Cut Celery Green cardstock 6¼"x10½". Fold in half -- this will be your card base. Set aside.
Stamp a piece of ivory cardstock 6¼"x3½" with musical border. Stamp using the Cranberry pigment ink pad, stamping the image three times. You may lose a little of the top and bottom images.
Border punch a piece of 1½"x6¼" piece of Tomato Red cardstock, and adhere under the ivory stamped cardstock with tape runner.
Cut a piece of Pesto Green cardstock, 5¼"x6¼", and border punch the top and bottom with patterns along the 6¼" edges. Step 5 Use tape runner to attach the musical border to the Pesto Green card.
Cut assorted red and green ribbon to an 8" length. Wrap around card and tape the ends to the back of the card.
Punch or die cut three flowers from ivory cardstock. Curl each one with your fingers, or roll each petal around a pencil. Glue on top of each other with white paper glue, then glue the combined flower to your card over the ribbons.
Glue a large red button to the center of the flower.
Glue three white buttons along one of the ribbons.
Adhere the finished piece to your Celery Green card base using a tape runner.
