1. Create a 5" x 7" card from Cream cardstock. Using green ink from the Rain Forest Cat's Eye Queue, stamp 'Bracken Fern' and 'Small Dot Heart' at random across card face. Highlight card edges with green ink and add crystal glitter to hearts and ferns. Set aside to dry.
2. Using black VersaFine ink, stamp 'Rose' on cream cardstock. Mask, and stamp 'Bracken Fern' in green ink. Cut out with a die from the Opulent Ovals cutting die set. Color the rose with colored pencils and blend with blending solution and paper stumps. Add crystal glitter glue to leaves and flower, then cover with Crystal Lacquer. Set aside to dry.
3. Cut a 4 1/4" x 5 1/2" piece of Bubble Gum Pink Velvet paper, using the Romantic Scissors on two sides. Smear pink ink from Tulip Fields Cat's Eye Queue on the paper. Stamp 'A Friend Loveth at all Times' (from Bible Verses I stamp set) at the bottom right, using Vintage Sepia VersaFine ink. Add 5 red mini-brads.
4. Layer oval, heart doily and velvet rectangle on the card face. Add pink and green jute and tie in a bow.
