Instructions: Inspiration and step by step pictures for this project comes from: Hot Off The Press 3D Frame Card Template and here

To make the basic frame card, cut one piece of white cardstock to measure 6″ x 8″ in size and a second piece, 12″ x 6″, folded in half down the center to create a 6″ square card blank. Take the 6″ x 8″ piece of card and place in front of you, with the longest side facing you, score the frame at 0.5″, 1″, 7″ and 7.5″ and fold along the score lines. To create the aperture in the center, measure 1″, 1.5″, 4.5″ and 5″ from the second score line on the left hand side and make a faint pencil mark. Turn the card around 90˚ and then measure again t 1″, 1.5″, 4.5″ and 5″ and mark with a pencil. Join up all the pencil marks to form a square and core along each of the solid lines. Cut diagonally from corner to corner of the scored square to create four triangular flaps in the center. Create a mountain fold, followed by a valley fold along each of the score lines to create your inset to your frame. Apply adhesive tape to each of the end tabs of the scored card. Mount the frame onto the front of your 6″ x 6″ card blank. Add adhesive to each of the four flaps on your frame and attach them to the blank card to form the box. Cut a piece of white card, approximately 4 1/4” square and place in the center of your frame card and you now have your basic frame card to decorate. Cut one classic border basic die and glue across the top of the frame card.

Stamp the petunias with the classic petunia bouquet cling stamp set. Cut the petunias out with the petunia bouquet out with the classic petunia bouquet die. Color the petunia bouquet with Stampin Up melon mambo and garden green ink with the dove blending pen. Apply designer dries clear adhesive and apply shell white microfine transparent glue to petunias. Punch a scallop oval from white cardstock and stamp with Stampin Up early espresso ink “Let’s Celebrate” from the small classic petunia cling stamp set. Attach the petunia bouquet with glue dots and glue the scallop oval to the bottom of the card. Attach pearls around the frame of the card.

A bonus tutorial for making this little box that I made with card stock and covered with Stampin Up Wildflower Fields Designer Series paper. Take one piece of card stock and cut to 4 inches by 10 1/4 inches. On the long side score the card stock as 1 1/4 inches, 4 1/2 inches, 5 3/4 inches and 9 inches. On the short side score at 1 1/4 inches and 2 3/4 inches. See pictures  for proper cutting and putting the box together. What do you think?
