Instructions: Card size is 6 x 6". Using the Cherry Blossom stamps, stamp the small and medium blossoms using the Rouge ink. As this is pigment ink, allow to dry and then cut with coordinating dies. Stamp the 2 leaf sprays 3 times using Bamboo leaves ink. Color with same ink and die cut with coordinating die. Lightly spray the blossoms and leaves and shape in the matching 3D shaping mold. Highlight the edges of the leaves using the Bamboo Leaves ink.

Using white cardstock cut one lacy diamond die. Cut white cardstock 12" x 6" and fold in half. Cut one white mat 4 1/2" x 4 1/2".

Using the Cherry Blossom Paper Collection. Cut check cardstock into 4 mats 5 3/4" x 5 3/4". To get the front birdhouse strip you will need to use 2 of the same card stock. Cut the birdhouse trim 5 3/4" x 2 1/2". Using the circle die, cut the center birdhouse from one of the strips.

Using the die cut sheet from your paper collection, cut one birdhouse.

Card Assembly: Adhere your check mats to all four sides of the card. Adhere the white insert mat to the right-hand side. Using glue, adhere birdhouse in the top left corner of the insert mat.

Cut the Lacy Diamond Die in half. Using glue along the long edge adhere the die cut mat evenly to the top and bottom of the card front. Using 3D adhesive adhere the center strip. Using double 3D adhesive adhere the circle birdhouse.

Using 3D adhesive, adhere the other birdhouse strip to the back of the card making sure it lines up with the front strip. Adhere the bow to the top center of the card front. Adhere 1 leaf and 1 medium flower to the center of the bow. Adhere 1 medium and 2 small blossoms to the bottom of the birdhouse and 1 leaf spray to each side. Decorate with stickles or glitter of choice as desired.
