1. Create an 11cm x 20cm white blank and layer with teal. Cut a 15cm x 18.5cm piece of white card, stamp a mandala onto it with embossable ink, then add white embossing powder and heat-set.

2. Sprinkle Lemoncello Infusions onto the centre and Are You Cerise around the outside. Spray with water, then blot the excess. Add more if necessary. Add A Bit Jaded Infusions to the outside, spray with water and blot the excess. Leave to dry.

3. Trim the card at 10cm down and cut across. Repeat the embossing process with the smaller leaves and flower, layer together, then attach by the mandala with 3D foam pads. Adhere the panel onto the blank. Die cut a sentiment in black and an outline layer from white card and adhere together. Add to the greeting to finish.
