- Concentrate the Tutti Fruiti Glimmer Mist over the ends of the card topper, especially the large flowers.
- When painting in the small flowers, leaves, and border with Smooch inks, use a light touch for small spaces. If some ink gets on the black lines, gently wipe it off with your finger or use your knife.
- Remove the posts and page protectors from the album, then replace the front portion of the posts back into the holes. Mist the entire outside of the album with Key Lime Pie Glimmer Mist (lightly mist the tops of the posts as well) and set aside to dry.
- Lightly mist the floral corners card topper with Tutti Fruiti Glimmer Mist, concentrating on the large flowers at the corners. Wipe excess mist from the embossed design. Let dry.
- Use the Sassy Pink Smooch ink to paint in the small flowers and lettuce Smooch to paint in the leaves and scalloped border. Use a light touch when applying the Smooch. Gently wipe off any excess from the black lines with your finger or knife. Let dry, then add more color if needed for coverage. Trim around the scalloped edges of the card topper and touch up the edges with a black ink pad if needed.
- Cut out the scalloped black label with white oval center and flower. Cut out the additional flower from the labels sheet. Mist over pieces very lightly with Tutti Fruiti Glimmer Mist and let dry. Paint in the flowers and leaves with Smooch and let dry. Foam tape the label centered on the card topper. Foam tape the extra flower to the label as shown. Place “Family” sticker on the right side of the oval.
- Cut a 6 1/4" square piece of burgundy suede, then add gold border stickers to left and right sides. Glue the square centered to the front of the album. Add another border sticker to the left edge near the posts as shown. Glue the card topper centered to the burgundy suede square. Embellish the flower centers with tiny dot stickers from the Dazzles™ sheet (“innies” from some of the borders).
