Need a quick card?  Transfer, diecut and 3D-emboss a Marvelous Magnolia and add a shimmery Crystal Frame background.  A diecut greeting and Autumn Fairy Crystals top it off.  Hi, Jean here with a garden greeting to start the weekend.

Cut a Magnolia Rub-on Transfer and its paper liner - with a generous border.  Carefully remove the paper liner and tap the transfer onto heavy smooth white cardstock.  Place it between two sheets of printer paper to protect the design. Run it through the diecut machine (without the die!) with the plates used for cutting.  Carefully remove the top plastic liner.  Memory Box Rub-on Transfer sets include a wooden craft stick to burnish the transfer - but the rolling pressure of a diecut machine does a great job too!

Diecut the design with the matching die from the 3D embossing folder set.  Cut a second piece from heavy white cardstock and layer it for dimension.

Place the diecut in the Marvelous Magnolia 3D Embossing Folder and run it through the machine using the plates required for 3D embossing.

I used an ink-blended piece of Open Studio Watercolor Paper from my stash and spritzed it with more water and daubed it with a tissue to blot some of the inks for a lighter background.  Lightly spritzed it with Imagine's Gold Sheer Shimmer Sprtiz too.  Let it dry, then cut it with the large Crystal Frames die.  Attach the frame and its offcut to a white side-folded 5-½" square card.  The peaked Crystal Frame complements and resembles the top of the blossom without being too match-y.

Stamp the greeting - from the Friends and Family Clear Stamp Set - on a pale lavender 6x6 from the Twilight Purple Collection with Purple Delight VersaFine Clair.  Dry the ink, then trim the greeting with the 1-½" Square Basics die.

Assemble the card  - use foam tape for the greeting.  Add purple Autumn Fairy Crystals.  Cut a 5-½" square of cardstock to protect the card front for mailing.  Square cards require additional postage and handling.

Thanks for visiting - have a great weekend!
