1 Create a background on a panel of watercolour cardstock by pressing Picked Raspberry and Spun Sugar ink onto a glass mat, spritzing with water, then lightly press the cardstock into it a few times. Allow to dry.
2 Die-cut the planks from watercolour cardstock and draw glue lines to create a woodgrain effect. Allow to dry until sticky, then add the gilding flakes, rubbing off the excess. Repeat the technique from Step 1 using Aged Mahogany ink on the planks.
3 Once dry, affix the pink panel to the card blank and add the planks using 3D foam tape, with twisted lengths of cotton behind each one.
4 Colour a piece of cardstock with Picked Raspberry ink and die-cut flowers. Cut a branch and colour using the Aged Mahogany ink, clear heat-embossing for a deeper colour.
5 Colour the leaves and the edges of the flowers with Old Paper ink and add to the card front with the flowers. Add Nuvo Drops to the flowers.
6 Stamp and clear heat-emboss a sentiment, trim and affix to the card front to finish.
