I love the vellum doilies in the Peony Garden suite. By adding dimensionals to back of card front, it provides more depth to card front.

Card Base: Cut Gray Granite 8 ½ X 11 paper in half widthwise. You now have two pieces 8 ½ X 5 ½ . Fold one of the pieces in half lengthwise for your card front. The card front now measures 4 ¼ X 5 ½.

Card Mat: Cut Petal Pink paper 4 X 5 1/4

Card Front: Cut Peony Garden print paper 3 7/8 X 5 ⅛. Use the Layering Square that has an opening measuring 2 ⅜ square to cut a square in the upper right hand corner of the card front.

Attach the vellum doily to the back of the card front over the square opening. I attached it with tear & tape. Place Stampin Dimensionals to the back of the card front, making sure none of them are seen through the opening. Attach card front to Petal Pink card mat. Attach this piece to Gray Granite card base.

Stamp mid sized flower with Petal Pink ink on Whisper White paper. Die cut flower with die from Peony dies. Attach this die cut flower to the lower left corner of the vellum window. I used Wink of Stella on the darker part of the flower.

Attach 3 elegant faceted gems to the card front.

That’s it; you have finished your card front. Wasn’t that easy? For the inside of your card, cut a piece of Whisper White 4 X 5 ¼. Stamp a sentiment or write a note before attaching this piece inside your card.
