Tiered Florals
1. Trim white card to 13cm square and layer your stamps over the entire piece using the step-by-step guide provided. Apply Worn Lipstick distress ink onto an acrylic block and spritz with water.

2. Flick the colour onto the stamped panel to create faint dots over the background. Dry off with a heat tool. Cut diagonally and add a strip of gold glitter card along the bottom edge.

3. Take a 13cm square white blank and matt green spotty paper to the bottom-left corner. Apply the stamped panel to the card front using double-sided tape.

4. Die cut a banner from white and stamp ‘Congratulations’ using red ink. Secure to the card with 3D foam pads. Stamp a flower and leaf, layering up each motif. Die cut with the coordinating dies, then adhere to the card.
