Begin By Making your card blank by trimming a piece of Baked Brown Sugar cardstock  to 21cms x 14.8cms (i.e. A6)
Next you will need your Big Shot Die Cutting Machine and Circle Framelits. You need to chose the framelit that is large enough the extend just beyond the top and bottom of the card blank, I found the scallop circle in the pack worked best. Die cut a piece of Typeset DSP  with this. Sponge the edges with Crisp Cantaloupe ink.

Next you want to die cut two circles from Very Vanilla cardstock, choosing the next two smallest dies down from the Scallop Circle. Stamp the edges of the larger circle using the the smaller Splodge stamp in Gorgeous Grunge stamp set using Baked Brown Sugar ink and sponge the edges with Crisp Cantaloupe ink.

Lastly, die cut the next size down circle in Crisp Cantaloupe Cardstock and Dry Emboss this using the Lovely Lace TIEF' 

Now for the flower. Stamp one flower from Petal Potpouri Stamp set in Crisp Cantaloupe ink onto Very Vanilla Cardstock, and another from Pistachio Pudding ink.

Punch these out using the Flower Medallion Punch
Use your bone folder to gently curl the petals/leaves under, you may need to do this a couple of times.

Glue the Typeset Scallop Circle to the card blank using tiny amounts of Tombow Multi-Purpose Liquid Glue. WARNING - Do not attempt to do this with PVA glue as the cardstock/DSP with wrinkle and warp.

Now layer upthe circles using Tombow Glue, again in tiny amounts.
Stamp your sentiment onto a 1cm wide piece of Very Vanilla cardstock, and create banner ends using the Banner Punch. This will require you to insert the stamped strip of cardstock in through the TOP of the punch and guide it between the cutting blades before you punch. This allows you to make your sentiment as long as you like.
Mat (Layer) this onto a piece of Crisp Cantaloupe cardstock 1.5cm wide and create banner ends in the same way. Adhere this to the back of the  flower with a little Tombow, ensuring the sentiment can still be seen. The beauty of Tombow is that you get about 3-4 seconds to re-position before the glue sets.
Add 3 Stampin Dimensionals to the reverse of the flower and adhere to the top layer of the circles. You may need to add a Dimensional to the opposite end oof you label to stop it waving in the wind.
Finish with a Vintage Button tied with large loops of Linen Thread, and a few Basic Pearls

Happy Stamping
