Instructions: Card is 6 x 6" size. Start with Heavy weight card stock (one 12 x 6" piece and two 6 x 3"). On long side, score at 1 1/2, 3, 9 and 10 1/2". Fold like an easel card on both sides leaving a 6" space in the center (the two 3 x 6" pieces will be glued to the first 1 1/2" section-flush on left outside edge and the 10 1/2" section flush with right outside edge).
Sponge a piece of 6 x 6" decorative paper (with purple dye ink) and glue to center. Die cut Raindrops on Roses die X 2 out of white and add to back panel. Cut out decorative designed rectangle from Classic petunia paper (about 2 3/4 X 4) and stamp Happy Birthday (from Small Classic Petunia stamp set) then glue to a light green piece of decorative paper and glue to the 6 X 6 inside panel. Cut two pieces of decorative paper 2 7/8 X 5 7/8" and glue to the 3 X 6" card stock pieces. Cut gate at gate opening/latch, weave ribbon (dyed seam binding-crinkled) and glue gate pieces to the front two 3 X 6" pieces (be sure not to glue across opening). Make sure ribbon is long enough to open all the way without pulling ribbon out of the gate. Make an extra fluffy/crinkly bow with more seam binding to add to gate above tied bow for more fluff (instead of having to retie a triple bow each time card is opened).
Stamp and die cut Classic Leaf, Blossoms from Birds and Blossoms, Leafy Branch, Small Classic Petunias, Petunia Bouquet, and Regal Hummingbirds. Color Hummingbirds and flowers in basket. Sponge color on basket, and Petunia corner along with the classic leaf, Petunias and blossoms. Form flowers and leaves then add Prills.
Add Liquid Pearls to flower basket. Use a piercing tool to pierce small hole in center of basket then string purple thread to fashion a "rope" hanger and attach basket to top right side. Add classic leaf to left side being sure to keep clear of ribbon (make sure ribbon can still move) then add blossoms and some extra Prills (as if small flowers). Add Petunia corner to top left and then add flowers and leaves and white Prills in various places. Stick foam tape to back of Hummingbird and attach to card.
