Instructions:
Card Base Preparation
Fold the flaps on the  17”x 5.5” card base from the White Foldout Card packet. For help on folding the card, watch the video tutorial on foldout cards here : https://youtu.be/wxX94X84kUo. Use the yellow patterned background paper from the Backyard Blossoms Paper Collection pad to cut out the following: One 3 3/4” x 4 1/4” rectangle for the front of the front flap, One 4 1/2” x 4 1/4” rectangle for the front of the middle flap, One 4 1/4” x 5 1/4” for the back of the third flap, One 4 1/2” x 5 1/2” for the front of the back of the card base. 
Use the purple coneflower bouquet patterned background paper from the Backyard Blossom Paper Collection pad to cut out the following: One 3 3/4” x 4 1/4” rectangle for the back of the front flap, One  4 1/2” x 4 1/4” rectangle for the back of the middle flap, One 3 1/2” x 4 1/4” for the back pocket, and One 4 1/2” x 5 1/2” for the back of the card. 

Embellishment Cutting
Using the simple curved dies from the Fleur Border Basics Craft Dies set, die cut the tops of each cut rectangle from both patterned papers to line up and match their assigned flaps and sides all except for the back card base rectangles. Use the video on Foldout Cards to learn how to use and line up the Fleur Border Basics Craft Dies set here: https://youtu.be/wxX94X84kUo. 
Using both sets of the smaller decorative dies from the Fleur Border Basics Craft Dies set, die cut one of each for three sets of decorative borders using the purple patterned background paper (non floral) from the Backyard Blossoms Paper Collection (One set for each of the three flaps). From the same paper, use the circular doily die from the Butterfly Kisses Decorative Die set to die cut two doilies. Cut these in half and set aside. 

Stamping
From the Butterfly Kisses Cling Stamp set, stamp one butterfly and die cut with the coordinating Butterfly Kisses Decorative Craft Die. From the Backyard Blossoms Cling Stamp set, stamp and die cut the following with their coordinating dies from the Backyard Blossoms Craft Die set: Two coneflowers, Two small coneflower fields, Two sprays and One wheat field. Color the die cut stamped images with the Faber-Castell pencils in the colors listed above as suggested. Take both coneflowers and use the Deluxe Flower Shaping Kit to shape the petals. Using Designer Dries clear, adhere Go Man Go Prills to the centers of the two coneflower centers and allow to dry.

Sentiments and Strips
From the Backyard Blossoms Collection paper pad, cut out the following: One “Always and Forever” strip, One “Cherished Days” strip, One purple fleur border strip, One orange fleur border strip, One orange coneflower strip and One “A gift from the Heart” sentiment. Using the Luggage and Tags Die set, die cut a yellow tag with pink and yellow coneflowers and use scissors to thread the yellow satin ribbon through the hole and tie by looping through. 

Assembling
Take the three decorative Fleur Border Basics die cut sets that were cut out from the purple background pattern paper and use the Designer Dries Clear adhesive or double sided adhesive tape to adhere each set to the tops of each of the three folds. One set per fold, making sure that the patterned side is facing outward and not towards each other. Take the die cut yellow patterned background paper and adhere to their designated flaps: One for the front flap, One for the front of the middle flap, One for the back of the third flap and one rectangle piece for the front of the card base and adhere, overlapping the top purple borders. Repeat the same process for the remaining sides using the die cut purple coneflower bouquet patterned background paper from the Backyard Blossom Paper Collection pad. This includes the very back of the card.

Take half of a Butterfly Kisses Decorative Die doily and adhere to the top of the back of the card with the yellow patterned paper with the lace portion centered and sticking above the card. With a paper trimmer, cut out a 5” x 4” ephemera piece with a purple floral bouquet border and orange and yellow coneflowers in an oval with a yellow background and adhere to the front side of the back of the card base, overlapping the bottom portion of the doily. For the purple coneflower bouquet patterned background paper pocket piece, use adhesive on the left, bottom and right edges only to create a fold pocket and adhere to the yellow patterned side of the front of the back of the card, aligning the edges to the card edges. Allow to dry. This pocket is for the tag.

Take the purple fleur border strip and adhere up 1/4” from the bottom edge of the card and across the front flap. Repeat this step for the back of the second flap and back of the third flap (the yellow side) so it appears continuous. Take the “Cherished Days” strip and adhere in the same fashion to the back of the front flap and the front of the second flap. Take the orange fleur strip and adhere to the front of the third flap (the purple bouquet side) and on top of the purple bouquet pocket. 

Take one of the small finished Backyard Blossoms coneflower fields and adhere to the front flap, towards the right edge of the card, leaving about 1/4”. Cut the literal “Always and Forever” sentiment from the strip and adhere it over top of the bottom stems of the coneflower field using 3D foam mounting tape. The sentiment should measure about three inches and positioned towards the right edge as well, with the edge almost touching the right edge of the card flap. Take half of a Butterfly Kisses die cut doily and use 3D foam mounting tape to adhere it to the left edge of the front flap, aligning the straight cut side along the left edge of the card. The doily will overlap the last couple of coneflowers. Then, take a Backyard Blossoms spray and adhere it on top of the doily using 3D foam tape at the bottom stems. Take yellow satin ribbon and make a small bow to adhere to the bottom stems in alignment with the center edge of the “Always and Forever” sentiment strip using a permanent adhesive such as Designer Dries Clear.  

For the front of the second flap, take half of a Butterfly doily and adhere the flat side to the right edge and adhere with 3D foam mounting tape. On top of the doily, take a Butterfly and adhere the right side of the wing using to the doily and the left side of the wing using 3D foam mounting tape to the yellow patterned paper. For the back of the third flap (yellow side) adhere a wheat field die cut towards the top left corner about 2.5” up from the bottom so that the wheat buds show when the card is closed. Take the orange coneflower strip and adhere it across from left to right over the bottom of the wheat stems. Take one of the coneflowers and adhere the bottom stem in alignment with the purple fleur strip with Designer Dries clear and adhere the coneflower head with 3D foam mounting tape over the wheat field die cut. For the front of the third flap (purple coneflower bouquet side) adhere both the coneflower field die cut and the coneflower die cut in alignment to the orange strip with the stems. Use 3D foam mounting tape for the head of the coneflower. Next, take a spray and adhere it to the front of the pocket flap using the same alignment. Then, Take the “A gift from the Heart” sentiment and adhere it towards the right edge of the card base on top of the pocket using 3D foam mounting tape about 1/2” from the right edge of the card. 

Embellishment
Use Faber-Castell Glass Bead Glitter Gel or glitter of your choice and use it on all the stamped images for a shiny effect, concentrating on flower heads.
