How to make a Dovecraft Floral Muse easel card (Trimcraft)

Floral Muse.
Another beautiful new Dovecraft collection by Trimcraft! I love these collections and they just seem to get better and better...each new release seems to be my new favourite :)
You  can see all the steps in making this easel card below.

You will need ;
Dovecraft 6x6 Polka Dot Embossed card
Dovecraft Floral Muse 6x6 paper pad
Dovecraft Floral Muse Heart Accordion Stickers
Dovecraft Floral Muse Plastic Buttons
Dovecraft Floral Muse 3D Butterflies
Dovecraft Floral Muse Adhesive Pearls
Dovecraft Floral Muse Wooden Frames
Dovecraft Floral Muse A5 Sentiment Stickers

Trimcraft First Edition Foliage dies
Trimcraft First Edition Buckles, Frames and Borders dies
Dovecraft Crafters Glue
Dovecraft Double sided tape
Dovecraft double sided foam tape
Dovecraft Glitter Glue - Crystal

 1. Score and fold the front of the card in half.

 2.Cut 2 pieces of patterned paper - the back one at 7cm x 14.5cm and the floral one at 6cm x 13.5cm) for the top part of the easel card. Cut a piece of white card measuring 5.5cm x 14.5cm and a piece of patterned paper exactly the same size. Cut a piece of pink patterned paper measuring 5cm x 13.5cm to layer on top.

 3. Layer the two papers onto the top folded part of the card with double sided tape.
Attach the taupe coloured patterned paper directly on top of the white card and then the smaller piece of patterned paper on top with double sided tape. 
Attach this part to the base of the card by using double sided tape on the edge which is farthest away from  the centre and use foam tape along the edge which is closest to the centre. This creates the stopper for the easel.

 4. Attach 2 Heart Accordion stickers to the top of the card and add plastic buttons in the centres. Add a 3D butterfly.

 5. Add some Adhesive Pearls to the hearts and butterflies.

 6. Die cut two leaves from white card and glue beside the hearts. Die cut a white border and attach across the centre of the easel stopper.

7. Add  the glitter sticker inside the wooden frame and overlap the butterflies' wings on the wood.

 8. Add glue to the back of the frame and 3D foam tape to the back of the sticker.

 9. Attach on top of the border die cut.

10. Add a fine line of Glitter Glue around the edges of the patterned paper.
