Instructions: This card when finished, measures 6 1/4” x 6 1/4”. Taking the white card stock, make a tent fold card base to the above measurements. Using the outer frame from the Stairway Gardens die set, die cut the frame using the lilac card stock. Ink the edges with the Damson Wine ink and the help of a foam inking tool. Find the sheet 11B in the paper collection, trim this a little smaller than the Eyelet Frame and adhere both layers together then adhere this to the card front using the 3D foam tape or foam dots.

Using the Circle Frames die set, the inside circle die from the Courtyard Elegance die set, Lilac card stock, silver paper and the white art foam paper, cut all out once taping both dies together so the placement will always be the same. Adhere together the die cut of the foam paper and the silver paper. Using wet adhesive, adhere this to the centre of the card front. Die cut a circle from the collection paper, sheet 11B then adhere both this circle and the Lilac frame together then ink the edges of the lilac frame with the Damson Wine ink and the help of a foam inking tool. Adhere to the silver frame as shown in the card photo.

To make the embellishments for this card: Using the stamp, colours listed in the other products used list, matching dies and shaping mold for both sizes of the Hyacinth image, prepare at least 32 Hyacinth petals for the two sizes, plus three for the birds branch. Prepare one of the birds on the branch from the Floral Song matching sets. Trim away what is not needed from the branch as shown.

When all is prepared, adhere with the hot glue gun the Hyacinth petals to the Hyacinth bases and the branch end. Now make the sentiment by stamping then die cutting the band from the Ticket and Tag die set. Ink the edges of this band by using the Damson Wine ink and inking tool. Adhere all in place-the Hyacinths, the sentiment band then the bird on the branch.

To finish the card, apply a dot of crystal drops to each flower centre on the Hyacinth’s. Apply a little diamond stickles to the bird and also to each petal on the Hyacinth’s.
