Instructions: Make a 5" X 7" white card base, by cutting cardstock 10" X 7", score at 5" and fold. Cut a 5" X 7" piece of designer paper from collection that is white with a light shadow green print. Sponge edges with cocoa ink. Glue to card front. Cut a 4 3/4" X 6 3/4" piece of designer paper that is medium green print. Sponge edges with cocoa ink. Glue trim down left side and bottom of this piece. Use the curler tip of the shaping kit to curl the upper right corner, fold down over and add a drop of glue to tip and glue in place. Glue this panel to card front, leaving the fold unglued enough to tuck in the branch later. Die cut the window from gold mirror card and glue in place on card front.
