all four sides on the pale side of the paper.
    Spray both pieces with water and curl up the torn edges of both pieces.
    Put aside until thoroughly dry.

  • Layer the pink patterned piece to the card base with the curled corner sitting in the top left hand corner of the card.
    Layer the lighter piece over this with the bottom right curled corner positioned more to the bottom right corner of the base card.

  • From the A4 white card cut a circle with a diameter of 3 1/2 inches.
    Layer three of the Prima flowers and two of the leaves along one edge and put aside.
    Stamp the Magnolia stamped image twice onto the white card and the Pitch Black inkpad.
    Punch out a scalloped circle from the centre of one of the stamped images then three 1 inch circles from the second image.

  • Colour the stamped sections of the 1 inch circles and then adhere with foam squares to the scalloped circle, matching both images.

  • Use one of the copic markers to ink the edges of the scalloped circle then attach to the 3 1/2 inch circle using foam squares.
    Create a sentiment using a computer or alternative device and mat with a piece of the Core-Dinations card.

  • Attach sentiment to the section of the scalloped circle that is not adorned and add foam squares to the other side to ensure the sentiment lays flat.
    Attach the whole piece to the centre of the pale patterned paper square on the card base.

  • Finally, add a rhinestone to the first letter of the sentiment.
