Flowers for Everyone

I combined the old with the new on this one. The stamps, dies, and Basic White are still current, whereas everything else is discontinued. It is nice to revisit the older colors and designer series paper. Thought? 

   Flower Cart

   Soft Sky A-2, 2" Sq.
   Chocolate Chip 5-3/8 x 4-1/8, 2-1/2 x 4-1/4
   Basic White 1-1/2 x 3, 5-1/4 x 4 (2)
   Afternoon Tea DSP 2-1/2 x 5-1/4
   Groovy Guava 1-3/4 x 2-1/2

   Chocolate Chip
   Wild Wasabi
   Groovy Guava

   Die Cutting

   Flower Cart Dies

First, I stamped the flowers for the cart. This is a 2-step stamping process. I stamped first with Wild Wasabi ink on the 1-1/2 x 3 Basic White piece. I then stamped the flower buds, using Groovy Guava.

I then die cut all of the pieces.
   Chocolate Chip 2-1/2 x 4-1/4 (arranged all of the die cuts on this piece and ran it through) = wheels, railing, flower box
   Groovy Guava was used for the Canopy
   Soft Sky was used for the 3 pieces on the awning
   Stamped Flowers cut with matching die

Next, I assembled the flower cart. I used liquid adhesive to put the pieces together. A fine tip glue pen will work great as well. 
   First, I added the flowers onto the flower bed. (Notice the leaves that hang over the edge. Glue behind them, but the rest has glue on the front to attach to the back of the cart.)
   I then added the railing on top of the flowers. I matched the ends of the railing with the cart.
   I attached the wheels by adding adhesive to the top of the wheels only. 
   I adhered the Soft Sky pieces onto the Groovy Guava canopy. 
   I then set it aside to get the card front ready.

I adhered the Afternoon Tea DSP panel onto the left side of a Basic White panel. 

Next, I stamped the sentiment on the top right of the panel, using Chocolate Chip ink.

I then adhered this panel onto a Chocolate Chip matte, and then onto the Soft Sky card front.

Next, I placed the canopy on the card to figure out where the cart and tires will land. You have some wiggle room with the amount of space to leave between the flowers and the canopy. I made a small pencil mark at the bottom of each wheel.

I then stamped the pebbles for a road, using Chocolate Chip ink.

Next, I adhered the canopy to the card front, right below the sentiment. 

I then attached the cart, using dimensionals.

Lastly, I added adhesive to the triangle piece that anchors the cart in the front, and adhered a Basic White panel to the inside of the card. 

I may have over-explained the assembling of the cart because it took me a while to figure it out, but it is not difficult.
