Instructions: Cut a 16.6 cm x 10 cm card base from the blue cardstock. Cut a 10 cm x 16 cm panel from the cerise colored cardstock and distress its edges. Cut a 9.5 cm x 15.5 cm panel from pattern paper from the HCDP1 249 Romantique Garden Paper Collection pack. Distress its edges, adhere it to the cerise cardstock panel with double dots and wrap blue seam binding ribbon around both layers. Glue the ready panel to the card base. Stamp the image of the bird three times using HCPC3642 Romantique wings PreCut Set and black ink onto water color paper. Then stamp the bird and the flower using the same stamp set. Die cut them using the second inner oval from Spellbinders Majestic Elements die. Using the same die set, die cut the 4th oval with the lace corners and put it aside for later. Color the stamped images with Derwent Inktense pencils. Fussy cut the flowers and three of the birds, cutting also between the front wing and back wing line. Separate all the feathers on the tail and the front wing. Shape the birds and the flowers using the Paper Blossoms Tool Kit and mat. Curl the feathers of the bird with a very fine balling point. This will give the appearance of the wings fluttering very fast. Apply double dots behind the body of the bird and the flowers, so they will remain in shape. Apply double dots behind the die cut oval with image stamped on it and the oval with the lace corners. Aligning and stacking the two, attach them together. Place the bird and flowers on top of the base image. Add Stickles glitter glue to the edges of oval and lace corners. Apply Crystal Lacquer to the bird and the under wings. Put aside to dry. When everything has dried, place the lace edged oval on the card so you can see where to stamp your sentiment. Put aside, then stamp and heat emboss the sentiment using HCPC3354 Classic message PreCut Set and black embossing powder. Attach the lace edged oval on top of the ribbon line in the centre of the card. Tie and place a triple bow under the wing of the bird.
