Once done, tape the foil onto a 10.5cm x 15cm panel of white card and use the Foil Quill Freestyle Pen and the standard tip to trace around the images. Move the foil and repeat until you build up a background. Layer onto a pink blank. Print out a sentiment onto white card and foil it using the toner reactive foil. Trim, matt onto gold mirri card, then glue to the card front.

Turn a panel of white cardstock, 10.5cm x 15cm, into a landscape position. Cover the bottom three-quarters with strips of double-sided tape, ensuring to space them out evenly. Remove the backing and place the gold foil on top. Rub it gently until the foil has transferred and there’s no sticky residue left on the surface. Mount onto a yellow blank. Print out the digi stamps, colour them in and trim. Add a few details to the centre of some of the flowers using the Zig 2 Way Glue Pen. Leave to dry until tacky, then press gold foil on top. Attach the flowers onto the card front and a sentiment banner in the bottom-right corner.
