Watch this video to learn different shaping techniques using the dogwood flowers.

Instructions: My finished card is 4 1/4" X 5 1/2". Make card base and cover with a piece of the paper collection and then pick one of the card fronts and glue that to the base as well. Next stamp, cut out, and shape the flowers and leaves. The flowers and the dove are cut from the watercolor paper and the leaves are all stamped and cut out on a piece of the paper collection. I used the Dove Blender Pen and London Fog Memento ink to add some color to the dove. Next I added some glitter to the dove and set it aside to dry. Now use the Dove Blender Pen and add just a touch of Rhubarb Stalk color to the edges of the flower petals just for a bit more definition. I took the prills and rubbed some across the Guacamole ColorBox ink just to give them a little darker color. Add these prills to the centers of the flowers and set aside to dry. Next glue down the body of the dove and leave the tail feathers sticking up a bit. Place your flowers and leaves all around the dove and glue them down. I cut out the little tag that says Faith from the paper collection using the Luggage and Tags Die, used dimensional tape to adhere it to the front, then I glued the half pearl on the edge of it. Your card is finished.
