INSTRUCTIONS:
1.  Cut:
~Melon Mambo card base at 5-1/2″ x 8-1/2″.  Score and fold at 4-1/4″.
~Tempting Turquoise card front at 4″ x 5-1/4″.
~3 Melon Mambo Detailed flowers using BOTH the Detailed Flower Thinlit (with all the petals) AND put the coordinating Framelit around it.  Cut both the Thinlit and the Framelit together to get the needed flower piece.  You will need 3 of these flowers.
~Now take just the Flower Framelit you used and cut three from Powder Pink card stock.
2.  Stamp your large sentiment on your Tempting Turquoise card front in Island Indigo ink.  Stamp so it is over to the right edge.
3.  Now to put together your flowers.  You have some options:
~Put a dab of Tombow Glue on your Silicone Craft sheet and use a Stamping Sponge wedge to pounce the glue onto the back of the Melon Mambo flower piece.  Attach to the Powder Pink flower piece lining up the outside edges.  Repeat with the other flower pieces.
~Apply either Fine Tip Glue or Tombow Glue directly in small dots or thin lines to the back of the Melon Mambo flower piece.  Attach to the Powder Pink flower piece lining up the outside edges.
~Use the NEW Multipurpose Adhesive Sheets on the back of the Melon Mambo card stock BEFORE you cut out the flower pieces.  Peel off the backing, then attach to the Powder Pink flower piece.  I have not tried this.  I thought of it during class after all the flowers had been cut out.
4.  Lay your flowers on the Tempting Turquoise card front where you want them.  Attach with Tombow Glue.  Cut off the parts that hang over the edge.  Attach your card front to your card base.
5.  Now embellish with some Pearls.  Make sure and put on an uneven number.
6.  Optional:  Stamp some flowers from the Oh So Eclectic stamp set on your enevelope using Powder Pink for the solid part of the flower and Melon Mambo ink for the petal part of the flower.
You are finished!
