6.  Create a decorative look with the flower and foliage die cuts in the bottom left hand corner, adhere each die cut with glue.

TIP Before you glue your flower and leaves die cuts down, experiment with your flower composition and once you’re happy with the design, take a picture.  Adhere the die cuts to your card by following the picture. This will help you be 100% happy with your design.
