Crop photo and save. Print two 4" x 6" copies of the edited photo. Use scissors to cut out the daffodil from one photo. Set aside.

Fold and score kraft cardstock to create a card with a 4" x 6" front and 6" x 6" back.

Create a slit in the center of the fold with a craft knife and insert ribbon.

Use Glue Lines to attach ribbon behind a sheet of 6" x 6" Kraft & Gold cardstock for the inside of card.

Wrap ribbon around the front of card, attach with Glue Lines and adhere the uncut 4" x 6" photo on top.

Adhere doily and wood veneer to inside of card with Ultra-Thin Glue Dots.

Attach cut flower to photo with Pop Up Glue Dots to create a three-dimensional flower. Cut a flower stem from a sheet of Kraft & Gold cardstock and use Pop Up Dots to attach it to flower and photo.

Tip: Use cardboard pieces in between cut photo and Pop Up Glue Dots to ensure a smooth image on the front of the card.
