The base of the card is 5 1/2" x 8 1/2". I scored it in the middle at 4 1/4" and then half of that at 2 1/8". I cut the umbrella out at 6" twice (once in white and once in patterned paper). I cut off all the tabs on the patterned piece, colored the umbrella handle tan, then glued the top to the white base. It's hard to see but I added stitch lines with the tan marker to the umbrella also. I glued the blue patterned paper to a separate piece of white card stock (cut at 4 1/4" x 5 1/2"). Next, I added the popped-up umbrella (the tab from the handle goes under to the back of the separate white base). I added the Glossy Accents to the blue background and the umbrella. After it was dry, I single mounted the sentiment. I glued green patterned paper to the "inside" of the base card, added the mounted sentiment and then adhered the tulips. Finally I glued a piece of blue card stock to the back of the umbrella piece and then glued it to the easel base. Now I will confess, that before I added the blue card stock to the back, I started to glue it to the easel base but realized that I only have to glue half of it to fit on there. So that's why I added the blue card stock. Mistakes? There are NO mistakes...just lessons learned!) lol
