Instructions: Create a card base, 10" x 5" folded in half to create a 5" x 5" base, using one of the Regal Boards die cute the outside edges.

From the designer paper cut a 5" x 5" panel, and die cut the side edges with one of the Regal boarders die and layer on card base. Die cut a center panel also from the designer paper with the largest of the Spellbinders die. Wrap this panel with a piece of the seam binding and adhere it to the top of the card. Create a seam binding bow and attach to the bottom left hand side of the card.

Stamp 2 sets of flower petals in the Spun Cotton and shade the outer edges with the Rusty Hinge ink. Create the flowers and place them over the bow. Stamp 3 sets of leaves with Mello Moss and shade the outer edges with the Rusty Hinge and arrange them around the flowers. Stamp and color the bird from the stamp set mentioned above and place it in the center of the card. I used the markers to color in the bird.

On the bottom of the card, I used one of the pre-printed sentiments from the collection.
