Adhere the flowers and leaves to the layout. Using liquid adhesive I added beads to the middles of the flowers. I added a bow of the iridescent ribbon to the left of the matted photo, and the Dogwood branch up from the bow. I added the dove to the bottom left hand corner of the layout. I added Diamond Stickles to the dove. I added green Stickles to the middle of all of the flowers on the decorative frame. I added pearls around the flower clusters.

Watch this video https://youtu.be/gI8RqHAt3vE to learn different shaping techniques using the dogwood flowers.

Instructions: My card size is 6" X 6". Make card base and then cover with one of the card fronts included in the paper pack. These card fronts literally make such quick work of your cards and I'm sure you will be in love with them as I am. I added some glitter to some of the swirls on the paper and laid the card aside.

Next I stamped, embossed, cut out and colored the flower petals, centers and leaves. The leaves are cut out of one of the papers in the paper pack so that everything matches. The prills were just a shade lighter than I actually wanted so I poured some out onto the Bamboo Leaves ink pad and rolled them around with my finger to add a little more color. I dampened the back of the flower petals and shaped them using the Deluxe Flower Shaping Kit. I added a drop of glue in the center and added the prills then set them aside to dry. Next I shaped the leaves a bit then decided where I wanted everything to be and glued down the flowers and leaves. Next I cut out a sentiment from the paper pack and edged it with Bamboo Leaves Ink then popped up using the dimensional tape.

Instructions

Other Products: 120 lb. white card stock, navy blue card stock, X-Press It Blending Card Stock, pearls, paper trimmer, double sided tape, scissors, Copic Alcohol Ink Markers: BG000, BG00, BG10

Instructions: Cut 120 lb. card stock at 5 1/2" x 11". Score at 5 1/2" to create a top fold 5 1/2" x 5 1/2" card base. Cut navy blue card stock at 5 1/4" x 5 1/4". Cut a 5" x 5" panel from the Flowering Dogwood paper Collection. You can refer to the reference picture.

Adhere the designer paper on the white card base using double sided tape. Position the Botanic Window Die in the center of the navy card stock layer and die cut. Adhere the navy card stock over the designer paper. This will allow the pretty designer paper to show through the negative space of the window die.

Stamp the dove from the Flowering Dogwood and Doves Stamp Set on X-Press It using Memento Tuxedo Black Ink. Color the shadow areas of the dove with Copic Alcohol Ink Markers. I used the following color combo - BG000, BG00 and BG10. The shadow area will be under the wing, neck and in back of place where the light source is blocked. Die cut with coordinating die. Die cut two extra doves with navy blue card stock and adhere to the back of the dove image for strength and dimension. Pop the dove on the image as shown using dimensional foam dots.

For the final touch, cut the sentiment from the Flowering Dogwood Designer Paper Collection and adhere using dimensional dots. Adhere the  pearls to the Botanic Window area as shown for embellishment. I applied additional strength to the underside of the pearls by adding Designer Dries Clear Adhesive.

Quick Tip: This card can be sent through the mail by placing a piece of card stock over the top before putting in the envelope.

Loved Debbie Seyer's card "Pink Easter Dogwood Branch", the dogwoods looked so real, hope to make one half as pretty. Also the "Green Dogwood Easter Blessing" card by Glenda Brooks. Such great ideas. Love the new dogwood collection & hope to see more of it at the SSAT in Columbia SC this weekend.

As you know I send a lot of cards to the USO. Extra postage is due if over a 1/4 of an inch thick and the soldiers get free mail so I do not always make cards with as much dimension as I would like. I have found it doesn't really make a difference in the beauty of the projects. Your products are a work of art by themselves.
