Instructions: Select a light blue patterned paper from within the Flowering Dogwood Paper Collection. Trace the wooden cross onto paper using pencil and cut. Adhere paper to wooden cross with good adhesive and allow to dry. Once dried, use nail file/emery board to smooth paper edges for a finished look around edges. Using a grey ink, stamp one inking of each size of dogwood flowers, two of the flowering dogwood branches, several bunches of leaves, the sentiment as well as one dove image as shown. Color flowers, leaves and branches using several green colored inks and sponge daubers. Die cut all elements. Assemble flowers, some as doubles and leaving some as single blossoms. Trim sentiment and adhere to cross using pop dots. Adhere wreath die cut to cross as shown. Shape and adhere one flowering dogwood branch on top of cross, and one coming across center of cross under sentiment. Create flower clusters as shown, one on the top, in center and bottom of cross. Add in leaf accents where necessary. Add a touch of color to dove using sponge dauber and adhere dove among flower cluster on top of cross. Add Heart of Gold Prills to flower centers. Lastly adhere glitter and glitter glass to flowers.
