Instructions: Make a tent fold card base measuring 6 3/4” x 8 1/2”. Taking the design paper 9B from the collection pad and cut this a little smaller than the card front. Adhere to the card front with the double sided tape. Taking the paper from the collection pad that is purple and cut the frame using the Lattice Floral Gateway die set. Using the white card stock and the outer tag from the Album Tags & Accents die set to cut the tag frame, use the inner tag die to cut a tag from the paper sheet 9B. adhere all to the card front using the 3D double sided foam tape.

Prepare all the embellishments as follows:- Using the Sepia ink and white card stock for all the stamping, start stamping and die cutting with the matching dies, 1x the trellis, 3x the birdhouse, 1 each of the birds, 1x the largest curved clematis boarder, 2x the straight boarder, 3x the large, 4x the medium and 9x the small sized clematis petals.

Color all the stamped images with the glimmer mists. (Spray a little of the mist on to the pallet or dishes, leave to dry a while so the colour intensifies and the micro colour shows more.) If needed, spritz water to this to be able to paint as you would with water colour inks. You could also use a white plastic sheet or bag as a base to spray on to catch the colors. (When done you can roll the plastic up and keep the excess color for another time.) Bring the glimmer mist on to your work with the water colouring pen/brush ). With this method of colouring, it would be best to first die cut then colour as the inks are very wet and will warp the card stock, which makes it harder to die cut the elements. Use the shaping mold for this collection to bring shape to the clematises then use the shaping tools in the flower centres to raise the petals more. Using the tray as a bead catcher, apply the clear drying adhesive to each of the flower centres, sprinkle the prills onto the adhesive. When dry tap away any excess prills onto the tray.

Adhere all the embellishments in place using the hot glue gun, clear drying adhesive and 3D foam dots or tape. By first adhering the boarders and trellis to the card front. The three birdhouses then the flowers and birds. Find the tag in the paper collection. Stamp the sentiment, then trim the tag to make two banners. Using the crop-a-dile make holes and fussy cut the tops. Apply the Fully Purple glimmer Mist to this, when dry they will curl up on their own. Taking the string, about 6x the width of the card. Fold the length in half so you have two strands to wrap with. Wrap the string twice around the card and attach the tags in the bow. This will stay in place but you could fix it in place with a dot of hot glue.

To finish the card, apply the diamond stickles to the birdhouse outlines.
