1. Paint each letter with 2 coats of either fresh foliage or rose paint. Paint the fresh foliage letters with 2 coats of extreme glitter peridot and the rose letters with extreme glitter hologram. Allow for dry time in between coats.
2. Trace the letters onto the back of the scrapbook paper. Cutout the letters. Apply Mod Podge to the back of the paper letters. Center on the painted letters, top coat with Mod Podge. Use your fingers to press out any air bubbles. Smooth your brush strokes.
3. Hot glue ribbon around the letters. Hot glue the letters on top of each other in a layered design.
4. Paint the large pink petals with extreme glitter gold. Allow to dry. Using hot glue, layer the petals, flower trim and rhinestones around the letters. Glue rhinestones to the letters in a random pattern.
