Perched Cardinals

Other Products: White, Navy Blue Cardstock; Watercolor Paper; Spectrum Aqua markers - Crimson, Orange and Moss; paint brush; seam binding ribbon; 3d foam squares; Jet Black Staz-on ink pad; Classic Rectangles Small die (Spellbinders)

Instructions: This finished card measures 4 1/4" x 5 1/2". I created the base of the card by cutting a full sheet of navy blue cardstock to 4 1/4" x 11". I scored that at 5 1/2" and folded it in half. I cut a slightly smaller piece of white cardstock. Plus I cut the blue flourish panel from the paper collection. I stamped the birds and the leaves onto watercolor paper using black Staz-on ink pad. Using a paint brush, water and watercolor markers, I colored the birds and leaves. I then used the matching dies to cut them out. I glued the white rectangle of cardstock down and then adhered 2 of the leaf branches. Using 3d foam squares, I adhered the third leaf branch and the birds into place as shown. I added the sentiment ticket using 3d foam squares, too! I tied the seam binding into a bow on the bottom of the card to complete the project!
