1 Die-cut a selection of blooms in the three smallest sizes from pink and purple patterned paper.

2 Layer up the flowers using 3D foam pads and top with adhesive pearls.

3 Affix the blooms to the hearts, placing more on the larger heart and fewer on the smaller hearts.

4 Place the paper flowers in the gaps and add die-cut leaves to finish.

Christine Smith’s masterclass on tri-fold cards is so effective, and she gives you a step-by-step guide to help you do it yourself at home.
