'Happiness' Card by Sue

Hi Everyone
Our DT Gal Sue has created a beautiful card to share today. I hope it gets you feeling crafty too!
1. Trim score and fold white card to make a 5.5 inches square card base.
2. Trim honey card to 5.25inches square. Adhere to card base with double sided tape.
3. Trim 1 piece of white card to 5-1/8” square and a second piece to 5” x 1.5”.
4. Emboss the top section of the 5-1/8” square and the smaller piece of white card using a Cuttlebug Swiss dots e.f.
5. Using a Copic Marker to match the colour of the honey card (Y11,15), colour a length of seam binding.  Wrap the binding around the small strip of embossed white card and finish with a bow on the left hand side.  Adhere this to a piece of honey card. 
6. Using the above layer as a guide position the small Spellbinder Window Three die over the larger square of embossed white card in the top right hand corner.  Secure the die if need be and cut the window shape.
7. Die cut Fresh Foliage from white card and spritz with Glimmer Mist.
8. Die cut three sets of double Petal Party flowers from honey card. Shape and build the flowers using Art Glitter – dries clear adhesive. Add a pearl to the centre of each. Spritz with Glimmer Mist.
9. Position the Fresh Foliage to the left of the die cut window and adhere. I use just a touch of the dries clear adhesive to some of the leaves to secure. Leave some of the bottom leaves free, to sit over the sentiment layer. 
10. Adhere the sentiment panel to the bottom of the card front.
11. Stamp the sentiment( Flourishes – Garden Gate) to white card. Cut and emboss using a Classic Small Oval die from Spellbinders. Pop this up on the right of the sentiment panel using adhesive foam squares.
12. Add the three sets of flowers over the foliage. Pop some tiny pearls over the offcut centres of the flowers and add these to the card front.
13. To finish the card use adhesive foam squares to pop up the completed window panel over the card base.
