9. Die cut your First Edition Flower dies onto different sheets of Floral Fusion paper. Layer and adhere to the front of your card with 3D foam pads to add dimension. Cut a butterfly out from a patterned sheet in the pad and adhere to the bottom right of your card design. Add a Simply Creative gem to the centre of each flower.
