Plus if you want to make the fabulous cute flower I did you will need the Cherry Lynn Designs Build a Flower #1

Step 2: Build your flower from the die cuts using the liquid glue you can find in the Teresa Collins adhesive kit at Xyron. Build the layers by stacking them and adding a pearl center and your done with the flower!!! Super Easy!!

Step 3: Take one of the papers from the Anna Griffin Kit and cut out the center. Then ink the inside edges with Versa Mark and emboss the edges with Antique Gold Embossing Powder.

Step 4: Cut out a lattice design from your Silhouette Cameo and glue it to the back of the piece of paper you cut the center out of. I used my Xyron Mega Runner to do this.

Step 5:Run the piece that you have sandwiched together through the Xyron Creation Station 9" Sticker Maker and make it into a huge sticker and all you have to do is peel and stick it to you cardstock base!! AMAZING!!! I love easy application!!

Step 6: Use the cutouts from your lattice piece and add pop dots to the back and build a design cluster on the card in the top right hand corner. Also take elements from the papers given to you in the Anna Griffin Kit and fussy cut them out and run them through your Xyron 3" Sticker Maker and make them ready to peel and stick to the card.

Step 7:  Use the Pop Dots that come in the Xyron Teresa Collins adhesive Kit and add 3D to your card by pop dotting elements on the card.

Step 8: Finally use a tag from the Anna Griffin Kit stamp a sentiment on it and back it with a bow and and a flat back pearl and there you have it!!!

There you have it!! A beautiful card created with a stunning collection from Anna Griffin, Fabulous adhesive from Xyron and awesome dies from Cherry Lynn designs.
