Instructions: Cover a 5 x 7 inch card blank with Sheet 11B from the Cascading Petals Paper Collection. Die cut the Royal Elegance Frames Die in white card. Adhere to front of card. Die cut the Decorative Cage in the Luxe Gold Cardstock. Die cut another cage in white cardstock, using the outside edge only. Adhere the gold cage to the white background cage and adhere to the front of the card using foam tape to give some lift.
Take the Floral Song stamp and dies. Stamp the two birdies onto Heartfelt Flower Shaping Paper with Cactus Flower ink, color in with Cactus Flower and Sweet Plum ink, using the Daubers. Die cut with the coordinating dies. Color in the beaks and eyes with a Light Grey Zig Marker. Take the Flower Shaping Tool Kit and lightly shape the birds. Adhere to the cage using foam pads.
Take the Cascading Wisteria stamp and die, stamp onto Heartfelt Flower Shaping Paper with Sweet Plum ink, color in with Sweet Plum ink, Olive Green and Leaf Green inks using the Daubers. Die cut with the coordinating dies.
Take all the leaves from the Cascading Wisteria stamp and die set and stamp onto the Flower Shaping Paper with Olive ink. Color in with Leaf Green ink and Sweet Plum ink, using the Daubers. Die cut with the coordinating dies.
Take the Wisteria Petals stamps and dies, stamp lots of blooms onto the Flower Shaping Paper with the same inks, color in and die cut with the co ordinating dies. Also, make seven blooms with Cactus Flower ink. Place all the blooms in a Flower Shaping Mold, lightly spritz with water, run through a die cutting machine. Tap out and allow to dry. When dry take the Flower Shaping Kit and shape lightly.
To make the hanging Wisteria, pierce a small hole in the center of all the blooms. Take a stamen and thread as many blooms onto the stamen as you feel is right. I used three blooms for a small Wisteria, five for a medium and seven for a large hanging Wisteria. Add hot glue as you go.
Start to decorate the cage with a row of leaves at the top of the cage, a row of Wisteria and a row of three Wisteria. Cut a hanging (heart shaped piece) in half and drape down the side of the card. Adhere a group of three handmade hanging Wisteria down the side.
To finish, adhere the pink flowers either side of the birdies with hot glue. Add mini sticky back pearls to the flower centers. Cut out a sentiment from Sheet 2A from the paper collection, ink the edges in Cactus Flower ink, adhere with Dries Clear Adhesive. Add adhesive everywhere you would like glitter, add glitter. All done.
