Shaped Base:

A2 size card base cut from black cardstock, use the scallop oval die to create the card base shape. See the video on how to do the selective cutting to create the base and to fold the base to create the easel section 

Petals: 

2~ x-large stars cut from red cardstock: our star measures 4" 

2~ large stars cut from red cardstock: our star measures 3 1/2"

1~ small star cut from red cardstock: our star measures 1 1/4"

2~ x-large stars cut from green cardstock: our star measures 4"

To create a more petal shape to the stars, we rounded the tips. 

We used the Holly and Ivy embossing folder to create texture on all the red stars. 

We used the Crackle embossing folder on the green star to give texture.

To make the texture of the petals pop more, we used the vintage photo to ink the edges of the stars. 

Sentiment section:

1~ scallop oval cut out of white cardstock to fit the base to write your message 

Easel prop section : 

1~ scallop oval die cut from white cardstock: we used the smallest one in the set to stamp the sentiment
