Tri fold Snowdrop Card 
by Sue Smyth 

This easy Tri-fold card is only made more beautiful by the 3 sleeping
stems die. 

And the soft gentle lavenders and purples of the Heartsease collection 
match with the die perfectly.

I have included a step by step below to create the card 

Add a soft generous bow and some bling to add
to the texture and interest of the card

This card opens out nicely to add more decoration
or greeting.
You could also adhere the front panel to 
form a little pocket.

Trim a panel of cream or white cardstock to 30 x 21 cm and fold every 7 cm,
Draw a line across 2 of the panels on a diagonal and cut 
along the line.

Fold up to make a cascading tri fold card.

Use the card as a guide to cut 3 panels of patterned paper
to decorate the card.

Apply Dimensional magic around the edge of a scalloped 

Dip into white glitter, remember to level the Dimensional magic
firsts so that you don't get any lumps 

Die cut a plain oval from patterned paper, making sure
to position the bee in the lower left side. 

Flip over on a mouse pad and apply pressure with a stylus.
Work in a circular motion to cup the oval.

Adhere to glittered scallop oval with 3 D foam tape. Then 
apply a glossy coat of Dimensional magic, smearing
out with your finger for a flat surface.

Die cut lace strip in cream and adhere to inside card.

Position oval element onto the front of the card 
and adhere down at the bottom only.

I have cut 2 sets of 3 sleeping stems in white cardstock.
Then either emboss them with a rubber mat or flip them over
on a mouse pad and apply pressure to cup the blossom.

Colour the stems only with a green pen.

Apply a few 2mm celedon rhinestones to some of the blossoms.

Assemble in a cluster at the bottom of the oval element.

Add a bow, lace, pearls, extra die cut bee
 and paper carnation for extra prettiness
