The sentiment from 'Lovely You' Stamp Set combined with the Floral Squares Dies creates the focal image for the card.  The Stitched Greenery Die adds a bit of texture and is the same size as the card base.

Assembly & Trix:

There's very few Trix to this card, the Just Jade leaves are fussy cut and glued onto the Basic Black Square Die.  Calypso Coral CS is added for the flowers for one square die, and the other uses Pale Papaya CS. 

*  Adhere the 4 1/4 x 5 1/2 Thick Basic White Stitched Greenery Die layer to a 4 1/4 x 5 1/2 Thick Basic White card base with Mulitpurpose Liquid Glue, (glue). 

*  Fussy cut the coloured CS and glue to the Black frame.  ***Trix, apply glue to the Black Square Dies and then add the coloured CS.  I find this helpful when my hands get shaky :)

*  Stamp the sentiment with Memento Black Ink, fussy cut and adhere using Stampin' Dimensionals.

*  Embellish with the Classic Matte Dots.
