Instructions: Cut 120 lb. card stock at 5 1/2" x 11". Score at 5 1/2" to create a top fold 5 1/2" x 5 1/2" card base. Cut navy blue card stock at 5 1/4" x 5 1/4". Cut a 5" x 5" panel from the Flowering Dogwood paper Collection. You can refer to the reference picture.
Adhere the designer paper on the white card base using double sided tape. Position the Botanic Window Die in the center of the navy card stock layer and die cut. Adhere the navy card stock over the designer paper. This will allow the pretty designer paper to show through the negative space of the window die.
Stamp the dove from the Flowering Dogwood and Doves Stamp Set on X-Press It using Memento Tuxedo Black Ink. Color the shadow areas of the dove with Copic Alcohol Ink Markers. I used the following color combo - BG000, BG00 and BG10. The shadow area will be under the wing, neck and in back of place where the light source is blocked. Die cut with coordinating die. Die cut two extra doves with navy blue card stock and adhere to the back of the dove image for strength and dimension. Pop the dove on the image as shown using dimensional foam dots.
For the final touch, cut the sentiment from the Flowering Dogwood Designer Paper Collection and adhere using dimensional dots. Adhere the pearls to the Botanic Window area as shown for embellishment. I applied additional strength to the underside of the pearls by adding Designer Dries Clear Adhesive.
Quick Tip: This card can be sent through the mail by placing a piece of card stock over the top before putting in the envelope.
