The Old and the New, an Easter card

I called this card the Old and the New, because I used a retired die, and then I used a new die to make this card.
The cross is made using the retired Lattice die, and the flowers with the new Bouquet die.
This card was inspired by one similar to this on Pinterest.

The base card is Daffodil Delight, layered with Whisper White cardstock embossed with the Decorative Dots folder.

The lattice was die cut with Daffodil Delight cardstock using the retired Lattice die, and the pieces cut into the shape of a cross. After attaching this to the Whisper White layers, I die cut the flowers using the Flower Frenzy die.

With Whisper White cardstock, I die cut 2 of the larger of the 5 petal flowers, 2 of the small 5 petal flowers, and with Daffodil Delight die cut 2 of the flower stamens.  Wild Wasabi cardstock was used to die cut one of the stem and leaves (I cut this in half).

The petals of each of the small flowers were curled up, and then glued to the larger one, alternating the petals.  The 2 stamens were glued together with a glue dot and then with another glue dot adhered it to the center of the flower.
With a paper piercer, a hole was made in the center of the flower through all layers  and a yellow small brad was inserted.

Here's a close up of the flower.


This was done for both flowers.  Some dazzling details was added to the tips of the stamens.

The leaves were adhered first, and then the flowers. They were adhered using tombo glue.

The sentiment is from Teeny Tiny wishes, was punched using the Word Window punch, and layered with a Daffodil Delight small oval  punchie.  I attached the sentiment with dimensionals.

Because the flowers are 3D the card would not fit in a standard envelope, so I made a box for the card.
To make the box, take a 7 3/4 by 12" piece of carstock, and score at 1, 5 1/2, 6 1/2, and 11 on the long side.  Score 1" on the other 2 sides.

After folding the score lines, cut the two middle score lines on either side up to the score line.  At the ends, cut up the score line on each of the right sides.

Form the box, and decorate the top.
