Instructions: Create a 5 3/4" x 4 3/4" card by trimming graphite cardstock to 11 1/2" x 4 3/4". Score at 5 3/4" to make a top-fold card. Trim light ocean blue cardstock to 5 5/8" x 4 3/8" and attach to the card front. With watermark ink, stamp the Birds and Blooms Collage onto white cardstock. Heat emboss the image with blue embossing powder. Trim to 5 1/2" x 4 1/2". Rub the edges of the white cardstock with ice blue chalk ink and attach the image to the front of the card. Stamp the three fluffy birds from the Birds and Blooms PreCut Set onto white cardstock with gray ink. Stamp the birds twice, and then use the Birds and Blooms die to trim out two left-facing birds. Color the birds with markers. Stamp the leaves from the Leafy Branch PreCut set onto white cardstock with gray ink. Color the leaves with markers and trim out with the Leafy Branch leaf dies. Stamp the small branch from the Leafy Branch Pre-Cut set with brown ink onto white cardstock, trim the branch with the Leafy Branch die. Color the branch with creamy brown chalk ink. With gray ink, stamp the flower petals from the Birds and Blooms PreCut set onto white cardstock. Color with markers and trim out with the Leafy Branch flower die. Shape the flowers. Snip a small section of the brown branch and glue it to the card front, over the embossed image. Cut the leaves apart as desired and layer them onto the embossed image. Use foam tape to attach the two birds. Add the flowers as shown. Glue pearls to each flower center. Stamp the Birds and Bloom Collage image again, onto white paper with watermark ink. Heat emboss with pale blue embossing powder. Color the large butterfly with markers. Use sharp scissors to trim the large butterfly image from the collage image. Attach the butterfly to the card front, over the top of the embossed image, making sure to bend the wings upward. Color the small butterfly on the card front with markers. Trim light ocean blue cardstock to 5 5/8" x 4 3/8" and attach to the inside of the card. Trim blue print paper from the Birds and Blooms Paper Collection to 5 1/2" x 4 1/2" and attach to the inside of the card.
