Instructions: Card size is 7’ square. Die cut 4 swirly accent sprays using soft suede card and use dries clear adhesive to position along the 4 sides of the card base.
Select and cut a 6” x 6” paper from the collection, adhere to a slightly larger square of soft suede card stock and adhere to the center of the card base using foam pads.
Select and cut a 3.75” x 4.75” panel from the paper collection and adhere to a slightly larger piece of soft suede card. Adhere to the center of the card base using foam pads. Cut a 2.75” x 1.25” panel of paper, mount onto a slightly larger piece of soft suede card and adhere to the top left of the center topper approx. .5” from the top. Cut the “have a beautiful day” sentiment and adhere directly to this panel – tucked under the central topper.
Die cut the “love” label, thread with thin twine and adhere to the top right of the card.
Stamp the window, birds and hydrangeas in stazon ink. Colour the window using soft suede ink and a dauber. Use water pen to blend the colour on the cross panels of the shutters. Die cut the window and edge with soft suede ink to add shading.
Use the zig markers to colour the birds and hydrangeas and die cut. Edge the leaves with mossy meadow ink and flowers with blue berry bushel. Shape using the flower shaping tools.
Bend the shutters up slightly to give dimension and position the window, flowers and birds onto the front of the card. Hot glue into place.
Lightly sponge dries clear adhesive onto the flowers, sprinkle with crystal glitter and remove excess.
