Good morning friends and welcome to my last post of this crazy year! I'm here to share another card with you featuring the Garden Zinnia flower from the Summer's Garden Collection! My mother grew these flowers along the edge of our back porch when I was a child so they hold a place dear to my heart. I can almost smell them when I remember her tiny garden. Heartfelt Creations has truly captured these lovely flowers and I'm pleased to share another card with you!

Instructions: My card size is 5" x 7". Make card base and pick a piece of the paper collection and cover the card front leaving just a small margin of white around the edges. Diecut the Regal Frame from white cardstock and adhere to the card front.
Stamp the flower petals in Cactus Flower and Buttercup then color with Majestic Violet, Cactus Flower and Buttercup. Make sure to color the backs of the flower petals and the leaves. Lay on the molds, spritz with water and run through the die cut machine. Lay out onto the desk mat to dry. I stamped the leaves with Fern Green then colored with Leaf Green. Lay onto the mold, spritz with water and run through the die cut machine. Lay out onto the desk mat to dry.
Make the flowers and add prills to the centers and allow to dry. You can use a bit of hot glue and drop prills onto that to add a more dimensional flower center. I did this with some of the flowers and some I just did the traditional way using Dries Clear Glue.
Decide on the placement of your flowers and leaves and glue down using hot glue. The card is finished.
