Cut a card to measure 30x15cm. lay it landscape and score at 7.5cm and 15cm. Mark with a pencil at 22.5cm, both top and bottom. Mark the right edge at 7.5cm Score from each 22.5cm marks to the 7.5cm mark on the right hand edge. Cut away these two triangles. Score a cross shape from the 22.5 marks to the opposite ends of the 7.5 score line. Crease well and use a bone folder to make sharp lines that will easily fold into the diamond shape.

I used  lilac cardstock for the base of this card. The elements used are from the Blooming Lovely collection.

Trim a piece of the aqua paper 7x14.5cm to fit in the base and stick in place. Stick a line of With Love washi tape along 1.5cm up from the edge. Stick the diamond base triangle to the card base.  Cut a 7cm square from butterfly paper and cut into two triangles. Stick  in place, one  on each side on the triangles below the diamond.

Cut a 10cm square from the dotty lilac and white paper and stick in place on the diamond front of the card.Cut an 8.5 square from aqua paper and mount to the diamond front.  Add a line of washi tape accross the centre of the diamond. Stick a doily on top of this.

Back a lilac frame with butterfly paper and stick in place. Trim with small pearls and the butterfly sticker from the pack. I used foam squares to raise the sticker level with the frame.  Add the roses and bow as seen. Mount the bee happy sticker onto the smallest die cut from the scalloped circles die set and stick in place.

Scalloped circle die is FEDIE071. Papers are DCPAP054, Frame is DCWDN037, Bow is  DCRBN024, washi tape is DCWST005, Stickers are DCSTK031, Flowers are DCFLW012. Simply Creative pearls are 6mm SCDOT057, 3mm is SCDOT056
