Instructions: Make a 6" X 6" white card base. Cut a 5 7/8" square mat from blue cardstock and glue to card base. Cut a blue piece of designer paper from pad 5 3/4" square. Cut a 7" piece of organza ribbon and glue to designer paper 1/2" down from top, tucking and gluing ends to the back. Now glue this entire piece to blue mat. Cut a strip of scalloped border from white cardstock, leaving a 1/4" edge. Glue this along bottom, snipping edges to fit. Glue a piece of bead trim on edge of scalloped border as pictured.

Stamp one dove, one frame, & two dogwood spray onto white cardstock using black ink. Color doves beak with Y23 & beak cap & feet with C3. Color body and wing and tail, edges only with B21, then blend out edges with colorless blender. Color all coral flowers using R00, & 000. Blue dogwood with B21 & blend with colorless blender. Color all notches using E44. Color branches using E47, 44, 43, & 41. Cut all pieces with matching dies. Slightly shape flowers with 8mm tip in shaping kit. Coat flowers and dove with sparkle pen.

Stamp crosses and sentiment on card front to fit inside frame using Rich Cocoa Ink. You may need a stamp positioner for this step. Coat crosses with sparkle pen also. Shape dove wings and tail then glue to bottom of frame just under the feet, behind the branch as pictured. Attach the frame and dogwood sprays as pictured using pop-dots. Make a double bow and glue to upper left corner. Glue a small piece of bead trim over knot. I used my heat gun to crinkle the ribbon, but this step is optional. Add Candi to each corner with a pop-dot to complete your card.
