Step one: Cut a 9x7¾ inch piece of paper. We used papers from Scrap Pad to Go - k-Ology Peabody. Fold it in half to finish at 7¾ x4½ inches. Trim a ¼ inch from the bottom front edge to expose the inside pattern.
Step two: Choose a contrasting paper and cut it 6½x3¼ inches. Attach it to the front, center of the card using Tacky Tape.
Step three: Mix and match the multi mix 6 piece felt flowers and the felt hearts to make three blooming hearts. Use a needle and Nymo D rosy mauve thread to tack them together in the center and sew the beads on. Use any combination of 6mm olivine lentils and 11/0 frosted silver-lined lemon lime, 11/0 silver-lined medium orange, 8/0 silver-lined lavender opal, 8/0 inside-color pink/pink and 8/0 higher-metallic royal purple Toho seed beads to make put the "bloom" in your hearts.
